Mid-Winter Vaca to Colorado

I think when most people skip town in the dead of winter they head to some place warm. Nope, we went for the exact same climate. Cold and snowy! Honestly, we were overdue to visit Jeremy's folks and February was just the best time to do it.

We snuck in lunch before our flight and I had to take a picture. Charley ate all 9 inches of a King David hot dog (minus the bun) and french fries, and some fruit snacks on the plane. I thought for sure he might puke.

(Btw, when your baby eats this much your mind automatically thinks of the next day's diaper change. Oh the horror.)

Charley on the plane, not exactly an angel. He wasn't happy that he had to sit buckled into his seat for takeoff and landing, and on the return flight when he was tired and wanting to nap....we are just lucky the other passengers didn't throw him overboard. He finally made himself a little nest on the floor with his feet sticking out into the aisle and slept for a good long time.

We visited Jeremy's Mom and Step-dad. There was a tea party, cookie making, swimming, watching Bambi on Pop's computer and snow.

.... oh and more playdoh tiaras

...and cuddling

Is Charley naked in this picture?....yes

These two bicker like an old married couple in the kitchen.

Tessa brought her binoculars and was able to spot many things out Mom-mom and Pop's window. That's my adventure girl.

They set up at tent. We were thinking Tessa might sleep there but she was happier to stay right next to her brother's crib.

The snow play didn't last long in Denver...single digits!


Next we went to Grammie and Grampie's. More snow play but much longer as it was in the 40s!
We went to a great sledding hill and everyone joined in. I wish we had a picture of Grammie flying down the hill at warp speeds.

More swimming too. We went to an indoor water park and stayed until we were all pickled. The same place had an indoor playground. Nobody told Jeremy he was supposed to take his shoes off at the door.
We made valentines, did clay art, chased dogs and ate.

Oh and there's always room for more nudity.

Thanks you grandparents, we had a great time!

Sounds like a great time! I love the picture of Jeremy, Tessa and Charley walking in the snow, and you and Tessa in the pool!
