Colorado Summer Trip

There's something about road trips that make me want to giggle and cry at the same time... Actually more cry than giggle. Why does flying have to be so expensive?! Optimism. OK. We really saw some beautiful sights on our way to Scott's cousins wedding in Colorado. It is truly a gorgeous state.
This, unfortunately, was not one of our gorgeous sites. This is the face of a child thinking, " If you jam one more cracker in my mouth, I'm gonna lose it!!" Poor Jenna.

Suckers were our saving grace! Oh, and Barbie movies.


Before you call CPS! You need to know that at this point of Jenna's life her buns were "sturdy" enough for her to keep great balance! She wasn't going anywhere. This was just another diaper changing break.



This picture cracks me up! For those of you offended by tub shots, look a bit closer!! It just so happens that there are no offensive body parts showing!!






Daisy and Nana at the fish hatchery. Scott's Uncle Ed worked at the hatchery and had some major pull on getting us loads of fish food! :) Notice the sweaters!! This is June ladies and gentlemen June!!





Here's Uncle Ed, Jenna, Scotty, and Aunt Marsha.






We went for a drive up in the mountains. We were about 2weeks early for all the wild flowers but it was still amazing! Look at how stinken green!!







OK all you photographers! Scotty took this one and I think there needs to be some award. Like the "Awesome Picture Taking Daddy" award. We were just driving along and he stopped and said, "Lets get a picture right here." Good eye babe.








Sooo Sweet! Here we are at Sarah's wedding. Jenna got passed around to everyone but I think she loved Papa best! This one is definately a framer.









Why? You ask? Because he's Scott. That's why. I don't know how the crap those glasses wound up at a classy wedding...wait yes I do! He brought them!!! Wow! He makes me laugh!










This is Scott's oldest sister Shannon and her hubby Robert. They live in Denver in this awesome house that they've totally personalized. They had us over for breakfast and we had such a great time!











This picture means so much to Scott. This is Ed and Sheila's "Weena's" ( that's what Daisy calls her) home. He grew up going there every summer as a beautiful escape and now we go every summer for the same reason! We get to enjoy cool weather, fun family, and Weena's amazing cooking!












This is our Jenna in the same high chair the Weena ate in. I love things like that. I've never been super sentimental but things like that are pretty special.













This is Weena's mom. We call her Nana! This woman is amazing! She is 96! She's sharp as a tack and hilarious! I love spending time with her and hearing about how she grew up and how ridiculous kids are these days! :) "Kids these days." I love saying that.
