Mountain Shadow Restaurant

Nana and Papa's traveling shenanigans took them to Mountain Shadows Restaurant in Old Colorado City today. A current owner was our server! The food was very good, and they have quite a menu. We were totally engaged with the signs on their walls. We've been looking for a year-round decorating answer to our kitchen area above the cabinets - how about inspirational and/or funny signs?! 

Cinnamon Roll. About 3" thick, too!

Snowy Saturday Part II

Later on Saturday...

I think she said 10 inches.

Moving water doesn't freeze.

Topic selection board for Friday dinners...

Graduation Weekend

Many of Fina's Besties graduated this week. Ethan is receiving his diploma on the monitor in the first pic. A few other things to note these last few days - see below... Plus, Fina and AJ went to callbacks last night for DCC High School's production of Oliver. We'll see...

Lynn and Jamie tried 3 Margaritas for the first time.
We'll be back. We've been passing by and saying we
must try for years. It's along 105 in Monument.

And a return to a fave: Sushi Ato.

It started snowing last night...

Our first official Friday Family Dinner, or Shabbat
as Jamie likes to call it. Tonight's topic: Gratitude.
Grilled Cheese Please, potato salad, fruit salad,
and everyone's favorite - Fat Boy ice cream sandwiches.
And a Rodney Strong "Brothers".

This morning, pushing a foot of snow.

Total Lunar Eclipse

We had a little front yard Lunar Eclipse party tonight. The moon show was only slightly better than watching the kids play around rolled up in blankets and riding kid toys. The nice moon photo was taken with a cellphone looking into a little tabletop 30x telescope; whodathought. Tracy added the Stargazer Playlist to the party environment.

Just getting started.

Tracy's photos.

Birthday Celebration Continues with local Guests and from California

Griffen's party continued with some basketball and birthday cake. And with Matt and Janice in from California, the wine tasting, burger smashing, and enchilada making were in full force.

But wait... TWO awards for Matteo!

A vertical tasting!

Some senior graduation stuff going to, too.
