Colorado visit

A few months ago, we found cheap tickets to fly to Colorado to visit Josh's brother and his family. We haven't seen them in almost a year and they have a new baby boy whom I had not met. Since Josh and his brother, Austin, are such HUGE Texas Longhorn fans, we decided to visit during the Texas/Oklahoma football game.

Going to the airport is never a fun experience with Josh. He is usually very anxious and can be a little short on patience, but this time, he was really good and so was Lincoln. I kept telling Linc that we were about to take off and what kind of noise the airplane was going to make. Then the time came and we started down the runway and up into the air. Once Linc saw how high we were, he got a little scared and repeated, "All done, All done...." and "Up? Up? Up?" Finally we were able to turn on his portable DVD player to watch his new favorite movie...The Great Muppet Caper. But the DVD ran out of batteries about 20 min. before we landed and he was NOT happy. I felt sorry for the woman in front of him because he kept kicking her seat.
We finally got there and had a wonderful time reuniting with our niece and our family and getting to know our newest nephew. We played at the park, ate great food and some "not so great" food at a creepy, haunted house restaurant with a scary gorilla man, and had a really fun time just relaxing at home with Austin and Meredith.
We had a great time and look forward to seeing them again soon!
