Well, we survived the long drive too and from Colorado Springs, and had a great time while we were there!
As planned, we didn't do much of anything, and just enjoyed each other's company and let the kids play together. It was great!
Saturday morning, we played outside with sidewalk chalk and bubbles. After nap on Saturday, we let Hendrix and Mikaela run through the sprinklers. Jameson wasn't all too interested in getting wet. :) Tim cooked us ribeye steaks for dinner with corn on the cob and it was so tasty!
Sunday morning, we went to the park, then planted garden boxes when we got back - before lunch time, because the temps were heating up quickly! After naptime on Sunday, we painted a bit, then good friends of Sarah and Tim came over for dinner - burgers and dogs. Mmmm!
Both nights we celebrated with delicious ice cream sundaes after dinner. Ahhhmazing. :)
We were on the road at 5:57 am on Monday morning, and home just before 2.
Let me tell you, once you venture off the interstate in Wyoming and South Dakota, it becomes very interesting. The best word I can think of to describe it is "wilderness." It actually made me a little uneasy. I'm talking, 50 or 60 miles straight where you don't even see a house. No power lines, just cows dotting the hillside. It was a gorgeous drive, just far from civilization. Definitely an experience.
So as you can see, it was fairly uneventful, and that was just how we hoped it would be! The photos are pretty grainy, and I'm not sure why, but they're still adorable! Enjoy.

Thanks, Sarah, for the cool new Batman figures!
I know, you're dying. Sweetest tushies ever.
