Nick surprised Kara by booking 2 nights without Ivan at Steamboat Springs for anniversary celebration.  We had such a great time doing what we can’t do with Ivan: ejoying a 3 hr dinner with wine, walking along the river and talking, scenic drive, sitting with wine by the river, relaxinging in the hot springs.  We also enjoyed the chair lift up and the alpine slide down the mountain.

We are sad to see summer over, but we have enjoyed it as much as possible.

Highlights include: Boys camping trip to Sand Dunes, garden with Ivan and mom, Playdates with friends all over the city, saying goodbye to cousins, family fun, Father’s Day at Tiny Town, visiting family out of town, bicycle rides, camping with friends, traveling solar eclipse, and being silly and having fun.

May was filled with Nick’s family coming to help his sister and her family move to Phoenix, AZ.  His dad came to help with the moving truck then after Memorial Day his mom flew in to help Abby take the girls down to AZ.  In the middle of all of that Nick took Ivan camping in the Great Sand Dunes National Park over Memorial day weekend and I had a wonderful relaxing quiet weekend by myself and with friends.

Here is a short video about the adventures. https://vimeo.com/223233531

 

 

After a hectic week of floor remodeling we enjoyed a visit from the Reimer family for Christmas.  The guys hit the slopes on Christmas Eve and we had a delightful fondue dinner for Christmas. The visit was short and sweet, but Ivan loved the time he had with extended family.

The week after we spent time with local cousins and Grandma Karen who lives in KS.  He loved the warm days to jump on the trampoline!

 

All the Moseley siblings got to go to the Raiders vs. Broncos game on New Year’s Day.  It was a fun week of celebrating with family!

After 10 years of being in our condo (as of July 2016), it became time to invest in a few upgrades to our home.  In 2012 we had already remodeled the kitchen, which was a major undertaking since we did the work ourselves (with the help of Kara’s parents).

This round of renovations included replacing the worn-out carpet and ugly bathroom vanities, so we elicited a contractor to help.  In addition to those upgrades, the bathrooms and master bedroom received a much needed new color and coat of paint.

 

In all, the project began in early November, but do to complications with our flooring order, it was only completed a mere 2 days before Christmas!  Just in time to share with family visiting for the holidays.

We had the wonderful opportunity of having Jo Julia Photography do a family photo shoot for us.  We were able to snag some time while the leaves were still really pretty!

p1270148We have thoroughly enjoyed our summer in CO!  We have spent so many weekends out camping or hiking that it is hard to keep track of all the places we’ve gone.  Ivan has also enjoyed helping water in the garden.  On cooler days we bake and cook together. We enjoyed a baseball game and concert by Crowder with some of our church friends.

I found a small bicycle that he can walk around until he is big enough to sit on it.  We also enjoyed a visit downtown Denver on the train with a visit to the fountains in front of Union Station. Here’s a video to show the pictures of our adventures.
