Buena Vista – Hiking & First Maternity Photo Shoot

Buena Vista – Hiking & First Maternity Photo Shoot

Share the Adventure:

We’d been hankering to get back to Buena Vista for some time. Basically we were waiting until the weather was good enough to take the trailer through the mountains to get out there. A glorious weekend presented itself and we were off. It’s interesting to think about the fact that the last time I was in Buena Vista, I was pregnant, but I didn’t know it yet! We also haven’t de-winterized the trailer yet, meaning we don’t have water in…

It’s a Girl!

It’s a Girl!

Share the Adventure:

We’ve since found out that our little one is going to be a GIRL! Here is our announcement: It’s funny because several people including my sister, best friend, and aunt had previously said they thought baby would be a girl. We didn’t know and talking about it multiple times we really had no preference. Some women say they just know, having some kind of feeling or premonition. I really had no such thing and was just eagerly waiting to be…

Holidays 2014

Share the Adventure:

Here are some pictures of our holiday season. I went to Germany for a few weeks to visit with family as it had been too long. We spent a lot of good time hanging out, playing games, eating way too much. I spent most of my time with my Grossmutter, including making (and eating) a lot of yummy German Christmas cookies. Mmm, this looks like it’s dessert but it’s actually lunch! You’ve gotta love Buchteln mit Vanillesosse! This picture is…

We’re Pregnant!

We’re Pregnant!

Share the Adventure:

We found out we were expecting a baby back in November and have been super ecstatic since. This is the announcement we put up on Facebook. We thought using gear was fitting for two climbing enthusiasts. I suppose it’s possible our baby won’t grow up to be a climber (there’s also caving as well!) but we’re going to provide every opportunity for our children to give it a try and grow to love it! The pregnancy has been great so…

Our 2nd New Rental Home

Our 2nd New Rental Home

Share the Adventure:

We’ve been in this new place for awhile now, but this post was written so it might as well get published! I’m just too lazy to take pictures of it right now I guess, so family and friends, you’ll just have to come visit! When we moved into our last rental we thought that after that short 6 month lease was up we’d have bought a house. We even started looking at houses. But in the end, we decided to…

K’s Dad’s Visit

K’s Dad’s Visit

Share the Adventure:

My dad also came for a visit around the end of summer. We did our best to give him a whirlwind tour of the area since he was only here for a weekend.  There are so many things to see in this area that we spent a lot of time driving around and sightseeing. Our first stop the day after he landed was Roxborough State Park.  This place has quickly turned into one of our go-to places for guests that…

C’s Dad’s Visit – Family Time!

Share the Adventure:

My Dad came to visit near the end of the summer. It was really nice to see him and it was a different experience in that he brought his RV and actually had a place to park it next to our house! With his home right next door, K was also able to load him up with numerous bottles of his home brew, which we’ve heard has only gotten better as it has aged in the bottles and has been…

We are Godparents!

Share the Adventure:

This post is way overdue, but we wanted to introduce our godson, L! He is the son of my very best friend L and her husband A. K and I were very excited about his birth and are honored to be godparents to him. We went to visit a few month’s after L’s birth and got in a lot of cuddles. It’s always good to catch up with L and A in person, and this trip was even more special…

Dancing Dog

Dancing Dog

Share the Adventure:

When Maggie is unsure of something and is trying to get close, without totally committing to getting too close, she does the bob and weave dance. It’s hilarious. This video took place after she noticed the garter snake that we sometimes see around our yard go into these rocks. Of course, by the time we let her get close to the rocks, we already knew the snake had moved on and was no longer nearby. Still, she thought it was…

Funny video of Maggie digging in the dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park. We don’t encourage her to dig any other time, but loved her reaction to being on the sand and did egg her on to get this entertaining video.
