Last Trip

With Colby starting clinic in a couple of weeks we will probably not be able to leave town during the break between semesters so we took one last trip to Denver.  But we had too because Colby's brother Brady came home from his mission in May and we still hadn't seen him yet.  We just had to introduce him to his one and only niece!!!


She loves her new uncle!

Do you not just love this face!!!

Since this would be the last time we were all together to took a few family photos.

Children of the corn

These trampoline pictures turned out awesome!  Too bad Colby's dad's head is missing.

We quickly learned that my skirt likes to fly up in the air so we had to take some pics over again.  Whoops!  Quite revealing!

While in Denver Colby and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary.  This year we kept it simple because earlier in the year we went to a Josh Groban concert and counted that towards our anniversary.

So we packed up a little picnic dinner and headed out to a beautiful little park up on the hill.

It was a perfect night!

The next day we ended up taking Eden back to play on the super amazing playground we found.

While we were there I colored my sister-in-laws hair.  it turned out really cute!

One of the best things about going to Denver is how much I get to see my best friend Jess.  After she graduated college and got married she moved to seattle for 5 years where we hardly got to see each other.  Now I see her a couple times a year!  We love it!  I really hope we end up in Denver because I really miss living close to her.

Just no one like her

You come across someone in your life that just isn't like anybody else.  They understand you, they know you like no one else seems to.  Even though you may not be climbing mountains or swimming oceans, just sitting with them is enough.  Well, as cheesy as that all may sound to me that one person is my sister.  I feel so blessed to have such an amazing sister.  Sure she can be weird and annoying and quirky but aren't we all at one point or another.  

Ryanne is amazing and makes me laugh.  I have been so fortunate that whenever Colby has had a busy week like finals Ryanne will always come down and keep me company.  Even when Eden was born Ryanne stayed with me a week and helped me convert to motherhood.  She was just what I needed and I know that I could not have done it without here.

Colby just wrapped up his 6th trimester of school and Ryanne came down to play with me and Eden.  We had a great time, as always.

We spent some time at the zoo...

saw some really strange animals like Giant Anteaters.  Ya know it is animals like that that really make you think that the Lord has a sense of humor.

Always when Ryanne comes we get a lot of projects done.  We work really well together and always get a lot accomplished.

First we made her a wreath - she helped me make one a few months ago so we threw one together for her too!  I love it!

Christmas star - I am in love with that red paper!!!

Our super cool sister-in-law got Ryanne a kindle for her birthday. My sister is a huge reader!  I think she has read more books than anyone I have ever met!
So I made her a cute little case to store her kindle in.

We also started another project that I just finished tonight.  I am kind of excited about it and I will post pics later.

So again another successful and productive visit with the most amazing sister ever.  I love you Ryanne and know that my life would not be the same without you!
