Dave's Family came in to town!

It was really nice to see his parents,who live in Illinois, we don't get to see them very often. It was nice to hang out with them and just talk.

Dave's sister Marybeth and her family came out too. Jensen had so much fun playing with his cousins. He is still saying "Hailey Wyatt" every day. We all went to the aquarium. My dad volunteer dives on the weekends. It was really fun watching the fish attacking him.

Lily was really cute pointing out the fish.
I cut off Lily's baby mullet. I debated for a long time to do it or not. I finally did it and I AM SO HAPPY!________________________________________________________
We ate at great Mexican food place afterwards.
Jensen loves dip. Salsa dip is a bit different though.

We celebrated Josh's birthday by eating cake and playing mini golf. We only made it through a couple of holes before the kids lost all their balls and their clubs.
I ambitiously started carving out a place in the rocks to plant a garden. I LOVE MOVING ROCKS. Psst -Really I don't:)

The kids were nicely playing peekaboo and tickling each other until I turned the camera on- Then Jensen yanked on her arm until she cried:)

All Things Trains!
Jensen loves trains. I mean he adores them. When we sing the wheels on the bus - "the Jensen on the bus says' I Like trains." This kid can't go to bed at night without us reading his train books and he will drive his trains around on his bed until he passes out gazing lovingly at the little engines. So when we found out the Colorado Railway museum brings in a very special guest once a year we knew we had to go see Thomas the train:)

Here the little tyke is with his tank engine backpack and cup. He had a couple of his favorite trains in his bag.

As you go through these pictures you may notice this look on almost all of them. It is the "Where I am is pretty awesome but have you noticed we are surrounded by trains?" look. I don't think he blinked for three hours.

A cool miniature track. They actually had a little Thomas chugg'n along too.
Ringing the bell.
He stamped as many train faces on himself as he could. Right before falling asleep last night I had to say goodnight to the engine stamped on his tummy.Grandma caved in a bought him the t-shirt and hat.
Riding Thomas

Yeah it was a fun day:)

AND LILY SPEAKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She turns one tomorrow. Happy Birthday Lily! She says mom, dad, down, and up. She by far uses "up" most often. It usually gets her what she wants- to be held.:) She was pretty tired.

It is pretty crazy to me that it is 2008- let alone it is September of '08. Things just pass by so quickly. We went up to Breckenridge over Labor day. It was really nice to get away. Best part was we stayed at the hotel for free because it was one of those condo pitches. We sat down with the sales guy for a total of five minutes before he said "Well I can't really help you- lets see if we can get you out of here." AND my parents watched the kids for one night so Dave and I could celebrate our 3rd anniversary.

We went to a children's museum. It was a ton of fun. Lily loved all the stuffed animals- she kept trying to wrestle them- a skill she learned from her brother.

Of course Jensen was drawn to the many "boy" toys he went for the tools the trains and the tractors.

There was a cute bear cave. Lily loved hugging all the teddy bears. Jensen wrestled hugged and kicked them.

Jensen got to be a monkey and jump on a blowup play house. I had to drag him out.
We went on a beautiful little walk. I LOVE GARAGE SALES! We got the baby backpack for $15. Lily rode in luxury. This is Lake Dillon. So pretty.

Last weekend we went to Chatfield reservoir to show our love of this country and voice our opinions. Americans for Yeah for Drilling!
Dave thought the ATM station was pretty funny.

And just some cute pics of the kids:)
