We celebrated Claire’s 3rd birthday with a fun party at our house and a week-long visit by Grandma Judy. Highlights included a rented bouncy house, a gaggle of friends young and old filling our backyard, Claire enjoying her new big girl bed, and finally opening Grandma’s presents.

We made our bi-annual trip to Estes Park, Colorado in June to join Grandpa Jack and Grandma Sharon for a week at the YMCA of the Rockies. We enjoyed high mountain air, lots of hiking and fun camp activities, plus a great time with Aunt Laura, Uncle Rob and cousin Will. Highlights included a hike around Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, a hayride to a marshmallow cookout where we spotted an elk on the Y Camp’s main quad, a pony ride Claire went on that lasted 15 seconds, cycling around Lake Estes in a 4-person bike, and much time lounging around the cabin.
