Last week we all took a trip to Denver, not only to celebrate my mom’s oldest brother’s birthday but also to see a Colorado Rockies game. Ken has talked about taking the boys to see a Rockies game for quite awhile. Since we were planning a trip already, my parent’s gave him tickets to the game for his birthday this past May. This was the first MLB game that my mom, sister and all the boys had ever been to and the game was awesome. Ricky said the only thing he wanted to see was a home run by the Rockies and a for the Rockies to catch a home run hit over the fence. Wouldn’t you know it, the Rockies hit 2 home runs and they made an amazing out, catching the ball over the fence… Ricky was excited.
As we walked to the concessions, someone handed Benny this card advertising Star Wars night at Coors Field in August. Benny was almost as excited about this card as he was his souvenir baseball bat. However, he thought for sure we’d be coming back for Star Wars night and asked over and over again to please go! He didn’t quite understand that we weren’t making another trek to Denver just for Star Wars night. Regardless, he hung on to this post card the whole game!
The boys loved swimming first thing the in the morning and last thing at night.
Swimming is always more fun when your uncle is there to toss you around.
Most of all, the boys had fun playing with their cousins. My aunt and uncle fixed an amazing dinner, set up the slip n’ slide and let our dirty kids soak in their hot tub. The boys were in heaven!
And the main reason we were in town was for my Uncle Ed’s, card playing, poker winning, gambling themed birthday! My cousin’s, Jill and Jeremiah, did a wonderful job hosting in their beautiful yard, had wonderful food and a fun theme complete with personalized poker chips and playing cards.Ed has owned a construction company for years and his cake was just perfect! Wood grain cake with measuring tape letters. Amazing job on the cake by my cousin’s Brandon and Dani.
My mom and 3 of her siblings, (there are four more who couldn’t make it to the party)
Uncle Ed and a portion of his beautiful family.
We had such a wonderful time and were so happy to be able to celebrate with you all.
