Thanks For Being A Good Human!


Man... tonight we got to hang out with our friend Jesse... a dude we haven't seen for like 14 years or something crazy like that!

And ya know what....?

Nothing has changed!

We fell right back in line like we hadn't missed a day!

We took him to show him some of the coolness of Colorado (until lightning started freaking us out a bit)... and then we went and broke bread and just hung out.

As we were leaving, I felt compelled to say to him:

"Thanks, Jesse, for being a good human..."

Isn't that sad? That we have to thank the good humans when we come into contact with them... but we do... cu they're RARE!

But he is definitely one of them and we're grateful for who he is!

And we're committed to not letting 14 years go by again!

Come back soon, Jesse!

Sunday Family Tradition


Thanks to Laura's super frugality super hero powers - we now have a new Sunday Meal Tradition we've been enjoying the past few weeks!

Modern Market is "kids eat free" on Sunday - and we take FULL ON advantage of it!

We almost can't buy the groceries for what we eat a GREAT meal for there on Sundays!


Admittedly - I wasn't keen on this place at first...


I had only been once - and the circumstances and the company were less than stellar...


The kids convinced me to try it again - with MUCH BETTER company and conversation!

And they were right - it is AWESOME!

Delicious, affordable meals made from clean, fresh and whole foods with next to no preservatives...

YES PLEASE!


So there ya have it - for those who think I only post online about race relations and the desperate situation of our society...

Here's a bunch of pictures of our food to prove ya wrong!

Find yourself in our 'hood on a Sunday evening...

you BETTER come join us and break some bread!

Key Lime Busted!


Meron whipped us up a delicious key lime pie recently - a favorite in this household!

And here she was - caught giving it a whirl after the pie was cooling and setting!

You deserved it, girl!

Thanks - Meron - for the deliciousness!

They're All Gonna Laugh At You...


I am not sure how we landed there - but after dinner tonight we found ourselves spending 90+ minutes looking up Adam Sandler YouTube clips and showing them to the kids!

And it was the best thing EVER!

The kids loved it - especially when we shared that we played an Adam Sandler song at our wedding!

And don't freak out - we censored things where we needed to... but it was time the goofball crew got to know some good old fashioned Sandler!


I am a GIGANTIC Adam Sandler fan... have been forever.

When we moved - I got rid of almost all of my CDs - but I kept some that were near and dear to my heart... including these!


And this guy here...

Man we may be in trouble... cuz he GOT IT!

He was cracking up so hard at him - and my daddy heart couldn't have been any more proud!

"Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it..."

Shake It Up For Half Price


What do you do when it's half price milkshake night after 8:00 PM at Sonic?

You head to Sonic, that's what!


Meron quickly took control and placed orders for everybody!


And looked mighty cute doing it too!


Soon enough - Mebbie was sipping on a milkshake...


And Z-Dogg was siphoning down a slushy!


Good times with the goofball crew!

Rocky Mountain Vibes


Some friends from Georgia happened to be enjoying an extended little stay in Colorado Springs... and tonight we finally connected to hang out for a bit!

What an awesome group of kids!


And it was a beautiful night to catch a Rocky Mountain Vibes game - the new minor league baseball team in town!


We became quick fans!


And it was smiles...


all around!


These two here became FAST FRIENDS!


And Meron was absolutely smitten with this little dude!


Thanks guys for a fun night with cool people!

Play ball!

My Little Baller


I love how much this girl has fallen in love with the sport of basketball!

She regularly comes to the Y with us to just hit open gym while we work out.

Can't wait for the next season to kick off!

Keep hustlin' Mebbie!
