We went to Colorado!

The girls and I had a great trip to Colorado last week. We went up a week early to help my parents prepare for Tiffany and Branson's open house. The plane ride up there was a little crazy because I had the two girls by my self and I forgot the carrier for Abby. Luckily I sat next to an angel on the plane who is about to become a Grandma and she held Abby for the entire flight! This really came in handy during the 2 times that I filled barf bags because the flight was sooo bumpy. Deb was Heaven sent! She even carried Abby to Baggage claim and helped me until I found my dad. We did a lot of decorating and the kids had a ton of fun playing together all week. Friday night when Tiff and Branson got there we all went up to a cave in the mountains to go spelunking. Grandma and Grandpa stayed at home with ALL SEVEN of our little ones! We were all a little nervous about how they would hold up. We had so much fun in the cave. I went on all of the drops except for the "bridge" as Nate has named it. I avoided that one because when Heston first came to Colorado in 2001 we went there and I fell 20 ft. on the "bridge" so I decided to pass this time. It was so much fun to be with my family. There isn't anything more fun then just hanging around the house with all of those adorable little kids and watching the cute (and sometimes not so cute) little things that they do together.

you are so good about taking pictures when you go somewhere. I wish I could remember to pull out my camera every once in a while. The spelunking looked so claustrophobic to me! I don't think I could do it.

Okay, falling 20 FEET!!! Holy crap, Melissa! I'd skip the "bridge" too! And throwing up on the flight while being alone with two kids sounds very overwhelming. Your grandma-to-be was truly heaven sent for you! :0)

I adore the picture of the cousins with Tiffany around her wedding dress...so priceless and the pic of Dani at the airport with her little bag is so adorable. I LOVE the girls matching outfits and how fun that Ann came and saw you. Does she live in Colorado? Wow it sure looks like you had fun and it was busy, but how neat that the family was all together.

How fun!! I love the pictures of the kids and your parents! I don't know how they handled all seven at once! Must be all the years of practice! :-) I love little Abby's smile too! She is getting so big already!! I am glad you had a good time!
