New Lawn Mower!

So we  had a big Garage Sale this weekend and from the profits, I decided to buy a new Lawn Mower, after heavy research and reviews I decided to buy a Honda..

And I love it, set up was about 10 minutes, first cord pull started.

I bought this one for 399,- at my local home depot. So far the only negative aspect might be for taller people that you can’t adjust the push bar handles, the height is not adjustable, however you can adjust the variable speed handle in the middle and get it to a higher position.

Spring Update…

Just a quick spring 2010 update as it has been long ago since I posted something on the bog. First some updates about the family.

Saige is growing and growing, she turns 3 in July and talking like crazy, a real girly girl. Started school in January at Primrose, same as Gavin for 3 days but I think she will start soon 4 days as well, when Grandma and Grandpa move up to Wyoming for the summer.

Gavin starts to be a big boy, his clothes and shoes are renewed every 4 months or so, a big Dutch boy probably. He starts full time Kindergarten in September at the Blackrock elementary in our neighborhood, which is right across the daycare they both go to right now. He will turn 5 in June. Also he is getting more interested in playing soccer lately, now the weather starts to get better we are practicing a lot in the backyard.

Christy is going great, she looks awesome as she has been training and training with her fitness courses and running outside. She is enjoying her work from home about 32 hours a week, and lately is travelling a bit more to clients. As a matter a fact we are leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow as I have to extend my Dutch passport and I can’t do this in Denver because lack of biometric scan equipment.

Myself, I am going steady, working out twice a week in a bootcamp, see posts below and also running quite a bit, which will increase now the weather is getting better. Still have a goal to run a half marathon this year or triathlon after the summer.

Work at Staples is going great as well, we are staying as it seems for a longer period in the broomfield building in Colorado. We just merged 280 people from another location into our building so everyone is under one roof. Lots of projects and work to do the coming years.

We are really looking forward to the Summer time. We hopefully had the last snow last week, but you never know in April, gras is starting to get green now. Pool will open on May 29th and the kids can’t wait for that.

We have no big plans around the house for the summer, keep landscaping low maintenance as we want to save for a big overhaul in one or two years when the kids are bit older. So enjoying the sun and grilling from our deck after a day in the pool is probably going to be a lot of weekends of entertainment.

In August or  September we plan to visit Jon in Seattle Washington for a family vacation trip which would be the first time all four of us in an airplane.

Will keep everyone posted more coming Summer or visit our photo blog at http://www.slabbekoorn.us
