Our favorite first year Cheyenne experiences

It is a new year in Wyoming! We have lived in Cheyenne a year now, and we have had bunches of fun, and made great memories... And lots of first time experiences for my kids. 

They had their first snow days last spring with two surprise blizzards....and consequently first firewood delivery this fall!

First rodeo at Cheyenne Frontier Days ...we can't wait for next year!

And got up early on a Saturday to wait for their first cattle drive....

They were in invited to their first wedding...we went for a carriage ride after.

And first demolition derby!

It has been so much fun watching them experience a taste of the kind of life I grew up with!

We also had a blast working hard all summer and attending some other fun summer events like the 

Ironman was there!

Dad and his work peeps even raced a bed!

In the fall, they went door to door trick or treating for the very first time ever! It was one of the highlights of the year...right up there with snow days! it is funny the little things we take for granite.

Finally, we ended the year with a ride on their first parade float in the Cheyenne Christmas Parade!

One of my new year's resolutions is to update my blog a little more often. I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store! We have been trying very hard to shop, eat and play in Cheyenne, in keeping with the theme of Considering frugal to shop frugal and small. So, one of my goals for my blog this year is to do a Sunday Shopping post...probably biweekly, about a great place that we have spent our time or money right here in Cheyenne. Check back once in a while, and see what great local business we have been to! I will also be adding links to resources for Cheyenne, Wyoming....everything from business listings to hotel deals! 

Happy New Year!

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I did not consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I am normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. I did succeed in changing our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming where we are about to take an even bigger step and move out on a dirt road in the country where we can expand our hobby bees and more!
