A Year of Firsts: Fort Collins Urban Assault!

First the bike camping and now our very first Urban Assault - we are on a roll with firsts! We participated in this city wide bicycle scavenger hunt last weekend and boy was it fun!


One tip if you do attend: there is a prize at the end for "style." There were lots of good contenders this year.









The ride started and ended in the New Belgium Brewing parking lot and, as is to be expected, involved copious amounts of BEER!





Some "activities" at the ride stops:

Diving for cans of New Belgium beer:


Slip and Slide!


The best ride end ever: a wet bounce house on a hot day!

Convinced yet that this is a good time? Sign up next year and ride with us!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
