playing at {Washington Park}

Having fun at the park- Austin gave up trying to keep up with his big bros. They had a huge game of tag going on- good thing the wooden playscape is HUGE! :)
Lil A went down the fireman's pole- he saw some big kids do it, so he was in. Oh boy- this "I think I can do anything" thing better be a phase!

After playing- we walked around the park and found this cool tree by the pond. The boys LOVED climbing all over it.

And then an early dinner at...
Gourmet Hot Dogs. I'm not a big fan- but Kyle & Peyton loved them. They had rattlesnake hotdogs.

Garden of the Gods

All together on a Saturday?! Yes! And it was a gorgeous January day! We definitely took advantage of this.
We decided to drive down to Colorado Springs to visit Garden of the Gods- and since we were there...Rudy's B-B-Q!! Yum! So, yummy food then a fun hike. Best. Day.
We haven't been to Garden of the Gods since 2005- it is such a beautiful place. The boys had a blast running around and climbing- a boys' paradise!
I got a lot of fun pictures today!

And the winner is....

Peyton's name was entered into a drawing at school for 2 Denver Nuggets basketball tickets- one entry per "paw print" that they receive for demonstrating Pennock Pride. Out of all the other students in school- one of Peyton's paw prints was drawn! I can't tell you how excited he was to win.
So Monday night, Peyton took his Dad to the game. :) Denver Nuggets vs. New Orleans Hornets.
{Nuggets lost 81-94}

They had a lot of fun at the game together. Peyton loves one-on-one time with his Dad.

The two pictures that Kyle took on his phone Monday night...
 *section 362- but Peyton didn't care! I love his "birdman" hat. ;)

A {new} year!

2012 has started off well. I took the boys to the Downtown Aquarium today- and we met up with two of my friends and their kiddos. We had a lot of fun- the aquarium is one of my favorite places in Denver.
 Group shot of the kiddos!
 A loved the sharks!
 A playing it cool with Ade. :)
 Loves the fish.
Liked the tiger- but not so much getting their picture taken...

So far in 2012, I haven't been at work yet, I've been watching movies with my boys and we've played the Xbox. Not bad. I know it's only the 2nd, but it has started out awesome. :)

A few things that I would like to accomplish this year:
-Work on an awesome family photo book throughout the year from Shutterfly- for "our year in pictures". 
-Take my vitamins every day!
-Start running again! Seriously, I was having fun. This is a goal of mine. A real stress-reliever, too. 
-Make time for myself! This week, I am finding a sitter that I can use on the weekends! No excuses!

Happy {2012} everyone!
