Great pictures, but I'm dying to know if you solved the ninja mystery!

Sorry that you didn't get quality sleep that night. Hope you made up for it the next day.
Glad you liked the zoo animals (and Dumbo of course).

I remember we were pretty exhausted that first night back from the Springs and slept like logs. And we weren't even awakened by ninja fights once!

We never did, though I don't think we've talked to Barb since that weekend, so she may have. Maybe Tracy can e-mail her and find out if the mystery was ever solved. Inquiring minds all over the world want to know, after all!

I love the colour of the foliage in your pictures. And I just realised that Stupey Doodle has the initials of SD. Scooby Doo.

Much. more. appropriate.

ps. I think my plans for Durango for September this year are really starting to firm up. So, I'm really excited to see your scenic shots.

pps. Ignoring the random nasal douching picture.

Glad you like the pictures. And feel free to come up with as many new nicknames for our little Stewy Monster as you wish. As you'll see, ours are never ending...

Your trip out to CO in September sounds so exciting! Hopefully your foliage is as great as ours was last year.

As for the nasal-doucher, I think it's best if we all ignore her. Judging by her look of joy in the picture, I'm pretty sure she's a lunatic.

We just love our little Stewpot. She used to be even more photogenic, smiling for the camera whenever we wanted to take pictures of her. Recently, however, she must have decided she doesn't like the flash, so she always looks away at the last minute. Luckily, I've still been able to wrangle a few good pictures out of her.

All the fall color was so great this year to totally surpass anything I ever remember Colorado having before. I guess it was a good autumn for us to crash there.

I really like the couple Disney things we've gotten from Etsy. You'll see in later updates some of the other awesome finds.

I wish I could post a good video of the whole elk experience, bugling included, because it's so funny to watch. It's also crazy being within about ten feet of it all and having them pay you absolutely no mind.

And yes, lots of haunting, and it isn't even close to over yet...

Colorado is beautiful! I have never been there, but your gorgeous photo's are inspiring me!

I just finished reading "At Home" by Bill Bryson, as it is our book club book this month. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, but found I had to concentrate quite a bit, as he tended to go off on tangents!

Looking forward to reading more about your adventures.

Hope your job hunting in Anaheim is going well.

It really is beautiful! I highly recommend taking a trip there sometime, and I'm sure you'd love it!

Definitely agree about "At Home." It was a totally worthwhile read and I found parts of it fascinating, but he loves to wander off topic a lot. I think this one took me about three months of putting it down for a while and coming back to it on and off before I finally finished.

Hope you keep enjoying hearing about all of our shenanigans!

Catching up on your amazing pictures.

Firstly, I love that special spot for you and Tracy at Estes Park. That's so nice to have a spot to come back to for all your momentous moments in your relationship. Kudos to you both.

Your pictures of the Aspens are making me really excited about my trip in September. We'll be in the Durango area in the last week of September and I'm really hoping to see wonderful colours like what you've gotten. I know it can be hit and miss depending on the weather....but I'm hoping.

Love the pumpkin Duffy!! Great job!

Can I just say, I am loving your life updates!

I read your trip reports, and now am hooked, hooked, on your life updates

I am rooting for you two kids (I say that cause I am way older then you, not because you are kids, you are adults lol )

I hope you continue to post about your adventures, and also, you two seem to be very much each other's best friend, and it really shows.

This made me laugh pretty hard! Sounds like she has such a personality!!

Awh you guys are such a cute couple! I love how much these spots mean to you both and how much history is there!

You’ll note from Tracy and my track record that we rarely play things safe in life. We’re no strangers to throwing ourselves behind some new idea and sticking it out until things eventually go our way or fall apart.
I think that is the best way to live, otherwise you spend you life wondering...

That picture of the canopy of trees is amazing! It just looks so lovely there!
