Colorado Trip

We visited Karen's family out in Colorado last week. Jeannette and Steve were kind enough to let us stay with them. We had a lot of great adventures with all the family. Tyler really enjoyed the bubbles with his cousins. He ran around all afternoon exclaiming, "bubbles, bubbles, bubbles".

Uncle Dan created the master bubble maker out of a hanger and the boys created some huge bubbles, kyle had a really good one!

Tyler had a ton of fun playing with his cousin Alex, they both had fun running after the bubbles.

The grandparents and Aunt Christine chilled on the patio while the boys played...

Uncle Steve was the grill master for the day...

The boys eventually ended up downstairs to play Fourza on Justin's XBox 360 on the big screen.

It was fun to get together with Tyler's cousins Alex and Corey, who are just 6 months older...

Alex was so good at sharing with Tyler, he would ask for 2 chips, one for himself and one for Tyler...they sure did like Uncle Nate :)

Kyle's "got the whole [bubble] in his hands..." heh heh

So we got Grandma to participate in a little innocent game of craps, the funny thing is how good she was at it. :)

Tyler liked playing over at Uncle Dan and Aunt Christine's, they had a table just his size...

Here comes Dan and Christine's big ol' boxer, Tucker. No worries though, Tyler had him eating out of the palm of his hand :)

I was happy that we got a chance to visit an old friend of mine, Jenn, while we were in CO, good times!

The Zoo

Last week we went to the zoo. It was a dream come true for Tyler... there was room to run around, water fountains shaped like lions, lots of animals, and most importantly there were lots and lots of monkeys (his favorite animal).

Test Burn

The Fire Department burned down the house next to our complex. It was an incredible experience. We were about 40 yards from the house but it felt like standing right next to a camp fire.
