More visits from family & adventures to share. 
Nana Deb, my lovely mom, came to visit us in Colorado a couple of weeks ago. She was only here for a few days, but we managed to get plenty of fun packed into those days. 

 This was her first time meeting Olivia in person, which was super special. Greyson was 8 months old before we were able to make a trip home after he was born for her to meet him, so for her to be able to meet Olivia when she wasn't yet 4 months old was pretty awesome! Grey loves Nana Deb & we call her all the time, even when she isn't available to chat he'll have pretend conversations with her! And quickly became obsessed with her camera. 

First up - the pool! It was blazing hot while she was here so a trip to the pool seemed necessary. We all hung out & played in the water. Until the kids napped & Greyson woke up sick. 
 Next we walked around & looked at the outside planes that are on display as a part of the Peterson Air & Space Museum. Grey is obsessed with planes so he was pretty excited to show them to Nana. And of course assign one to everyone he knows! 




And we visited the Penrose Heritage Museum. They have a bunch of old carriages and race cars on display, so to say Greyson loved it would be an understatement. The green racecar was daddy's, even though he wasn't able to go with us. The red racecar was Lightning McQueen, of course. It was such a cute little museum to explore with our little car lover. 




Of course we couldn't skip the zoo, as you know we are pretty much obsessed! It was our first time trying out the double stroller. I always swore I'd never have a double stroller, but bought it thinking I would use it to jog (haha, yeah right). And it turned out to be handy at the zoo. We saw all of Greyson's favorite animals, he showed Nana how to be a tiger & elephant, and got to explore the plane by the African exhibit. 






And last but not least was the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. They are a museum that works to restore and recreate dinosaur fossils and bones. They have a bunch on display that have been found all over the world. We saw Triceratops, Grey's favorite, and managed to get a sort of family picture! 


 We love when family comes to visit but are always sad when they have to leave! It's definitely hard having kids & living so far from everyone. But we are grateful that we live much closer now & are able to go back & forth a little easier. 

We look forward to our next visitors & are hoping we can find some time to make it back to Ohio sometime soon.
