Enjoying some hoppin’ john on new year’s. Nothin’ like some delicious black-eyed peas, rice and collards to start the year off right.
I rode the school bus up to the Longmont Museaum with Liam and his first grade class to see the Day of Dead Exhibit. It was beautiful and touching to see all of the love and care that went in to each display.

Tractor-wagon ride through the fields….always a joy….

If it’s possible, the second child seems to grow up even faster than the first. It’s so crazy not to have a baby running around the house…not to have to watch the stairs or pick up small items that might get shoved in the mouth. While I miss that I’ll never experience those years again….it’s also so exciting to experience the world anew each day through their eyes…..
Like last year….Jack begged to have his birthday at the gym. We enjoyed the rings, bouncy castles, bars and probably spent most of our time in the foam pit. Jack’s choice for dessert was ice cream cake from his favorite shop, Sweet Cow. Yum.
We enjoyed a spectacular trip in London…completely oblivious to the rains beginning in Boulder. We returned home to find ourselves in the middle of what turned out to be the largest and most destructive flood we’ve seen….
Here are just a couple of pictures from a place we frequently run, bike and walk…..
Just me and Will.
Casual walks, sleeping in, shows, museums, sites, talking over wine and dinner.
Thanks to our families for all their help so we could do this!
