Siblings Visit Denver

Following our Christmas visit to KC, Chelsee, Katie, and fiance Adam rode back with the boys and I to Denver.  John and I had planned a mini overnight ski vacation and they were our babysitters!  The trip home to Denver was a long one.  Katie and Adam hung in there like champs as the kids threw toys, yelled, and whined in the back seat behind them.  They weren't horrible - just extremely bored as the WHOLE car ride was during the day and they didn't really sleep much.  In the future we will probably not do it that way again!  I like to have a least of few hours of sleeping children. : )  Sometime shortly after passing Hays we stopped at a Dairy Queen with a fun play area to let them (and us too) stretch and run some energy off.

We arrived home around 8:30 and we pretty much crashed.  John and I had to pack for our ski trip and get to bed at a decent time.

The next morning we got up and the kids and sibs went in one car and John and I in the other.  They were off to the Children's museum downtown and we were headed to the slopes.  From what I heard - they had a pretty good time while we were gone and the kids enjoyed hanging out with their aunts and soon to be uncle.  I've "borrowed" some of their pics from FB to put on this post.  I'll post about our ski trip later.

Looks like they had a GREAT time!  We got back home on Friday night and the five of us stayed up planning the rest of our time together over strawberry margaritas.  Saturday was our tubing day. We drove... and drove... and drove... in the mountains.  Probably should have acclimated them a little first because I think everyone was a little nauseated.  Poor Adam had gotten the flu bug while we were skiing and had just gotten over it.  I think he said he got sick 13 times.  Yuck!  I'm sorry you were sick while here Adam.  What a trooper!  Sunday we met up with  cousin Bernita who lives in Aurora for lunch.  It was nice to catch up and see her again.

We were so thankful for the chance to get away for a couple of days and have them out to visit us. I wish we could have shown everyone around town some more but time did not allow.  Maybe next time.  I'm keeping pictures of gluten free menus I see now Chelsee!  Next time I'll be armed and ready to take you to a UNIQUE Denver restaurant instead of things you already have back home. : )

Glad you guys made it back safe.  Love you!
