Earlier this month our friends Jeremy, Ashley, and Jack flew to Colorado for a visit!  They came in on a Friday evening and only had to endure one blown-out diaper on the flight from Indy and trek from the airport to our house in the foothills.  Hey, you're not really a seasoned traveler until you've been covered in poop in the airport, Jeremy.  You earned your wings that day.  

We managed to pull off quite a bit of sightseeing and good eating during the four days they stayed with us before heading up to Estes Park, even when working around the nap schedules of 10 month-old Jack and 13 month-old Jack.

Brent and Jack Warren, rolling around a golf ball on a Saturday morning.  Or preparing for an early afternoon tee time, I'm just not sure.  

A pair of Jacks headed up the stairs.  

Jack Robert, you're never going to guess how this door works!  I think I've figured out the secret, here in this spring.

Can't we come load the car with you?  We're very helpful.  

On Saturday we headed down to Colorado Springs.  We ate lunch in Manitou Springs at Savelli's, then walked around at the Garden of the Gods.  I'll spare you tons of scenery pictures here, since it's only been roughly a year since GoG pics were plastered heavily on this website.

On Sunday we went hiking at Deer Creek Canyon.  Jeremy and Ashley brought a backpack carrier out with them, and we found a steal on Craigslist the week before so we ended up with one, too.  I think the guys were glad they had them...and I think Ashley and I were glad to only have regular packs with a few bottled waters on our backs.  

Before the hoisting onto Dad's back.

The hike wasn't all that thrilling to the Jacks.  One is working on pulling off a Cubs hat, and the other is passed out in his carrier.

Oooo, the camera!

Part two of a great visit coming soon!

I waited to read this until Jeremy and I could read it together. So much fun reliving the trip! We had a great time and can't wait to see you three again!
