Our treasured time in CO

The Whites just got back from an incredible trip to the wonderful state of Colorado to visit our greatest friends, the Clark family. We had such an amazing and fun trip, and made memories that will last forever.

We got to meet our newest Godson Jed. Tears of joy came over me when I held this perfect little baby. Jason and I have always been at the hospital moments after a Clark baby was born, so I was overjoyed to finally get to hold him in my arms. He is the cutest and the sweetest little baby. I soaked him up for the 4 days we were there, trying to hold him countless hours, smelling his newborn scent which I could smell forever, cuddling him and just loving every minute being with him. What a joy!

We never really knew how truly beautiful Colorado is, where everything is green and there is LAND everywhere. There were cows roaming the grass and barns here and there. You can really see God’s awesome beauty by seeing miles and miles of grass leading up to beautiful big breathtaking mountains. There was even a big thunder and lighting storm before we left, which was fun to experience the true Colorado weather.

Jason spent many hours playing and wrestling with the kids, playing chase and running around the house. Laylie loved being with all the kids and enjoyed every day with them. It did take her a full week to recover from all the fun she had. The first day home I think she was only awake for 3 hours during the day. She was pooped!!

Kacy and I got to spend some wonderful time together talking about life, laughing, crying, and enjoying our time together. Words can’t express how much I love and miss my friend and it made my heart so thrilled that I was able to spend so much time with her. I really can’t wait to see my best friend again because she is a person I love living every step of life with.

We spent a day at a beautiful park and had lunch together. Another day we adventured out and went to this indoor play ground inside “Focus on the Family” where we ran around and enjoyed our time. This place is so fun, I wish they had something like it here….every room was painted and decorated, there was a 3 story slide, and the best part was it was all Christian themed. We all had a blast and Laylie loved it.

We had an incredible time being together going to see their NEW home with 10 acres of land, a barn, two houses and the most beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains. Kacy has this amazing way of making their home feel so warm and welcoming, and I can’t wait to see how her new home will be after she puts all of her special touches in it. There will be some wonderful memories in their new home and we are thrilled that God made it all happen for them. Congratulations!

Joey had all kinds of events planned for Jason and they were always out and about doing something fun. Sunday morning they woke up at 5:30am to hike up this crazy mountain, and they made it all the way to the top. Way to go guys!

Thank you Joey, Kacy, and kids for letting us make some incredible memories with you. We truly had the most fantastic trip. We sure do miss you and cant wait to go back to Colorado and stay in your NEW home someday soon. What a trip to remember!!!!!
