Grandpa’s work party

Also in September, my parents invited us to my Dad’s work party that was held at a small amusement park in Golden that claims to be Colorado’s hidden gem. Although it was super hot that day, we thought Miles would enjoy some of the kiddie rides and being with Grandma and Grandpa.

The biggest problem with the day was that we were required to wear a paper bracelet that showed which group we were with. Not a problem for adults, but a big problem for a toddler. They would not let him ride anything unless he had it on. So this is what happened when Chris tried to put it around his ankle (thinking maybe Miles would notice it less) to ride his first carousel.


And then this is what happens when you try to squeeze an adult into a small airplane ride.


And then make him wait whil a mom and daughter in front of him take their sweet time getting on.


But Chris and Grandma were troopers taking Miles on all of his rides. Although her face looks like she is having fun, she said it was actually a really jerky train ride. Hence the tight hold she has on Miles.


Overall a pretty fun day, even if I just pushed the stroller around and took pictures of everyone else.

Hannah’s blessing

So way back in September, Chris blessed Hannah at church with our entire family here. I know, forever ago. Better late than never. And because Live Writer can’t find the draft I started on this forever ago, I’m pretty much copping-out by just posting pictures.

The blessing was beautiful and so was the dress that my mom started when I was pregnant with Miles (not knowing if I would be having a girl or boy). She obviously  put it on hold until I actually needed it. It was worth the wait.
