We went camping as a family at Cherry Creek State Park for 2 days and had so much fun.  The campsite was only 15 minutes from our apartment and had flushing toilets, win!  The kids had a blast playing in dirt and eating lots of junk food :).

Eating Little Caesar's pizza for dinner

Jaxson and Kiah loved sleeping in their sleeping bags and slept so good! 

We saw this elk while driving around our campground and the kids loved watching him

Going on a hike

I love how messy she always was


Eating breakfast and drinking hot chocolate

Kiah found the winter hat I brought for her just in case it was freezing and insisted on wearing it even though it was in the upper 70's

I introduced the kids to a family favorite of mine, Don't Eat Pete.  They loved it, especially the eating the M&M's part.

Trying to take a family selfie :)


We bought some fun stamping kits from the dollar store.  I thought it would be a good independent activity while I laid down for a minute, WRONG!  (I'm pretty sure Jaxson contributed by putting the stamp on her forehead).

We found a fun new park with a creek and a splash pad.  Jaxson surprised me by going through the big fountains and getting soaked.

We bought Kiah a coat second hand and they had to try it on to see who it fit better :)

We always love a fun day at the Children's Museum

Silly faces at breakfast

Silly kids dressed up for church

We went on a bug hunt for preschool.  We lucked out and found a bunch of ants munching on some spilled popcorn.

Kiah loves her rain boots even though they are 3 sizes too big :)

The kids love riding the carousel at the zoo

It was a rainy day at the zoo, but we found some relief in the Tropical Discovery looking at the fish and reptiles.


Jaxson started his first year of preschool in August!  We are doing a simple preschool with 3 other moms.  It is 2 days a week and each mom teaches for a week then we switch.  Jaxson is so excited to start and learn new things.  Kiah also thinks she is in preschool and had to pose for the camera as well :).
