Here's what I've been up to while I haven't been blogging:
Sam's parents, Michelle and Shawn, visited from their home in Texarkana, and we had a blast with them. Joe really lucked out with these fabulous in-laws, and so did we!
We went to a Rockies game
Had a sleepover with Brooklynn and Bentley. We use the term "sleep" loosely for Bentley.
Michelle coloring with B & B.
Had way too much fun with the selfie-stick.
And an old favorite microbrewery.
Went for a hike.
Shopped at this amazing imported cheese store, which contributed to the many calories consumed throughout the week, including an amazing barbecue with Cajun meats complements of Michelle and Shawn.
And. . .
Made pickles with cucumbers from the garden.
Hosted book club at my house and we discussed The Sparrow Sisters by Ellen Herrick.
Bought some new chairs and a porch swing for the patio.
Took a morning bike ride with Dan and ended up at Starbucks:)
Wow, I crammed a lot into the past two weeks, just like I just crammed a lot into this post. Good-bye, July! Welcome August!
