I’d say perhaps two of the most memorable days in my life were the first time I saw Star Wars, at age 7, and when I saw Star Wars, The Force Awakens with my dad, wife, and son John. Three Generations went to see this great movie on xmas day, 2015. I thought it was great – they brought back the old magic, and introduced some interesting new characters. Johnnie got teary-eyed when Han was offed. Sorry, spoiler, but I assume everyone’s seen it by now!
A few pics from Halloween. Johnnie and Owen went as Mario and Luigi, and once Owen was done, Johnnie turned into a werewolf. Johnnie’s school also did a ‘Trunk or Treat’ event that was a lot of fun. Auntie Bubbie came for the festivities, as well as Pops and Illa!
Did my first 1:1 camping with Johnnie this September (2014) and we had a great time. I wanted to go as high as possible in Rocky Mountain National Park, but it was kind of a chilly weekend so we opted for Moraine Campground which is pretty low. It was a great evening, and Johnnie had a blast lighting his first campfire, and gorging on Smores. The moon was almost full and we saw lots of Elk, and wildlife!
We met my cousin and his wife Iris in Moab this past March (2012) to meet their two new additions (twin boys), and to meet my folks who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary! This was taken at La Sal Viewpoint, with the ‘3 gossips’ in the background

..So, it went something like this…(Written by Carrie).. 9/4–We left Denver around 9 am, headed for the San Luis Valley and the west side of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Our goal: to climb two 14K ft mountains, Challenger and Kit Carson. Challenger Point was named in recent years to honor the 1986 shuttle disaster and is considered by some an “official” 14er and not by others as it is connected to Kit Carson by a saddle and the two are relatively close together. [see photo #1: Challenger approach in right foreground (actual summit not visible), Kit Carson in center,…
Our first camping trip with Johnnie – Rocky Mountain National Park – Aug 14-15 with the Dugdales and Byrnes – here’s Dave D’s Photos:
We tried to find a good e-card for you but all of the ones available out there are really cheesy, so Bubbie, Joelle and I thought a nice impromptu video from your number one fan would be the most appropriate birthday card! Here it is – we love you, and Happy Birthday!!!
Johnnie went to his first day of Pre-school today. Time is going by just too darn fast. He was really excited about it and he’ll do great!
