These two met at age 3, they've been in the same class ever since and remain good buddies.

Yesterday, LT, a friend of mine and her son set out to do Bear Peak. I was honestly questioning the reviews that this was "steep, challenging, long" etc. It was in Boulder after all, how hard could it be? We left Denver at 7 and returned at 4 PM. We took few breaks despite the incredibly hot weather and the challenging terrain. It was long, hot, beautiful, steep, challenging and a huge accomplishment for these two boys and for us!

When we signed a contract to have our yard redone in March, they said they would start June 5. Neither Brian nor I really believed it would start on time. Friday June 2nd, they came and surveyed the yard and said they had to finish a few things on the 5th at another project and would start June 6. And they did! They demo'd the yard quickly. It has been so fascinating to watch how its all done. Brian and I are in awe by their tireless efforts for hours upon hours in the sweltering heat. Its truly incredible. All 3 kids spend lots of time pinned to the windows watching the work.

The boys school has a fundraising auction each year where each family has to donate something to be sold. This year we donated two "buy a shares". Basically you donate a party and then sell each individual party slot to a child (or adult if its an adult one) and then that child (or adult) can go to the party. For A's class, a friend and I donated a 2 hour 1st grade boy's swim party. 6 little guys bought it at the auction and so yesterday we held the party.
They swam a little, played a little on the playground and then ate some pizza. I also donated a 3,4, 5 swim party for LTs class which is next week.

A few weeks ago I ran the Colfax half marathon. The day prior was rainy and snowy and I wasn't sure I was going to muster the energy to run the race alone. But I woke up and it was sunny and warm and I decided to run it. And I got a PR! They send these pictures out with free downloads so I thought I would put them here. The course is so fun, you run through the zoo, down through Park Hill to Aurora, through the first fire station in Aurora, a few miles on Colfax (not a highlight, or even remotely decent part of Colfax), back to Park Hill and ends in City Park.

LT got pretty excited about 14ers this year. So much that he even wrote his magazine article about the 10 most popular. As we talked about them and learned about them, it became apparent that he might want to do one this summer. We have a date, with some friends to do one. In order to make it a bit more successful we decided we should "train". Yesterday, my dad and I took him to Mt. Galbraith (4.9 mile, moderately challenging hike). He did so well, no complaints, pretty quick pace and we even had time on the way home to eat ice cream (a tradition after hikes in the Imig home).

The big boys have American Ninja Warrior in the Stanley Marketplace. We've made a routine of going to class, going out to dinner and then (sometimes) getting ice cream at Sweet Cow. Its not a cheap night, but it sure is fun.
Sweet Cow has these little bouncy cows that they love playing on.
