My 10 year old cousin, Katie, came to Colorado for vacation. She spent the past two and a half weeks here. She came out all by herself. How brave of her. It it were me, I would be terrified to travel by myself, especially since the last time we saw her was years ago when she was super little.
It was so much fun to spend time with her. She absolutely loved Chloe and it was clear Chloe liked her too. Anytime Katie held her, she was calm and so happy. If Katie walked in the room, Chloe would just watch her. It was so sweet.
Katie tried to convince us that she could do the Saltine Cracker challenge and eat 10 in one minute.
We decided to test her!
It was so sad to sad bye to her on Monday! She left yesterday morning to head back to Pennsylvania. Hopefully we get to see her again soon along with the rest of her family who we miss so much!
On the 4th of July this year it was hot and smokey from not only the Colorado fires, but smoke blew in from Utah and Wyoming also. Any kind of fireworks were banned this year since it has been so hot and dry and the crazy amount of fires. So instead of watching a firework show or setting any off we went to Garrett and Stacey's home for a BBQ with the family. We had good food and great company!
We tried getting Chloe in the pool for the first time since she loves bath time so much! She looked adorable in her little swimsuit but the water was just a little too cold for her.
It was a fun day and wore all of us out. We were exhausted by the end of the day.
For dinner we went and spent some time with my parents, sisters, and cousin Katie who came to visit. It was nice to be able to spend the day with both our families.
