Southern States Road Trip

We have been so excited for our Southern Road trip!  We are going to cross so many States off our bucket list. It began in New Orleans. It was fun to fly over all the swampy Bayous and get our first-ever look at the Mississippi River. Our flight landed, we took a very long shuttle…

Feb 2023 Recap

Super bowl Sunday! All our favorite foods and the raspberry mousse cake we look forward to alllll year. President’s Day weekend at Keystone. Blake opted not to come this time, so we took Max instead! It was quite windy one day and they shut down a few lifts. This resulted in a HUGE line. So…

Cabo San Lucas

Winter vacations to the beach are just the best. This year we left the boys home alone! I was nervous about it–I knew they could handle it–it just feels scary to be that far away from them. They did awesome. Blake missed the bus one morning, but he called Carlie and got it all sorted…

It was an incredible experience for her. Routan is a stunningly beautiful place. The weather was perfect. And she got to…

Christmas 2022

Dec 2022 recap

I have to be honest. It was kind of a boring Christmas season. The boys are busy, and they didn’t really want to do any of our normal advent activities. Not having Halle around is the worst! I need my adventure buddy. Everyone over here is perfectly happy to spend all their time on the…

Halle’s 19th Birthday

Dear Halle, It was a weird birthday for me not being with you! (probably for you too). I did not like it one bit. It’s much more fun to be together. I did send you a birthday in a box. It had a brownie mix, some decorations, a few treats and a gift card. Last…

Josh Turns 16

Dear Josh, Yay! You are a driver! Both you AND I are very excited about this newfound independence. I love watching you learn and grow, make mistakes, and have awesome successes. From hiking a few 14ers, to summiting an active volcano, I’d say it’s been a pretty exciting year. You love to hang out with…
