To the top

Backing way up here, before all the July 4th festivities we had a few days of fun family time while Kenny was with us in Colorado. One day we went over to Vail with my brother's family and spent time at the top of the mountain.

Gondola Ride




Such a great view!

Trying out the balance cords




It was chilly up there, I'm glad I brought their rain coats

Waiting for the Bunjee Trampoline

And he's off


For the first time ever, Andrew decided he was ready for a try.
Love this smile!

Adam getting major air

Getting instructions

A little apprehensive


Exhilarated

Whoa Mom you are getting further away!

Down Down Down the mountain









These pictures aren't great but I had to capture this moment. Andrew riding a bike for the first time ever!

Even with the training wheels, this was quite a feat for him on so many levels. He had been terrified of getting on because he felt very unstable and shaky. It was very hard for him to push the pedals all the way around. But Andrew was so determined and he accomplished his goal to pedal the big boy bike all the way around the driveway.

I'm so proud of him! Maybe we'll have to get them bikes for their next birthday.

Do the gondolas have plexiglass around them or are they "open air"? Congrats Andrew for doing the trampoline and riding a bike! AWESOME!!!

Definitely thick plexiglass or we wouldn't have let the kids stand up on the seats like that or we probably would have not even gotten on, Kenny is terrified of heights!

Loved looking at the pics! Bestest ones...Andrew riding the bike!
Still here praying!!!!!!!!
Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Such great pictures - makes me want to vacation in Colorado!

I am just catching up on your blog and read your post about your last IVF cycle. I can only imagine the heartbreak you found in that negative. We still struggle with the decision to have more kids (we also have snowbabies) and I wish you the best in your next cycle if you decide to proceed. It is such an emotional experience.
