I know that I apologized in May that I hadn't been posting, so here I am on nearly the last day in June saying the same thing. I have some pictures to better explain why I don't post - along with the caveat that we are still in a 900 sq ft apartment with 5 people and a dog. The renovations are coming a long, but we are weary. The house is definitely shaping up into what it will be, and inspections begin on Monday. Dry wall will be soon after that (plan is Tues/Wednesday).
Here is a picture of our current kitchen/den and dining room.
Close-up of the dining room. This used to be our porch.
This is the new LARGE window in our bedroom which makes me happy by just existing.
Coo loved his soccer camp.
H-P can't wait to go next year (not so handy in flip flops)
Even though soccer isn't exactly Buck's favorite sport, he loved playing around with Coo after camp.
The oldest son of 2 of our closest friends came with his best friend to a conference at DU (J is in blue)
Our crazy family took them on a short trip around Denver and into the mountains.
We went to Red Rocks to watch about 1000 people work out ;)
The oldest and the youngest of ours and our friends' off-spring (only 15 years difference!)
Can't forget the tornados going on ALL OVER the city this summer (nightmare)
And the First Communion Kids led the Corpus Christi procession at our Parish…that's Buck in the blue and beige with one of his best friends to the left.
Our family is off to New York tomorrow to visit the aforementioned friends at their Lake House (capital letters just seem right here). I can't wait to see them - OR to get out of this little space we call home :)

I hope you're having a great start - middle - of summer. We're gearing up to get out of dodge in a week or so. It will be nice to see some old faces (and some young faces too).

Summer has been a full-time activity around here for the last three weeks (yes, CO schools are out at the end of May!) Mourning the loss of our pool at home -well, the boys mourn it and RKZ and I mourn how tired it made the boys- we have joined a local Athletic center in order to enjoy the pool there. The favorites are the giant inflatables they bring out every afternoon and the 3 foot pool for H-P to cruise in safety.
The big boys enjoying one of the inflatables
RKZ is on a trip for work until Friday, so stay tuned for some "What I do with them on my own" posts!

This summer has already been so incredibly busy. The random posts are just another sign of the crazy. Wait till I have a house and an office. You'll be sick of me...
H-P found the train room next to the bubble space. He was so happy!
There are even more happenings around the house with the renovation. We are prepping for a big trip back East and a few weeks away from our apartment. Happy Days ahead!!

Summer is in FULL SWING for us (I have a lot of pictures to prove it) but I've heard from a few people that they are more interested in what's up with the house. The Reno is in full swing too. I don't have a good supply of "before" pictures - I'll wait until the big reveal for that so that I can get these shots up.
another view from the kitchen back.
Sorry that there isn't more detail. I have to run to Buck's baseball game. Ahh, summer.
