This weekend was very exciting. It was Jason's first camping trip and he Loved it!!! From the time we got there he had a smile on his face. We were able to meet my aunt Betsy, uncle kevin, their kids, my granny, elizabeth and her kids up there. We went to Pike National Forest. It was so beautiful. The drive was really amazing. I have a little bit of a fear driving in the mountains like that but the scenery on the way to the campsite was awesome! Luckily it was still light out when we got there so we set up our tent and enjoyed our time just relaxing. It is so nice to get away from the city chaos and go up to the mountains where all you can do it relax and enjoy nature.

I had every intension of setting up the tent but i think about 5 seconds after i had layed it out Brad and my aunt Elizabeth took over and finished it :-)
This is when we just arrived and this is what Jason looked like till the minute he fell asleep. He just loved camping. Unfortunately he did not sleep great along with everyone else we went camping with but he really enjoyed the time when he was awake. So our first camping experience with Jason was a success and we will defintely be doing it again soon!!
This week me and Jason went down to Colorado Springs to hang out with my family. We went to Garden of the Gods and had a picnic and walked around a little too look at all pretty mountains and red rock. It was a lot of fun to get out and enjoy nature.

This past weekend we had a lot of fun. We got to go down to Colorado Springs to the Pikes peak or Bust Rodeo. It was a lot of fun to go and spend time with family and watch all the cool cowboys!
This is a picture of my beautiful Aunt Betsy. She sang the National Anthem before the Rodeo started. She did a wonderful job and it was really neat because two fighter planes flew over while she was singing. Very cool!
Here is Jason and Brad with the armadillo.

We also went to cherry creek state park with our friends Todd and Melissa. It was fun to get out and grill some yummy steaks!

Jason has so much fun with Melissa and Todd. We are lucky to have good friends that help us out a lot with Jason.
Last week we took a little vaca to Indiana. It was so great to see my family and to have a whole week with Brad! While we were there we got the kids pictures taken with Nana and Pappy. And we also took some family pictures. They turned out really well. Jason was such a trooper he was so tired but still gave some great smiles!
