What you see
The last two posts I didn't include pictures because, well, I didn't take any of the airplane messes. But I did take lots of pictures of my grandboys.
Getting to know Coby Dean
Kelly said our main assignment was to keep Carter and Cohen busy. When we got to Tracee's we noticed that she needed some fixes to a closet so we were off to Lowe's and took the boys with us. Now in my time I would have NEVER taken two little boys shopping anywhere with me, and most of all not to Lowe's. But then "back then" there wasn't a Lowe's, and I wouldn't have had a fun Grandpa with me.
Barnes and Noble for a book
We must have done a good job cuz they didn't last long once we got them in the car.
Coby hanging with Grandpa
Today's activity: a train ride to Glenwood Springs.
Kelly decided to go at the last minute, since she'd never taken the train through Glenwood Canyon. It's fuzzy cuz American trains just aren't as smooth as German trains. Jenny was hogging the baby and it was the only way I could get a picture of Coby on his first train ride.
Aunt Tracee provided the games. Here's Cohen trying to break into "Pass the Pigs."
Cohen, nearly asleep at the window.
Now just where was that ice cream parlor?
Garret, Jenny and Carter
And all this time I thought Glenwood Springs was famous for it's springs.
Speaking of which - View of the hot springs and Hotel Colorado from the train station.
A guy's gotta do something while waiting for a train.....
And here it is now!
We're proud of all of our sons-in-law, even Kevin (in costume for a part in Carter's birthday party).
Who knew? A campfire in the back yard for a Sunday afternoon wiener roast!
Coby chillin' with Grandpa.
Walking Trooper. And Carter.
And a break to climb trees.
Took Coby to the park.
Then to Uncle Rob's to play with his Hotwheels.

"Da train, da train!!
