Highlight of our week was definitely the Arvada Fire + Rescue truck + their paramedic vehicle. A six-man crew visited our group, rolling up in an 86-ton, emergency truck on a cold, windy morning. We spent two hours learning about how the fire suits work, what types of jobs the Arvada crew is called to do + their corresponding certifications, how the firefighters get assigned their daily jobs, + what they do every day inside the firehouse. After the indoor portion, we all got a tour of the truck’s compartments. The kids’ favorite was definitely the “weapons” compartment with all the sharp axes, hatchets + car piercers. The team left us with some sirens + honks, leaving quite an impression.

September 30 – Weekly Photos
Last camping trip of the year, sniff. We headed off to Stagecoach State Park in Oak Creek with a set of grandparents in their RV. It was glorious weather, 70s by day, 30s by night. I love when you need the fire to survive. It feels more primal, even tho we had a camper to retire to in desperate times. We explored, and made mud, and fished, and wandered through so many ecosystems.
October 3 – Weekly Tracking + Photos
Long before we had kids, George and I always found somewhere to BE in the mountains this time of year. It’s just rejuvenating to meander outside as the seasons shift. Now we pretend this fall tradition is “for Wilder’s birthday.”

It began with a simple art closet organization project – it’s been on my list awhile, oy – and progressed into an obsession. The day I became a sea turtle, that’s what I looked like at the pool. Did people look at me? Yes. That is what Rosetta wanted, only she thought they’d be jealous, haha.

Short week, due to illness. We celebrated a stuffy-headed Rosetta’s 9th birthday on Wednesday, inviting only the same people who got us sick and limiting the activity portion of the party to trampoline balloons and a hamster ball. Plus an aunt brought colorful wigs!

Highlights this week: Wilder can drop in on half pipes now. He finally took the plunge on our garage ramp, so we had to get out and practice!

Highlights this week: Grandparents visit, so lots of cousin time! We dialed in outdoor hours before the cold snap. Then we hunkered down with our Lego village, field trip goodies and lots of group gaming.

Highlights this week: We tried to move around more this week, even in the “yucky, mean” weather. Then we poured Legos onto the living room floor for the whole month.
