These corrugated steel garden boxes are a nice addition to our back yard.  We have a pretty big garden area, so these are fairly large (4 ft W x 10 ft L x 3 ft H), but they could be scaled to about whatever size you want. The only limitation is the manufactured dimensions of the corrugated […]
Here are a few fun shots from our snowshoeing trip last weekend at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.  We also enjoyed some sledding at Hidden Valley.  
Check out these sweet pictures I got of my Christmas lights right after it snowed!  (Click for a larger view.)
Best wishes from our family this Christmas season! 2010 was a year of many changes for us. Early on, we found out that Adena was pregnant with our third baby (a boy.)  Born on October 7, Jace Stewart was about a week past his due date.  Official stats: 8 lbs. 9 oz., 21 ¼ inches, 6:39pm. […]
During the first week of August, my family and I were visiting my wife’s family in rural Antler, North Dakota.  It’s become an August tradition for us to go back for a couple weeks in August to help with the harvest.  My father-in-law raises wheat, canola, peas, and sunflowers.  The first three of those crops […]
Thursday and Friday this week we went out and used our day of skiing at Copper Mountain. It turned out to be a good time to go, as there was several inches of new snow earlier in the week as well as on the days we skied. Temperatures were much lower than during our trip […]
This week most of Colorado was blanketed with several inches of spring snow. Here in Castle Rock we got about twelve inches, which is the most snow we’ve gotten from one storm since Thanksgiving. Copper Mountain received two feet, which is great because we are skiing there next week. We’ve had an unusually dry winter […]
A couple weeks ago we went on our traditional spring skiing trip. Grandma usually comes out for a few days sometime around my birthday, and we take that opportunity to go ski since we can just leave the kids with her. Normally we just go to one location and ski just for one day. This […]
Recently I’ve been thinking (dreading?) about what we should do about getting a second car for the family.  With two kids, it won’t be too long until we’ve completely outgrown the little Saturn.  It’s already placing some limitations on trips we can take.  For example, with two car seats in the back, we basically can […]
Today, on the longest day of the year, we’ve added one to our family. Kaden Michael Dorman was born this morning at 7:07 am in Parker, Colorado.  At 19 1/2 inches and 7 lbs 6 oz, he was almost exactly as tall as his big sister, and just a half pound heavier.  He looks more […]
