Ron's Birthday

This year I decided to theme Ron's birthday. Since I am married to a man-child I thought there is no better theme for his 31st birthday than Transformers!

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

Last month (right after Ron returned from Rhode Island) we decided to drive down to Colorado Springs and partake in the wonderful zoo down there! It was a beautiful day (thankfully the thunderstorm held off until we were headed home) and we had a wonderful time together. We enjoyed the sky ride (which would be considered similar to a ski lift) and was able to see ALL the way to Kansas! ;-) One of the fun activities this specific zoo offers is the opportunity to feed the giraffes. We didn't feed them, but since everyone else was we got an upclose and personal view of each one of them! And boy do they have super long tongues (the kids are such a hoot to watch when they got kissed)! What a super fun day!
Can you see Kansas???
Going down...hang on!

Pucker up!
Am I a white horse w/black stripes or a black horse w/white stripes?

Summer Fun

This summer was a little different. As soon as Ron finished school (actually a few days before the official end of class) he left for ODS (Officer Development School) in Newport, Rhode Island. I will see if I can get a few pictures off his phone and post them for your viewing pleasure. So, while he was gone my parents came up for about a week to keep me company. We went up to Winter Park where The Moffat Tunnel resides. My great grandfather (on my mother's side) helped build this tunnel, so my mom wanted to go check it out. Apparently my mother has a picture of my grandma and her father standing at the mouth of the tunnel as it was being built. So this is a big part of our family history.
While there, we decided to enjoy some of the gorgeous scenery!
We then decided to take a detour and drive through the Eisenhower Tunnel. We just wanted to say we did it! ;-)

Finally, I got to enjoy Father's Day with my daddy...which has been a long time coming. I had such a wonderful visit with them. I am so glad they were able to make it up!
