Proud Mom Moment

I had to have a proud mom/wife moment with you all! Nate and Ashtyn got chosen to do a photo shoot for Boppy pillow. Ashtyn got to pose for 2 sessions, one alone and one with daddy! They did such a great job! Ashtyn was all smiles and they got a lot of great shots! So be looking this fall on the pillows (sold in Target and Babies R Us) or on their website...I'm sure I will post a link when I see the pics!


If you'll notice on most baby products they want the baby to look unisex...so as hard as it was for me, no pink and no bows! :)

My Hard Workin Hubby







Nate just finished building a few big parks that I wanted to show off! This first one is Bear Creek park in Denver...

Yes that is a sombrero slide!


Don't let it fool you...it's really fast!


There is a rock climbing wall behind him that I must have not got a shot of.




This is a sand pit that has fossils built in for the children to find with a brush.




This is a time capsule and underneath it is a box. It's contents include: Nate's hard had, a Colorado Designscapes T Shirt, Nate's business card and a few other misc things...this is not to be opened until 2059!



Aren't my parents cute!


The first kids to try out the swings...they work great!












This next one is the Highlands Ranch Veterans Monument Park. This one is particularly dear to our hearts considering 3 of our grandpa's served this country!




There were about 12 of these made and you can buy a tile with a name engraved for $250.


Nate loves sandblasting.


Nate and his crew did all of the hardscapes that you see here...


Nate got to meet Bill Owens and Bill Ritter at the opening! They even recognized him on stage!








As you can see Nate is a busy guy!!! Hailey went back to school last week and we decided to switch her to afternoons...since Hailey doesn't take naps, it's amazing to have that few hours to get stuff done again!!!! Ashtyn is absolutely everywhere and standing up on everything! She is crazy! She has already had quite a few tumbles...out the front door, off the stair, off a chair...The play pen and gates are my new best friends! She also is such a good eater and LOVES feeding herself whatever I place on her tray! She is also starting to learn a few signs! :)

Welp that's the news around here!

Fun on the 4th!

Finishing Touches II

The modern art I've been working on for way too long is finally hung!

Amy came over on Friday to help me finish. (I honestly don't know what I'd do without her!)

As you can tell...very tedious!

Also, we finished our largest project of the summer...painting the house!

We hired a company to do about 70% of the work and the handyman hubby did the rest. It took us about 2 weeks longer because of all the rain we've had.





Our house before...

...after
