more updates

round two of planting grass! hopeful that straw would hold in some moisture and protect the seed, we spread it all over the backyard (a task that for some reason i thought was kind of fun). but it turns out that it is, of course, no match for the pueblo wind. seriously, the day after we laid the straw we had a few days of hurricane winds. i am sure our neighbors were all watching us from their windows thinking " no!!!! please
stop, that is all going to end up in my yard!"..... and it did :)
our friends invited us to their cabin in cucharra and we had a great time. we went on a 3 hour hike, packing the boys the whole way. of course there were still 3 foot snow drifts and a whole forest full of fallen trees. but the boys did great and i am going to say that we did too! it was fun and really pretty. thanks petersons!

so carter gave max his first black eye. it was an un-witnessed assaultallegedly involving carter, a vacuum extension and max's face:( i was at work and the kids were playing in the basement. i can only hope it was an accident!
when i came home from work the other day, i turned onto our road and saw a single head light. i thought i was odd and assumed it was a four-wheeler or something. but who should meet me along the roadway but tyrell and the boys on our riding lawn mower. those boys like to ride anything!
