Your awesome Tagline

Headed home after one night in a hotel, three nights in a tent, four nights of awesome toddler sleep, many miles of dirt ridden, a trip down the river, a trip to the dinosaur museum, many beers drank and s’mores eaten, and no one falling off the 50 foot cliff next to our campsite. We’ve had some challenging camping trips with the little dude but this one was not one  of them. Seriously kick ass week all around!

Today did not suck.
It did not suck at all.*

*ok, the part where the toddler got bit by a fire ant, screamed for half an hour, and subsequently lost his voice? That part kind of sucked. But the rest of it? The rest of it was awesome.

Heading over Vail Pass in the rain with a car full of bikes and camping gear and paddleboards and a toddler. Fruita bound. Maybe Moab too.

Hoping the desert is ready for us!

Saturday Brain Dump

  • I was supposed to do a big race today but I didn’t because my body hates running. And because my lungs are waging war on my body.
  • I have been sick for a solid week and it’s beautiful out and being sick when it’s beautiful out really sort of blows.
  • T-minus three days until the humans in the family head to the desert for a week of camping and mountain biking and hiking and SUPing and beer and all sorts of awesomeness.
  • I turned 35 this week. 35 sounds really goddam old.
  • We have a chicken that is hell bent on escaping our yard. She has flown over the 6-foot fence, climbed a tree to get out, and spent three days hiding under our deck. She may be going to live with a friend who keeps her chickens locked up most of the time. If this happens I will be getting another chicken at the next chicken swap.
  • CHICKEN SWAP.
  • That is all.
