We Made It!!!

We made it to and from Grand Junction and we all survived! It turns out Marissa is a pretty good traveler. We only stopped about three times each way and she never really got grumpy. We had a blast visiting family. We had not all been together like that since before I was pregnant! (Of course not ALL of us were there though.) Mom and Larry live in a beautiful subdivision called Glade Park. It is actually above Colorado National Monument. As we were driving up to their house Friday evening I kept thinking to myself, "they live here ?!? Wow!" We had two fun-filled days and it was a great experience for Marissa.

PaPa letting Marissa meet Pearl the Puppy

The set up in our room worked out quite nicely

Marissa meeting a new friend, Garrett. He and his parents are my parent's neighbors.

They had a really fun time playing together. Two blonde peas in a pod!


Unfortunately for my brother Brian, she did NOT like his blonde wig!

Trying to win the affections of a little girl is exhausting!

Bald Uncle Brian is much better!!
