We were able to travel back to Colorado last weekend and see everyone we had not seen in OVER A YEAR!  I can not believe so much time had passed since we were last back there, but I can assure you it won't happen again!  We have been really lucky this past year to see my parents quite often, but with a new niece and a new child of our own, it was really difficult to find a time to go home.  My 10 year highschool reuinon was this year so we planned a trip back to Colorado during this time.  It was a quick trip and pretty much a whirlwind, but we were able to see just about everyone.  Caroline kept saying that she wanted to see Emma before we went and couldn't quite understand why she wouldn't be there.  It was a little sad to miss Missy and her family, but hopefully we will get to see them soon. 

Josh wasn't able to take a lot of time off so we decided to do things a little differently this time.  When we made the tickets for us to fly up there, we had just gotten back from Florida.  Remember that trip?!!  How could I ever forget?  Well, I wasn't about to fly with the two kids myself, so I left early Wednesday morning and just took Cooper.  Suzanne watched Caroline for part of Wednesday and then Josh and her flew out early Thursday morning.  Both kids were great and it was nice to have a little one on one time with my little Coopster! 
 Grami and Pop Pop's house is the place to be!  They have more toys than we do and anything a little kid could ever want.  Here Caroline is watching a movie and insisted on Mickey sitting next to her.
 Thursday night we had all of the family over to meet Cooper for the first time and see Caroline.  It was so wonderful to all be together again and catch up on everyone's lives.

 Cooper looked so big sitting up in the swing.  He loved this new point of view!

Grami took us on a little fieldtrip down the road to a local dairy.  It was so fun to see these baby animals up close!
The bunnies were Caroline's favorite of course!

Cady stopped by before all of the craziness of the reunion festivities started and said hi to Cooper.  He loved all of the attention!
