We have decided to create a little blog about our family. Mainly as a way to share what is going on, with our friends and family, who we miss and don't get to see too often. Our family is growing up so fast and we want make sure that no one misses our every accomplishment.

Saturday the 4th was my moms 50th birthday. My stepfather is in Siberia on an extended business trip, and though he was very disappointed to miss her special day we were so happy that my mom decided to spend her birthday with us. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us and our plans didn't really work out. Instead we did a little shopping, and we went to a restaurant and had a nice dinner. Overall I think she had a very nice birthday, I mean who wouldn't want to spend it with the best grandbaby in the world?
Brady loved his Grandma reading books to him.
Sunday we went to church and lunch then relaxed and played together.
Monday we went to Boulder, Co. We were going to go on Saturday but because of the weather we pushed our trip to Monday. Boulder is the home to the University of Colorado, it is a very interesting, liberal, but a beautiful city. We went to a park that looked over Boulder and saw the beautiful scenery and got some great pictures. We then went to the Doshanbe tea house, a landmark in boulder, and had lunch. http://www.boulderteahouse.com/ Finally we went shopping, and enjoyed the fun city.
Tuesday we went to go hiking at a local place called Glen Eyrie. http://www.gleneyrie.org/ They have gorgeous grounds and a huge castle. We even saw big horn sheep, I thought one might ram the car! Because we did not make reservations we didn't get to tour the castle but hiking was just as much fun. The hike was certainly a HIKE. We must have crossed over the stream on rocks and logs 20 times, and with a 7 lb pack and almost 20 lb baby it was a workout. It was so worth it, the trail lead though a canyon to a waterfall. From there you could hike a 1/4 mile straight up to three cool ponds that are right next to one another. We weren't able to do that part, Brady and I would have tumbled down the mountain, but the waterfall was enough. After our hike, my mom was nice enough to watch Brady while Jeremy and I went on a date to a nice dinner and a movie.
