A 5th Birthday and Lots Of Yardwork

on June 14, 2018

Hi there! I feel like I need a disclaimer that says: See you in the Fall! Barely a minute to put thoughts together in the Summer!

Quick recap on some things going on….

A pallet of natural bricks showed up at my house last week. Projects Projects Projects.


Made sure to get right to work πŸ˜‰


And because I can never only have one project at a time….refinished my Teak bench.


Looks sooooo good.


More bricks.


Someone thought they were a balance beam.


I got a little break over the weekend when my sister and mom showed up to celebrate a certain little lady’s 5th birthday!


Brooke was SOOOO excited and we did all the things.


On Saturday, Alle and I did a 30 mile ride before we all headed to the lake for some paddle boarding.

On Sunday, we had a reservation for brunch at 11. Someone dressed up!


That face though!!!!


Brunch was on top of a mountain. The views were insane.


Girl loves her Daddy!



Due to some airline issues, Ken ended up taking Alle and my mom to Vail to fly out. They left at 4 am. Ouch.

Brooke and I got to stay home and spend the day cleaning up before heading to ballet. We rode there. Good combo πŸ™‚


Tuesday was Brooke’s actual birthday. We spent the day doing all sorts of fun things. Mini golf, the pool, grocery shopping πŸ˜‰



Got home and celebrated with Jasper.


It was a great day! I even fit in 10 x 1 minute hill repeats good for 4.5 miles of running!

This morning, I got to work on digging some trenches. Always good when you have worn through a glove by mid-June. Ugh.


Nice trench next to the back of the house to run some pipe. It is a foot deep. Be jealous.


More trenches for more bricks. I’m tired.


And it appears a fire hath started. Again. Mid-June. Scary.


And that’s about it! There have been many other workouts in there, I am just too tired to think about when πŸ™‚

Hope you are having an amazing summer!!

    Happy Birthday Brooke!

    There is nothing quite like a 5th birthday. What is funny is that I am one month (exactly) from my 28th birthday and there are times where I wish I could go back to being 5. Summers are just not the same when you’re an adult.

    When your sister and mom flew in, did they fly into Denver originally and drive to the boat or did they actually get to fly into Craig?

      Thank you! And that’s awesome! Birthdays are so fun! But I agree, summers were way more fun when I was little πŸ˜‰
      They flew into Hayden (the Steamboat airport). Doesnt always work out, but it is convenient when it does!

      • Lindsay says:

        Shoot … I don’t know why I said Craig. I have been through Hayden so many times at this point … but even the best forget things sometimes! lol.

        Did Brooke ask for anything special for her bday? What is your favorite Bday treat? I honestly LOVE me some birthday cake (it a vehicle for eating large amounts of FROSTING)!! πŸ™‚

        Have a great night.

        She wanted a Fur Real-this adorable tiger that responds to you. I think I may love it as much as her!
        My birthday is the day after Christmas, so it is surrounded by lots of food. I am a big fan of ice cream pie. Yummmmm! But I feel ya on the frosting πŸ˜‰

      • Lindsay says:

        Lol … my dad’s goddaughter asked for one of those Fur-Real animals for christmas and of course we got it for her (Kylie) …. Kylie is so scared of the thing that I think we get more enjoyment out of playing with it than she does.
        p.s. What in the world is Ice Cream Pie (you’ve caught my attention)!!
