Family Visit (Part II)

Oh Yeah! Part two! So on Saturday we went to this awesome park about a mile away from our apartment. It was so much fun. There is a few ponds, a killer play ground and beautiful landscaping. I can't wait until Wyatt is a little older so he can enjoy it more.

He wasn't into picture taking at that moment.

Example of the beautiful Landscaping

I stumbled upon these models in this giant tree..."Work it, Work it!"

YEAH!!! I love grandpoppy

Fun weekend with the Fam! (Part I)

We were so happy to have my dad (step style), Naomi and Eli come to visit us this weekend. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH and wish we could see them more often. We went up to the mountains on Friday to a place called O'Fllon Park. It's a modest little park that has some awesome short trails and there is a little stream that runs through the whole length of the location. Wyatt had a great time...we have found he really likes the outdoors.

Along with the hike we took and the million pictures I took. We also played some hill billy golf which is hard to explain but is a really simple and fun game. While Naomi and I weren't playing that we were doing a premature "Senior" picture shoot and practiced our model walk.
Dad and I also through around the frisbee a bit. It was fun to get some fresh air and spend some quality time together!!!

Half Birthday!!!

Me and Fred with my new high chair!!

"W" is for Wyatt!

"OK Mom! I've had enough pictures now!!"

Wyatt is six months old, can you believe it! He has mastered getting his feet up to his mouth to chew on. We bought him this mini high chair that fits onto a regular kitchen chair. It was cheaper and is better for the space available in our apartment!! Wyatt is still too young to have cake so Austin and I celebrated by eating some DQ...Yummy!

Church Labor Day Retreat

It has been a while since I've updated so I am starting a few weeks back. Wyatt and Austin went on their first Trailhead Church Retreat over labor day weekend. (I went last year alone because Austin had just started working at Best Buy and couldn't ask off). We stayed in the lovely Highlands Camp in Allenspark, CO (about 20 mins away from Estes Park).
We really enjoyed our stay. Every family had their own room, each having four or more single beds. The first night Austin and I thought we could share a single being slender people and all but about halfway through the night I kicked him off and into his own single. Wyatt is so funny. He always sleeps so well when we are on "vacation" while at home he wakes up ever 4ish hours like clockwork. I think he slept a solid six hours the first night.

On Saturday morning the women had a time of sharing and reflection. It proved to be a very meaningful time of sharing our hearts with one another. Many people broke down and it was evident that we all needed someone to listen to the challenges of parenting and marriage and just life is general. For me the time was priceless and I felt as if I walked away from the whole experience loving all of the women in a different and deeper way.

The guys went on a manly hike in the afternoon. The rest of the day was filled with relaxation and rest. We played games with a number of people (we love games!!).

Sunday morning I was in charge of worship during a time of prayer. We sang six songs total and Austin helped by playing the guitar with a few other dudes. It went so much better than I could have imagined. This was my first time being the el capitano for the Worship Team, so I was a little nervous, but everyone did a great job and I have a lot of fun in the process. I hope I can do it again someday.

After lunch we went to Estes Park where I looked for some Christmas presents. We went with two other couples from our Small Group from church. It was a grand ol' time.

In closing: We are so thankful that God had provided us with a church family since we moved to Colorado. We still miss everyone from college very much and of course our wonderful families but are glad that some meaningful friendships have started to form here.
