Jason just came home from work, and I asked him if he was going to cook “the dogs,” referring to the hot dogs that are in our refrigerator and are going to go bad in a few days. He picked Daisy up and started carrying her outside towards the grill. His comment: “Yes, I am going to start with the small one.” Funny Jason!

Our Camping Trip

Our trip in pictures!

Our little cabin

Mmmmmm, smores! I want another one already!

Making smores

Daisy and Oscar were good little campers. There were two little boys next to us who LOVED the pugs! They kept coming over just to pet them. Needless to say, the pugs loved that! So cute!

One of the many scenic overlook areas

Daisy wanted to see too!

You can’t really see it in this picture, but there were a herd of elk grazing in this meadow. Off to the right of the herd, there was a momma coyote nursing her baby coyotes.

A beautiful mountain valley with a stream winding through

See, you all need to come visit!!!

First off, a big thanks to all of you for the happy anniversary wishes! We had a great time and enjoyed “Wicked.”

We are having a GREAT GREAT GREAT weekend–I wish every weekend was a long weekend! Friday night we ran errands and rented “Catch and Release” with Jennifer Garner. It was okay, I wasn’t overly excited about it. The storyline didn’t develop well, but it had a happy ending. Saturday morning, we slept in and then went for a bike ride. Yes, I started my biking career this weekend, and it is pretty hard work! We are planning to ride in a 30 mile ride at the end of the summer for the American Diabetes Association, which is good incentive to get out there and practice. I hope I can make 30 miles by then! Saturday afternoon we took a LONG (like 3-4 hours long) nap, which was much needed! I can’t remember what we did the rest of the day, but it must have been enjoyable and relaxing!

Sunday was church and then errands and then leaving for an overnight camping trip! This trip was spur-of-the-moment, which is not typically like us, but Jason has been so excited to camp this summer. So off we went! We stayed in a KOA campground (I know, hardly roughing it) in a cabin with a real bed! And there were real bathrooms and showers there! We made smores and sat by the fire then went to bed. Today, we made a run to Starbucks and then packed up for a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park! This is the first trip we have made there but in no way will be our last. It is so beautiful! Dogs aren’t allowed many places there, so we kept the trip short, but we definitely plan to go back for hiking and camping.

It has been such a great weekend, very relaxing and just what we needed. Now back to work–but only for four days!

Seattle Day #4

Our last day in Seattle was a pretty low-key day. We went shopping at Ikea (see Shannon!) and the mall. We had Vietnamese soup for lunch and hung out with the neighbors for a few minutes in the afternoon.

In the backyard at Jason’s parents’ house. Isn’t it so green?!

I had a great time loving on the dogs. The little one is Zoey and the big one is Ebony. They are so sweet!
We flew out Tuesday evening–the Seattle airport has had some renovations and is really beautiful! There is a great food court and lots of fun shops, plus a huge window to watch the excitement outside. We arrived back in Denver late Tuesday night and came home to our puppies, who had a wonderful long weekend with Moxie! It was a great trip, and we can’t wait until our next visit!

Seattle Day #3

The Monday we were in Seattle, Jason and I went downtown to the waterfront. I LOVE downtown Seattle. There is just something about being on the water that is so exciting and magical to me. Our first stop was the Seattle Aquarium.

We saw the sea otters (I think that is what they were)–so cute!

We saw the fish from “Finding Nemo”

At the end, there is a really cool display where you can touch a variety of sea creatures. I touched the starfish–they were really hard and bumpy!

Pike Place Market! This is truly one of my very favorite places in Seattle. All of the people, the smells, the food, the fish, the flowers–it makes me so happy! So many different cultures are represented in Seattle, so there are many different types of food in the market. I love it!

I love the floating bridges in Seattle. I had never seen anything like this before I went to Seattle, so it is pretty cool. This one goes over Lake Washington and Mercer Island.

Monday evening we went out to dinner with Jason’s parents and sister and her husband for ALL YOU CAN EAT CRAB! YUM!!! As silly as it sounds, this is truly one of the highlights of our trip each time. The crab is so fresh and so good–much better than you can find anywhere in Denver. We stuff ourselves silly, but it is worth it! Monday was a great day!!!

Today Jason and I are celebrating our fourth anniversary! In some ways, it feels like we have been married for so much longer than that, and in other ways, it feels like it was just yesterday.

Our marriage continues to get better and better each year, and we are so excited to see what the future holds for us. We are going to see the musical “Wicked” tonight to celebrate–everyone says it is phenomenal. I love you, Jason, and I look forward to many more years with you!

Today is Daisy’s 3rd birthday! I can’t believe she is 3 already, and I can’t believe how fast the last 3 years have flown by. This little girl has brought so much joy and happiness to my life and cheered me up when I was feeling down.

We will be celebrating in the next day or two with doggie cupcakes and yummy treats. I love you Daisy!
