Okay, I didn't look very closely at the weather before we left, but there's evidently a massive winter storm covering the entire northeast of the US right now. This has been abundantly clear throughout our drive (while our visibility has been quite the opposite). The driving has been treacherous to say the least, but it … Continue reading Day 276: Baby’s First Snow!
Miles is a good enough traveler; he just gets a little testy after being in the car for a couple hours (but then, find someone who doesn't).

Jaclyn came to Denver to work, leaving me and Miles to fend for ourselves most of the day. Unencumbered by the whims and desires of mommy, I decided this would be a great opportunity to introduce Miles to roughly 500 of my favorite things. If this sounds like a pretty substantial undertaking for one day, … Continue reading Day 165: Things to Do in Denver When You’re With Dad
