Independence Day

We had a fun filled gorgeous day celebrating Independence Day today.  Here's a quick clip of some of the excitement.

As you can see we're continuing to have a great time in Colorado.
We're looking forward to a fantastic lunch at Casa Bonita and hiking at Red Rocks tomorrow.

Snow in July

Quick clip from Breckenridge

We're having an adventurous time out here in Colorado.  The kids have had to nap every single day because we've been so busy having so much fun.  At the end of dinner tonight Victoria said, "I wish I could live this day all over again."  Enough said.  Family vacations in Colorado rock!

T-Ball Fans

Christian was pumped up for his second night of t-ball all week.  
He just couldn't bare the anticipation, even wearing his knee high super special
t-ball socks all days when it was 98 degrees.

He had a lot of fans there this week and it was picture day.
I was excited for him to show off and didn't take many pictures
except for the video he insisted on.

Mama Jeanne and Brian and Molly were also there.
Too bad I didn't think to get a picture with them!

Here's Victoria and Mama Deb watching closely from behind the backstop.

Mama Deb was cheering very loudly for him.
After the game Christian informed me he would like me to cheer that loud next week:-)

The funniest part of the game was when Christian had a nice hit and made it to second base.
Three kids later he was still stranded on second base.
All of a sudden he runs around the diamond right to me and bends down for his glove.

He said, "I FORGOT MY GLOVE!"  All frazzled and out of breath.
"You're on second base still!!  Get out there!!!!" We were all yelling at him.

Poor kid looked confused, then dropped the glove and ran back to second.

When he was finally headed to home plate he missed it by about five feet.
"You missed home plate, Buddy!  Go back and touch it!" I told him.

"Aahhh, it was close enough," was his response and he grabbed his water bottle

Santa Reopens

We are having a FABULOUS time in Colorado.  One thing we really wanted to do, among 1,000 others was visit North Pole.  Last year we had the BEST time and we're been on fire watch for the last couple weeks.  A few days ago the daily updated site stated that the fire had closed down the highway and had yet to actually damage North Pole.

Tonight  the site says it will reopen  TOMORROW!!!!

We can't wait to tell the kids.  Another night in Breckinridge, then 4th of July party then to the North Pole.  We'll have to fit in Casa Bonita somewhere in there too.  This vacation is the best.
