Fun with my Family

My sister in Law, Kim had a baby last month and of course my parents couldn't stay away long. They flew here, to Denver for a few days then went to Utah to see the new bambeno, baby Rachael and then flew back to Denver to finish off their time with us!

One of my favorite things about my family visiting is the English food they bring with them. To be honest I have over indulged to the extreme and will be temporarily starving myself until I feel normal again but it was worth it:)

First week: yucky weather. The highlights were:
Visiting the temple with my sister and Dad, Going on a chilly walk, playing games, doing our family video, visiting the dinosaur tracks, Red Rocks, the Capitol and Downtown Denver, having a wonderful dinner at Cheesecake factory with Ben and my family and laughing until it hurt.

Because of the previous bad weather I ordered beautiful weather and it was GLORIOUS!
Second Week highlights were:
A wonderful nature walk were my mum got scared by snakes, I have never seen her run so fast, Visiting the ZOO, silly jumping, getting ice cream in my hair, doing a photo shoot with Beth modeling my prom dress, going to the Geology museum in Golden and having a big dinner with Ben's family and my family it ended with singing around the piano. Ahh, delightful!

Being Silly

Beth the stunner!

I like this quote about families:

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Family time is great!
