July 19th: When we got back from Estes and were unloading Jen's stuff at her house, we noticed this beautiful butterfly in her garden...such a beautiful creature!

Game night! We played Catchphrase and Cranium...we always have such a great time!
Busy scrappin!

This hummingbird was so beautiful..and almost flew into the house!!

July 18th: Another fun filled day in Estes Park!

July 17th: We are in Estes Park for our annual scrapbook club "retreat" to the Chisholm's cabin. Jen, Allison and I decided to play golf this year (after talking about it for a few years!). We played at the nine-hole course by Lake Estes and had such a blast. I think this will be tradition from now on!

July 16th: Another breakfast at the Silver Grill with Jen, the girls, and Aunt Patsy. Always so much fun!

July 15th: Addy's babysitter is on vacation, and Mom was watching her today. We decided to go to the flea markets to look around (only made it through 1), and then went to 5 Guys Burgers and Fries for lunch. This is Addy messing around during lunch!

July 13th: My favorite place to eat out...Panera! I love the "U pick 2" and usually get half an Asiago Roast Beef sandwich and half a Chicken Cobb yummy! I also like that they have free wireless internet and can sit there as long as I like!!

July 12th: Zoe and I went to Bath Garden Center to see the "performing pigs!" The crowd wasn't as big as I thought it was going to be (but we were at the last show). Zoe really enjoyed watching the show and was laughing the entire time : )

July 11th: I walked out of Walmart this afternoon, and this is what the sky looked like!

July 8th: I love when Jake lays on his back, because he doesn't do it very often. I just happened to catch him doing it today!

July 7th: Today I took Zoe to the Fort Collins Museum/Discovery Science Center for a new program they started called the "Knee High Knapsack Club." Zoe and I got to look for "bugs" in the grass (colored pasta), and Zoe and a little boy named Jack were paired and used magnifying glasses to search for real bugs in the lawn. She had so much fun and we are definitely going back next week!

July 6th: A new Burger King opened up right down the street from my house. Today I met Mom and Dad there for lunch....they had one of these crowns at every table!

July 4th: We drove over to Jeremy and Sheri's for a bar-b-que before riding out bikes to Rebecca's house right by city Park. It rained for a while, and we weren't sure that they would have the show, but it cleared up and turned into a nice night. We were able to just sit on Rebecca's from lawn and watch the fire works from there. The show was great, and the kids did really well!

July 3rd: Jen and I took the girls on some errands tonight, and on the way to Blockbuster to get Zoe a Scooby movie, I turned around and found her passed out! She rarely falls asleep in the car, but she was with Aunt Patsy all day, and I am sure they played hard!

July 2nd: Today, we took a private tour of New Belgium (thanks for setting it up Jared!). The tour guide used to work with mom at the bank, and did a fantastic job. I am so thankful that we had this opportunity, and that we have such a great company in town!

July 1st: Uncle Tom and Aunt Kathy were here for a visit before heading up to Estes for the Remboldt family reunion and we decided to play Balderdash tonight. Dad and I ended up tying, but it was a lot of fun!!

June 27th: I went to Jen's today and saw this baby bird on the arm of a chair in her front yard. It stayed there all day...we weren't sure if it was hurt or not, so we gave it some water and called the wildlife division of the humane society (although they never called back). Eventually, it moved off the chair into the yard!

June 26th: Look cavities!!! I went to the dentist today for my 6 month cleaning, and everything was great. I had a new hygenist who was a little my mouth hurt the rest of the day..but there's nothing like the clean feeling in my mouth right after a visit to the dentist!

June 25th: I love NCIS. My mom had told me about this show before, but I didn't think it sounded very good. Boy, was I wrong! I happened to catch it when USA was having a marathon, and fell in love with it. It is funny and has a great story line!

June 22nd: Oh my gosh...the rivers and lakes here are so full (due to all of the rain we've had in June). This is the Poudre river as seen from County Road 5. I love that the people that live right here tethered up a large float to the bridge!

June 21st: This is actually a photo from last night...the Fort Collins Irish Festival was in town and Jen had given me tickets to go. My friend Julie and I love the Young Dubliners, and they were playing both Sat and Sun, but we only saw them Sun. They always put on such a great show!!

June 20th: Today was the annual Junior League Garden Tour. Jen and I were able to go since our mom got us tickets from work. There were so many beautiful gardens this much fun!

June 16th: My Uncle Bob and Aunt Patsy are moving to a house and trying to rent out their condo. Jen and I went to the condo with them to take pictures and put a post up on Craigslist.

June 15th: Mom and Dad's 35th anniversary! I am so lucky to have two parents who have been married for so long....congrats!!

June 14th: I walked into Jen's house today, and this is what I found...Addy sitting at the table in her winter hat! She didn't want to take it cute!!
