A few of my favorite people :)

My Mom, Aunt Judy, Cousin Rachel, Cousin Sheila and Cousin Christine

Just in case you are wondering:
Judy is my Mom's sister
Sheila and Christine are Judy's daughters
Rachel is Sheila's daughter

I know I haven't been around lately but I have had a lot on my plate and I had to take a hiatus from the computer. My family came out and visited in August and that kept me pretty busy. We had a great time (with the exception of crappy Elitch Gardens, lol). I drove them around in a huge Suburban and we had a blast catching up with one another. We went up to Breckenridge to ride the alpine slide, Silver Plume for a train ride, Denver for Elitch Gardens and Duffy's Cherry Cricket (the best burger joint anywhere-it was featured on Man vs. Food-if you go, get the legendary onion rings) and through Wyoming to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We were amazed at how gorgeous South Dakota was. I imagined it to be pretty drab and boring but that better describes the desolate areas of Wyoming.

School has began for Hayden and he loves it. As a 1st grader, he finally gets to go all day long. His teacher and school are amazing.

Tomorrow we are heading out to Orlando for our 2 day stay at the Wilderness Lodge and then our 7 day Disney cruise to the Western Caribbean. I cannot wait!! We are going to have such a blast. What makes it even better is sharing the fun with our best friends, the Barnes'. They are meeting us down there. I look forward to sharing pics and stories when I get back. Hopefully I will be recovered from my long blog hiatus and will be able to jump right back in. Our bags are packed, the house sitter is taken care of, the car is gassed up and we are ready to roll out at 5am tomorrow morning. I hope you all have a great week as I know we will!
