Highlights from our Vacation to Denver...

The car ride itself took two days, one way. There was a lot of time for silliness, games to play and of course time for naps. Baby girl loves to wear her sunglasses upside down.

We stopped in Iowa City for dinner one night with one of my good friends, Amy. We used to teach together in KC, MO. Later that night, the babies enjoyed gymnastics in our hotel room. hee-hee. Trey announced, "I like our trip."

When we got to town, we stayed with my aunt Rose first. She had a big dinner of spaghetti, salad, corn, green beans and bread awaiting us. And we spent the night visiting with family. The next day we took the kids and two of their little cousins, Ian and Layla, to the zoo. We spent the whole day there and still didn't see it all. To me the day couldn't have been more perfect.
That evening, we all went out to dinner for my grandma's birthday. She thought this was her "birthday dinner," but we actually had a surprise party planned for that weekend.
Father and son. I love this picture. Could they be any cuter?
This is Anna Grace with her great aunt Linda. Did they have a time together. Here she is putting whip cream on her face and then patting it off with a napkin. Too cute!
Anna Grace and her great grandma Teresa.
This is going to be longer than I thought...So, this concludes part one, or our first two days in Denver. I'll post more later today....Hope you're enjoying your day...Blessings!
