Denver - Day 1


We left for the airport at 4:30 and had a great flight.


We got to ride the train to baggage claim. Bonus!
I love how Julia is holding on like the recording said to.


We were all super excited to see Daddy!!

Together at last.


We spent 4 hours at the Denver Zoo. Boy is that a cool place!
The weather was perfect!




My first ride on a Merry-Go-Round animal in decades.


The best part of going to the zoo is seeing it through the eyes of my children.


Bonding with Grandma



Yummy Ice Cream!!!


Where's mine?




I love this one of Sam and Grandma on the train.


These were some of our favorite animals:


As expected we were exhausted by the end of the day and went to the hotel to check in and hopefully get a good nights rest. Mission accomplished! The kids both went to sleep well and slept through the night. Good thing too because the next day was just as busy......

  1. Looks like a great beginning to your trip! I think your stroller is really neat! You want to know what I thought about as I was looking at your pictures? I couldn't imagine having to carry Julia at the zoo! Hope she sat in the stroller or you were able to carry her in the sling!

  2. Thankfully she was happy to sit in the stroller a lot of the time. 25+ pounds of baby girl is too much for me without the sling so it was nice to have that option as well. You'll see it in future pictures that sometimes I used the sling as a purse. It was an easy way to grab the camera I needed at the moment.

  3. What a great trip so far! Miriam especially enjoyed all of the animals. I hear you on 25 pounds being too much to carry. Miriam is about that much, and now that I have Kevin, she doesn't get carried around too much. But there is something to the denseness of babies. Kevin is only 15 pounds but seems to be heavier since his weight isn't as spread out as Miriam's. Look forward to more pictures.

  4. I was JUST thinking of you today Valerie! I wanted to thank you for the travel tip about extra clothes for me. Julia rarely has a blow out that gets on anything else besides her own clothes, but sure enough, when we were dropped off at the airport on Monday I got a bunch on me.
