Fun with Grandma and Papa

On Thursdays, Bill's parents take David for the day to give me time to get things done around the house or, lately, to just rest! They love having him and it's so wonderful to have a day to do laundry without a stair climbing trying to keep up!

Sometimes they go to the mall to walk (or run) and play on the cars.
He's just now learning that they move and
somehow has learned where the money goes in!!

If the weather is nice,
they head to the park to play, swing, slide and climb.

No matter where they go,
there are always smiles from all sides!

Early Halloween Party

Some good friends of ours had a halloween party last weekend. The games were going to be outside, but the weather changed all that for us! They set up their house with:

a bean bag toss
scavenger hunt
ball throw
even a cake walk!

Our little Firefighter had a great time .. and made Uncle Rich very proud!

He found the book shelf first!
Confused by the cake walk.
"Can I just take one?"

My smiley boys!

We had fun and brought home a very tired firefighter! We will dress up again for a Trick-or-Treat Street at Bill's school and Family Fun Night at Bill's parents' church (both on the 30th!).

And the best part...

They fly in next week!!

Just a Cute Kid!

Race car jammies...

Sitting high and reading! He loves sitting on the couch or this chair to read books or play with his toys!

Fall Foliage Flury

This is from a few weeks ago... we will catch up soon! Promise!

A few Saturdays ago we decided to take a drive up to the mountains to see the changing leaves. There are some BEAUTIFUL drives to see the aspens change, but you have to hit it at just the right time. There are only a couple weeks of changing colors before the first snow storm hits and the leaves drop.

So we headed up I 70, with this GORGEOUS view ahead of us:

And this PRECIOUS view behind us!
When we got to the road we were going to take to see the colors, it was closed for construction! So we just continued up I 70 and went over Loveland Pass. When we got to the top ... well, let's just say I'm so thankful for a husband who knows how to pack for a day trip to the mountains ... in any season!
It wasn't snowing, but it was COLD and WINDY!

Our family!
