We had a full day yesterday! We had my son’s 10th birthday party and as soon as it was over, I surprised him my telling him, his younger brother and best friend were all heading to Elitch Gardens for the night!

I have been wanting to go to Elitch Gardens since we moved to Colorado 6 years ago so I am glad my family finally got to check it out. My boys were actually a little nervous to ride some of the rides since they have never ridden a roller coaster before but after a little pep talk, they rode some including the Ferris Wheel and the half pipe!
So this is only open for one more weekend so make plans next weekend to check it out!

I can’t believe I am just now posting this! We had so much fun at the Copper Mountain First annual fall festival called “Witchcraft” and I totally forgot to post about it. We went on the last day they were having it so that’s why it must have slipped my mind.
First off for this to be the first time putting on this festival, I thought it was a success! We went in mid September and the leaves were incredible. If you want a good day trip to look at the leaves in Colorado, Copper Mountain is a spectacular place to go.
They had apple launching, pumpkin painting, a haunted house, a bounce house and also their summer activities including the ninja course, go karts and bungee jumping was in full swing as well.
It literally was the perfect fall day. It wasn’t to cold, and the leaves were at their peak. I cannot wait to go back next year! If your from out-of-town and want to see the leaves, Copper has great views of tons of leaves and it’s so close to Vail and Breckenridge, you can see the leaves from all 3 cities within a day. I love my little mountain town of Copper. Take me back there!

Not to long ago, we got a letter from our kids school giving new guidelines for snacks and treats. When we have a class party, like their Halloween party coming up, more than half of the items need to be “healthy”. I was thrilled with that letter because it not only helps our kids but helps the teachers as well!
So I have been on the lookout for some less sugary options for my kids and I have a few drinks I want to talk to you about!

Last week I was on snack duty for my kids flag football games. Here in colorado our league asks that we try and provide less sugary snacks and drinks for the kids so I was basically a rock star with these drinks.

The last time we had a lot of people over, our oven decided to not heat up and it took 2 hours instead of 20 minutes to heat up our meal. I was mortified to make people wait so long. Don’t get stuck in a bind with a malfunctioning appliance!
Did I mention the this fridge includes a Keurig Kcup French Door? I never even knew that was a thing until now!
