Colorado Trip Recap {Part 1}

Hey everyone!

As most of you guys may know (maybe not my new readers, hey guys!), but I just recently got back from spending a week with my cousin and her family in Colorado. I had such a blast getting away from the ridiculous cold of Chicago to go to the mile high city. I'm going to do this trip recap in two parts because I don't want to completely bore you all to death.

I do wish I got to go skiing, but with two baby nephews that was almost impossible to do.

Here are a few snaps my sis and I took before our flight to Denver.
{} Mimosas pre flight
{} Crazy face selfies with the sis
{} Waiting patiently with my Starbucks and Longchamp in tow
{} Smily selfies
{} Flying over Colorado

As soon as we got to my cousins house in Colorado Springs, I was ready to attack my favorite nephew with the chubbiest of cheeks. He is extremely playful and loves his aunt (who spoiled him rotten with gifts).
{} Cute chubby cheeks overload
{} Trying to get D to smile in the pic
{} Playing on the spinny chair
{} Scoobs, my fave corgi
{} Finally got him to smile

The first full day was spent snuggling with the kiddos (and doggies), coffee, and mojitos at the end of the night!
{} Sleepy baby waking everyone up at 5:30 am daily
{} Kisses for D
{} S rocking those shades
{} Drinking his milk before naptime like a boss
{} Afternoon cup of Joe in a fitting mug
{} Sophie pretending to be a calm dog (she isn't)
{} Bro-in-law made us mojitos and they were SOO delish
{} Innocent baby D looking at me while snappin' pix

The next day (Saturday) was my nephews 1st birthday party at Monkey Bizness which was actually just as much fun for us adults as it was for the kids!
{} Cake, cake, cake
{} Party morning starting it off right with some cheerios
{} Playing with his awesome Cars balloons
{} S wearing his party favor mustache shades
{} Birthday boy slyly eating his cake and pizza
{} S and I rocking a selfie together
{} D about to tear open into his awesome gifts
{} Another selfie, this time with blue teeth for S
{} Baby D riding in his toy car happily

That's all I got for you folks today. Stay tuned on Thursday when I bring you what fun we got into on Saturday night after the kiddos went to bed and the rest of my time in Colorado!
