This blog chronicles the adventures of our family as we travel, hike, camp, visit, cook, parent, live, and grow in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains outside Denver, Colorado.
Amy is the blog's primary author. She grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, and comes to Colorado by way of Massachusetts, California, and a brief stint in Texas. An engineer by day, she enjoys being a mom of two, cooking, and being the family archiver for a crazy-awesome life.
Travis is also an engineer who hails from Northeast Ohio. He enjoys travel, the outdoors, home improvement projects, and getting a great deal.
Andrew is two. He enjoys jumping/bouncing/hopping, construction equipment and modes of transportation of all kinds, throwing rocks into water, and cooking. He is incredibly caring and empathetic with his little sister (most of the time), other children, and adults. He loves to laugh and has a great sense of humor.
Clara is one. She enjoys climbing anywhere she can get a foothold - super bonus points if it's somewhere she can get up to but can't get down from. She loves food: watermelon and bananas, snap peas and brussels sprouts, steak and sausage, milk and ice cream are all favorites. She loves to laugh at her big brother's antics and is happier when he's around.
Pine Hill was so named after Pine Lane, the home of Travis's parents in Ohio.
