"Hanging" Out in Steamboat

Our first morning we got up and went up the mountain!
Geneva was a little nervous about riding the gondola :)
The view at the top was breathtaking!


Later that afternoon Jesse, Robert, and I went zip lining for a couple hours. It was a blast!
 Grandma took the girls for ice cream :)
 And playing!

Colorado Dreaming

Well, we just got back from a magical week in Colorado. Our family loves the slower pace, mountain views, hiking, outdoor adventures, and all the family there. 
 They are such great travelers.
 We stayed with Aunt Di and Uncle Mike in Denver for a night. 
 After taking a walk and visiting with Aunt Di, we headed to Great Grandpa's and Aunt Deb's.
 Grandpa is such a sweet man. 
We were thankful for a wonderful conversation and time of prayer with him.

 The girls had fun picking wild flowers with Aunt Deb!
 Love her heart.
Mini Mouse slept hard for a bit on our 3-4 hour drive to Steamboat Springs.
Made it to Grandma and Grandpa Robert's house!
 Grandma has the BEST garden- she made the whole thing by herself!
Happy to be together!

We Miss You Papa and Mimi!

 The girls love dressing up and coming up with shows for us- it's very entertaining!
 Maddie is an Uno shark- she wins almost every game!
 We drove to Great Country Farms for peach picking one day.
 The girls loved the Ninja Warrior course (pictured behind them). I think Maddie did it 4 times!

 Yum. We made a delicious dinner with the peaches that night. Here's the recipe. 

 We miss you both- thank you for being flexible with plans, being great travel pals, very generous, serving us by doing yard work and much more. You both are wonderful grandparents and we're thankful for the ways you show love to us! We miss you so much! Favorite memories from the girls...
Geneva: getting kisses
Savannah: swimming in the ocean with Papa
Maddie: being with them at Word of Life Camp

Ocean City

On the way back from NY, we stopped in Ocean City, NJ. My dad was able to preach at Kevin Obrien's Sunday evening service. It was so wonderful to re-connect with the Obrien's- it's been 15 years since we've seen them! My dad's brothers and sister also came to visit us from PA. It was a great reunion!

I guess we've been busy over the last 15 years- I've gotten married, and combined we've had 7 kids!
Night at Funland!

Thanks for taking us on the Ferris wheel, Papa! 

Yummy custard.
Uno games at 10pm- it's summer!
Here's my dad's brothers and sister.
The cousins

 Poor Neva got a stomach big, but was a real trooper- she eve napped on the beach!
    Sand castles with Mimi!
 Papa is so good to his girls!


We had a fabulous few days at the beach!
