I'm a blogging SLACKER!!

Almost three weeks have passed since the kiddo's had Spring Break and I'm just getting around to posting about it! What a terrible excuse for a blogger I am!! Anyway, Scott had a corporate meeting in Denver the week of Spring Break so we decided to make a family vay-cay out of it. Our awesome friends from dental school graciously offered their house to us and we took them up on it. Mike gave up his "man cave" for four whole nights so we would have a place to sleep!! What a guy! We went to the Denver Zoo the first day we were there and it was awesome! We were like the only people in the whole place, the weather was perfect, and the Millward's are just way too fun to hang out with! One little down-fall; I forgot my camera! Does that sound familiar? When do I remember it? I have to thank Lindsay for taking all these pictures of my family and then burning a CD for me so I could have them! You are the best!! Here are a few pics, and sorry for the overload, there were too many cute ones!!

Our awesome friends, and most gracious hosts- The Millwards, Lindsay, Braelyn, Maddox, and Mike. Thanks guys, you are the best!!

This is our family on the first day of our fun vacation! We had such a blast!

We were way too lazy to keep getting Kaylen out and back in the stroller, so Scott just lifted it up with her in it so she could get a better look at the animals!!

Just the girly's!!

Jayden and a peacock. He wanted to touch it so bad but his mean, old mom wouldn't let him. I was afraid it might attack!!

I'm a hippopotamus and I got kiddo's on my back!!

All the kids (minus Maddox) on the ox and wagon. Westward, ho!!

The kids were amazed by this gorilla. It just kept staring at them. This was the one animal that Mase couldn't wait to see!! There is also a really funny story about the gorilla and me but it's too racy to post on a family blog! So, if you want to hear it, you'll have to ask me in person!!

On Thursday, we went to this awesome place called Amazing Jake's. It is like 95,000 square feet of fun...arcades, laser tag, rides, mini golf, go-karts, etc. and they also have a buffet which we had for lunch and wasn't too bad! It was awesome because the schools in Denver weren't on Spring Break so we were about the only ones in the whole place!! No lines, no crowds, just lots of fun with great friends!!

Masen, Braelyn, and Braedy.

Jay and Kay Rae on the train.

Brae and Mase on the Slime Buckets, a ride similar to the Tea Cups in Disneyland.

The two Brae's on the Slime Buckets!!

Our little biker chick! She loved this thing! We could not get her off of it!

You guys better not be laughing!! This is me attempting a silly dancing game. I have to say...I was pretty dang good!!

Jay-D and Bug on the Go Karts.

Scott and Big Ol' on the Go Karts.

This ride was called The Frog Hopper. It just goes way up and then kind of drops you down a little at a time. The kids LOVED it!!

This picture cracks me up for a couple of reasons. One- Lindsay looks like she could be one of the kids and two- Masen looks like he is going to throw up but he loved it and kept going on it over and over and over!!

On Friday, we just hung out around the house for most of the day. Scott took our kids and Braelyn to the park that is right by their house, and they had fun exploring the field in their backyard. We also took Jayden, Braedy, Masen, and Braelyn to see Hotel for Dogs. Everyone loved it except for Braelyn and me. We were buddies during the movie, we kept each other entertained until it was over. Then, that night, we left all the kiddo's home and went to Rodizio Grill. AWESOME!!!! It was so yummy!

We had such a blast! The entire way home my kids kept talking about how much fun they had and how we need to go to Denver more often! So, get ready for more invasions of the man cave!! Thanks, Millward's, for an awesome week! We can't wait to come back!!

Hey Brenda,
I can't get over how grown up and CUTE your kids are!! For some reason I think Masen should be so much younger even though I know he is about the same age as Kamryn. It looks like your trip was a BLAST! Very fun pics. I saw your msg on facebook and I don't know what Jon is telling people but I am not on bedrest. Just really LAZY. I have actually had an ok twin pregnancy so I hear so im just hanging in there. I don't think we will every really be ready for them to come!! I am glad we can stay in touch we love you guys!!

We had so much fun having you guys here. Braelyn keeps asking where her cousing Braedy is! I think you need to wear a fanny pack with your camera in it everywhere you go!
