Summertime Part 2

It's so crazy to think that Summer has come and gone. We had the best summer. Steve worked a little on his thesis, but mostly we had a lot of freedom to come and go and enjoy Colorado, Fort Collins, and family! We made a point to be intentional this Summer, so I created a Summer Bucket List so that we wouldn't forget to do things that we meant to do last Summer. Steve was really good about making sure to get stuff checked off the list, although there were still a few things we missed that will go on our Fall Bucket List and next Summer's. So what the remaining of our Summer looked like was a lot of fishing (for Steve and Christian,) an additional camping adventure with Lucas added to the mix, evening walks, playing at the park, several visits to Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock, a Rockie's Game, a trip to Vail with Steve's family, farmer's markets and festivals, hiking at Horsetooth Falls, a trip with my family to Glenwood Springs, a day trip to Estes Park, ice cream (both homemade and from TCBY and Dairy Queen,) and lots of barbecuing! Basically a blissful Summer!

Christian's 5th Birthday Party

One of Christians favorite shows is Scooby-Doo. He likes to set traps in the house like Fred to catch monsters. So it only seemed fitting to have a little family gathering and Scooby-Doo party for Christians 5th birthday! We had Scooby snacks, hotdogs, brats, puppy chow, cupcakes, and other munchies. Christian and his cousins enjoyed a mystery hunt to find the missing Scooby-Doo (which was actually their Scooby-Doo party favor bags) with clues outside and throughout the house. The kiddos mostly enjoyed playing, eating, and running about. It was such a fun afternoon celebrating our sweet 5 year old!
