june so far.

just a little update on what we've been up to this past month :)kansasskyjuneroman had his last day of kindergarten! ( water day ) i died with sadness at how big he is getting. :(
// we headed out to ohio that very same day after some car troubles that turned out to just be a drained battery. kansas sunsets are amazing! we took turns driving and drove straight through, 20 hours, without stopping for anything besides gas + food.ohioroadtripjunei didn't take many instagram photos in the midwest, but this is one of my favorite pictures: my littlest sister + my namaw and papaw in front of their house! i'm so glad that we got to spend 2 different days visiting with them; i love and miss them so much.
// after a couple weeks in ohio / indiana, we headed back. this photo is of asher sleeping somewhere on the road trip home. sleeping babies are by far the best kind of road tripping babies...kansasroadtripjuneon the way to ohio we drove through some pretty scary storms. on the way back, however, the storms in kansas were way too big of a deal to drive through. we saw the craziest lightening ever and threatening storm warnings were all over the radio. we stopped at a few hotels which were all booked and were told that all of the hotels were filled up until we found ONE room left in this crappy motel!
i was so thankful that we could get off the road but it was kind of a bummer having to shell out money for one bed in a smoky scented room only to stay up super late watching for tornadoes.
( ok, i was the only one staying awake, but seriously how could i sleep? )
// i love the colors of this truck wash in salina, ks. this is at my favorite  little stop on the drive - we have good memories here from our many road trips. :)targetroadtripjunegas station break! // stocking up at target for essentials when we got home.rockymountainsparkjuneour first visit to the big playground near our house this season. i love taking my kids to the park and getting this view! living here is awesome.  fortcollinsblogjunewe have been taking lots of neighborhood walks! also, we found a nice free stroller on the side of the road which has been a nice addition since we didn't bring ours out to colorado when we moved.
quick story: we had this stroller sitting outside of our condo one day and it disappeared. turns out that our neighbor took it thinking we were "getting rid of it" for some reason. still not sure of the logic behind that, but he returned it after thoroughly cleaning it so i guess we win in the end!
 // little boys checking the mail.fakidsreviewjuneplaying on the balcony one evening. both of my boys love dressing up, they are so much fun! they've been... dare i say playing together a little better lately??
// roman's new FabKids outfit came in the mail! always a happy day when that happens. :)
(affiliate link used)coloradomountainsjun i definitely missed these mountains while we were away. these are the foothills behind our house at sunset. i have never actually been homesick for a place until i moved here.
love, love, love colorado. <3 <3

  1. Colorado is beautiful! I've visited one time, and it really stuck with me- I'd love to go again. And I'd have been staying up with you in that motel room, too! I'm super scared of tornado weather (we get a lot of it, and I have family that recently got hit by one).

    1. Colorado is so beautiful - I love living here! And yeah, I am terrified of tornado weather! Being in Kansas did not help one bit!

  2. Henry loves to check the mail and he refuses to let anyone else to it every day. It's so funny though, we occasionally get 'wrong mail' from the previous owners and I tell him we have to put it back so the post-lady can send it back to the right person, so sometimes he will absolutely REFUSE to bring our mail in. He puts it back in the box and says 'that's not our mail, it's going back'. It's so cute. Kids are the best. Love all of your photos!

  4. Crazy about the return storms, bummer you had to stay in a gross hotel though. Same thing happened to us when we moved to CO, we got there early because we drove too fast and then all the hotels were booked and our apartment wasn't ready yet. Found a hole to crawl in for the night. Happens!

    Is Asher sleeping under like 4 different blankets?

    1. Hahaha, no - it's just one quilt! :) And yeah, I never really think about the fact that hotels get booked, I always just expect they will have rooms!
