rocky mountain high

So, it's been a week since our Colorado trip came to an end... still no picture post, thanks to a missing (temporarily, I hope) memory stick and the kids and I getting out of the house for summer fun. But here's one of my favorites.

Minnie and Papaw treated us to a week in the Summit County area and we had an absolute blast.

It was the first time our kids saw the mountains.

It was the first time Kyle went jeeping.

It was the first time I went jeeping since becoming a mom. And let's just say that at one point, if there had been a Scotty, I wish he would have beamed me the freak up. Something inside of me has changed and I was a bit um, anxious with my babies up on those high shelf roads. I didn't like it so much.

Thankfully, there is so much more to do in the mountains. We shopped, took a pontoon boat out on Lake Dillon, fished (the big boys attempted fly fishing), played in the stream, rode the alpine slides and the kids watched Toy Story 3 with Minnie.

And from the way Kyle has fallen in the love with the mountains, it looks like we will see many more Colorado summers in our future.

Thanks Mom and Dad for an amazing trip! Love you.

Pictures to follow... someday. :)

My Happy Jack and his thumb. Makes me want another baby. No it doesn't. Yes it does. No it doesn't. Yes it does. Ahhhhh... somebody slap me!

painting our piggies

Ellie went to the nail salon with me for the first time today. It was so cute to watch her across the room, asking the lady a million questions. She thought she was pretty big stuff. We'll just forget the part where her toes get messed up before we even get out the door. :)

daddy's girl

Ellie had a date with Daddy tonight. She was just a wee bit excited. :)

They dined on donuts and then hit Target for some shopping. She came home with a sack full of pink.

To see them together makes my heart happy.

The boys are hanging out in Blackwell this week (Hayes with Minnie & Papaw, Embry with Nana & Grandpa). By the end of the summer, we should all have spent some one-on-one time with each kiddo.

We're really enjoying the time with our girl.
