Special trips

This weekend, we took a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was Sheri, Payton and I. Isaac had his own special trip with Sheri’s parents to Galveston, TX. I will post pictures on that another day.

It was such a great trip! Also, a friend posted about her toddler telling her soon he’d be too big to hold and I just started crying a little when I read it.

Time flies so fast.

As a parent, I balance on a knife edge sometimes between being so proud of the young men my boys are becoming, and a powerful desire to bring them back to toddler-hood (or at least halt time now) so that I can keep them with me forever.

It is truly an amazing (and at times, overwhelming) feeling.

And I love it all!

I am so grateful for my wife, my son Payton and my other son Isaac. I am surrounded by love in this family and I feel embraced at all times.

I am thankful!


Unexpected getaways

This weekend, Payton was scheduled for a soccer game in Canon City (3 hour drive from home), we were informed the game was canceled as we were driving to Colorado Springs. We made a great weekend out of it! We stayed 2 nights at The Broadmoor (our favorite hotel)! We had great food, sang along to ragtime piano, drove through garden of the gods, went bowling, and had an absolute blast! We celebrated our anniversary a month early and The Broadmoor took care of us:-). What a fun, unexpected weekend!
