Trip to Colorado

May was an emotional month: I lost the diamond out of my wedding ring, Brecken turned 3, and my sister graduated from high school. But saddest of all was that my Grandma passed away. This necessitated a trip to Colorado, which turned into a week-long affair in an attempt to make both the funeral and the graduation. I was thrilled that Tim was able to take time off work and come with us and even more excited that I got to see all my family at once (which hasn't happened in forever) and spend a week with them, even though it was for a sad reason.
Here's Brecken loving every second of the plane ride.

We managed to have quite a bit of fun on our trip and see some old friends. We visited the Denver Zoo w/ our good friends from college, Meg & Dan and their two children. We also got to eat at Cafe Rio (woo-hoo) and meet Lindsey & Robert for dinner.
And, of course, the happy part of our visit (and the LONGEST graduation ceremony I have ever seen in my life): Congratulations, Bre!
Seriously, the ceremony was over two hours, complete with fireworks and almost a full hour of musical numbers. Might I add that there were only 100 graduates in the class?

Sorry to hear about your Grandma. And the other crazy stuff going on during your month. Isn't getting family all together at once so much fun! I can't belive how fast your Brecken is growing!
