Austin and Landon

Riding the longboard... The boys thought this was so much fun. They rode all around the parking lot on their stomachs.

Austin and Landon
Austin had his first sleepover at our house. His buddy Landon came over and spent the night and then I took the two boys to Nickelodeon Live at the FirstBank Center. We sat in the FirstBank suite and the boys loaded up on cookies and popcorn. They were so excited to see Dora and the Backyardigans. We had quite the day.

Hot Air Balloon Festival

We went to the hot air balloon festival in Snowmass, CO up by Aspen. Austin even got to ride up about 30 feet in one of the balloons! He couldn't stop talking about it for days. He kept saying "I rode in the balloon high in the sky".

Looking inside the balloon before it was completely filled with air.

First Day of School!

Austin started preschool on February 22 - the day after his third birthday! He got a Buzz Lightyear backpack for his birthday and was so excited to wear it to school. He was even more excited about getting to ride the bus. He goes two times a week and gets to ride the bus to and from school. He loves riding the bus!! He throws a big tantrum when he has to get off the bus at the end of the day. Silly kid!


We scored a killer deal on a snorkeling adventure. We had two guides take us out in a private boat. One of the guides put Austin in a life preserver and pulled him along the whole entire way from one end of the reef to the other. The second time we snorkeled, we left Austin on the boat with one of the guides while the rest of us went snorkeling. Austin loved it! He waved to us from the side of the boat while we swam away.... no separation axiety what-so-ever!

Spent the first week in February in Cancun, Mexico. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the greatest, but we still had a blast!

I turned around to look at Austin in the backseat and he was eating his Cheez-its with his toes. I busted up laughing and he just got a huge grin on his face and kept right on eating them. Check out the video....

So sleepy....

We had just put Austin to bed and we were downstairs watching t.v. when we heard a loud 'thud' come from Austin's room. I went upstairs and found him completely asleep in this position after falling out of his bed just moments ago.
Austin fell asleep on the floor in our room on his big Lightening McQueen pillow

Nap Time

Austin found the jar of vaseline and went to town on his hair. Wanted to look like daddy I guess:)
After he was done styling his hair he rubbed the excess all over his sheets!

Just woke up from his nap and look how he slept with his shirt wrapped around his back. That has to be uncomfortable.

Fell asleep in his laundry basket. He made sure to have all his blankets and his stuffed dog in there with him:)
Another time I went to wake him up for his nap and he was stuffed inside his pillowcase with the pillow. As soon as he woke up he freaked out because he had no idea what was going on and why he couldn't move... funny kid!

More Fourteeners.... (in reverse order)

We made it! Green grass is a good indicator that we are down at the bottom and finally finished with our trek. I was done with the rocks. The way down was so steep and just a bunch of loose rocks. We had to rock slide down most of it....crazy!
Very fun...but so glad we were finally done!

Yay! Mt. Bross... last and final of the four. Finally get to head all the way back to the car. We can see in the background of the picture of to the right is Mt. Democrat. That was the first mountain we started with. Talk about a long ways!! It was so cool to look back and to see every peak we summitted that day.

Me and Ash... so much fun!
