I find myself back at home and not sure what to do first. Almost 300 pictures to sort through, 4 huge zucchini to cook up somehow, and fabric calling my name. It's hard to come up with a nice blog post summarizing our trip when the trip was 2 weeks long and we visited with soooo many people!

I'll just give you some of the high lights so I can go make zucchini bread and then maybe a purse or two! Oh, maybe then a quilt! I'm getting ahead of myself aren't I?

I got to meet my little nephew. He's so adorable. Just like his big sister. Here he is with his mama. His quilt and stuffed elephant were well received, of course.

We attended a pirate birthday party! The kids has a blast at this. Who wouldn't?

I got to see my mom and brothers! We went to the museum, Benny's for dinner, Governors Park, and even out for drinks... without the kids, of course.

We got to see my MIL. It's been a while! Yeah, that's a hint Stella...

Hannah got a serious hair cut. She donated her hair to Locks of Love. Completely her idea. Her Aunt Linda who recently went through treatment for breast cancer was very proud of her. And Hannah lost a tooth while we were there so the Tooth Fairy had to remember to make a visit.

Oh, and Estes Park!

Cool and cloudy.

Have you ever seen The Shining? This is the hotel.

Oh, the candy choices...

We also saw a movie and then had lunch and played with friends at Stapleton's Central Park... not even close to the real thing but definitely fun. ;)

Oh, and I got two girls night out. Count 'em, two! Totally awesome. The kids had a sleep over at grandma's one night and my brother baby sat for the other night out to dinner. I wish I could do that more often!

We had a delayed flight home but we entertained ourselves until it was time to go. Moving walkways are way to fun.

I had such a good time. It was wonderful to see everyone. If I didn't put a picture of you up or mention how much fun we had it's only because this blog post is way too long. I loved seeing all of you! Really. We spent time with all of Dan's family, my family and pretty much all of our friends. Phew, lots of fabulous people.

Now, I started this post earlier today and couldn't get back to it. I made the zucchini bread though. The purse pattern and fabric I bought at The Fancy Tiger, well that's next...
