It's been another lovely weekend here in sunny Colorado! Yesterday we took a drive up into the mountains with some families from our church. We stopped at the most yummy donut shop (well sort of... VG's is still the best donut shop in the world. :) Then we caravaned through the mountains to this adorable little town called Cripple Creek. And on the drive we say some of the most gorgeous Fall leaves that I think I have ever seen. My pictures hardly capture how magnificent it was, but that's ok... the memory of my first Fall in CO will always be marked by the beauty of the leaves that covered the vast mountains. :)
Here are my kiddos enjoying their donuts...
I tried to get a picture of this really cute church in the middle of town as we were driving but I pretty much got a picture of the giant tree in front of the church. As we were driving down into the town it reminded me so much of a place that Joey and I visited in Germany nearly seven years ago. I loved the view in Germany and I loved the view this weekend!
We stopped in the town at a park and had a picnic lunch. Below are all the friends that we spent our day with...
Jed is seriously one of our easiest babies. Most of the time he just hangs out. He's super mellow... we're so blessed!!
This is our new little friend Lindley... Isn't she seriously cute? I just loved this picture of her and wanted to put it on our blog.:)
And that was that...
So today, we just hung out around the house... I did loads and loads of laundry, and tried but filed at making homemade spaghetti sauce with homemade meatballs. All my meatballs completely fell apart once I put them into the sauce. It still tasted ok but it was more like extremely meaty, kinda salty sauce... oh well. :)
We watched a lot of football, the kids played outside all afternoon. I opened all the windows and enjoyed the warm breeze. I am soaking up the warmth knowing that winter is just around the corner. :)
It was another lovely weekend.
