It seems that a good amount of people in Albuquerque escape to Durango, CO a lot during the summer months. We had heard great things about this place for the past couple years so this year we decided to venture up there with the kids and see what it was all about. Joe had traveled quite a bit this last year so we used his hotel points to stay free for a couple of nights. Joe has been so busy at work he was only able to take a day and half off, but we were just happy to get to spend any amount of time with him.
We're glad we got to discover a little bit of this fun little mountain town. We look forward to going back when our kids are older and we could do more on the river.

The first time I used this the kids were incredibly impressed and ate their fair share of the pineapple. Before this instance, they never wanted to try one. So now I am buying a pineapple a week and we are all loving it!
So if you love pineapple, hate cutting pineapple or have a penchant for buying new kitchen gadgets, go look for this one. I bought mine at Target for 9.99 and bought one for my mother in law for her birthday off of Amazon, so they are pretty easy to find. You could even go more high class and get the stainless steal one (I hear the edges are cut cleaner, as if I care about that!).

Blake got out of school a couple weeks ago and we're trying to fill our days with fun things to keep summer fun. I love this little tradition I started last year and being able to see how much a year changes a kid. I get to start Kalli's favorites list this next year as she starts pre-school.
Last year's favorites:

By the way, there were two other pregnant women running that day. One did a 10k and killed it! And another did a half marathon. I was completely impressed!

Lexie celebrated her 2nd birthday last week. I tried to fit as much stuff that Lexie loves into the day. Luckily it was a short day for Blake so she got to spend a ton of time with the family. These pictures are out of order, but oh well.
We started the day out with her opening presents. She had quite a bit and by the end she kept asking us to open them for her. She got quite a few baby dolls and she was in heaven!
After nap time we went to the park for a while and then off to chick fil a to have dinner and play. We got lucky that Darren and Amy and their brood were able to join us. It was really fun! We then came home and had cake (it turned out ugly but boy was it good!). Although Lexie didn't even touch the cake, she's not a baked goods fan.
It was so fun to do all things Lexie. We sure love this little girl and are so happy she is part of our family.
Unfortunately Lexie caught a virus on Saturday and didn't stop throwing up until Tuesday. Luckily we think she is finally on the tail end of it, but it was quite nerve-wracking and scary (with an almost trip to the er for dehydration).
