Marshall Fire

We first heard about the Marshall fire from a friend texting to let us know what was going on while we were still in Utah. Not a wildfire, like a firestorm sweeping through suburban neighborhoods of superior and Louisville. There were wind gusts up to 100 mph and the fire spread in minutes. Entire neighborhoods,…

Halle Blogs about other Christmas fun

Meeting baby Finn was definitely a highlight of the trip for everyone. He was so tiny and easy to just hold and snuggle. We all absolutely love him and are so excited he’s a part of our family. Landon and Jhena are being very careful to keep Finn healthy and safe from Covid and RSV.…

Summer in Utah

The kids are going to blog about the main events of the summer, so I’ll take everything else!  First and foremost, meeting baby Cyrus!  We’ve all been anticipating this day.  And it didn’t disappoint.  He is the cutest human on the face of the earth.  Happy 4th of July!  And Happy Birthday Jhena!  We had…

Easter Escape Room 2020

Final Day in Munich

Our last day in Munich started with us cooking breakfast in the Guest Kitchen. This was such a fun feature of our hotel! We were all ready for a break from bread so we had scrambled eggs, kartofulpoffer, fresh berries and juice. It was protein heaven for our carb soaked bodies. We stopped to show…

Halloween 2019

Blake has been growing his hair for months so he could be a very authentic Thor. And I had to buy and return no less than FOUR costumes until we landed on the exact right one. I also got to help with Blake’s school Halloween party in the afternoon. It was my very last elementary…

East Village Foodie Tour

We all slept in the next morning, and after a very slow start, we headed out on our self-guided food tour of the East Village. But first, Blake earned $2 yesterday.  I kept him busy watching for dogs so he wouldn’t mind walking so much.  He got $1 for every 50 dogs he saw.  So…
