My trip to Colorado and Nebraska

In late June, I took a trip to Colorado and Nebraska to see my family and go to my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary party. It was great to see everyone, especially my fun bouncy niece Kayla. It had been 3 months since I'd seen her, and boy what a change. She developed such a fun personality! She loves to be constantly moving, always flailing her arms and legs, too fun.

A little more of Ben's Birthday

Forgot to post these pictures from Ben's birthday. After all the fun at home, we ventured out to Roadrunner's go-kart track. Man was that fun! After two runs of all of us driving, the last run was for Andy and Ben.

Ready at the starting line

When we came home, we found Cubby playing dress up :)

Can you say ROCKETSHIP???? (Kevin and Spring?)

After a house robbery episode where the robbers/punks decided to take only Lisa's bike, a shopping trip was taken on by the two of us. Low and behold, a bike yelled our names from craigslist! A sweet 2006 Specialized Stumpjumper. Super light, it almost floats away if you're not sitting on it! :)
We're gonna race tomorrow......stay tuned for the winner.

Upgrade to disc brakes have already been purchased and FEDEXED to us.....look for lisa on a trail near you, she'll be able to do a state a day.

Happy Birthday Ben!

Ben's birthday was yesterday...had a few friends over and had a blast. Did some Mooses Tooth pizza and beer, blueberry muffins and blueberry sour cream cake, some present opening, a Cornhole tournament (see below), some Go-Karts, some poker, and some darts. Killer day.

Ben ripping into his Hello Kitty present from Kevin and Laura....

Turns out it was awesome clay poker chips! Thanks Kevin and Laura!

In case ya didn't know, Ben's a HUGE fan of Superman.....I found an awesome key to make it into his house key :)

The dogs had fun with the present wrapping as well

Laura made a nice sign in the driveway for Ben to see when he came home from work :)

Enjoying a nice frosty glass of Alpenglow Amber beer....and Laura's face :)

Birthday Cont'd.

What birthday is complete without a good game of Cornhole?!?!?!? (AKA - bean bags.) We had a small tournament....Kevin and Ben won.

Ben just made a "cornhole" - a bag in the hole. Whe came up with this name?!?!?!? Oh well, fun anyway.
