The highlight of the trip was meeting baby Gavin. He was only a week old when we got there, and was already such an alert, active little guy. Kirsten's favorite thing to do while we were there was hold Gavin. She was so good at comforting him and supporting his little head.
Jason and Ellen were fabulous hosts, especially with having a new baby. It was especially wonderful to have all of Jeremy's family together. We had a blast playing American Idol and Disney Scene It. Kirsten loved seeing her cousin Eric and they held hands everywhere they went. Saturday night we ate dinner at Casa Bonita "the Disneyland of mexican restaurants". There were cliff divers, caves to explore, gorillas, puppet shows and a waterfall. Unfortunately, none of my pictures turned out, but check out their website, it was awesome. Sunday we were able to attend Gavin's blessing at church. After church we had family pictures taken. What a huge crew we had. It was fun to see Jeremy's parents with all those grandkids! We had a wonderful time and are thrilled that we were able to go.
Monday we left Denver and headed to Kansas. My sister and her girls met us at my mom's house. On Tuesday we went to the zoo. Kirsten loved the lions and giraffes.

We all got manicures on Wednesday and then rang in the new year with Dark Knight, sparkling cider and the ball drop. We headed home Thursday night. It is good to be home, but we had a fablous trip! Kirsten was able to see all of her cousins in one trip and had a ton of fun. She keeps asking when we get to go on another trip, but asked that we not forget to get on the airplane next time!
