Turkey Day

It's been a while since this thing has been updated. We continue to recover from the house fire. We get the key to the new place we're renting on Monday. Thanksgiving has been a great weekend and a welcomed break. It's been nice spending some time with family here in TX. Next big thing is Christmas in SC.

Guess who came to visit?

Grandma and Grandpa Hall! We had a whirlwind visit with them and it was great! Besides doing all the touristy stuff they even watched the kids so Dave and I could have a date night! Which we ended up grocery shopping during, but hey, that's how dull our life is! JK! Anyone with little kids knows what a joy it is to be able to go in the grocery store and actually look at what you are putting in your cart. While our lovely visitors were here we went to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak(COLD!), The Flying W, Royal Gorge and a few museums here and there. I think it was an awesome visit and I know they were sad(we were too) to leave this morning. If only Jack would have been here to eat all our yummy leftovers!!! You can see from the pics that we all had fun!! Can't wait to see the Hall's again soon!

ok pics to come soon...not uploading right now...

Balloon Festival and Dinos!

My father has become very insistent that I put new pics up on the double. ha! Here they are Daddy! A while back when went to the Balloon Festival here in the Springs for their night glow. It was amazing!!! We also spent a day driving around our area and ended up in Woodland Park at a dinosaur museum. Way overpriced but the kids loved it! That's what its all about anyway right? :) Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we did taking them. Coming soon, family pics and Emma's 4th birthday...where has the time gone????

some more...

Here are some more pics from my parent's and Chelsea's visit so far! Chelsea leaves tomorrow to go back to Texas, she will be missed!! On July 4th, we watched Dave take off for Cali(no pics :(), went to the USA Olympic Training Center, went to the Air Force Academy and climbed Pike's Peak! Well, maybe we didn't climb, but the train sure did! When we got up to the summit, the temperature was in the low 30's!!! We even had the world famous Pike's Peak Donuts at 14,000 ft! They were awesome!!! Today we ventured back to Manitou Springs and Garden of the Gods, it was a beautiful day in the low 60s, in JULY!!! So far we have had an awesome time and look forward to more fun times this week!

the Stanfords do Colorado

and this was only their first day! Needless to say, it was a LONG but FUN day!!! Dave was supposed to leave today for California but he ended up getting to stay an extra day! The weather was awesome, a little warm but nothing like the humidity of Texas. We have another long day tomorrow with Pike's Peak and some other fun things! The kids are all about Honey and Papa right now and that is fine with me! Dave and I got to enjoy our awesome dinner tonight because Honey was all about helping Mason out with his food! Sorry for the pic overload, I just couldn't resist! More to come....
