when we first were thinking about going to colorado, i was so worried about imposing on people... i don't know why i'm so weird about this. maybe because my family never stayed with family or friends. however, we are always welcoming people into our home--we love when people stay with us! so i have no idea why i'm slightly psycho about these things...
imposition or not, i'm so glad dave called sweet pea and beans' parents to let them know we were coming! brad is dave's colorado-idaho connection, and we are so lucky to have meghan thrown into that deal! so anyway, after a pretty severe reprimand from meg, and the visual of only getting to see beans as we drove thru their neighborhood... it was decided we'd stop by for a bbq after the rockies' game. why am i so weird about these things? we had so much FUN with our friends!
my boys were behemoth's compared to the little guys, but it was so much fun to see them all play together. my guys wanted to teach sweet pea to play "ghosts in the graveyard" but tamed it down to just hide-n-seek. they ran that poor little kid ragged, but were pretty impressed that he wanted to be IT all of the time. they were a little confused by why SP was taking the trains from the tracks they were building for him...
but ryan surmised that he and jackson were more "mature" and would have to be patient with SP when they played with him again here in july. and jacks said, "well, he's not playing with my lego trains." we're going to have to work on that maturity and patience thing, i guess, before july.
and here is beans just loving dave tickling his tootsies... babies love my guy!
thanks for being such great friends to us!
ps: if the folks at o'dells should happen by this blog and are happy with dave's product placement here--that is a beauty shot--they can repay him with a few sixers or seeing what they can do about getting it up into our neck of the woods!
