More Landscaping, a Couple Big Rides, Accidental Long Run…Pretty Much Summertime

on July 6, 2018

Well, hello there!!

Yes. It has been a hot minute. Or two.

Life got real busy there for a sec, but we are back. For a least a couple days, anyway.

Not really sure how to catch up with so much lost time, so I just uploaded the pics I have and I will try to hit a few highlights??

It’s been hot.


And a little weird.


We got some dirt delivered.


The kids were happy….my back…not so much ๐Ÿ˜‰


Been to town a few times….


Built a bookshelf!


Ken was all about the cutting and installation…I did the wood prep.

A barn caught fire and there was a minute that we were nervous that it was a wildfire.


Staining business.


There were several days where I ended up on the floor at the end of the day.

And then somehow ended up on the trainer at 8:30 at night. With beer.


Fit some school work in with our watermelon eating (plus grading until 11 for a lot of nights).


Finished product!


Our neighbor installed our crown molding in the kitchen.


Hosted Ken’s Big Ride 2nd edition (110 miles on gravel with a pizza stop in the middle and dinner afterwards). Brook and I went to Costco on Thursday and then cleaned and prepped for people on Friday. Luckily my sister-in-law and her husband came up and while he did the ride, she helped with all of the food! 20+riders and then some families for dinner. Always a good time. Always good when it’s done ๐Ÿ˜‰


Made a pinata because I could find a bike one that was under $68.


Mexican themed food=classy decor.


The following day Errin and I rode our own 102 miles. It was great. I took 1 picture. Ken ended up having a meeting about a bike race (details later) so we ended our ride in town and hopped in some friend’s pool and had a BBQ. That was a little bit perfect!


Brooke got some cool clothes from a neighbor. Uhhh.


Jasper trying to beat the heat.


On Monday, E and C were still here so we floated the Yampa River and it was glorious.

Wednesday (Fourth of July!!), Ken was offย  and our company had left. We opted to head up to the Zirkel Wilderness for a hike/run. Ken hiked with Brooke (so much patience required) while I ran for a bit and then would run back and meet up with them. 11 miles for me. Pretty excited with how it felt considering the 100 mile ride a few days earlier.

It was gorgeous and well worth it.





That lake was COLD, folks.


Hot dog.


We had a great time!

Last night we had dinner with friends who are moving to Switzerland. No biggie. Brooke and I made sure to visit the pool to prepare ๐Ÿ˜‰

It has been a busy couple of weeks (complete with full on landscaping-pics to come!). We have baby grass starting to peek up through the dirt. We are all sufficiently exhausted and ready for some fireworks on Saturday night!

I think I need a vacation! Traveling to Ken’s BIG bike race of the summer next week. That counts as a vacation, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope that you have been having a fantastic summer and doing all the fun things!!

    You seem to have such an exciting life … yep, I am sure to you it sounds boring because it’s just life … but I would love to be outside more often BUT there isn’t much to do here in the midwest during the summer besides public pools (not a huge fan) or inside activities … not a huge fan of sitting all day everyday either! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I can’t wait till our mountain trip in October. Might already have a countdown going ALREADY!

      Hahahaha. I may trade the word exciting for exhausting ๐Ÿ˜‰ We try to fit in a lot of things in the summer. Winter makes a lot of outdoor projects hard….I grew up in Ohio/Kentucky. Totally feel ya on the summers in the midwest! And yay for October. Such a great month to be in the mountains!!!!
