Just got back from our weekend trip to Cripple Creek. It was wonderful, and the trees were pretty.

Here is the view from the hotel room.

I'm sure some of his reticence to come and see/help "Grampy" the other day was a fear that you were very sick/injured/changed and he didn't want to see that. He is such a sweetie! And I'm glad you guys had a great time!

I thought only Aunts gave noisy toys...

No way! Grandparents want to have fun too.

Besides, SO Keeps buying him clothes. I keep telling her boys hate to get clothes as a gift as every gift of clothing could have been a toy that's now lost forever. I know that's how I felt about it (and still do).

LOL! Both my nephews, who I gave drum sets, kazoos, tambourines, etc., now both play the violin...beautifully!

I drove my Sister nuts, though!
