Memorial Day Menu

Monday, May 26, 2014

After a crazy month, I'm okay with doing Memorial Day on our own. I'm looking forward to sitting down to a nice, home-cooked meal with my family unit, thanking God for the men and women who serve or have served our country.
Our menu today comes straight from Pinterest. You know I'm a big Pinterest meal planner! I thought I would share those recipes with you, and help keep our favorites handy for next time.
Happy and safe Memorial Day!

Denver Trip/Nate & Joelle's Wedding

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Well, another trip to Denver is in the bag. Our main focus was visiting family and shooting/attending Nate and Joelle's wedding, but we did managed to do some touristy things, like experience Casa Bonita and see two days worth of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Other than that, it was just hanging around and visiting. We also went to see "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" with the siblings. Nothing huge this time, but a good visit nonetheless.

The drive down was filled with crazy weather and the drive back included carsickness. The boys did really well, otherwise. I gave them a huge box filled with activities of all sorts and we bought a portable DVD player system that kept them entertained for the 12-hour trip. Luckily, we avoided taking our dogs, thanks to some dear friends who offered to take care of them at the last minute. I can only imagine what the drive would have been like with them. It was already kind of stressful to begin with.

The wedding went rather smooth. You can read more about that here. I just love these two and thoroughly enjoyed sharing their special day with them. Congratulations, Nate and Joelle!

Missing far-away family and looking forward to the next time we can be together.
