A Trip to Colorado Spings



Matt, Benjamin and I recently returned from a five day trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado to visit Matt's sister, Suzanne. She just bought a townhouse this year, and we were very anxious to see her new place, not to mention to spend some quality time with her, and to meet her friends and coworkers. Suzanne is the associate editor for Clubhouse and Clubhouse Jr. magazines at Focus on the Family. While we were there, we got to visit her office, meet her coworkers, and to bring Ben to the Adventures in Odessy playland, complete with Whit's End Soda Shop (although that part was closed). What a fun place! We definitely want to bring Ben back when he's older, and can really enjoy all of the cool features they have to offer.
Overall the visit was very relaxing. Matt and I spent a lot of time just sleeping in, watching TV, and I got a little further on the scarf that I'm knitting. We were also able to go up to Parker, Colorado to visit Matt's grandparents, and his uncle and aunt. Wonderful people. They all enjoyed seeing, holding and kissing Ben, he being their first great grandson/nephew. He did a good job of not fussing, and of being very loving with them.
All in all, our time there went by way too quickly. But, I am so glad that Suzanne will be coming home for Chirstmas next month. It is always good to be with family. God has richly blessed us.
