Bridger and I have been in Colorado for the past couple weeks visiting Honey, Big Fella, and Auntie McKae while Steve is home studying his brains out for his PE exam that he takes in less than a week. I was supposed to come home after staying out here for a week, but a couple days before I was supposed to fly home, Steve called and suggested that I stay out here for a little longer while he focused on studying. I think Bridger and I are a little bit of a distraction to Steve! We sure are missing him, and can't wait to see him in just a couple days!
I'd be lying, though, if I said we weren't having lots of fun being with all our fun family in Colorado!
Our trip started off by going to Grand Junction to watch McKae in her tennis tournament. Steve drove out with me, so that he could watch McKae too, and so I didn't have to drive out there alone, and just in case Bridger didn't do so well in the car. It was Bridger's first road trip and he did so great! It's about 3 1/2 hours to Grand Junction, and that baby hardly made a peep the entire way. He slept most of the ride over, and when he wasn't sleeping, he was smiling. While Steve drove back to Utah, I drove the rest of the way to Littleton with my parents. It's another 3 hours, or so, to my house, and Bridger slept the entire time. Not one sound. I'm telling you, Steve and I were blessed with an ANGEL baby!
Happy as can be in his carseat :)
We were supposed to leave later in the day on Friday, but I think Steve could tell I was a little anxious to get out there, so he arranged his schedule so that he didn't have to go into work at all on Friday. He is too good to me. Steve loves his surprises, so we decided to leave early in the morning on Friday, and let my parents continue to think we were leaving much later. Needless to say, they were pretty excited to see us (and by us, I mean Bridger, of course) right as McKae's first match of the tournament started.
Mama Donna and Papa Dick made this little banner for McKae! So cute!
My mom and dad got us a hotel room, and I was a little bit nervous about how well Bridger would sleep away from home, especially since he had been doing so well--8 or 9 hours! Well, Steve decided to make a nice, comfy bed for our little munchkin, hoping to mimic his bed at home, in the dresser drawer!
Well, it worked. He slept 9 1/2 hours. No big deal.
The night before we left for Grand Junction, I made Bridger Boy a little onesie for the tournament to surprise McKae. I think she liked it! It turned out cute, and Bridger got all kinds of attention because of it, of course!
It says "Auntie McKae's #1 Fan"
Dad wasn't so sure about the "Baby Legs," which are essentially baby leg warmers, but whatever, I think they look cute on his chunky little legs
Hey Dad--your birthday is coming up. Do you think they make "Grandpa Legs?" I'll start looking.
It was so much fun to watch McKae in her tournament. She did so great! She could definitely school me any day of the week! hmm, I think I need to start playing more. Watching all that tennis definitely made Steve and me want to get out and play more this summer. Anyone for a little doubles??
It was a fun weekend, and I'm glad Steve was able to come for even just a little bit of it.
More posts to come of the rest of the trip...although, most of the trip has been spent just staring at the baby.
