I have a cousin, Tiffany, that lives in Colorado. She is Doris and Andrea's age, but she has kids. I had contacted her on Facebook before we left to let her know we were coming. We were finally able to arrange a time to get together. She lived just outside Denver in a little suburb to the north west. It took us about 30 minutes to get there. We got out there and played at the house for a while. Her kids are all older than mine, but they were nice to still play with the girls. They have chickens so the girls had fun playing with them. After a bit we headed over to a park. They had a dentist appointment for one of the kids and there was a park across the street from the office. I hung out at the park with the kids while Tiffany took her daughter into the dentist. The kids had a great time together and it was nice to have a break from entertaining them. I LOVE my children, but was starting to wear down as the sole playmate for them. We were sitting the chatting when Tiffany returned and she received a phone call. She had forgotten a visiting teaching appointment and had to hurry and go. We decided to head back before traffic got bad. We went to our Wash Park and hung out till daddy got off work.

Colorado - Swimming fun!
Starting in on our second week in Colorado. I was beginning to feel a little tired of living out of a hotel, but still loving our adventure. The beginning of the week we decided to hunt down a pool. Our first week it had rained several times, but by the weekend and this week it was getting warm. No where close to the heat of Phoenix, but definitely warm (in the higher 90s). We still went to the parks, but Ada really wanted to go to a pool. We didn't know before hand what the hotel would be like. I had assumed it would have a pool and told her we could practice swimming while there. I'd brought all our swim stuff and had planned to take them swimming in the hotel several times. As it turned out...there was no pool in the hotel and Ada was quite disappointed. She asked about it SEVERAL times the first few days. She still wanted to. We went to a new park a few miles away (tried to go to a new park almost every day). The park happened to be next door to a public pool. Of course, this set her off to bugging about it. We walked over to the pool and it turned out the kids were young enough to be free. I only had to pay $3 for me. I decided it was worth it for some new fun and entertainment. It was a VERY nice pool area. They had a splash pad area off to the side, the big kid pool, one water slide, and a little kid pool (only a few feet deep). I thought we would only stay an hour of so, but we ended up staying almost 3 hours. The kids had a fabulous time.
