We have been super busy this month and have had many visitors, which we LOVE! Gary's parents came out for the fourth of July and stayed for 2 weeks. We had a great celebration on the 4th, while watching fireworks from our patio, it was the ideal location. No hassle finding a spot, no traffic, and easy access to the kitchen! We spent a few days at Lake Grandby, relaxing and making a lot of fun memories. Joey's first boat ride, turned out to be great, although he absolutely hated wearing his life jacket. lol. Poor baby. ;)
A few days after the Lawson's left, and headed back to MI, Jenna's in-laws came out for a visit. Peggy and Gil were so much fun! We went with them to the Evergreen Art and Brew festival. This was a great time. We got to sample many local brews while shopping! Best of both worlds. We enjoyed some time hiking in Nederland, and dinner in Boulder, at you guessed it...a brewery!
A few days after Peg and Gil left, Jenna's brother-in-law, Danny and his girlfriend, Sharon came out for a long weekend. We went to the Boulder Farmer's Market with them, and had an early dinner at another brewery in Boulder. Mara and Joey spent a lot of time together and really loved passing food, and crayons back and forth to each other. Mara likes to color with them, Joey just likes to eat them.
Gary spent 2 weeks this month traveling back to Northern Michigan for work. He will return on Friday, and I hope that is the last of the travel for a while. I miss him so much when he travels, and It's always more difficult when he's away.
That is July in a nutshell. August is right around the corner, and is already promising a lot of fun...
Hugs from Colorado.
Julie, Gary and Joey
