Coloring

Meg has been very interested in coloring and drawing for many months now. In the last month or so, she has started to transition from just scribbling to coloring in the lines. Here a couple pictures from a restaurant in September.IMG_2883

North Table Mountain

Clare has been hiking North Table mountain regularly for the last several months. On Tuesday we hiked it all together as a family for the first time. Spencer made it up the steep climb all by himself. I ended up carrying Meg quite a bit of the way, but she walked some too. It was relatively warm and sunny, though windy. On the way back down it started hailing just a few minutes before we got to our car.

Clare and I spent a romantic weekend in Ridgway, Colorado a couple weeks ago, as a combined birthday present for me and Christmas present for Clare. It was very relaxing. It was our first journey to southwest Colorado; we liked it so much we want to go back. We really lucked out with the weather. The mountains were covered with snow, but the roads were clear, and the sky was bright blue. It was about a 5-6 hour drive. We checked out Ouray, drove along the million dollar highway, and enjoyed the thermal pools at the Chipeta Sun Spa. The Chipeta resort was really beautiful. We really enjoyed the large logs in the ceilings, and the solarium. The breakfast was very nice, and the service was great. The only downside is that the bed was not very comfortable.
