Trip to CO

We had a great trip to Colorado. It started with a drive out to CO on our 5th anniversary! Due to the occasion, I wanted to take Marcia to a nice restaurant. We found this cool little Italian place in Grand Junction, and were very happy to do something special.

It was $40 for the food, and we split the meal, and the proportions were insanely small. By the way, the meat is hidden under the parsley. It was good food though.

Lucas had an insanely incredible blowout. Here is the onesie that we just chucked because it was not salvageable. This was gross city. Thank goodness that both Marcia and I were there, so we could team clean this one.

Once in Colorado, Sam wasted no time getting into trouble with Jensen. They snuck away and filled up the tub and threw in a bunch of junk, like statues, apples, cups, starfish etc.

One of the highlights of the trip was seeing my little brother Don, who just got back from Iraq. We got to play Frisbee in the park for a while, and I was in heaven.

Here is us at the Denver zoo.

These little monkeys were teeny tiny. The bigger monkey is about the size of my fist.
About 65% of the time Sam and Jensen got along really well. And Sam wanted to hold his hand.
We had a great experience doing Lucas' blessing at my parents home. It was a very spiritual experience. Dad gave a great testimony, mom played the piano well, and it just turned out very nice.

It was great to spend some time with Tiana as well, after she got home from her mission. She was real excited to play with all the nieces and nephews.

On the way home, I missed the turn, and we drove an extra 110 miles. Aaargh. We didn't get in until after midnight. It was a miserable close to an amazing weekend.
