Denver - a little late

So here are my Denver pictures - and there are a lot of them and I could have done a lot more! It's so hard to decide.

On Saturday we went to a wonderful park, that even has a little train. How fun! (pictured: Levi, in front; Katie, Miles, and Lexi - from left to right; and Uncle Kenny in back).

On Sunday we visited the Littleton Historic Farm. It's a lovely place to just walk around and see old buildings, some animals, etc.

Here is Ben putting Jonas on a cow. Mooooooove.

My other husband.

Ben and Jonas inside an old schoolhouse.

Yes Miles is doing what you think he's doing. Yes, he is weird.

A family photo.

The Coneheads

All kids need is a little creativity and look what they come up with - loads of fun! They all had a great time in Grandma and Grandpa's backyard and with all their fun "toys."

From left to right: Melanie, Josh, Claire, and Miles (cousins).

Claire and Jonas sending "messages" to each other via the cone-phone.

Before heading out on Monday we stopped by Jim and Diana's friend's home. They have all sorts of creatures there - snakes, lizards, tarantulas, etc. Lucky for me Jonas was too antsy and wanted to just walk around everywhere, so he and I just went out and played. Miles loved touching the snake - I was real surprised at that! It was fun.

It was really great to "meet" the Hudsons - Ben's sister Debbie, husband Kenny, and great kids Katie, Melanie, Josh, and Claire. Miles still talks about them and often pretends he is Katie, Jonas is Melanie, I'm Claire, and Ben is Josh.

Here are some sweet pictures of Aunt Debbie and Cousin Katie reading to the kids.

a couple of comments: first, miles isn't weird, he's three. i think, by definition, the weirdness comes with it. and second, are you wearing actual jewelry?!? a necklace? whoa.

also, that snake grosses me out.

erin said...

also, you look really cute in that pic.

emily said...

yes, 3 and weird are probably synonymous.

i sometimes wear jewelry - especially to church.

the snake is absolutely gross.

and thanks.
