We have been spoiled this spring with many visits from family, and it has been so much fun! Last week, Uncle Paul and Aunt Megan and Isaac and Louise came for a visit. We were SO happy to have them here, and we had a lot of fun together. Much time was spent playing together in the house and backyard. The kids enjoyed having Louise as a "big cousin" to read to them and play with them too!
Isaac was a precious little guy who took good naps, was cheerful and delightful, and if he kept his parents up all night at all, we didn't hear a thing upstairs! We had so much fun getting to play with him and tickle him when he was awake, and he was happy to watch his cousins be crazy around him. He seems to be a very easy baby, or maybe his parents are just more competent than we were :) but he is really fun to have around!
On Thursday afternoon, Paul and Megan and Isaac drove up to Boulder to meet with old friends, while we got a babysitter for the other kids in the evening. Chris, Louise, and I went to the Garth Brooks / Trisha Yearwood concert in Denver. It was AWESOME! They played old hits and the enormous crowd was enthusiastic and LOUD.
On Friday, Elijah went off to his last day of school before Spring Break. Chris, Paul, and Louise drove up to Winter Park and spent the day skiing the whole mountain in beautiful, clear weather!
Evenings were spent playing Wii Party together. Uncle Paul definitely had the most fun at this activity. The children obligingly went to bed on time and left the adults to grown-up time together!
Saturday was just spent relaxing and playing around the house. In the evening, Paul and Chris and Louise took the three "big kids" out for ice cream at Coldstone after dinner.
Sunday morning, Chris and Elijah took everyone to the airport so they could fly back home to Texas. We miss their company so much! That was our last Colorado visit together - next time we see them, we will have moved to South Dakota!
