Whirlwind trip to Texas

Visit with Jared and Janene.

Spending time with Lexy and Torry- shopping, errands, business, eating, football on T.V., hair appointments, catching up, laughing, staying up late.  What can you say, that's how it goes on a whirlwind weekend with BFF's.  We had way too much to do, so only one child was allowed to join this party.  Thank you to parents (Allred and Hinson) for watching the kids!

At the park in Loveland, Colorado

Sunday picture day

Grandma & Grandpa arrive, and the whole family is together again after 3 years

Grandma & Grandpa arrive at the airport to be greeted by all the
grandkids in their "all red" shirts.  It made everyone who got off their
plane at the airport smile to see all the cute kids waiting.  

Allred boys like to wrestle.... still.  And now the 2nd generation boys want to participate.  Hope no one gets hurt.  

The sweet babies- Ava, Finn, and Damon.

The cousins spent the entire day in the woods building a "fort." 

When night came, they insisted on going back to the fort
to "check on it."

Who can scream louder??

Payton "posing" on the 4-wheeler.

Gag gifts for Grandpa and Grandma.

Cuddlin' cousins.

The babies watch "Baby Einstein" together.  Damon is pretty
impressed with this DVD stuff that he has never seen before.

Out for some exercise in the beautiful Colorado mountains. 

While the Allred girls went shopping and eating- 
The Cheesecake Factory for lunch.

Working (and playing) while getting ready for Grandma & Grandpa to arrive

Cousins mesmerized by "The Chipmunks."

The kids (of all ages) love the 4-wheelers.  

No, this isn't dangerous at all....

Cutie on the swing....

The most exciting find of the day- a great big stick!!

More pictures from the "Creative Fun for Safe and 
Responsible Fathers" manuel.

They did put the helmets on.... afterward.
