A Colorado Car Show

Jill's cousin, Marc, was in charge of an Italian car show in Colorado the first weekend in June. He and Chris share a love of cars and when they get together can talk of nothing else, so Marc invited us to come out for the show. We are always happy to travel to the Denver area and visit with Aunt Charlotte and Uncle Jim and this trip was another great one!

James handing out a trophy to one of the winners at the car show, and when he was done, he ran to me yelling, "I did it, Mom!" It was unbelievably cute!!

Shenks and Speed...

In May, we enjoyed a short but wonderful visit with Uncle Dan & Aunt Naomi. We wandered through the Thanksgiving Point Gardens, devoured some delicious Indian food, took a lovely walk in the mountains, and had some great playtime at home. During their visit, Chris "opened" his birthday present- the opportunity to drive four laps around an autocross course in a Ferrari F430. You can see the video below!

Kicking rocks and exploring nature

Hiking (aka riding on shoulders) is exhausting!
