Jay spent Thursday morning with Emily at take your kid to work day and he loved it. Then we all met up for lunch and Jay and I took the afternoon to go hiking at Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado. Jay was a great little hiker and it ended up being a special day where Jay got to spend some alone time with mom and dad.








Sunday Funday

The Mielkes had quite the fun Sunday today. We spent the better part of this morning sawing through drywall to try and fit a shower basin into our gutted bathroom to finally finish it, only to find out we need to move the drain to line up with the basin’s drain hole. We then went to the grocery store where Jay ran away from Emily and nearly gave her a heart attack (at least I found him in the vegetable aisle and not the candy aisle…a little bit of silver lining). To finish things off, Hanna threw a fit at dinner and threw her entire plate of taco pie on our walls, and finished up by hitting mom with her empty plate. Needless to say, Emily’s had a rough go of it today. So we’re celebrating with a few beergaritas and an episode of Mad Men tonight.

Despite the rough day on the kid end, it was adorable to see Jay pick out his book about snakes at the library typical 3 year old boy 🙂 and Hanna was adorable carrying her Madeline doll around the library. But Momjust spilled her beergarita, so this bartender is back on duty. Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!





Winter Weather

We had some more winter weather come through Colorado this past week, but the temperatures are back up and we should still have soccer for Jay tomorrow. I haven’t gotten many new pictures of the kids on my phone recently, but hopefully I’ll get some cute ones outside tomorrow.
Not much is new with the kids. We’re looking forward to summer so they can get out front with the neighbors and play in the grass. Love you all!


Outdoors…for a little bit

The Mielke family all had a fun time getting outdoors this weekend, which was good because we’re now buried under about 6 inches of fresh snow. We spent Saturday morning at Jay’s first soccer practice of the season. He was much more outgoing than last year, but he was still hesitant to join the other kids for the first half of practice.
We also got out to the park, where Hanna climbed the first tree of her life (with a little help from mom).
Now we’re all hoping for some more warm weather to melt the snow and get on with spring!
