Have I ever mentioned that Alastair's favorite person on earth is his 14 year old cousin, Damien?!?! Damien came to Colorado for a week to see The Canadays and us. He's growing up; this boy holds a special place in our hearts! He's plays so well with his little cousins and has endless patience with them...what a teenager!
All six cousins. Shiloh decided about halfway through picture taking that she was done.
Fran is taking a little ride on our backyard tree swing.
Hike at Heil Valley Ranch. They complained a little about the idea of a hike, but they all had a blast!
They really look thrilled, huh?!
The best part of the day was our picnic and the kids playing in the river!
The boys did some camping on the trampoline on Damien's last night here.
Can't beat a movie and popcorn in the tent!
Camping at Carter Lake, first time we got our boat out all summer! This waterproof cast cover was a bit of a life saver!
And a little family sunset kayak ride.
Examining a stink bug.
Hammock Life is the life for us!
Fran on the bow.
Can't resist selfies on a sunny day on the lake!
Driving the boat....not my thing, but we're a two man show when it comes to surfing, so I'll do my duty.
Best part of Hammock Life....they go EVERYWHERE!
Buddy got to do some tubing in spite of his broken arm.
