It’s Thanksgiving, and we’re sitting in the airport waiting for our flight to Dallas. We’re spending the weekend with Matt & Erin & Evie, so we’re excited because we rarely get to see them.

What have we been up to lately? Well, we went camping a couple of weekends ago. We were supposed to hike the next day, but unfortunately, the 1991 book I got from the library didn’t come through for us. Instead, we came across Cheesman Lake. It was pretty but not so great when compared to [...]

The last month has been crazy to say the least, hence the blog hiatus. I never blogged about Paris, but maybe I will one day. For now, it’s this summer’s adventures in Denver…and those to come. For July 4 weekend, we went to Denver. I had some work to do, so we made a weekend [...]
