Alamosa!

After leaving Colorado Springs on Tuesday we headed for Alamosa, Co. Jared's Aunt Vicki, Uncle Ron, Cousin Becca and her husband Sean and their three girls, Plus Uncle Steve and Nicole all live in the general vicinity.

Tanner was the only child brave enough to hold the baby croc. He received a certificate of bravery. He's so proud.
Aunt Vicki and Uncle Ron have chickens and the boys loved them. Brennan was devastated at the idea he wouldn't get to collect the eggs before we left. Thankfully Uncle Ron was able to take him out one last time and they found 4.
The pitch fork you see in Uncle Ron's hands it probably the culprit. Graham was outside playing and ended up with a deep puncture wound in his right leg. It caused tons of drama as we called our pediatrician as well as the health department to see what to do. He was doing okay until we went up to the camp. It started to look really infected and after sending him through the prayer chain at church it cleared right up. Thank you Lord!
This is the Alamosa airport when Uncle Ron, Aunt Vicki and cousin Sean work. The kids love to visit and this time they left with a box full of walkie talkies. They apparently replaced theirs and let the boys have the old set. The kids LOVE them and act as if they won the lottery.

Thank you Ron and Vicki for your generosity. We love you dearly and so appreciate you taking in our family of 7 and allowing us a wonderful vacation full of relaxation and family. We can't wait to return!
