Keri's Trip of Firsts

Matt's cousin Keri who is 17 came from Illinois to spend the last week with us. After asking her a few times, "Have you ever..." and her answering no we dubbed this trip, "Keri's trip of firsts". Some of her first's included:

-Keri's first time setting up a tent (in a hurry with rain on the way!)
-Eating curry, cream cheese wontons, and salmon (not at the same time)
-Enjoying date night during babysitting swap with Matt and I! (minigolf and custard)
-Helping babysit 7 kids during bible study!
-Riding a chairlift (overlooking beautiful Steamboat Springs)
-Racing down an alpine slide (where she schooled me)
-Seeing the mountains (Rocky Mountain National Park, Steamboat Springs, and Boulder!)
-Flying alone
-Tubing down a river (and seeing a snake in the water!)
-Taking care of a baby (she was VERY helpful with Jackson)
-Sharing a bedroom with a baby! (sorry Keri!)
-Seeing elk
-Drinking Fresca (can you believe that? It's my favorite pop!)

Although we had a hard time prying her away from her cell phone and ipod we had a great time experiencing many of Keri's first's with her!

(if you are curious about the picture of Matt carrying the tent frame it is due to the screen tent being mutilated in the wind and then being finished off by Matt with a rubber mallet out of frustration... let's just say the screen tent didn't come home with us!)
