My parents gave us a week in Vail as part of their time-share so we were able to get away just our little family after we'd been away from Daddy for SO long! It was a great and very relaxing trip. The first part of the week was very rainy but we made it outside whenever we could and spent a lot of time at the park.

Grady's new "I'm SO funny" face!

The Betty Ford Alpine Garden in Vail

The very cool park in Vail where we spent a lot of time.

The view from our condo, the river was right below us. We enjoyed taking Grady on walked to the river. He LOVED throwing pine cones and rocks into the water. "One, two, three, throw!" - except he just skipped to "three" repeatedly.

Back at the park

Dinner at Blue Moose Pizza in Lionshead Village. We tried to make it to a BBQ joint for dinner and it was pouring rain (you can't drive anywhere in the villages of Vail). By the time we found the place it was closed, so we happened upon this pizza parlor, it was very tasty and Grady learned a new animal - Moose!

The second half of the week was beautiful weather-wise. We had our friends Ken and Michelle and their little girl, MaKenna come up with us. The kids had a blast and broke in our new double stroller.

29 weeks! Only 11 more to go (or less I hope!)

The fountains in Vail Village - the kids LOVED it! It was a huge hit, we started fully clothed and ended up with just a diaper!

We ended the weekend in Frisco for a BBQ festival. It was a great finish to a very fun-filled week!

At the end of May Grady and I took a road trip with my Aunt Colleen to Montana and Wyoming to visit family. We saw a lot of family and tried to take as many pictures as we could!

This is how the road trip started....but he didn't stay asleep for long!

Spending a day with Grandma Gale and Aunt Lisa before they left on their girl's trip to Florida.

Grady's favorite thing to do at Nana and Papa Close's:

We went to Zoo Montana on a very sunny afternoon. A peacock decided to show Grady his feathers while showing off for a female. He stayed that way for several minutes -- I was nervous Grady would yank on his feathers!

Feeding the goats at the zoo's farm:

Visiting Great Grandma Close

Bo (or "le Bo" as Grady called him) was a good sport for constantly being tackled and hugged to death!

Here we are with my Grandma Close

We spent a very fun day with Grady's Great-Nana Kreitzberg and I forgot my camera! We went to the new play area at the mall, got to see Aunt LeeAnn at work and had a fun lunch at my favorite (MacKenzie River). We also got to have dinner with Papa Kreitzberg and Grandpa Jeff too. Grandpa Jeff took Grady to Rose Park one morning and played at the playground. Grady sure enjoyed calling all the 'Papas' by name and all the playing!


Great Grandma and Grandpa Barta made lunch for us one day and Grady had a blast playing with Grandpa.

Hanging out at Nana and Papa Close's

Grady spent a lot of time with Papa in the yard shoveling gravel, taking wheel barrow rides, lawn mower rides and throwing the ball for Bo.

We were able to stay in Billings an extra day so we could spend more time with Grandma Gale, Grandpa Jeff, Aunt Lisa & Uncle Cliff.

Nana Close drove us back to Colorado and stayed with us for awhile to work on baby k#2's bedding and hang out in Colorado. She even treated Grady to ice cream! He's a fan :)
