Mt. Sherman- 14,046 feet

Last weekend Trevor and his friend Michael decided they wanted to hike Mt. Sherman- 14,046 feet. Friday night we went to Chipotle for dinner and then the boys packed their meals and headed out around 10 pm for the 2 hour drive to the trail head. They didn't get to bed until 2 am and woke up at 6 am to start their hike. It took 6 1/2 hours and they made it to the top to find 60 mph winds that about blew them over. While they were doing that Emi and I went to see a chick flick and ran lots of errands, a successful day in my book. They came home BURNT from the sun and the wind. Trevor is still in horrible pain because his lips are blistering and his face is as burned as I have ever seen it. He has quite the raccoon eyes going on right now. He claims he put sunscreen on but it wasn't a match for 14,000 feet. Beside the burn, he said it was an amazing climb and he loved the old mine shafts they got to explore on the way up. The trail was still snow covered so they were in snow shoes the whole time. Trevor lives for his weekends in the mountains! Another 14er checked off the list for Trevor. I love my mountain man!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was lots of fun this year. Trevor and I are pretty lucky in the mom department. We have two great moms that live close and are way too good to us. We just love them so much and are so thankful we have them in our lives.

Trevor spoiled me and celebrated my first mother's day perfectly. He got me a new point and shoot camera (so I can take lots of pictures of little Brooklyn) with all the accessories and some very pretty flowers I have loved having on my table this week. I just love that boy.

We spent the morning at Trevor's parents house and made breakfast for Kenna and then the afternoon at my house. My brother and Trevor made dinner for everyone (cornish game hens, garlic mashed potatoes, rolls, and prosciutto wrapped green beans). It was so delicious. They wouldn't let any of us lift a finger- it was great. Trevor spent the afternoon playing baseball in the backyard with Liza- too cute. Every time she sees him she says "T!!" in her high pitched voice. We then stopped over at Grandma Nolen's house to have some dessert and see the rest of the family. It is always fun to go over there! Although we drive all over the greater Denver area on most holidays, I wouldn't trade having family close for anything.
