Fourth of July

While we were there, we spent plenty of time enjoying the weather, had lunch in Wyoming, fed the chipmunks in Estes Park, and stopped by Casa Bonita on the way home.

We decided not to trick-or-treat this year since Laura and I do not eat candy and Kaden is too young for it. I worked most of the weekend so we didn’t hand any out either.

Labor Day weekend

Laura, Kaden and I went fishing again over Labor Day weekend and caught a ton of fish. We spent a few days in Arlington and the rest in Wichita doing yard work.
