Remember when I said that we needed to go into the mountains more often?
30/52/Life - In the mountains.

Yup, totally wasn’t kidding.

We have already been back, and can’t wait to go up again. Next time with our picnic baskets and a snack, or so the kids tell me.


Colorful Colorado (aka 29/52/2013)

Today we decided to introduce our Jeep to the rocks. More specifically, the Rocky Mountain National Park.

It was such a beautiful day in the mountains, and crazy to think that this is only a 10 minute drive from our home.

I must remind myself more often to do this again, and often. 🙂


We had a little mini adventure this weekend as we traveled over to Utah for one of Thom’s Ultra 4 racing events. Before the race Saturday afternoon, the kids and I went swimming… which looked a whole lot like this:

Then we rooted the teams on from the bleachers, which looked alot like this:

And this:

Followed by bedtime, which in hotel rooms, is always fun and looks something like this:

Finally, it was time to head home and kick back:

…and enjoy the ride.

The Little Movie Star {aka: 27/52/2013}

(story as told to me by Molly)

Once there was a movie star…
The Movie Star

…and she had this photographer who followed her around all day while she was living in Paris.
The Photographer

She was there to film a movie about little red riding hood…
Playing the day away.

…but she couldn’t tell anyone the plot, they would have to come see the movie once it was done.
In the mind of a little girl.

Today, however, she was not filming.
28/52/Life - Soaring

Today? She was just there to play.
