A Taste of the DNC on the 16th Street Mall

In: Adventures, Family

Amy and I took the kids down to the 16th Street Mall last night to take in the sights and the chaos as people descend on our fair city for the Democratic national Convention.  For those of you that can’t be here, this is for you. Oh, and I’m going to Mile High to see […]

Tale of a Turtle

In: Adventures, Family

On our recent trip to South Dakota, there were quite a few exciting moments. Bears brushed up against our car in Bear Country USA, the police came to visit us because someone thought they saw a “domestic disturbance” in our car and a hike to split rock resulted in our being covered with ticks. Despite […]

My New Garbage Disposal

In: Family

This morning we awoke to find a little blood on the kitchen floor. It was coming from our now 11 week old puppy, Diablo. We took her to the vet and they kept her a while for some tests. When they finally called, some x-rays showed what looked like rocks in her stomach. Uh oh. […]

Vitamin Water!

My cousin Josh works in the marketing department for Vitamin Water. When he was in town a few weeks ago I mentioned how much I loved his product, which I really do.

Gender Bender

In: Family

Amy took Diablo to puppy class the other day and found out that he… well, is a she. Oops. Something was mentioned at the Pet Store about the puppy being male, and I never bothered to look that closely. I respect her privacy. A conversation from the movie Gross Pointe Blank: Debi: So, is there […]

A Weekend in the Mountains

In: Family

When Amy was a little girl, she and her family used to go up to these little cabins in the Poudre River Canyon. For a nostalgic adventure we loaded the kids and dogs up into the Subaru for a quick trip. The cabins were nice, but small. They had cold running water and a stove […]

Family Expansion: Dante & Diablo

In: Family

As I was heading out from my appointment to make an appointment to get a root canal, my phone rang. Amy extended a very innocent sounding invitation to come look at puppies at PetSmart with the kids, they were right around the corner. I headed over and found my kids playing with this adorable puppy. […]

Disneyland Photos, Finally

In: Family, Miscellaneous

I’m a slacker blogger, but I’m OK with that. Life has been very busy lately, and next month is looking to be even busier. I managed to upgrade my WordPress install and I am so excited to play with it that now you get pictures. Lucky you! The trip was great fun. After several weeks […]

I’m Going to Disneyland!

In: Family

A couple of weeks ago Mason got to go on an impromptu day trip with Grandma Susie to Disneyland. He had a great time and brought back a present for Madeleine. During discussion around the event I told my mom that I didn’t really remember my trip to Disneyland for some reason, which is strange […]
