The day after the quads’ birthday, we traveled with the Steece family, to Colorado for a wedding. Granna and Auntie JuJu babysat the quads for 5 extremely LONG days. (Thank you SO much~ LOVE YOU!!!)
We headed to the airport with Ed (Joe’s youngest bro) and Jess (Ed’s girlfriend).
Savannah drew me some pictures to take on the plane.
Waiting in the Denver airport for everyone else to arrive
Our rental car crew~ Dan (Joe’s middle bro) and Dani (his wife)
We stopped in Golden, Colorado for a little field trip…
Anyone who has ever met Joe, knows that his absolute favorite beer is Coors.
I personally can’t stand beer, but came along for the ride.
Free samples…like a kid in a candy shop
After the brewery, we headed west to Beaver Creek… took this picture for the boys~ it gave me inspiration for the train tunnel that I built for their bday party (stay tuned for that post).
It was such a beautiful drive! Very different than staring at dead yellow grass on the sides of the interstate.
We stayed at The Charter and it was incredible! Dan and Dani were sweet enough to give us the 2nd master bedroom. True love.
That night we ate an amazing dinner at The Beaver Creek Chophouse.
Diddy, Joe & Dani
Dan, Kate & Suz
Love these guys~ Joe, me, Dani & Dan
Friday morning, the fellas went golfing and the gals had a girl’s day in Vail Village.
So beautiful to look up and see the mountains! Surreal.
Davy Crockett’s long lost relative… isn’t she cute, folks? Dani would make a brown paper sack look good.
Friday evening, Joe and I were able to go on a real date! Just the two of us! We enjoyed a nice glass of wine and lovely Sinatra tunes at the Grouse Mountain Grill.
We met up with everyone back at the hotel
My girls~ Jess, Dani & me
The beautiful bride and groom~ Trevor and Stacy
Ed was Trev’s best man
Love these crazy kids~ Ed & Jess
LOVE my bros~ Ed & Dan
Jessie and Joey
Grampy & Grammy~ still sweethearts! Love it.
Saturday morning, Joe and I woke up early for a nice walk around the Beaver Creek Village. It was absolutely breathtaking. MUCH DIFFERENT than the triple digit weather in TX.
Colorado folks, PLEASE don’t EVER take these views for granted. Gorgeous.
I couldn’t get over the beeeeeautiful flowers everywhere. Made me SO happy.
Back to Vail Village…crazy cool car made of Legos.
Some extremely smart people sitting on a bench…
We had a wonderful lunch at Tavern on the Square
Our view…I mean, seriously?!!!
Saturday afternoon was the wedding.
…and our nude colored shoes (apparently these are “in” right now~ LOL)
Look at this view! What a perfect Colorado wedding.
The whole gang
Me and my hunny
Dids and Kate, such a beautiful couple!

Kate and Sonya~ gorgeous Mother of the Groom!
The last night in Colorado, the fam headed out to Splendido~ an incredible fine dining restaurant.
I took some pretty pics of everyone on the balcony
Seriously the BEST food I have ever eaten. I broke the ole diet just a smidge on this one…
On the plane, headed home…
Thank you SOOOOOO much to Diddy and Kate for a trip of a lifetime. We had a BLAST! LOVE YOU SO MUCH and everything you do for our family.
And to the Hursh and Casterlin fams~ thank you for letting us be a part of such a special weekend. It was magical and perfect in every way.
Stacy and Trevor~ God bless you guys and your new journey together! It’s a blast, hold on tight to each other. XOXO
