Fun Fun Fun

Things have been very busy, but we've been doing some fun stuff! Last weekend, my sister and I went to the New Kids on the Block concert in Broomfield. We had gone to a concert when we were little and thought it would be fun to go again. The latest concert was one of the most entertaining concerts I've ever been to. They put on a really great show!

Today, Kevin and I went to go see Twilight. If you haven't read these books, you should! They are very addicting. I absolutely love this series. And I want to go see the movie again. I loved it! And so did Kevin.

It's a short week this week. I only need to make it through 3 days, and then it's a long weekend! I need the break...

Happy Birthday, Grandma!

This weekend, Kevin and I traveled to Iowa Falls, IA to celebrate my grandma's 90th birthday. We figured out that she has 6 kids, 15 grandkids, and 11 great-grandkids (so far!). Of all those people, only 3 grandkids were not able to travel this weekend. We got to see my aunts and uncles and cousins and second cousins and great-uncle, etc. It was so fun to see everyone. We don't get to spend very much time with the extended family, so we have to make the best of it when we do get together!

On Friday morning, Kevin and I flew to Omaha, where my parents picked us up. We then drove to Iowa. We stopped in Ames, where Iowa State University it. That's where both my parents and most of their parents and brothers and sisters went. It was fun to visit the campus and see where they used to live.

Then we drove to Iowa Falls, where we had dinner with the family. Then some of us went bowling, which was a blast. I am a terrible bowler! On Saturday, we had a open house for my grandma. There were so many people there! It was really fun. After the open house, a priest came and we had a private Mass for our family. I know that was really special for my grandma. Then we had dinner and went back to the hotel and watched football. There were lots of people cheering for lots of different teams, so it was pretty fun!

We drove home from Iowa to Colorado on Sunday. It was a long drive, but it was short compared to our drive from Texas last weekend!

11 of 12!!!

As everyone knows, Kevin and I are huge CU Football fans. We have made it our goal to see a football game in all 12 Big 12 stadiums. This past weekend we drove down to Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. We had a great time! Texas A&M is 11 of 12 stadiums for me and 10 of 12 for Kevin. We both still need to go to Oklahoma, and Kevin still needs to go to Iowa State. Here are some pictures from our trip! Even though we lost, it was great to visit a school with some much pride and tradition.
