I’m thankful for Mike and Ally
Red Rock Canyon
Colorado Springs
Nov 23, 2008

On this Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Mike, my parents, family, friends, pets, good health, economic comfort, Colorado’s beautiful scenery, work that I love, and dreams for the future. I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving.

I took this photo while walking with my cousins in Red Rock Canyon last weekend. During their time here, we took several mini-hikes in the canyon with the dogs. The weather ranged from 30s with flurries to 70s with sunshine!


James Wyatt got tired on the hills, so we took turns carrying him up.


I like this one of the two of us.


On another day, Mike took this photo of us with our doggies.


Here’s Daisy, the St. Bernard!


It made me so happy to see James Wyatt enjoying the hikes!
Mike and I spend a lot of time hiking, so maybe our future kids will like it, too.

JW kept saying “bouncy bouncy!” when I carried him. So of course I’d oblige by bouncing him around.


With the watchful hand of his dad, JW did some rock climbing.


Me and my man


I like this one of me with Ally!

I love Shuga’s on Cascade, a few blocks south of the Pikes Peak Center. It’s great for lunch or coffee, and at night they often have live music or events.

Everest has good Nepalese food, and I like Fujiyama for sushi. The Metropolitan (on Kiowa) is a great place for dinner.

If you’re willing to branch out to Manitou, my favorite restaurant in the area is Mona Lisa, a fondue place in downtown Manitou. If you don’t want the entire four-course fondue shabang, I recommend the wine cellar for cheese and chocolate only. Have fun!

Other than the 13 hour workdays it’s been great! I can’t believe the low tomorrow is supposed to be 14 degrees, that is crazy…

Any recommendations for a great place to eat near downtown? We’ve already eaten at Mackenzie’s Chop House twice (yummm) and Old Chicago and Phantom Canyon. I’m always up for trying new things 🙂

Oh cool! I hope you’re having a good time! You’re getting a little of everything this week: 65 yesterday, 25 today. 😉

Haha… I am still here, and it’s still pretty. Til the 9th!

I hope you had a wonderful trip to COS! It was so pretty with all the snow over the last week!

Beautiful pics!

I am in COS for work travel again and am just absolutely amazed by how beautiful it is with the snow today. I’ll be so sad when it melts!!! You’re so lucky to live here!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Amazing pictures. 🙂

aw yay for being thankful and happy! love the pics with wyatt on your necks – so adorable!
