Summer Vaca 3/6: 24 hours in Colorado

This was the shortest segment of our whole trip, and I felt bad because Maisey was really looking forward to playing with her cousins! Between family pics, lunch, naps, a family dinner, and swimming, Maisey and Shayla only got to play together for like 45 minutes. :( And she cried the next morning when we were leaving. It was sad. . . but maybe next summer they can play more together!

We left for CO at 5:30 AM and were got there a little before 10. We let the kids play for a few minutes at Christina's until it was time to check in to our hotel. Right after that we headed to the park for some family pics!

Our fam!

The whole fam!

(We're a big group!)

Cute Cousins!

Grammy and her grandkids!

Christina's fam!
(I can't believe she has 3 kids!)
Kate and Blair

Kels and Brian

The boys!
My boys!

The girls!

After pics we headed back to Christina's for some pizza!

I'm sure Maisey is bossing Derick around or something in this pic!

After lunch, Daddy took the kids to the hotel for naps and I stayed at Christina's to help get stuff ready for our dinner that night!

Maisey couldn't get enough of Baby Luke!

Maisey tried out Shayla's roller skates! She thought they were pretty neat!

After dinner we went to the Community Rec center to swim. They had a huge kiddie pool with a whale slide in the middle. Maisey faced her fear of slides and decided to go on it! She LOVED it!

At the pool they also had these big foam mats. Maisey and Gage both loved riding on them and Maisey pretended she was Jasmine and the mat was her majic carpet and she kept insisting that daddy (aka Aladin) pull her around the pool! What a funny girl!

After the pool we headed back to Christina's for a fireworks show! (yes, I know it's July 3rd!) They have really bad mosquitos by their house so the kids all watched from the front window while the boys and Kelsey were all outside! They loved the fireworks and there were lots of "ooooooo's and awwwww's"

Kate gladly held Baby Luke during all of the commotion!

These girlies are sure a lot of fun!

Baby Luke was blessed on Sunday, July 4th. That was the whole reason we drove all that way! His daddy gave him a beautiful blessing and he looked adorable in his little white suit!

Our time in Colorado was short but sweet!
