Learning, living and loving life with my other Mc's.

Well, it's been a while. Surprise, surprise! It's a busy time for us, and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. Here's the latest happenings ...

My parents came up to help while Jace was sick. They stayed for 2 weeks which was nice since Scott was out of town for a bit. Scott arrived home at 2am last Saturday, Mom and Walter left at 5:30am, and Scott's brother arrived with his family around 7pm that same Saturday. It was a busy day!

We had tons of fun with the Mike Mc family. They each fought a bug and some altitude sickness while they were here. That stunk. The weather was great, though, so they were able to enjoy themselves between stomach aches and headaches! I think my favorite memory of their trip will be what Owen called our nephew Lucas -- "Circus." It took us a little bit to figure out why he kept talking about the circus. Fortunately, Rana understood from the get-go, and shed some light on the situation. Thanks for coming up, guys. We had tons of fun!

On Wednesday, Rana and I were given tickets from a dear friend to see the Disney on Ice, Monster's Inc. show. I was feeling very ill, but could never pass up one-on-one time with any of my kiddos. It's such a rarity. Apparently, Rana can't either. The little baby in the picture is Brianna Rose Petals, Rana's "real" baby (and don't argue otherwise!). We had a GREAT time! Thanks Amanda!
Yesterday we went to the St. Patty's Day Parade downtown. We had taken Rana and Owen 2 years ago, and really enjoyed ourselves. This year ... completely different story. There were SO many people there. We met up with our Colorado family (the Moore's, Jops, and Garcia's), and joked while walking downtown that we were doing our own parade. It was funny until the parade got separated in the sea of people and the double stroller that was taxi-ing 3-4 kids at a time lost it's wheels. Wish I would have taken a pic of it. We left it on the sidewalk, and it looked like a car that got left on the wrong side of town. Hilarious! When the parade was done, we all paraded to our house for a cookout. It's great to hang out with old friends.

So, today is Sunday, and we're trying to wind down. We went to the park today after church. It's another beautiful, dry CO day.

You look pretty for not feeling good!
Love the "Circus" name, funny how siblings know each other's lingo better than parents!

Glad someone is enjoying this weather. Great to hear that your kids are all well. Katie can't wait to ride the too-too-train downtown. We'll do that some weekend when the weather is nice and no one is sick.
