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.

Happy New Year! We had fun going to downtown again this new year and riding the train with the kids. We had dinner over there and then stayed to watch the fireworks. It was very mild too, which made it even better. Other than that, January just flew by without a lot of exciting things going on. It has been warm and cold, and we have had some snow, but not a lot really. Probably the most exciting thing this year so far is the fact that the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl. So, GO BRONCOS!

December, of course, was a fun month. First, Jason turned 4 on the 18th. He was very excited to receive some presents and blow the candles on his cupcake. We can't believe how fast he is growing. He is a lot of fun to have around. But, the kids really were counting down the days until Christmas, which also came very fast. We all got cool presents and had a good time just hanging around home doing nothing. For new year, we did our traditional light-rail ride to downtown and had dinner over there. We also got to watch the fireworks they do at 9PM for families. 2014 should be an exciting year for us. We will see where we will be living by the end of the year. We are also looking forward to watching the World Cup in June/July.
