A visit with friends...

Two of my friends from Michigan, Lindsey & Meredith, came to visit us for a week. We had a great time. Our adventures outside of Boulder included Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, White Water Rafting, Breckenridge and a ride down an Alpine slide.

Here we are at Rocky Mountain National Park.

Our Eventful Weekend!

My brother is in town for a few days for work, so on Sunday, we enjoyed a hike. It was actually quite eventful as we SAW A BEAR run across the trail we were on!!!!!!!!!! He didn't see us (whew!), but it was still a bit of a shock to actually see one in the wild. Oh, do I hope that is the first and last encounter with a Colorado black bear!!
This weekend, we also attended a wedding of some Boulder friends. Here is a family shot with everyone looking and eyes open!
A couple of John's little friends were also at the wedding...

Some of Mama's Favorites...

Here are a few pictures from this week that I thought were cute...

Pretty much at any point during the day, you will find John playing with a ball. When he wakes up in the morning or from a nap and he sees one of his balls, he gets so excited, as if it's the first time he has ever seen a ball! He loves to throw the ball, whether or not he has someone to throw it with...often he just throws the ball, goes to get it, and throws it again, only to continue the pattern. Or, he will just walk up to another mom the he doesn't know at the park and start a game of catch. His favorite person to play catch with, though, is daddy. :)
Hiking and picking wildflowers. Playing in the backyard.

Little Mountain Man

Johnny is finally walking on his own!!! Here he is blazing down a path by our house. Since the path has cows on one side, a little stream on the other and is covered with rocks, it offers hours of entertainment for a little boy! Behind John are the Flatirons, Boulder's famous landmark. After doing a hike in this area with John in the backpack, he enjoyed having some time for his own little hike. With a stick in one hand and a rock in the other, he is all set to take on the mountain!
