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.

Colorado Springs Weekend Get Away

The last family Summer get away as we enjoy family time and celebrate the end of Summer and beginning of school. We headed to Colorado Springs, CO for the weekend. The Broadmoor Resort, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Garden of the Gods Park all exceeded our expectations.

Team Hutton enjoyed watching Air Force Academy cadets practice parachuting into Falcon Stadium, chasing each other around The Broadmoor grounds and playing on the playground, eating at/getting stung at The Golden Bee English Pub, eating desert in the hotel room bed, feeding the giraffes at The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, swimming in the infinity pool, riding the water slides, sitting in the hot tub, driving a wooden electric boat on Cheyenne Lake, eating at/playing games at PLAY, watching TV while taking a bath, watching movies in the hotel room and exploring/hiking at Garden of the Gods Park...its good to be a kid.
