jim and maggie visit colorado

Well, this took me way too long to post, but life has been pretty hectic around here.(Sorry Jim and maggie for making you wait too long.) We had a pretty laid back time catching up, and going a few places. (We were at the tail end of their trip to the Tetons/ Jackson Hole and Mount Rushmore, both tough acts to follow, no matter how awesome we are.) For the most part it was pretty rainy here, which was nice for us after the record heat we had in July and early August, but a bit cold for them. Here are are some picks we took from the visit. Too bad we didn't have any of Kristie's parents destroying us at disco bowling, then again, I was so pitiful its probably better not to remember. Here are a few we took at the Parade of Homes.

Kristie and Jim (nice purse.)

Kristie, Jim and Maggie

Cool little girls bedroom (for meg-o).

Awesome rubber tiles and fake grass to look like a little garden path.

Super creepy dude who stood at the end of a hallway in one of the homes. When people walked past him, he'd half whisper, "Hey, hey.... You like soft water?"After asking, he would give an inconspicuous head nod toward an unfinished storage room on his right in the picture.

It was fun having them, and hopefully it won't be as long before the next time we get to visit. Lacey was good and worn out, and misses the extra people to play with.

hmmm...do you think I could build one of those beds? What a cute idea.
Hurricane Quincy would love a little play house of her own to make messes in. Maybe she would quit destroying mine!

I love the parade of homes! We tried to go in utah, but didn't realize tickets were $30, and didn't make it past the entryway before someone chased us down and kicked us out.

I miss you. come visit us after you graduate.

I had to tell you that I just saw a commercial for "DIM SUM THEN SOME" a local restaurant that is having it's grand opening this week. The advertisement shows a lot of unrecognizable food, and a really tall wedding cake as the announcer says "specializing in Chinese cuisine and weddings". So there you have it. Dim Sum + wedding = something apparently not as unusual as we once thought.

When I come to visit I am bringing madam honeydo with me and I plan to let you take care of her while we are on our mission. So be prepared to beat me at cards.

Also plan on sharing all of your pictures with me and showing me how to post stuff on my blog.

Have a great trip and be careful and stay safe.
