Denver

Ryan and I were able to drive to Denver this last weekend for Gavin’s baby blessing. It was a quick visit; we left here on Saturday morning and drove back on Monday. (Note to self: Beth's calm expires after about 8 to 9 hours in a car so if you think you might be delayed by traffic or anything else under the sun, take ear plugs along). We had a great time playing games over at Jason and Ellen’s and just spending what little time we had together.
On Sunday it was a beautiful blessing. Gavin is a big and handsome boy. Here he is with Uncle Ryan and Ellen.
Eric and Beth had fun in the hotel, especially before it was time to go to bed. We had to push one of the beds up against the wall and create a playpen type enclosure at 1:30 in the morning on the first night after Eric fell out of bed twice.
Now for a Trip Down Memory Lane. This is more for the Clines side. The Hooker House 20 odd years later. Still looks good.
Boy this brings back memories for me. I like the paint job but one of the trees in front looks a little bare compared to the one we planted.
The playhouse is still standing and still beloved. I wish I could have gone in and taken a look around.
This is for Mary, she'll remember fond memories of this.
My elementary alma mater.
Our old stomping grounds. Pretty doesn't seem to cover it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Denver temple.
Many great memories. Wish we had more time to look around spend with family.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. Sure wish we could have been there with you all, but Jordon has improved 5 fold this week. It's just a matter of keeping his head from shifting. Beth looks cute as ever! Jordon almost looks as tall as her, scary thought. Hope Eric didn't get any bruises from his falls! You all look great!

Love Darlene and crew
