Our Travels

May 29, 2009

Next stop: Colorado

After saying our goodbye's in California, it was off to Colorado to visit friends and check on our house that we are renting out. We started off our visit with a picnic in Golden at a nice park. One of our friends has a little boy that is a few days older than Keenan, another couple has a little boy that is five months younger and another couple is expecting in July! It was fun to watch the three little boys running around together. It kind of made me sad that we still didn't live in Colorado with all of our friends having babies at the same time.

Here's Eric and Keenan looking at the ducks.

Kelly and I with our little boys.

We went and checked out our house, I was mentally preparing for the worst... You never know with renters! The inside of our house was packed full of stuff, we think a few more people are living there then we originally thought but, it was clean and looked cared for. The lawn on the other hand, looked like a jungle! All of our (mostly Eric's) hard work keeping the lawn and the landscaping looking nice was mostly gone. No flowers in any of the flower beds, weeds in all the landscaping rocks, beer bottles in the mega high grass... sigh. At least the inside of the house looks nice. We also got to visit with some of our old neighbors, which was nice.

We stayed with my friend Lindsey and her family which was nice. They have 2 young girls so there was plenty of toys for Keenan. Somehow I managed to not get any pictures of her two little girls.

Eric went golfing with his friends so Lindsey and I took the kids to a park and met up with my friend Kristen and her little boy Evan. Once again, no pictures of Lindsey's girls but here's a picture of Keenan and Evan climbing.
Since Eric was golfing Lindsey and I took the kids to a Sushi bar and met up with her husband. The kids were good for a few minutes then they all turned to crazed little hellions. We couldn't eat fast enough to get out of there. As soon as we got to the car I realized I forgot my "to go" bag. Without thinking I exclaimed "Sh!t" to which Keenan immediately repeated it, Lindsey's four year old Reagan then pipes up loudly "I just chugged a whole beer!" (she had a root beer that was in a brown bottle) Neither Lindsey or I could help it, we both busted out laughing. At least there was some humor in our evening!

Our last night in Denver we met up with Eric's brother and his two little girls at Chuck E Cheese's. Keenan was immediately in Heaven. Big, ride able auto's everywhere! He quickly figured out that you needed "money" to stick in the slots to make the rides go and kept requesting more.

The three cousins. Maci, Keenan and Mia. I think Mia was the only one happy about getting the picture taken.
