Hanging out with the family

Cameron hanging out with the big cat.

Cousin Zane and Cameron...boys being boys.

Cousin Paris showing her artistic side.

Good times were had by all.

A morning boat ride on Lake Estes. And, their first boat ride.

Colorado has some fun playgrounds.

There's that elk again. Crossing the river this time!

On top of the world in RMNP

Off to Rocky Mountain National Park. We have our mascot to guide us.

You really feel like you're on top of the world up there.

We had a snowball fight!

Their second time at the Continental Divide!

We found where Santa keeps his raindeer!

Estes Park Day Two

This was the best trip yet with the kids. They travelled very well and we all had a wonderful time. It was so relaxing. Except for Jonathon got pink eye from Cameron. I at least waited until we got home to get it! Ouch. That stuff is awful.

Fishing on the Big Thompson River. We didn't catch any.

But both Cameron and Jasmine caught a fish at the fish pond next door! So did Zane and Paris. Thanks to Grandma who cooked up the trout for us. It tasted really good!

It was pretty funny to hear Cameron exclaim "there's a raindeer out our front door". They came out every morning and night to graze on the leaves.

7522 feet high in Estes Park

We made it to Estes Park. What an awful two weeks we've had. Cameron's flu lingered for a good week and he's still not 100%. Then he got pink eye. He still feels lousy. Then he gave his pink eye to Jonathon and poor Jonathon's never it before and he's not feeling so great. I'm still getting over what they both gave me! Mostly swollen glands for a few weeks. But hey, we have a georgous view of a rushing river out our front door, now capped mountains behind us and a nice condo to relax in. Aside from the hour and a half it took to get a rental car and I lost the baby bag at the airport, things are going great.

First a little help moving the luggage to the car.

Whew!! Jasmine's lipstick made it!

Here's our bungalow for the week.

And the view from the front door! The sound of the river is music to my ears!

The perfect rock slide right in front of our front door.

Bye for now. More coming soon.

Not much improvement

I hope we actually get to go on vacation to Colorado at the end of the week. Jasmine is still a mess and now Cameron has a fever. Jonathon's off to North Carolina for a few days. Send good thoughts are way that these two get better soon.

Poor Jazzie

Our poor baby is suffering from asthma attacks and some nasty flu this week. We're off to Colorado at week's end, so hopefully she'll be all better by then. Our sweet girl suffers horribly from asthma and add a flu to the picture and it's just miserable for her.

Cameron's being a great trouper and finding things to do while I dote on his sister.

And of course there's Mortimer, always happy for a pet.

Jasmine and Cameron love to help me cook. They made meatballs yesterday and now Jasmine's helping me make stir fry.

Jazzie the flapper girl

Time to play dress up.

June has arrived!

It's been a long cold winter. Still not hot, and still raining, but June has arrived!

Tyson Rec center birthday party for our twin friends Andre and Lillian.

We are still loving our piano!

Ice cream with our best friends Natalie and Lorelei.

Ok, so I put a karate robe on Jasmine and she suddenly starts acting out Karate kicks. How do they learn that? I don't recall exposing her to karate!

I found a trampoline at a yard sale. A little jumping before bedtime!
