#10 – Completion of our kitchen!  The backsplash was the last remaining item to finish our remodel project from 2012.

#4 – Lots of camping!  With the fire bans in 2102 and little camping because of it, we took full advantage to camp as much as possible, especially being able to do good off-roading in Fern.  The below photo was camping with the 2 oldest Girard girls, Eva and Elise, near Rocky Mountain National Park. Other camping excursions included Deer Creek Campground and Tunnel Campground.
