Soccer Champions Fall 2014

Team Hutton had another successful Fall 2014 soccer season. We are so proud that our two competitive boys continue to develop skills, demonstrate good sportsmanship, try their hardest all while enjoying themselves.

Let the celebration begin

Ryder's U10 Development League Playoff. Ryder and his team were extremely focused for their first official soccer tournament. After two years of playing together and playing up an age group they only lost one match each year.

Ryder scored two goals in the semi-final match as his team was victories 4-0 and had two assist in the final match as his team won again 4-0.

Team Hutton is so proud to have two champion soccer players in the house. Mommy and Daddy are a little concerned as they both could not sit still and were extremely nervous all morning...not looking forward to that feeling over the coming years.

Ryder's 8th Birthday

Happy Birthday to Ryder!

We are so proud of this 8 year old.
Ryder had a great day and was so happy that he was able to take his trip back to IN.

Nothing better than a great big thank you hug for your little brother
Unless you compare it to a sweet little thank you hug for your little sister

Wrapping the birthday up with a little hockey...of course Tagg is in goal.

Ryder's 8th Birthday Trip with Daddy

For his 8th birthday, Ryder and Daddy flew back to Indiana to visit the Cardinal's, Grandma Hutton and to experience Purdue University on a Fall football game day.
Nothing like continuing family traditions, reestablishing & building on lifelong relationship, creating new memories and enjoying some quality Daddy & Son time.

Ryder & Bryson were born days apart while we were neighbors in Memphis, TN. They have remained great friends and look forward to their time together. They have established a rich friendship that will last. 
Game day...the indomitable spirit of being a Boilermaker

Time to relax in the men's basketball locker room
"wow, did you see the size of their shoes?"
awestruck
Given the opportunity, I believe Ryder would have verbally committed to Purdue. Let the brainwashing and recruiting commence.
Time to recreate all the highlights of the game
Spending time with Grandma Hutton
We don't know who enjoyed the trip more, Daddy or Ryder? Either way, they both had a blast and will have these memories and traditions for ever.

Piper's First Day of Pre-Kindergarten

Piper is officially in pre-kindergarten at the Jefferson Street Preschool in Louisville, CO. 
Bittersweet day as we were/are so excited for Piper to begin school. Yet, we are a little shocked that all three are out of the house (at least for part of the day for a few days per week). 
Piper couldn't wait to get her photo taken with her special sign.
Saying goodbye one last time.
Morning routines changed drastically today...

2014 USA Pro Cycling Challenge

Team Hutton had a great week following the 2014 USA Pro Cycling Challenge and cheering on Team BMC. For the second straight year, Daddy was able to ride in the Team BMC car during a stage and the family was able to meet the team and hang out during another stage. We enjoyed watching Tejay van Garderen and Team BMC win.
