The Missing Month

Oh, hey. A whole month blew by. Wow.

Here are a few {million} pictures from the past month-ish…I will try to nail the highlights. Things have been busy. Really busy. Need a vacation, busy.

But enough of that…In {mostly} chronological order…

Ken jumped into a mountain bike race in Denver. Mountain bike nationals happen to be about 1.5 hours from our house this summer so Ken hopped into a qualifying race in case he wants to race later this month. He did okay.

It snowed. {Spoiler alert…It snowed a LOT this spring/summer}.

Brooke is quite the artist. One night she brought this to me. I couldn’t even come close to this!

IMG_9575

More snow.

We ventured to Sheridan, Wyoming for a gravel bike race/camping trip. Normal camp essentials: Giant bear and lite beer.

IMG_9635

This girl was ripping around on her bike!

IMG_9637

It was a 100 mile race and I could bore you with details, but…. I actually raced it and had a blast. Ended up 4th overall for women and 2nd in my age group. It was a rush! Finished 100 miles in under 6 hours.

Ken raced really strong and due to some tactics ended up second overall, but with a killer workout!

That camp life.

We spent a couple of days camping with my parents-in-law and had a blast. This kid loves to camp (so does the creepy photo-bomber dog).

Got in a 7 mile run. It was GORGEOUS!

When we got home, Brooke decided she didnt want to deal with the struggles of long hair tangles for the rest of the summer, so we chopped her locks. I miss the long a little, but we are loving the low maintenance style!

IMG_9667

IMG_9668

Got in a few good rides.

IMG_9700

Yanked out a baby tooth (her big tooth was coming in and the dentist was going to pull it, so we bribed Brooke with a toy instead of paying the dentist to do it and she let me pull it out).

IMG_9704

As much golf as possible.

IMG_9710

Some railing building.

IMG_9715

We celebrated this girl turning 6. How it happened, I dont know.

IMG_9732

IMG_9737

For real mountain bike!

IMG_9753

Her own paddle board (maybe, spoiled.)

IMG_9761

IMG_9767IMG_9768

Has yet to sleep without her giant dino!

IMG_9772

(Yes, on her birthday we started with paddle boarding and finished with golf-her request).

IMG_9779

Put together our porch swing!!

IMG_9790

The rivers are raging!

IMG_9798

Brooke got a dino taco holder for her birthday (thanks, Alle) so she has been requesting them.

IMG_9813

More railing building.

IMG_9814

Helpful when it snows.

Representing our race.

Home school end of the year party!

IMG_9834

And then, for the first 3 days of summer…..yeah.

IMG_9839

IMG_9856

Birthday party goodness.

IMG_9871

And extra sass.

IMG_9874

Finally, sunshine!

IMG_9902

We hosted a ride from our house last weekend (third year in a row). There were 28 riders who did 110 miles and 9k of climbing. I headed out into the middle of nowhere with drinks and food about 13 miles from the end (the last climb is rough). Had a little search party for a couple of guys. Another successful bike event/party!

IMG_9906

On Sunday, Errin, Colin and I met up with my friend Kelly for our own adventure ride! It was awesome and I ended up with 84 miles on the day (with a stop for beer and fries around 60 miles in!).

IMG_9913

Other than the normal craziness, those are the highlights of what has been happening!

Hope that you are having a great (slightly less crazy) summer!!
