its still summer here

so this entry officially catches me up...

After we got back from Mexico, the visitors kept coming. First Kevin came through town and we got to catch up with him. He came midweek, but we were still able to take him to a Rockies game, and hang out for a few nights. It was a great visit, and we're looking forward to seeing him again soon.

Right after he left, Megan and Aaron, their kids, and Hollee came to visit. Together with Kristie's parents, Mark, Amy, and Kevin. That means we got to see all the family, minus a Melinda, Paul, Joshie, and some of the kids, this summer.

the girls got fish to play with. "Play with" involved feeding them bubbles, and begging me to pick up the fish and move them back and forth between the bowls. After being left outside overnight.... fish funeral.

Me and the kids. They were so much fun to have around and get to know better.

After everyone went home the summer calmed down a bit... lots of workin for both of us. We were able to see my parents a few times, and we're feeling really lucky to have them here for the year.

In August we decided to go to the BWG camping trip in Aspen. we drove up and back with my co-worker, Steve, which was pretty fun. It was a cool drive; we went over Independence Pass for the first time, and it was really pretty. The party was definitely rockin' at the campsite with lots of late night shenanigans and only got crazier after we went to bed. That's all I'll say about that, since I don't want to get fired. I work with fun people. crazy, but fun.

Kristie got us tickets to see Demetri Martin, this guy:

The show was almost all new stuff, and it was SOOOOOO funny. His prepared act was really good, but unlike a lot of other comics, he seemed like a genuinely funny guy, talking back and forth with the audience, and at one point coming up with jokes on the spot.

Before the show we went to dinner at TAG on Larimer Square, and lucked into eating at the Chef's table. It was a really fun experience, watching the chef and his staff work behind the scenes, talking with him, and trying different samples of the stuff they were sending to other tables. Kristie tried sushi for the first time in one of sample plates, and we would definitely recommend it to everyone, especially the chef's table.

The last month has been pretty low-key. I've been teaching at CU, which has been really rewarding so far. I have a good group of students and they are working really hard, so I have high hopes for the rest of the semester.

I love that guy! I didn't watch the video you posted..but have you seen his show where he does the "glass half empty vs half full?" Funny stuff.

The pictures are cute.
of course they are...I have cute kids.
Glad we got a chance to see you this summer. I'm itching to just hop in the van with them and drive out again for a few days while it's still warm.

You should have drank the fish in front of the kids.

Hey, don't look at me like that! They died anyway!
