Andy's Birthday

My little brother turned 22 in August. This is our family's classic party shot, around the kitchen table. My other brother Ty was in town (well in Pueblo - - for IFS training before he goes to pilot training) with his wife Makamae, and Dan's parents were visiting from Rexburg. The cute girl next to Andy is his girlfriend April. We love April, she is lovely girl!

I don't know what was up with my camera, makes the pictures look yellow. This is another one of Andy and April.

This is another of our family's classic photo shots...the stair shot. I think this is one of the funniest pictures ever! April brought her dog Jax then with my parent's dog Maizey and Andy's/my parent's dog Sage and our little Brindi, pretty impressive we could get them to stay put long enough to snap a few pictures. My favorite is can barely see is head, I just imagine what he was thinking...WHY are we doing this? Anyway, Happy Birthday Andy! I am pretty sure I still owe you a present...maybe a pair of new shoes...since those soles are finished!

2nd annual

Welcome to Dan's parents to Colorado Springs again for the 2nd annual trip! See how cute Dan's dimple is :) After we picked them up from DIA we headed over to Boulder and ate at Chipotle - Blaine and Rita's first trip there!

We ate mexican food twice that day...Amanda's Fonda in Manitou Springs for dinner. It's the best! Seriously, if you come visit us, we will take you there! In the picture with Blaine and Rita are Dan's aunt Cheryl and cousin Scott who just got back from his year long tour in Iraq.

We took Brindi with us on a hike. We hiked the Palmer Trail, it is one of our favorites! If you come visit us we will take you there too :)
Blaine and Rita are so adventurous!

Giving Brindi a drink of water. She is such a good dog and she loves hiking! Good, because we are going to do a lot of it over the next years!

Looking forward to next year!!
