We made this simple recipe for Jeff’s birthday when my Dad & Annie were in town and served it over quinoa with a tomato/mozzarella salad on the side. It came together quickly and was very flavorful.

In early March we journeyed to Colorado (for me it was the first time!) to see family and friends and go skiing. It was such a fun trip and we kept quite busy!
We could barely open our eyes to take a picture it was so bright. And yes these smart North easterners forgot to apply sunblock so both got burned 🙁
Back at home I made friends with their dog Maddy who they rescued – she is so so sweet!!
She was a bit scared of the camera 🙂
On Saturday morning Trip brought back Duffeyrolls which were DELICIOUS!!!!
This photo doesn’t really do justice to the sunburns – especially Jeff’s which is finally starting to go down. I was lucky since I had a neck warmer on – my only exposed area was right below my goggles.
Jeff, on the other hand, rocked a serious strap burn 🙁
A few more of Maddy 🙂
Then it was on to my cousin Hope’s house to visit with her family and my aunt Laura. Her daughter Lyla was trying her first rice cereal – she wasn’t convinced 🙂
Electra and I went outside to play on the slide and she thought I was a bit more fun than her sister 🙂
The smocked dress is a hand me down from our other cousin who is now in her mid 40s….good quality clothes hold up a long time!
Giving Dad a high five on the way down 🙂
The ladies of the family got together for a picture 🙂
Lyla was much happier later in Dad’s arms
Pure excitement 🙂
Electra thought Jeff playing soccer with her was pretty funny 🙂
Saturday afternoon we headed to Jeff’s Aunt and Uncle’s house in Golden where we met up with Jeff’s parents and his Brother Ben.
We then struck out on a hike (me moving pretty slowly at first) through the canyons and up a mini mountain
Jeff likes to lead the pack 🙂
The family minus Jeff’s Mom Sharon who is taking the picture
On the way back we got a call that Alan & Hilary’s house was under evacuation warning as a result of the Indian Gulch forest fire – yikes! Thankfully they never had to evacuate but it was a sobering reminder of the power of Mother nature!
All in all my first trip to Colorado was a blast and I hope to go back soon – fun to see so many family and friends in one place!
My Dad and Annie are here today so we are headed down to New Haven for the day to go see an old friend and visit a museum.
Hope everyone’s having a good week!
Happy Birthday to my honey who turns 29 today 🙂
First day of school 🙂
Don’t cry now. You can cry next year when you turn 30 😉
I love the photo they chose to open the album – it is a burst of summer in March!
The Fairfield University campus had some great spots for photos!
Their wedding had fabulous beachy details and amazing flowers courtesy of Elisabeth at Blush
A thunderstorm was predicted but while we waited for it to arrive guests enjoyed the beautiful flower gardens and views outside
Congratulations Jeremy & Megan – I can’t wait to see pictures of your new arrival!
We are headed up to the lake for the weekend but I wanted to leave you with some cute miscellaneous dog photos from last month 🙂
Snowshoeing at the lake back in February 🙂
The conditions were perfect and it was so peaceful tromping through the woods!
Apparently if I don’t call fives this happens…..and even if I do 🙂
Let me up Mom – I’m very fun to snuggle with.
Please can we come up?
See – all better now 🙂
I did kick them off eventually so put my robe over them so they wouldn’t be chilly 🙂
When I went to leave and my Mom was helping me with their bed they climbed right on top of it – I don’t think they wanted to go home 🙂
But home is so sweet……more couch time 🙂
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
