2008

Several blogs have posted highlights for the year and I've promised a few people I'd do the same. While I think it would be entirely more interesting to list those people (you know who you are) and events (house selling) that have frustrated me over this past year, I'll remain PC and post the good stuff.

So, here are some highlights....in no particular order.

Blake's big move to the home office. So proud of him.

Puerto Rico! Such a beautiful place to visit. Far exceeded our expectations.

Lainey's Catholic baptism.....at our old church in Keller, TX....so that Aunt Caroline, her Godmother, could attend. The boys were baptised in the same church. Still trying to think of excuses to put a bonnet on her since this day.

Widespread Panic at Red Rocks, the holy grail of live concerts. No place like it.

Maci Kaye's arrival in July.

Jack's first time on skies.

A more extensive venture into the blogging world, bringing close friends and wonderful connections to women all over the U.S.

Several trips into the mountains.....Glenwood Springs Cavern pictured here. Camped in a tent for the first time in Estes Park. Rented a cabin at the YMCA of the Rockies. Another trip to Aspen in the spring. And, more day trips to ski than I can remember.

Considered a total beating to most.....Thomas the Tank Engine Day at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden. It was such a treat watching Jack enjoying it all.

Lainey turned 1.

Spring Break trip to Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills of South Dakota, Custer, Wyoming, Deadwood and more.

Now, go post your highlights!
