It has been so busy, we almost forgot about August. We got to do quite a bit last month. Kids finally went back to school. They are enjoying their new school. Right before going back to school, we took the kids to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, in Colorado Springs. It was really cool. We enjoyed feeding the animals. We were going to go camping too, but we were too tired and decided to postpone it. At the end of the month we got to go back to Colorado Springs for a half marathon race. Kids always enjoy staying there overnight at the hotel. We are now looking forward to seeing the fall colors come our way. Snow is around the corner too.

July was such a fun month. We started by going to Utah on a short vacation/visit family type of a trip. We had fun doing a lot of things and seeing just about everything we wanted to see. It was good to come back to Colorado afterwards. We stopped in the mountains and stayed one night at a hotel there. The kids had a lot of fun. We also got to go camping during July. We went to Devil's Head. Weather was perfect. We had a great dinner there and got to sleep among huge rocks. It is beautiful up there. Our original spot was closed due to bears in the area, but we still had a blast. We are planning on going camping again in the next 2 weeks or so. The kids will be starting school again soon. They will be going to their new school. It will be good for them (and us) to get back on a schedule.

June was another eventful month. First, we had Kylie's 10th birthday. We can't believe how big she is. She had fun inviting a few friends over and we also celebrated the next day amongst ourselves. We spent a lot of time outside during June too now that the weather is nice. One of our favorite things to do in June is to go see the B-17 fly in to Centennial airport. The kids got to play with all kinds of things there and we were able to see the B-17 land and take off. We continued to do a lot of work around the house - mostly painting - and we will continue to do so for a while. July will be another fun month. We just got back from Utah and we will have great pictures to post next month.

May was a very fun month. We are now starting to feel the summer coming. We have been having lots of storms and tornado warnings, and our grass looks very green. The biggest event this month was Austin's baptism. We had grandparents on both sides of the family come to Denver for that. It was a great day and a very nice ceremony. Austin had his best friend, Kelly, there as well as her 2nd grade teacher. We also did our annual Memorial Day hike. This time we went to a new state park we found online. It was really good and fun. The kids are great hikers. We will keep on doing this every year. Kylie is turning 10 in June, so we are excited to celebrate with her.

April came and went very fast. We enjoyed the first signs of Spring too. But, mostly, we were very busy with the new house. We have done a lot of painting, fixing, organizing, cleaning, etc., etc., etc. We did get to put everything away in time for our first Easter here. The kids had fun looking for eggs in new places and in a much larger area than in the past. We look forward to having great weather in May, some rain, and to Austin's baptism.

What a month March was! We are finally in our new home. It was a hard move. Lots of travel in between and small windows of time to get everything done. But, we are happily settled in our new home and looking forward to getting to know our neighbors and new ward. The big event in March was Austin's 8th birthday though. He has gotten big. We had a quiet cake-blowing the candles-deal. He invited his best friend, Kelly too. It was fun. Austin will be getting baptized on May 3rd. So we are looking forward to it. For the rest of this month, and probably next, we will be busy with many projects around the house as well as running around enjoying spring.

February was a quick month. Mostly cold, but with a few days of 50s and 60s. We had a chance to go sledding with the kids. That was fun. It's amazing they didn't crash into anybody there. They came close. The biggest thing that happened this month though is that we bought a new house and sold our current house, all in the span of 10 days. We actually sold our home in about 2 hours. We are excited for the change, which will happened at the end of March. The kids will have much more room and we will be in a very nice area. We will go to a new ward and a new stake too. We will see how things go. Austin is turning 8 on March 4 too, so that is a big milestone. He will be getting baptized in the new ward on May 3rd.
