I'm a Traveling Fool!!


We just got back from a week long trip to Colorado and I don't think that Cooper is ever going to forgive me for tearing him away from that place! Talk about a boy's dream! He had 3 male cousins all roughin' and toughin' it but still including him. He had a trampoline, swing set, forest, pool, cars galore, and enough toys to stock a children's museum. He had the time of his life playing outside almost all day long! I enjoyed having some freedom from Cooper...enough freedom to read the new Stephenie Meyer book, "The Host". It was a very relaxing vacation. Little Luke made his very own milestone--he learned to roll over from his back to his tummy! I can't wait for him to learn to roll back over so he stops screaming in discomfort! At the end of it we heard on the same day that my sister-in-law Jamie had her baby Austin (Congrats!) and that my grandfather had passed away. I have so many fond memories of him and all of his stories, but when they get to be 90 years old it's almost a relief for them to finally let go. We are heading to Idaho Falls for his funeral early in the morning and then sticking it out there for 2 weeks while we anxiously wait for the Jewkes Colorado Reunion. I am so, so excited!! It might be a while to my next blog due to my future transient state. We'll be in touch sooner or later! Having so much fun at the Denver Zoo with cousins. Now, according to Cooper, every animal neighs like a horse! At least he's associating sounds with animals!I swear this ape was playing Peek-a-boo!Our daily "shows" at the Tasker home. They were amateur to say the least, but we pretended they were as good as Les Miserables!
Luke giving a booty call after flipping on to his tummy. So cute!

Fun. So much to catch up on. I haven't looked at your blog since I saw you! I love that video of Gary with the kids. I wish I could turn your stupid music off so I could enjoy it even more! haha.

OH MY GOSH to Cooper's accident. That is the worst thing about having kids- having to deal with their injuries. It's way more traumatic than having an injury of your own. If it makes you feel better, Owen broke his wrist at the ripe age of three and Hazel had already had an injury bad enough to warrant a cat scan by the age of two! I promise I'm a good Mom. Really.

Have fun with all your visits. Sorry to hear about your gramps. That's good that you get to go to the funeral. Hope you guys can all share your fond memories to celebrate his life. :)

I miss you guys!

Its fun that you get to spend so much time with your mom. Your boys are getting so big, I can't wait to see them again!

It was good to see you on Friday - even though we didn't really talk or anything. It sounds like you had so much fun in Colorado and I hope you're having the same out in UT. Traveling with kids isn't always the most fun though- I hope they'll do okay being out there for so long.

Hey, I linked to your blog from my cousin Megan's. I'm not sure I've ever met you, but you are married to my cousin Jake (second cousin I believe). He worked with my dad Del for a while a few years back...anyway, guess we are cousins and I'd better say hi! I love your blog!

You are a traveling fool. We've missed you. Looks like you've had a great time though.

Hey, would you mind giving me a call. I've left a couple messages on your phone.I have a question to ask you about cleaning. Thanks, Jenn
