14er on the 4th

Z's mother came out to visit us for
the 4th of July.

Among packing in tons of other
fun stuff during her time in Boulder, 
we had a very full 4th.

We started off watching Z 
run a 5k.

Then we drove up to 
Mount Evans,
one of Colorado's 50+ peaks
over 14,000 ft.

We had a great time seeing an elk herd, 
climbing the short trail to the summit, 
(where it started snowing), 
 and taking tons of photos, 
before heading back to a holiday picnic!

California Adventures

I recently got the chance to go to California
for a conference, so I took advantage of the locale
to see some pretty places and some good friends.

Some of my favorite people...

And I took myself right over to Disneyland!

The conference was great, too!
In addition to meeting other fabulous librarians, 
learning a ton, and picking up new ideas for work, 
I got to meet Sherman Alexie...

And Dan Rather, among others!

I'll leave you with this image:
The convention center fire alarms went off one morning,
and 20,000 librarians evacuated the building
in what had to be the most orderly process ever.

My only regret is that I didn't make it to 
In-N-Out Burger this visit.

Happy Birthday, dear friend!

One of my favorite people on this earth, 
my friend since the 4th grade, 
turns 28 today.

She said that she wanted either a jet pack 
or a time machine for her birthday.
Unfortunately I can't provide her with a jet pack, 
but I can at least try to
take her back in time...

I hope you have the best birthday ever, and that
you've enjoyed this little trip through time.

I love you!

Boulder Summer

Wow, I have really let this blog slide lately.
To those of you still checking in here, 
thank you, and I apologize.

With everything going on this summer, 
the blog hasn't been a priority, 
but I've still been taking lots of photos, 
so I can catch you up on things!
