I took the kids with me to Colorado a few weeks ago to spend the week with my brother who lives at home with my parents, while they went on a much needed vacation. We had a great time visiting and got to do some fun things and see some special friends.
Gloria and I went to Colorado State together. She was a freshman when I was a senior, but we clicked so fast and became good friends. We haven't seen each other much over the past 8 years or so, but we've kept in touch and it was so fun to get together in person and meet each other's kids for the first time. Gloria is such a great mom to her sweet 3 boys and loves her husband dearly and seeks the Lord daily, I really admire her and wish we lived closer so we could get together to play more often. Carson had such fun with her boys, digging for bugs in the back yard was a highlight of the afternoon. Thanks for making time to hang out with us, friend!
We got to spend some time with my friend, Angie, and her 3 sweet kiddos. The kids had fun painting and playing outside. Angie convinced me to go to her Zumba class with her and it was so much fun! We took all the kids and put them in the childcare at the rec center and off we went to our class. I'd been wanting to try Zumba for a while, so it was super fun to do it with her for the first time. I stumbled along, but had a great time. The music is fun and I can see it could be a really great workout once you get a hang of the moves and work it. Angie works it. :-)
We spent a wonderful day downtown in Boulder at the Farmer's Market and then walking all around Pearl Street, where the tulips were absolutely stunning.
Don't the kids look thrilled that someone was nice enough to take our picture together on Mother's Day weekend?!
Carson and Livi had a great time dressing up in Grandma's robes and snuggling up or doing some martial arts moves with their blow up baseball bats from Chick-fil-A.
