We enjoyed another good but busy weekend. The kids have one more full week off before school starts. Friday night we went the Young's house for Vic's birthday bash. Saturday morning we got up bright and early for the Sue Dinapoli Ovarian Cancer 3 K walk/5K run. Our friend Laura organized the race in honor of her mother who passed away due to ovarian cancer. We were planning on leisurely walking as a family but the kids had different plans and we all ended up running. Scott and I were totally impressed with all three kiddos running a 3K. That's a long way for little legs :) Saturday afternoon, Scott, Mason and I headed to Denver for yet another parenting class. If you remember we didn't get a chance to finish all our classes before traveling to China so now we are trying to get those classes out of the way. We have one more to go, Yah! While we were in Denver, Sam, Alice and Paige were hanging at the pool with the Young's. Sunday was just as busy with church in the morning, a nice hike through Cheyenne Mt. State Park in the afternoon and then ending the day with dinner and swimming at the pool. I would write more but who are we kidding, you (and by you, I mean grandma) just want the pictures. I had fun snapping pics of the kids on the hike today. They all wore their Camelbacks and had a lot of fun jumping off rocks and looking for lizards.

On your mark, get set.....Go!

Where the Wild Things Are.

It is always good to stay hydrated.

It doesn't get any prettier than this!

Sam always makes sure we are on the right trail.

Scott signing onto the trail log.

We saw LOTS of these. Sam actually got poked but just into the toe of his shoe, thankfully.

We also saw TONS of these. Wildflowers and sunflowers in abundance.

Alice was checking out a hole in this tree. We saw a couple of bird nests in tree holes, so she was just making sure we didn't miss anything.

Mason enjoying the hike, as usual.

I hope you all had a great weekend too! Everyone, except me, is sleeping and I am thinking that is a pretty good idea so....
Good Night!
