America Trip 2017: Colorado

After leaving Oklahoma we headed to Colorado to stay with the girls' grandmother Lisa, known as Mimi, and their Aunt Lilia. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and fun playgrounds and backyard. We also got to see many family members that hadn't seen Madi since she was six months old and hadn't yet met the twins.

We visited a fun playground close to Lisa the day after we arrived and spent the afternoon relaxing and visiting.

On Sunday we got a chance to get together with Lisa's parents and all of the Beard family in Colorado Springs. They have great potlucks and the girls loved meeting everyone!

We headed up to Greeley on Monday to see family on Jason's side, but not before a quick introduction stop to Noodles and Company for the girls.

We spent the evening with the girls' great grandmother Grandma Tosh and great great grandmother Meema (who is 102!!). The loved playing in the sandbox in the nursing home courtyard and blowing bubbles for their grandmothers. It was a wonderful time for Jason to visit with them.

The following day we headed to Jason's Aunt Terrie's home to spend the day with family. The girls loved all of Terrie's rescued animals and enjoyed playing outside.

We started the drive back to Colorado Springs making a quick stop in Denver for an infamous favorite - Casa Bonita. The girls loved watching the skits and cliff divers and we enjoyed reminiscing over college visits there and delicious sopapillas. 😋

We made a quick stop at our family friend's Pearl and Peggy and they got a chance to meet the girls as well. We wish there had been more time for friends and family in Colorado, but there's just never enough time!

Our last day was spent eating bacon and packing for the drive we had to make the following day. We also got a chance to sneak away for a few hours to celebrate our 9th anniversary! INSERT LINK

Thank you so much Lisa and Lilia for letting us stay with you, kick you out of your bed, feeding us, and spending so much time playing, laughing, and visiting!
