Last year we won a small vacation package to Salida, Colorado, but being super pregnant we were not able to take the trip then. Thankfully, most of the package wasn’t expiring until the end of this summer, so we decided to take advantage of it. Nestled in amongst several mountains […]

What to see and do in Salida Colorado

We recently went camping and hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park which is one of our favorite parks in Colorado. We have visited it during winter, spring and now summer. There is so much to see that you could spend an entire year exploring every trail and still not see […]

This 7 Months Baby Update is full of developmental milestones and a scary mysterious illness. Baby R has accomplished so much in the last month! It’s like his neurons and motor coordination are just on steroids right now. As a family, we spent our 4th of July at the farm […]

7 Months Baby Update
