Where did the time go!?!?

Happy Sunday! Whoa-did I just say Sunday? I mean for real?!? And at that it is already Sunday afternoon…..Schnikees! Where did this week go? We had a lot of family in town this past week, and we enjoyed every minute of but it kept us very busy! We made the comment at some point, we’ve had more people over to visit us in the last week, than we did the 3 years we lived in our house! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My cousin Keith, wife Katie and daughter Erin (7 months) stayed with us from Saturday through Tuesday! It was so much fun to have a little baby hanging around the apartment. ย She is such a fun and cute baby-with the biggest bluest eyes!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ AM I a little baby crazy? I guess that tends to happen occasionally! We spent our time splashing around in our pool, taking morning walks, enjoying dinner, a Cubs/Rockies baseball game and then going to the top of Mount Evans!

Telli enjoyed her time as well on the top of the mountain! Her nose was sniffing out all the new smells! I saw some Mountain Goats by the bathrooms, they were just chillin’ on the rocks, unfortunately I didn’t have my camera on me to catch them…. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

At the top of all the 14,xxx foot mountains in Colorado they have the medal plaques at the top of the summit! I tried to get Telli to pose for it, but she didn’t want the picture.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ She also didn’t want to be in the picture below….

We loved our time together and I feel so blessed they wanted to come spend a couple days on their trip with us!

Then on Monday, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law came into town for his work! It was perfect, they were able to stay in a hotel right down the street and came over for some pool time, another Rockies game and some good food and beer. Oh and just FYI, I also went to a Rockies game on Wednesday night for work! That is 3 baseball games for this girl in 4 days!!!

You have to look at the beer I drank! I was quite hesitant at first, but figured, why not?!?! And it actually tasted it really good!

I was so happy when they wanted to go to Beau Joe’s! It is some of the best pizza in Colorado…..very unhealthy, but very delicious! They offer the honey to dip your extra crust in at the end! There is nothing else that tastes this good!!!

Needless to say, our apartment is a disaster, cleaning needs to be done, laundry needs to be folded and food needs to be prepped for the week. I am thrilled that we are back to eating normal healthy food (I think my body likes it too!)…but now it’s back to the cleaning on Sunday…..

Oh, and I forgot to mention one little thing…..did you ever know that the ABC’s song and Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star are to the same tune? Our pastor mentioned it to us this morning in church (of course non-shallantly during the sermon) but it made me take my mind off the message so that I could sing both in my head! What do ya know!!! It’s crazy! Are there any other songs like that I should know about?

Have a great week!
