Late yesterday afternoon I returned from 6 days away from home.  I attended a summer training intensive for the Yoga 4 Classrooms program in Dover, New Hampshire.  It was a great experience, where I was able to connect with a great group of educators from all across the country and learn a lot of great information that I will be bringing back to my colleagues at my school, and of course, my students.

The days of the training were intense, but I was able to explore my surroundings in the evening time.  I had some adventures with some new friends and some solo time exploring Portland, Maine and Dover and Portsmouth in New Hampshire.  

It was a great experience, but I am SO happy to be home.

We're back!

Our family just returned from a 10 day vacation on the East Coast.

We had a wonderful time, lots of adventuring, experiencing some down time and best of all spending ten full days together as a family.

::a mama & daddy getaway

IMG_9242

 Early this week, the daddy and I ventured on an escape to Denver.  James had a training for work in Denver, and I, quite last minute, decided to use up my two personal days of the school year to tag along.  

IMG_9252We were just gone three days, but in that time we were able to have some nice dinners together and to take in some mountain scenery.IMG_9254During the day time, this mama bummed around - taking the bus downtown to do some shopping at the Tattered Cover Bookstore and the huge REI store downtown Denver.PicMonkey Collage

On our trip we had some great food.  We drove into the mountains the first evening eating at a the Bistro and downtown in the LoDo neighborhood the second night.IMG_9260

It was a fun getaway welcome change of pace, but as always, it is great to be home.
