Fly by February

on February 20, 2019

Hey there! How’s your February been? As a huge contradiction to the January that seemed to go on FOREVER….February has absolutely flown by.  I threw pictures on here on February 11th. Clearly that went well 😉

Things have been going well. Pulled in a bunch of different directions at the moment, but trying to manage it with some form of normalcy.

Just over here making grabbers…Thanks, KiwiCo for the fun boxes that make Brooke’s day! (not sponsored-just really enjoy them!).

She moved up an age group and enjoyed the new challenge. Me too 😉

Two weekends ago, we went down to Fort Collins for a shopping trip and a bike race. Ken is building out his trailer for his new business venture so we spent a solid 3 hours at Home Depot.

But seriously, thank goodness I always bring food.

On Sunday, Ken raced the Old Man Winter Rally in Lyons. It was incredibly cold at the start and I felt very lucky that Brooke and Jasper got to hang out with Errin and Colin.

While Ken was out racing, I drove up the canyon and ran 10.5 miles on the course so I got to see him twice! The first time he was with a group and then 1.5ish hours later, he and his buddy were off the front!

I even made it back to the finish in time for him to roll through. He lost the sprint to his buddy (who he has been racing against for about 8 years-and who is 10 years younger than him), but he was thrilled with how the race went and excited about his fitness.

Technically, there were supposed to be timed segments but their system did not work. Had it worked, Ken would have taken the win (note: this fact was brought up my the friend that beat him). But Ken is very humble and took it in stride and was just as happy for his friend. That’s what I love about him 😉

We enjoyed most of last week hanging out and embracing the snowstorms. We did a TON of baking (and, er, eating).

My plant turned 1 year old. It is doing amazingly well and I feel like I should win some sort of prize. Normally, I kill them.

Valentine’s day brownies…

Brooke and I took advantage of the midweek powder day 🙂

She now skis powder and trees.

She was sent some sweet Valentine’s Day gifts. I think Dinosaur is her love language!

My workouts have been pretty killer and this is what I looked like last Thursday BEFORE I ran. Joys of double days with skiing in the middle! ha!

On Friday, we went out. I know, pick your jaw up off the floor. We are such homebodies, but we figured Brooke would enjoy the hot air balloons! It took her a bit to warm up to them, but once she did-she loved them! They were pretty awesome up close, though I have no desire to go up in one!

This week has been pretty busy with work, but we have managed to fit in some fun.

We are actually dog and horse sitting this week for our neighbors. He looks adorable, right?

IMG_8682

He is. He is even cuter now that we are working on the whole listening thing.

Not as cute: firewood destruction.

And today we ventured into the world of Papier Mache.

Ken is at a fat bike race this evening. Since the predicted temp is 8 degrees, we opted out of the cheering section. 😉 We will cheer from the 75 degree house!

And there you have it! Hard to believe that February ends next week?! Say what?!
