…like…makes my little man become the girl from the exorcist and the vomit scene. Twice. Yum. Welcome to Colorado. 🙂 No, seriously, that was the only hiccup in the entire trip. Lucas was a dream road warrior as his Sir pointed out. The ride there was uneventful, a few potty stops for the adults and so little man could stretch his legs. A few shots of L in route to see his Tita. Got the sign welcoming us to CO, however, L couldn’t see it through his eyelids.
Heeellllooo Hays! Or the shell station at Hays. These fingers or a chupi are in almost every pic, due to the fact that little man “needed” to chew on something..all the time. The frog kinda looks like he is making goo-goo eyes at L, huh? Welcome to Colorado! Action shot. Amazing. No prairie dogs or twine stops because we were on a mission to see Tita and the gang. 10 hours later, we made it and L was oh so happy to be out of his seat. We mostly hung out with family and L got to meet new family and get loved on. I hardly saw the kid. A big thanks to Auntie Georgia, Uncle Jay, Camille, Cory, Stacia and Jason and all kiddos for their hospitality, baby stuff and love. L got to be in his first bar (a Fox and Hound for lunch, no drinks. Did you know they DON’T have a changing station in their potties? Shocking!) He also had sushi and was serenaded by a slightly repetitive band in Belmar. Margaritaville in a Spanish accent…odd. We jacked around in Sur La Table and shopped, shopped and shopped for presents for Bud and Baby X. Pics and video from those events.
Nana, Little Emma, Tita, and Auntie Gia at Wasabi.. before Tita thought the wasabi was avocado and ate a hunk. Still funny. Sir and L listening to the band at Wasabi. While shopping at Belmar, we got to spend a little time with a fabulous candidate for the Colorado State Representative Seat. We are so proud of our Camille. She will do an excellent job. L was lucky enough to get a kiss from the candidate. Some proud supporters of Camille. We also spent some time in the fountains at Belmar…L’s pants were a bit too gangster for the fountain. Oh well. Sunday, we spent the day with the fam at Jason, Stacia, Grant & Clare’s house. That family is so cute. Grant speaks with the voice like James Earl Jones with manners and Clare-bear is so sweet. Pics of sweet Harper and Grant loving on L. Harper and Clare jumping on the cool trampoline. Monday, we said our goodbye’s. Harper will probably kill me for posting this pic when she is like 16, but for now…it is totally Harp. Love it.
This video is sideways, sorry. But I love the subjects in it so much, I just couldn’t not post it. My gram loving on my baby. Makes me tear up thinking about how lucky L is to be a part of this wonderful family.
Almost makes up for the exorcist vomit…almost.
Have a great week.
