Denver: Part the First

We went to Denver over the 4th of July weekend to visit Alex’s sister and her family!  We had an awesome time!  So awesome that we have like 100 pictures!! It was too hard to narrow down the pictures into one post so I’m going to do a few of them!! They had a lot of fun activities for us to do and seeing as we are small town people now we were excited to see all Denver had to offer!! Here are some pictures from our first few days there!

Here are all the kids playing with the fun marble toy Grandma Kath sent to the boys!  I think the big kid in the back had the most fun!

And here is another picture with everyone smiling!

The next day we went to a splash ground at one of the outdoor malls near Beth and Nathan’s house.  Emmy was a little nervous at first but she got the hang of it when she saw her cousins running through it!

All the kids decided it would be much more fun if the daddies came in too!  So Alex and Nathan ran through clothes and all!  They were pretty well soaked!  A little boy tripped close to Alex and dropped his toy.  Alex bent over to pick it up for him and didn’t realize his face was right over one of the holes and the water shot him in the face!  I didn’t see it but Nathan said it was pretty funny!

Here is Kaylee laughing at daddy getting wet!  She had a lot of fun watching all the kids running around the mall!

After the splash ground we went to eat at Paradise Bakery (SO YUMMY!) in a different part of the mall.  These cute umbrellas were right outside the restaurant so we let the kids run around under them too since they were still in their swimsuits!

We couldn’t convince Emmy to go in at first so then we started throwing her headband in and she would go get it for us!  She thought it was hilarious!  Then she started playing it with Logan and Josh.  Then Alex started throwing his shoes in!  Then he and Nathan played horseshoes using their shoes and the bottom of the umbrella statues.

Logan, Josh and Emmy were very dilligent about retrieving the “horseshoes” for their dads!  Here they are “discussing” who will take the headband to Alex!  🙂  What cuties!

It seems like I usually have a picture of us playing Wii whenever Beth and Nathan visit! So…here we are playing Wii!! Logan really liked playing boom blox and he is pretty good too!  It was nice to relax in their awesome basement when it was really hot outside!

Here is Kaylee getting into mischief while we were playing Wii!  She had lots of fun playing with all her cousins toys!

And finally a new little skill that she picked up while in Denver!  You can’t tell in this picture but she is about 3 or 4 stairs up already!

And finally here is a picture of her “look what I can do” face!  I get to see this face a lot becuase she is always getting into something!  She is going to be walking in no time!  She is growing up so fast…(motherly sigh)…what happened to my little baby!

Okay!  Stay tuned for the next installments of our trip to Denver which include: 4th of July, a Rockies game, and more crazy fun with cousins!!

  1. I liked reading this, even though it was there! I had forgotten why Alex had gotten so soaked. What a nice guy to pick up that toy, only to be repaid by water in the face. (I don’t feel too bad for him, though; it was SO HOT, I was a little jealous.)

  2. I guess James and Kaylee can both do stairs now. The problem with James is he just goes down them, head over heels, or on his stomache. Ask me how fun it is to watch that?!! Holy heartattack!
