Sad Goodbyes and Happy Hellos!

Yesterday Matt's mom left for home, and today Matt's Dad, Debbie, and Ana arrived!

While Matt's mom was here she happily volunteered to babysit Jack for the night so that Matt and I could ski for two days and spend a night in the mountains. So off we went to Silverthorne and spent two wonderful days skiing at A-Basin, with a great date night together. Matt and I both ended up with our first serious goggle tans and sore legs since Jack was born.

We then had almost 24 hours between Matt's mom taking off and Matt's dad landing, and now we are excited to spend a long weekend with them!

Boulder Tulips

Today we went to Boulder to see the Tulips in bloom. They were beautiful and Jackson loved looking at all of the beautiful colors. Afterwards we stopped for ice cream and Jack couldn't stay awake any longer!

Playground with Grandma

Matt's mom got here on Weds. to stay with us for a week. It started with a trip to the playground. Here are some of the pics!

3 Years Ago Today!

On this day exactly three years ago Matt and I met! These are a few of the pictures from our first month together! I don't think that anyone predicted that in 3 years we would fall in love, graduate college, get engaged, get married, move to Denver, and have a baby! Who knows what's in store for the next three years!

Mr. Cute but not so Innocent!

Every Tuesday afternoon I have the day off of work and get together with some friends from church for playgroup. Today it was 75 and sunny so we met at a playground and enjoyed the weather. As you can see Jack and his little pal Burke can really get into it, and they are both pretty vicious. I'm sure that they are going to end up being pals, but for now his mom and I just spend our time protecting them from each other!

Cheap Entertainment!

Today I went to upload pictures for the camera, and realized that I still had pictures from Florida left on the camera. These were a few from when we had a few hours to kill at the Atlanta airport. It turns out an empty water bottle is the best entertainment for an antsy little boy!

First Tooth, First Ear Infection

It's official, our baby finally has his first tooth! Well... it's actually just a sharp little point on his front bottom left gum, but's it's a start. Along with his first tooth he's got his first ear infection as well. Needless to say it hasbeen a difficult week. He has had ANOTHER cold for about a week, and yesterday he stopped eating so Matt brought him to the doctor, and the doctor said its a bad ear infection in his left ear. The reason that he wouldn't eat is because the suction on the bottle would build up too much pressure in his ear. So now he's on antibiotics, and drops as a pain killer and he is doing much better.

Matt and I are doing good, we're working on figuring out all of plans for the rest of the year, some of the things that are in the works are: Marquette for Timmy and Libby's wedding, a trip to Denver for my sister, Matt's mom, and Matt's dad, some time in MN in June for Jack and I (Matt can't get the time off of work to come with us), Jack's 1st birthday celebration in Denve (details to come), a Whitewater rafting trip in CO, a trip to Jamaica with my family, a potential summer softball team with our Bible Study, an possibly more! We have been invited to 7 weddings this summer, none of which are in CO, and we are struggling with how to decide which ones to go to. One is in CO (that one's easy), one is in Marquette and Matt is a groomsmen (that makes that one easy also), two are in downstate MI, one is in Seattle, one is in Texas, one is in Minneapolis. The hardest part is that every single one of them came to our wedding! I wish our budget and time would allow for all of them, but there are going to be some tough decisions to be made.

Well, I'm off to get some stuff done now that Jack is finally sleeping!
