Just a quick update

We are all really good. We have been doing some hiking & exploring. We have decided we love hiking. Holden loves it too but he freaks me out. He is so fearless that he does not think he will get hurt. It is kind of a chore to take him because he scares me but he will never learn if we don't teach him. He has the best time picking up sticks & rocks on our hikes. He really likes climbing on all the rocks (he has always been a climber).

We try to go to a new place every weekend (but sometimes it's more fun to have a lazy day). There are so many places that we want to visit. We found a short walk around that has some ice caves. I'm hoping we will make there this weekend. We are also planing a hike up to Hanging Lake & Hays Creek Falls. We have been to Hays Creek Falls but we didn't hike up the trail.

We are also trying to find a new place to rent. This tiny apartment is not fun. I hate living so close to so many other people. I come home from work & I can smell what people are cooking (which is not always good). It is so noisy here.

I am also working hard trying to get mt photography business going. I have put cards up all over town. I plan on doing pictures for family & a few friends when we come to visit. I'm also trying to build a website (which I have no Idea what I'm doing).

Well that is all I have time to tell you right now. Sorry if I rambled a bit (I do it all the time). I hope to have more pictures soon.

Holdens Graduation

My boy graduated from Pre-k on Wednesday May 27th. I can't believe how fast he is growing. It really is bitter-sweet.

This picture cracks me up. It looks like he is crossing his fingers that his name will get called.

He decided to keep them crossed hoping he won't trip.

It started out as a nice day but it was getting ready to storm so it got cold really fast. He was coming to tell me he was cold. I love the look on his teachers face.
Dad taking Holden back to the line.
He was being a punk & this is the best face he would give me.

I'm really mad at myself because I missed the teacher giving him his "diploma". Something distracted me at that very moment.

Mothers Day

So I know this is late but you know I have had problems with my internet. Anyway. Holden & I were all alone for mothers day this year. We had a really nice day. Holden kept telling me we were on a date. We went out for breakfast then spent some time walking in downtown Basalt. I really had a good day hanging out with my little man. He even let me take a ton of pictures of him (which never happens).
This is my favorite picture from the day. He is such a cutie.
I don't know if you can read this or not but tells all about the Pole of Peace.
The Pole of Peace. This is in downtown Basalt.
This is my crazy son taking everything out of his wallet just so he can put it all back in. Oh FYI the little white & blue card is for a child psychologist. If you really know Holden you know why that is funny. Just Holden giving me a silly face. We really had a good time that day.
