Mothers Day

Oops, I've been terrible about updating the blog. So here goes, once again. Maybe some year I'll be able to update all year round!

Things have been very busy around here! First of all, my brother Ryan came back from Afghanistan last month!!!!!! It was a busy time preparing for him to come back, and flying out to celebrate his homecoming! What a blessing!

Then Rob's sister came into Denver, so we visted with her and celebrated Easter.

Then a friend of ours got married, and of course there were a few birthdays to celebrate in there...

And now Mother's Day! But I am so blessed that all of these things are going on in my life! I wouldn't want it any other way!

So starting at the end....
For Mother's Day we went up to Estes Park to see the Estes Park Duck Race. My mom had always wanted to see it, and since it fell on Mother's Day weekend it was the perfect time! Ryan and Rob and I and my parents all met in Estes for some beautiful mountain scenery and fresh air. The weather was gorgous!! We went to see the ducks be dropped into Fall River -- there were almost 6000 ducks!!!

Here are the ducks before they were dropped into the water! Some have sunglasses and some don't!

Who doesn't want their picture taken with a duck! A perfect Mother's day photo op...

The ducks as they fall into the water! Go duck go!

A lot of them would get stuck along the side -- there were helpers to 'free' the ducks, including my dad and as you will see in the next post, Irene :)

These poor ducks were stuck while other ducks raced past them....
