Memorial Day Weekend -- First Road Trip in the MINIVAN :)

Erik took Thursday and Friday off of work and we went to Colorado to visit the family. It was our first road trip in our, yes, van! I feel like I am now officially a MOM! As if two children didn't already make me one. :) It was great, we had more room than to know what to do with and the best part...we could go up those nasty hills on I-80 in the FAST lane! May sound stupid, but both our previous cars let's just say don't have the best power. Sometimes we felt like we could get out and walk up the hill faster. Not anymore man! I even caught Erik saying "I love this van"!

We always love going to visit family in Colorado. And although the weather wasn't as clear and warm as we may have liked, we managed to have a lot of fun anyway. We went to a couple movies, one of which Madalyn and Kambria even came for. We took them to Monsters vs Aliens in 3D. It was hilarious to see them both sitting there with those humango glasses on.

We spent one afternoon at the "Jumpin'" park. This was a blast, both Eliza and I decided we need a place like this in our basements. Madalyn and Kambria could have played here for days. Even us adults got some pretty good free entertainment out of it.

We took a trip to the farm with the kids. Their favorite part was feeding the goats. Those animals are PUSHY and disgusting to feed. They lick the food right out of your hands and leave the thickest, most disgusting film of slim on your hand. But the girls thought it was pretty cool. Let's just say it is a good thing we had hand sanitizer or I would have gone crazy.

Madalyn and Kambria had fun playing dress-up with eachother. Here's a couple of their choice outfits. :)

All three of them were watching the rain outside wishing they had an umbrella.
