Park.We spent a few days there before heading up toWisconsin to stay at my sister-in-law’s lake house. It was a fun little getaway filled with family, friends, and a whole lot of fun.
I keep telling myself while I’m outside (in the hot sun) working on our landscaping.The saga continues! The wife and I woke up one morning in early July to discover 15 cubic yards of mulch piled up in our front yard (don’t worry, I ordered it, it didn’t randomly appear—although with the landscaping troubles we’ve been having, I wouldn’t be surprised)—we spent the remainder of the month spreading it around and filling it with plants. Which is exactly what we were doing on the Fourth of July—but don’t worry, we didn’t miss out on any of the Independence day fun! Our house is conveniently situated directly between the Broadmoor and the Country Club of Colorado, and both of those places are known for their excellent fireworks display. We watched the Broadmoor show from the deck in our backyard, and by the time that was finished, the Country Club show was just started—so we moved to the front porch and settled in for another round of fireworks. It was just the three of us—Marilyn and I and our dog, Juno—we’re fortunate that Juno isn’t fazed by fireworks in any way, shape, or form. In fact, I think she enjoyed the show just as much as we did! After that we were off to Chicago for our niece’s wedding—which was really just a good excuse for us to visit. Fortunately, my sister has a condo in downtown Chicago and she kindly offered to let us stay. It has an amazing view of Lake Michigan and it’s within walking distance of all kinds of cool downtown attractions—like the museum campus and Millenium
So much fun, in fact, that we decided to get planning our next big family trip right away. Marilyn and I realized that the older our boys get, the less opportunities we’ll have to spend time with them as a family—pretty soon they’ll have wives and kids and we’ll regret not taking the time to enjoy them on their own. So we decided to spend our Christmas down in Mexico; diving, biking, laying on the beach, and (to their dismay) no girlfriends allowed! I, for one, am really looking forward to the trip—I think it’s important to always have something to look forward to! In the meantime, I’ve been looking forward to watching theWorld Cup games with my sons and their friends. If the fanfare of theWorld Cup this year is any indication, soccer is definitely growing in popularity in the U.S. I somehow ended up at a World Cup party with a bunch of kids who were at least 30 years my junior, but while I was the oldest person in the room, we all had a really great time getting into the game.Those kids understood it and enjoyed it even more than I did (which I didn’t think was even possible!) However, I was able to watch the championship with my brother while we were staying inWisconsin (a little tradition we’ve developed over the past several years) and we were both happy to see some non-European teams playing for a change.
Now that summer (and with it, soccer season) is coming to a close—the yard is coming together, the boys are getting ready to go back to school, and Marilyn and I are starting to wonder how exactly we’ll fill our time! I’m sure we’ll find something—in the meantime, I hope your summer has been keeping you busy, I’d love to hear all about it the next time we meet! form.
