Picnic by the Big Thompson

This bird was almost stalking us...waiting for us to leave so it could eat our leftovers!

Saturday July 10: My cousin Laura came out to Colorado to work on her dissertation and was able to visit us for a few days! She used to live in Greeley but now is teaching in West Virginia. It has been a while since we have seen her and we were so excited to see her! We went up the canyon to the Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park which is right along the Big Thompson River. It was my first time going to the park, and it was beautiful! We had such a great time!

Carnival Time!

Jen and Zoe getting ready for the "dumbo" ride...their elephant went up and down, Addy and Aunt Patsy's stayed in the air the whole time!

They loved this car ride!

July 3rd: After the parade, we headed over to the Stampede grounds to have lunch and go to the carnival there. The rides were all $1 and the girls had a great time!

Stampede Parade

Addy being very patriotic!

These longhorns opened the parade. There were probably 20-30 of them being led down the middle of the was quite a sight!

Can you tell who had a donut for breakfast??!!

Zoe...what a look!

Jen and the girls

July 3rd: Jen, Mom, Aunt Patsy, the girls and I went to Greeley for the annual Greeley Stampede Parade. This was the first time I had ever been and it was a lot of fun! The girls go a little bored because they didn't allow candy or anything to be thrown out, but it was still a fun time!
