Here's "Boy" flaunting his beads at Molly's house.
On our last morning, we walked around downtown Manitou Springs. Steve has fond memories of the Penny Arcade, so we had to stop by there...although now it's the .25 - .75 arcade!
They have every kid's ride-on toy ever made, so Colby of course had to sit on every car and truck there. Thankfully he preferred them to not be moving!

The kids (all 13 of them!) had lots of fun with the water toys & pools and the adults enjoyed the Qdoba bar. Mostly Steve enjoyed the Qdoba bar...I think he got cut off after going back for 7ths!
See, I WAS there!

Sniff, sniff...he'll be off to college any day now...

On another note, he also peed on the potty for the first time yesterday! We're not training yet, but for the past 6 months or so he's loved just sitting on it. He was soooo proud of himself yesterday, he just smiled ear to ear and kept pointing at the yellow potty.

Jamie, Josh and Grandpa fishing...surprisingly enough, Jamie loved it! Although neither she nor Josh would try the Trout they caught and cooked...
Just the requisite cute Colby pic...
Another great canoe shot...
Okay, it's not great footage and it might make you a little dizzy...but had to post it b/c I'm so proud that we figured out how to use and download videos from our digital camera!

I'm not too sure about this??
On Kelly's birthday we went to Red Robin(my first time going it was good) and so when it was time to leave the people came out to sing happy birthday(Kelly wasn't too happy) but anyway Kelly got a free ice cream and Colby loved it haha!!
yummm!!! Colby enjoyed the bathroom lol!
Olivia and I one night decided to cook dinner for Kelly - well to make a long story short it was a messy meal but was delicious in the end!
We also got like 10 free tickets to the Rockies game so I was aloud to invite a friend her name is Olivia! She lives across the street from Kelly and it was a blast!
Kelly's friend Kristine needed to barrow some of Colby's toys and this toy was too small for Colby. But he was determined to fit it was funny!
One day we went golfing, not the little mini golf, the real deal golf. Me and Colby enjoyed riding in the golf cart and drinking water. We had a blast even though I only hit the ball once. It was really fun!!!!

In case you don't recognize the significance of the red hourglass on this spider (which I wouldn't have before now), this is a picture of a black widow spider. It's the most venomous of all spiders...and its venom is 15x more potent than that of a rattlesnake.
This cute little guy (or gal) made a nice home for himself in the window well of our basement. (Which was quite a treat for our niece who is currently staying down there!) Thankfully he was on the outside of the window, but actually right below Colby's sandbox...eek! Steve managed to take care of the situation, although getting down into the window well was a little tricky. (Unfortunately I don't have a picture of him in my elbow-length rose garden gloves; fly swatter and vacuum in hand!)

One day we drove down to Great Sand Dunes National Park. Seeing the dunes in the middle of all the mountains is pretty amazing! They are a lot harder to climb than they look, and we all decided we'd last about 2 days in the Sahara!
Yup, they are steep!
But Colby had a lot of fun sliding down them!
The local bear at our cabin...
Another day we went on a hike...it was reviewed as "easy", but turned out to be over 2 miles of straight up hiking! We were about to quit, but Jamie made us keep going...and we're glad we did b/c the lake and snow at the top were beautiful!
Crossing the river...
