The Campbell's!!!

I was so grateful to have Spencer, Sara, Emma, and Thane come to Colorado for a visit. It is not an easy feat for Spencer to get time off of his Pediatric Dental residency so when they said they were coming for a visit we were beyond excited! We spent the weekend laughing, reading, watching BYU basketball, hiking, eating Cafe Rio, cooking, making pretzels, chatting, riding bikes, staying up late, getting up early (to exercise), playing Air Hockey, learning how to make a fruit pizza, trying to convince Spenc and Sara that Colorado is the best place to live, and making lots and lots of fun memories! Thank you so much Campbell's for coming to see our part of the world...we love you SO much!

Abbie reading bedtime stories to the cousins.
Emma and Jake did lots of giggling!

Learning from the master pretzel maker!

Saralyn was so sweet to show Abbie how to make her yummy fruit pizza. She took Abbie and Kate shopping for all of the ingredients. I think Abbie was in heaven! Sara also showed me how she cooks her salmon on the bbq. So easy and delicious...I had no idea!

Picnic lunch at Garden of the Gods.

Emma being....Emma!

Thane has to be one of the sweetest and happy toddlers that I know!

I think Abbie looks really really tall in this picture! How did my baby grow up so fast?

We were also able to have a really fun game night with the McOmbers and Welch's. I have no idea why I didn't get the camera out but we had a great time eating, playing, and chating. It was a perfect weekend and we can't wait for the next time we get to make more memories with our wonderful family! What a huge blessing they all are to us...I couldn't be more grateful!

Abbie's Birthday Party

My baby girl turned 11! She wanted to celebrate by having some friends over for a baking party. Abbie loves to be in the kitchen! She is such a joy to have in our house and I really am enjoying being the mother of a tween!

Connor and Cory got Abbie two adorable cookbooks!

Jake and I suprised Abbie at school and brought her some Subway.
