Yesterday we had a work day, today was more of a team building day. We had the opportunity to climb the rock wall at CRMS. Great fun! We also got 90 minutes for lunch...time to be a "grown-up"!! I've always wanted to go to the local Pho restaurant. Finally made it!

Is it Really July?
We have had steady rain all day...not a typical July day. I would have loved the day much more had it NOT been Wednesday!! No golf league this week. Checked the rain gauge before it got dark and we were just under 2 inches.

Final Day
Well, summer break has come to an end. :( Today was the final "weekday" trip to the's back to the real world tomorrow.

Spent a couple of hours at Prestige Audi for a service and managed to come across my new summer car!!

Enjoyed another day home in Burlington. A GREAT run this morning watching the sun come up.

The sister photo was taken yesterday...oh well!! Loved the photo!

I tagged along with the Kenyons as we made our way out to Burlington for the Lacey Reunion. Had a great time seeing a number of family members and of course playing golf with my dad, Dave, Alex, and Daryl.

After golf we made our way out to the KCC Fair...yummy cheeseburgers and cotton candy!!

Had to look at the riding it for this girl. Oh to be young again.

We had a small thunderstorm go through tonight...smell of rain...AMAZING!!

Well, we had to wait out the crappy weather at league tonight. It was well worth it because it ended up being a beautiful night! After getting home from league I decided to make some yummy Sriracha roasted almonds.

On the Hunt
Well, I am looking for "housing" for 270 Google Chromebooks. Made my way to IKEA thinking that I would hit the jackpot...not so much. Also made my way to a few office stores and Super Target...still nothing great. Will have to go back to the drawing board. (I did manage to find some Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreos at the Super Target though...YUMMY!!)

The Ridge
We made our way back to The Ridge via an invitation from some good friends. I was excited to head back and anxious to see the condition of the course. I have to say that it didn't blow me away. Felt pretty good about our choice to move to Bear Dance. One of the best parts of the day was getting to see my old friend Dick who is a starter.

Beautiful Morning
We are usually fortunate with the weather early in the morning, but there are just certain days that are better then others. Today was one of those beautiful, so calm.

Saturday, July 19, 2014


Tonight we headed back down to Bear Dance for their Western BBQ. Great food. Great Jack Daniel's "tasting" bar. Great time with new friends.

Hi-Tech & No-Tech
Today is one of those days that I remember to appreciate both ends of the spectrum. I received my final shipment of Google Chromebooks...270 now waiting for set up. At the end of the day I managed to capture a beautiful sunset...thanks to Mother Nature. Anything tech and anything natural...two of my favorite things!!!

Golf Tournament
Today we ventured north to Pelican Lakes Golf & Country Club near Windsor. There were no deer, just a TON of pelicans, geese and herons. Crazy thing...this course has the most shoreline out of any golf course in America. The Poudre River runs through a large portion of the course. It was very evident to see the residual damage from last September's floods. They also had a lot of damage just this Memorial Day.

As for the tournament, we kicked ass...birdies on the entire front nine and ended up with a 57. We thought we for sure had it!! Until a 54 came in. :(

Rain & DMV
The day started with rain and ended with rain...SHOCKER!! We had a storm go through just before 6AM, even included a little thunder and lightning. The day was overcast with crazy clouds and a TON OF HUMIDITY!!. While finishing up the last few holes at Bear Dance there was a storm moving in. We fortunately missed that one. Then of course there was golf league!! We made it to the tee box of #7 before the crap rolled in. But we FINISHED!!

Prior to hitting the links I had to stop by the DMV to renew my license. It was actually very painless and the gals that work there were very nice. I was in and out in probably 20 minutes!

Virtual DENSI2014
This morning I was able to join in on the Livestream from the DENSI2014 in Nashville. Missing my DEN Family!!

FedEx was supposed to deliver my first batch of Google Chromebooks yesterday, but they had some type of "miscommunication". The machines did arrive today! The next 150 should be here Friday!

Birthday Dinner
We visited our favorite steak house tonight for my birthday...there was just a little dessert leftover. (Chad also thought the "siamese raspberry" was funny.)

Sunday, July 13, 2014


Well, today started out great...we were on the golf course! And ended just as family dinner! It was great to have my parents up as well! We couldn't travel to the Caribbean for my BDay, so I picked that as our theme for tonight. It was a WONDERFUL day!!

Saturday, July 12, 2014


Well, tonight was a perfect example of what the Colorado Monsoon Season looks like in Colorado. We ended up with three bands of heavy rain moving through. Between the small amount of rain Friday night and tonight, we ended up with 2.60 inches.

Oh Hail!!
We've been lucky ALL summer and we've missed the hail portion of all the storms...not tonight. I was able to move around the flower pots, but the veggies on the back fence didn't fair so well. The zucchini was looking the best out of everything. Hopefully it will bounce back quickly!

DCSD Geek Camp
Today I taught two sessions at our district's Geek Camp. While there I got to see the 3D Printer in action...VERY cool!

Wednesday Night League
As usual, the storms came rolling in on Wednesday night! We had to take a short break, but managed  to get back out and finish our round on the back nine.

Tuesday, July 8, 2014


You would not have guessed it was the first week of July by the weather. There was wind, fog, mist and temps 20 degrees cooler then yesterday. A little unexpected!

A Little Fun...A Little Work
Well, I realized that after 18 holes of golf at Red Hawk, I didn't get any photos! We played in the league's member-guest tournament. Unfortunately, they didn't pay out for 2nd low gross.

This evening I got to work on my two tech presentations for Thursday. Looking forward to seeing some of my tech friends and working with the teachers!

Great "Vintage"
I played with a couple of other friends today since Chad had his match play event. 

This was my cart number. I had to take a photo...after all, it was a great year and it's my birthday month!

Choo Choo 
We run into trains every now and then on our way to the course. They are usually full of coal and fairly slow. Today's was pulling a variety of military vehicles. We got stopped at the gates giving me the chance to get a few pics.

4th of July
After a morning of golf, we had a great evening of family time full of fun games and great food! Dave made some great pork on his Green Egg. And of course we had to have homemade ice cream! I did some experimenting with my new camera and the fireworks, so I hope to get a few pics posted.

On a side note, we finally saw the bear!! We were on the green with no phone, so I didn't get a pick. :(

Beautiful Weather
It was another beautiful morning at Bear Dance. I just wish my golf game would have been half as good!

Backyard Visitor
We've had several of the bucks come through the yard in the fall and winter, but not too many in the summer. This one stopped over just before 5 today. He started checking out the bird feeder, but decided sunflower seeds were not his thing. He then moved on to pear tree and quickly made his way over to the dogwoods. He munched on them for a good 5-7 minutes. I was a little torn...get the photos or save the bushes...picked the photos!
