Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

It has been a few years since we'd been to the Colorado Springs zoo, so we decided to hit it on this beautiful Monday. The kids loved feeding the giraffes and exploring the animals in a new setting. It really is the most beautiful setting mountainside.

Happy Halloween

The kids got into the Halloween spirit big time this year. On Halloween morning they dressed as Olaf and Elsa and got to see their little monkey cousin. That evening we trick or treated around our neighborhood in our family themed costume of 101 Dalmations. The kids enjoyed handing out candy to the other trick or treaters most of all.

10 years of Graham

We escaped to Santa Barbara for our 10 year anniversary. The Bacara Resort could not have been a more perfect destination! We spent a day wine tasting at Foley, Dierberg, Melville and Babcock vineyards. On our October 28 anniversary, we went for a surprise helicopter ride to Lincourt vineyard followed by a visit to Bridlewood vineyard. Our anniversary was capped off with dinner at San Ysidro Ranch. Such an amazing setting, service and ambiance. I'm voting to make SB an annual trip!

Wizard of Oz-ish

Isla was Dorothy and Finlay was the Lion, as we headed to the local high school for a trick or treat event. The kids had a great time playing all the games and getting lots and lots of compliments on their costumes!

Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

For the second year in a row we ran the Rock 'n' Roll half marathon. The weather could not have been more perfect. We celebrated post race with our neighbors.

Glow at the Gardens

We went to the first night of Glow at the Gardens at the Botanic Gardens. It was a very warm night, and the kids had so much fun dressing up and walking the lumanari path.
