Lunch Anyone?

Last week we got to watch Joey Kelly! We had a great time and they loved playing kitchen. I guess this gives Jace a good excuse to cook. They set the table and food out for their families. (I guess Jace gets that from mommy-talking on the phone while doing other things.) I told him we should probably talk on the phone after our guests leave. They both talked to their imaginary friends on it. I love kids imaginations! Jace and Joey seem like they'll be good friends. They play great together!

Happy Labor Day

Looks like Brooke slept through it all!

Some new friends, Andi and Spencer Marshall

Joey crawled up and sat right next to Jace. They are so cute!!

I know I'm a week late, but I now have a chance to update! For Labor Day, we were invited by a family in our ward, the Georges, to Winter Park --- up in the mountains of Colorado. We had a GREAT time. We were able to spend some time with some new couples in the ward and some great families. We ate the most yummy bbq, with a marinade that it is to die for, played in the stream, took a nature hike (i'm pretty sure I instigated when we turned around considering being with child), played games, and just hung out. The day was beautiful--we couldn't have asked for better weather. Someday Heath and I hope to have a cabin....we've both always loved being in the mountains. Jace LOVED it, of course. He got to play with his new friend, Joey and with the Scott family boys. He was content with kitchen toys, a choo choo train track and of course being outside :) We feel so blessed to have been invited and to meet new people and friends. Thank you to everyone that's helped us feel so welcomed and loved.
