vacation {colorado springs}

Before heading to the mountains, we stopped in Colorado Springs to spend some time with our friends Michael and Laura. We love them. We hate that we live so far away though. It has been awesome to see them twice in just three months this year. And we’ve actually seen Laura three times. Baby Tanner has gotten so big. He is a sweetie.
We did lots of hanging out, went to HomeGoods, ate at Chick-fil-A twice, played with the little boys, ate lots of other delicious food (we are still talking about those yummy ribs Michael), and stayed up too late talking and watching movies. I think trips to HomeGoods and Chick-fil-A might become a tradition whenever we visit.
One evening we went to a park near Michael and Laura’s house. The weather was beautiful. I love Colorado. Let’s just say a July evening at the park in Kansas wouldn’t be quite as lovely.
Since Laura and I have been best friends since fifth grade, we are trying really hard to make our sons be best friends…
and pose for cute pictures together…
and act like they really love each other.
Hunter was trying really hard.
We tried one more time.
One more Hunter and Levi picture.
I love how Levi is crying…
and I love how Hunter is looking at Levi like, 
“What is your problem?”

  • Tiffany - I can’t imagine life without Chick-fil-A. I live in GA and we are very fortunate to have them all around. I seriously eat there twice a week. We love it. I don’t think I have ever commented before but I started reading right after Cora passed. She was so precious. I have prayed many, many times for your family. My husband and I have 2 little boys of our own and i can’t begin to imagine what you have been through. God bless you both. I think Levi is sooo adorable. He has the cutest smile. I know he is such a blessing to both of you.ReplyCancel
