Denver trip 2011

Mid-June we flew back to Denver to visit my family. It was hard on little Alex since he is more aware of his surroundings now, but once he got used to things he had fun playing with everyone and especially loved the swing in my parents backyard.  I now realize how important routines are to a toddlers sense of security, and how scary it must be to travel and to sleep in new places.  My wonderful parents took great care of us though and things went as smoothly as possible.  Thanks for everything guys!  We love you lots! 

Dinner at Casa Bonita.  The food is horrible (except for the all-you-can-eat sopapillas!), but the entertainment is great.  You can dine near a waterfall and watch cliff divers, mariachi bands, and various comedy skits.  They also have a puppet show and other activities for kids.

Bobby's girlfriend Ericca cut little Alex's hair since it was looking pretty shaggy.

We did a combined 2nd birthday party/Father’s Day celebration with the extended family on Sunday.  It was great to see everyone, and they enjoyed meeting Mary.

Since we were in Denver for Father's Day, we celebrated at home a week earlier with dinner, dessert, and presents!  Here are a few pics of that and of Alex's b-day from last month:

Ok, back to the Denver trip:

A few pics from our visit with the Neuenschwander family.  Jenna had fun holding and playing with Mary.

Yikes!  Her eczema looks really bad in this picture.

The plane ride there.  We are so glad little Alex had his own seat (thanks Mom and Dad!).  He was a bit nervous when the windows were open, but did well overall.  The ride home was more challenging , as he started screaming as soon as we got on the plane.  Luckily, he fell asleep soon after and slept most of the way home.
