It was so much fun being able to spend time with relatives in Colorado.  One evening we had dinner with family.  We wanted to get a group shot and I asked Uncle Lawrence and Uncle Bill to be my models while everyone got ready.  This one is what I call my “smile picture”.   A picture that makes me smile just because.


Whenever the kids went exploring, they would carry a shovel around with them. We had been told by a few people to be especially careful roaming because the weather was hot!

Opa and Adrian found a rattler while they were working on the yard and Audrey saw one while exploring. Thankfully, my children are less concerned about finding a snake than I am and they spent many hours roaming Grandma’s “backyard.”
