I have not had much to blog about lately. Just sitting in a holding pattern waiting for the next move with this whole trach situation. Not much else going on, other than a busy Summer!
I guess I can share pics from the last two weekends. And because I have nothing else to talk about, there will be a lot of pics!
On July 10th, Jeremy, Rissa and I got together with a few of my college girlfriends and went to the Downtown Aquarium in Denver. We had a really good time catching up and we promised we wouldn't wait so long next time to get together.

Together again, minus one
Three of the coolest chicks I know!
This last weekend, we had the pleasure of having my youngest sister come out from Grand Junction. Jeremy and I have not gone to a big concert since before Marissa was born. This used to be one of our favorite things to do together, so when the opportunity came up to go to a big heavy metal festival, we were chomping at the bit to go. Only problem was that my sister, Michelle, who usually watches Marissa, had to work. On a Sunday!! Only the second Sunday she has ever had to work since working at the hospital for the last four years, by the way! Just our luck!
Because I felt that Marissa would fare better all day with someone she is familiar with, I had the bright idea to ask my sister, Katelynn, if she would come out to watch Marissa. She said "yes", so she got here Friday night. Saturday was spent training her, going out to lunch and to see "Eclipse" with her and Michelle, and hanging out with Uncle Nate and the two Aunties in the back yard. Jeremy and I scooted out to Denver for our metal fest Sunday morning. It was a blast! It was a long, hot day with lots of walking and plenty of crowds, but well worth it. Jeremy and I had a great time and got back home at midnight to a sleeping Marissa and a very tired Auntie Katelynn! Thanks again Katelynn, we love you!
Anyway, here are pics of our backyard hijinks.

There's bad intentions behind those eyes...
Can you see it coming?
Ahhhh, it was all about breaking the chalk!
