Did Anyone Else Notice?

..that the spin doctors added just enough back light to give Obama an angelic glow? It wouldn't have surprised me if they had harps strumming in the background.

The Great White Bunny Slayer

Camping at Medicine Bow Natl. Forest by Vedauwoo

Top 5 Things to Remember When Camping:

5. Check the air mattress before leaving. It's no fun sleeping on the rocky ground after all the air leaks out at midnight.

4. No matter how far in the wilderness you go, there are always people who want to drink and make a racket somewhere.

3. Make sure the tarp and tent stakes are in the camping gear before leaving.

2. It gets really cold at night in Wyoming, even in August.

1. Spending time with my kids uninterrupted by television/phone/internet is worth all the woes of camping.

Paul has insisted that she be an indoor dog. I make her run off energy in the back yard and she has a kennel when we leave the house. The kitty doesn't like the new member of the family and has taken to staying around the house more often.

Sternberg Museum

When we visited Poppy and Grammy in Kansas we stopped by Sternberg for a visit. I had to catch Ethan's expression when he first saw the giant, robotic t-rex.

Doing the Happy Dance

Despite having graduated Paramedic school in June, Paul only officially became a paramedic yesterday when his certifications arrived in the mail. The state of Colorado finally got around to sending him his license, so he can finally start acting as a paramedic at work. His new pay rate will go into effect immediately too--yippee.

Another New Baby

Paul and Laurin just showed up after going to "look" at a Chesapeake Retriever puppy in Windsor. Now there's a 12 week old puppy named Suzie running around downstairs. More info. later.
