2013 in review

My blog stats for 2013:

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,300 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 38 trips to carry that many people.

Family Fun Day

Today we went to the Childrens Museum of Denver. I can’t believe we haven’t been before.  Small replicas of grocery stores, vets, etc. that the kids can play in. BUT…Saturday was an absolute zoo. We’ll go back during the week for sure. Hudson really took to the vet section. It was hysterical, he sat at the “appointment” desk, gave dogs shots, looked at their x-rays. Amelia kept gathering up all the pets and then passing them out to other kids.  Too cute.

Afterwards we went to one of the oldest restaurants in Denver, Casa Bonita. It is also one of the oddest places. It’s huge, it seats over 1000 people at a time, has multiple floors and features strolling mariachis, flame jugglers,  a 30-foot waterfall with cliff divers. It also has a small puppet theater, a “haunted tunnel”  an arcade, a magic theater and kids rides. It was really interesting!

December days…

The weather has been nice out the past few days. Hudson actually got on his bike today and took it for a spin. A very, very slow spin. But it was a start. We went to the park and Hudson wanted to hold Nene’s hand the whole way. He kept getting concerned when he was “riding” his bike that Nene was going to run away because she was walking ahead of us. She’s got a little protector that’s for sure.

Christmas apron

Many years ago, back in my SF days, I purchased this holiday apron. I thought it was cute and didn’t realize until I got home that it actually came with a little matching apron too. I held on to it all this time, a few years back I almost gave it to a friend with a little girl thinking someone should get use out of it! But I didn’t. I kept it for some reason. And, Nene is that little reason. Today, we baked our first Christmas cookies together in our aprons. A new tradition was started!


Christmas Eve

Despite the kiddos not feeling their best we still had a fun day. Hudson and Nene played “Santa” today which consisted of them pulling each other around by an iPhone charger.

We made cookies for Santa and left him milk and the reindeers got carrots.
