The Bomb

This past couple days we got blasted with something known as a bomb cyclone. Best I can tell it is basically a hurricane over land that brings very low barometric pressure and with it some crazy storms. Colorado recorded a record low pressure and a winter storm like I have never seen. I have lived in Colorado almost my entire life and this storm was something other. Incredible winds, no visibility and a ton of snowfall. It really was ridiculous.

I worked early in the day and had to make my way home from Longmont and it was not easy.

These photos are from after the storm was mostly over. This storm was unlike anything I have ever seen. Closed multiple highways and stranded over 600 cars. Pretty nuts.

We Love the Zoo

We had an exceptionally warm and beautiful weekend so we decided to get out of the house and head to the zoo. It is one of our favorite places and you will likely see a lot of photos from this place this year. The kids love the animals, but it is also just a beautiful place with lots of amazing plants and trees. As a family we just really love the zoo and we feel very blessed to live in a place like Denver that has such a cool zoo so close to home.

My camera ran out of batteries half-way through, but here are a few shots from our visit.

The Dinosaur Park

On of my favorite parts of my week is Saturday morning with my kids. Its a great time for us to just have fun and spend some good time together. One of our favorite things to do is go to the “Dinosaur Park”. Its this park near our house that has a dinosaur theme. Today was absolute beautiful and we spend most of our visit just swinging and laying in the grass. It was a good day.

A Beautiful Sunday Morning

Recently I have become a little bit more adamant about the importance of regular church attendance. I think it is good for your spiritual and mental health. I also believe it has a great effect on the community that is often overlooked.

That being said…some mornings you just need some family today. Today was one of those days. We were all up and ready for church when we realized that we had hardly seen each other all week. We were longing for some time with each other so we decided to play hooky and head for the hills. We found a beautiful spot on the side of the mountain and just took some pictures and enjoyed each others company. It was the perfect “church” for us this morning.
