We’ve been back in our routine for a few weeks now but I still find myself reminiscing about the fun times we had in Colorado. Two days before we left, my sister Marliese and her family arrived from Iowa. With her kids there, that brought the number of cousins up to NINE! On the last day of our vacation, my sister Monette hosted a Fall Festival at her house.
I really wanted to get a good picture of all the cousins with the pumpkins. The lighting was horrible and hardly anyone is looking at me, but if you look really closely through the shadows and squinty faces, you’ll see that I did get all nine kids in the picture!
That evening, we all went over to the church to witness a very special event—my nephew Tyler’s baptism! I was grateful that Marliese chose to have Tyler baptized in Colorado (instead of at their home in Iowa) and also during the week that we were there!
