This is our newest little nephew, Cayden. He's three months old and I just met him. The first day we met, he wasn't too sure about me. I'm pretty sure it was my hair. My hair HATES THE DRY WEATHER and WIND that it had that day, so it looked a little big. After I got my hair under control, me and Cayden got along just great! (He does smile a lot, but my camera has a stupid red light that goes off before it flashes and babies always look like this!)On Friday, when there weren't any basketball games in Denver (there were games on tv, so we were lucky to get Brent out), we went down to "The Springs" (what Colorado-ites call Colorado Springs) and went to the Garden of the Gods. It's a great park with hiking and beautiful red rocks. And the day was GORGEOUS! Not a cloud in the sky!
This is the first view of Garden of the Gods that you see. Isn't it gorgeous? The snowcapped mountain in the background is Pike's Peak. Did you know that Pike's Peak is the most visited mountain in North America and the 2nd most visited mountain in the world? What's the first, you ask? Mt Fuji in Japan. Isn't it amazing what stays in my mind. The name of Jared's school - gone, the most visited mountain in the world - there it is!
If you ever find yourself in "the Springs", you really should stop by the Garden of the Gods. It's free!
It was a gorgeous day, but the wind was blowing. Julie was cold. I cropped this picture the way I did so you could notice the girl behind Julie with crops on. I think she even had flip-flops on. At least Julie had enough clothes on to be warm!
Here we all are in a scrunch picture - my favorite. (Brad, Julie, Brent, me)
Since both Julie and Brent are graduates of Tooele HS, go White Buffaloes, they felt they needed a picture on the bison. Julie said that it wasn't too comfortable. Well, yeah, it is made of metal. :)
And finally, here's me in front of the Denver Temple. I don't know if I've ever seen the Denver Temple, but it was beautiful! After we took this picture, we went running back to the car - it was snowing and windy and really cold. But we did see the temple!
I just wanted to say thank you to Julie for keeping me company. I hope you like the outfit you got and I also hope you will eventually like your phone - I still want one. Thank you so much to Auntie Annie and Uncle Steve for letting us stay with them. They were so nice to deal with our late nights and early mornings. Thanks to Jared and Katie for dinner on Friday. It was great! Thanks to Jared for taking time out of his busy schedule to spend some time with us! Thank you to Cayden for finally deciding that Auntie Ashley wasn't so bad - once I got my hair under control. And thank you to the NCAA Basketball Tournament for giving Brent an excuse to go to Denver!
Anyone want to go to Portland next March??
