That guy in the background? Not exactly the type you'd expect to get excited about feeding ducks. But after seeing my post from our first Clement Park adventure, and hearing how much Maile loved it, he insisted we take her again before he had to head back to work. He stocked our pack with bread, tortillas, and snacks. We left the house early, in our hats and sweats, wanting to take in the entirety of the gorgeous day.


70 degrees and hardly a cloud in the sky. More often than not, this is what Mile High winters look like, friends! (Though yes, the pond is frozen, hehe.)


This moment is forever imprinted in my memory, and I'm actually thrilled I captured it on camera. It's hard sometimes, isn't it? To photograph, or not to photograph ...

At least, on this day.

    1. Now that you mention it, I do, too! It's such a relaxing activity.

      It'd be fun to get together next time you're here.

  4. I'm jealous of your beautiful weather. I'm so ready for 70 degree temperatures (even if there is a frozen pond in the background.)

    1. Well, just a few days later, we got slammed with snow -- so don't be too jealous, I guess! Hehe. But we do love the weather here. :)

  6. Sweetest little smile. What a special day. I like that you pointed that out- to photograph or not to photograph. Sometimes I love just having the memory in my head and other times, it's so fun to have photos to look back on!

    1. Thank you, Michaela!

      Yes, especially as a mama, I struggle A LOT with whether or not I should be snapping away. There are so many things I don't want to forget ... But you know that John Mayer song, "3x5"? I know, I know ... I'm super cheesy -- haha -- but it does remind me that sometimes the memory is better than anything else. :)
