Trip to Denver (more pics)

Grace hanging out with her second cousin, Carter. He is reading to her--- he is 4 years old... and he can read just about anything you put in front of him!! He is so smart, and so fun! The kiddos hanging out in the hotel room. Grace so loved hanging out with Carter. They were super duper cute together.

Grace looking at my first cousin Jake.

Casa Bonita... Drew's dream came true. Amy's dad calls it Kaka don't eat it.

Lilia and Grace in a restaurant in downtown Denver.

The Adkins with Gracie girl. Lee and Amy were so awesome. It was the first time I met Lee, and they have been married for nine years!!! Craziness!

The Dads and girls in Downtown Denver. We just went and walked around for a little bit- and decided we would rather hang out in downtown Littleton. I am so glad we went though, it was neat to see the city I was born in again!

Grace loved Lilia's dog, Leo.

Sweetie Pie Lilia.

Grace, "Hmmm... what else should I make for dinner?"

Some Buffalo on the side of the road... Grace loved that the bird was sitting on the buffalo!

Colorado with family

I want to say thank you to all of my friends and family for being so supportive to me during this time. My grandmother lived a full long life, and to know she is reunited with my grandfather brings such a good feeling to me and my family.

Of course the reason for the visit to Colorado was sad, but it was so wonderful to be with family. It has been so long since I have been with so many people from my side of the family. I love each of you so very very much.
My mom's first cousin Pauline attended, as well as her son Gene who is my second cousin. ( Is that right, Gene? So Pauline is my first cousin once removed? ) ANYWAY- MY COUSINS! MY FAMILY: My Uncle Larry, mom's brother, Mom, Pauline, John (another of mom's first cousins) and Uncle Terry, mom's other brother:
My Aunt Sharon, Uncle Terry ( mom's brother ) Amber (Nathan's wife) Nathan and Simone ( my cousins) :
Uncle Larry with his daughters ( my cousins) Laura on the left- her husband Kyle behind... and their two children Carter and Chase. Carrie on the right with her son Max. (Missed you Scott, Linda, Danylle, and Chad! )

My family- lightening the mood a little. My brother, Jeremiah, Mom, me, and Grace. Kotie, Dad, and Drew behind. We missed you Hailey and Sara!

My Uncle John ( Dad's brother ) Aunt Brenda, Cousins Justin, Jerad, Brandon, and Jake.

What is that you said, Grace?
I will post more pictures of Colorado and Amy and her family soon. Thank you Amy, Lee, and Lilia for letting us stay with you and for being so incredibly awesome.

Sara's birthday party!
