We drove in Friday night after Kreg got off work just in time to meet Cole & Kelsey in Monte Vista, CO at the drive-in movies. I just LOVE drive-in movies! We saw Brave, which Westin has been quoting ever since. Kreg & I enjoyed the movie, too... Kreg laughed out loud more than once :)
|The boys woke up early, excited to go fishing!|
The highlight of our trip was Westin catching his first fish. He has been fishing with Kreg several times and has watched Kreg catch fish before but never had he caught one on his own fishing pole!
|Daddy & Westin|
|The look of concentration...|
|Tucker can't wait til he's big enough!|
|"Woa... look at that!"|
|So proud. "I did it!"|
|"Are you proud of me, Daddy?"|
|Still on cloud 9.|
|He couldn't stop touching it...|
|Couldn't take his eyes off of it...|
|Still very attached to "his" fish|
|An 11" rainbow|
We got to do a lot of other fun little activities while we were there:
|Westin feeding the geese|
|Tucker & Daddy feeding the geese|
|We took a paddle boat ride|
Fun things I did NOT get pictures of, unfortunately, include: a little train ride around the resort (again, Wes was in heaven), lots of yummy food compliments of Cole's family, roasted marshmallows & starbursts, & a lumberjack festival.
Cole's family always does a church service on Sunday morning while they're all together. The young men take turns leading songs, reading scripture, and preaching. Westin got to "help" by getting up and saying a couple of his memory verses which made me so very proud! I really didn't know whether or not he would want to "perform," but he did great and was proud of himself! Maybe he'll be a preacher :)
I was very thankful for a chance to spend some quality time with my boys with a few less distractions than normal. It's been quite a year so far and our schedules have been very full. It really reminded me how important it is to take a break from "busy!"
