Colorado Springs Part 2 - Garden of the Gods

On Friday we went to Garden of the Gods. It's a place within the Rockies with lots of giant rock formations. We didn't stop at the Nature center, so I don't really know any of the geological stuff about the rocks, but they sure were pretty to look at! To give an idea of the size, here's a picture of Dustin and Fischer in front of one of them: And me with Fischer: This is the beginning of the rock we were standing in front of...I couldn't get the whole thing in the picture. A pretty scene out the car windshield: A view of Pike's Peak from the Garden. This is Balancing Rock...I think you can tell how it got it's name. The four of us are standing in front: Fischer being cute :) Dustin took Fischer for a walk up the "mountain" by Balancing Rock...Fischer took off climbing as fast as he could...Dustin had to rush to catch up! Waving at me after they finally came back down: Daddy and Fischer going to get an up-close look. A view of some of the Rocks from afar, with Pike's Peak in the background:

Colorado Springs Part 1

Dustin was sent to Colorado Springs the second week of March for business...this time, Fischer, Owen and I tagged along. During the week I took the boys to little places to play, like Focus on the Family and the play area inside the mall. Then we stayed Friday and Saturday to have some fun with daddy too (those pics to come later). Here's the first set of pictures:

Playing in the "Adventures In Odyssey" kids stuff in the basement at Focus on the Family.


Silly Fischer...he doesn't know he's in a girl's spot :)


This is the best shot I got of Fischer at the airplane...with another boy picking his nose in front...Fischer wouldn't cooperate for this pic :)


His favorite thing to do while daddy was at work or feeling sick was to play in the HUGE play area at the mall...


...and to ride the Kiddie Coaster.


The view of Pike's Peak from our hotel parking lot (but not our room, we faced the pool).


Playing in the sand pit at Mr. Bigg's Family Fun Center.


Owen saying, "Don't take my picture!"


Shooting foam balls from the Pirate Ship.

Bad to the Bone

Monster Jam is coming to town, and the Grave Digger made an appearance at Advanced Auto Parts Thursday...so we HAD to take Fischer to see, of course.



If you can't see it, that is Fischer's Grave Digger he is rolling inside the real Grave Digger's tire.

Catching Up Part 8 - January 2011

Since Christmas, birthdays, and family visits were over, there are much fewer pictures from January...I can get the highlights all in one post! Here they are:

Fischer enjoying his new rocking horse from MawMaw and PawPaw Henry.


Funny face!


Owen with Grandpa Jack.


Chillin' with daddy :)


Fischer wanted to feed baby Owen...I let him give him the last few sips.


Matching puppies :)


First shots...ouch!


My sweet babies!

Owen Loves to Sing!

With the exception of when he first notices the camera, Owen starts to sing with me every time I sing :)
