Anniversary in Aspen

Greg, Sidamo, and I went to Aspen this weekend to celebrate our (minus Sid) fourth anniversary. It was our first time away with Sidamo, and he did great. We did learn that vacations are a lot different with a toddler in tow—instead of sleeping in, lingering over meals at quiet restaurants, and enjoying the after-dinner scene, we spent much of our time discovering the town's many playgrounds and searching out eateries with high-chairs and easy exits in case of meltdowns. But aside from that adjustment—and the stomach bug that kept me company for the duration of the trip—the mini-vacation was a success. Here's some proof.


Sidamo's first time in a pool. He did pretty well considering it was around 60 degrees outside and the pool wasn't nearly as heated as we would have liked. A few hours after this photo was taken, the pool was drained and remained empty for the rest of our stay. Should we take a hint?

The whole fam dam.

The maroon bells pictures are gorgeous. What a handsome boy your Sidamo is. It must be a new learning experience to keep up with a toddler while fighting a bug! One among many...You guys look happy!

Holy cow! I wondered if I would ever see a person who could actually pull off that style of hat, and your Sidamo did it! He is a handsome little guy, and someone is quite photographer too :)
