Happiest Monday! Aren’t holiday weekends the best? Why aren’t all weekends three days? Doesn’t three and four seem more well-balanced for a week to weekend split? Anyways, I digress. Our best friends, the Behennas, headed back to Oklahoma today after spending a week here in Durango. This was their third trip, so we’re now in the “annual” territory. I cannot believe the first time they came, Lillian was only 6 weeks old, and Isla 10!
They arrived on Kirby’s birthday, so naturally I had to try to make a Funfetti recipe healthy, so we celebrated the best we could with dry, vegan, gluten free cupcakes. We got into a daily routine of walking down to the Fish Hatchery to feed the fish in the morning, then would go to the park, play outside, walk through town, etc. until lunchtime. Then nap time, and another activity in the evening. We went to the Rec Center to swim, Kirby and I escaped for ‘Mother’s Day Out’ spa treatments, we frequented many parks, ate at our favorite restaurants (Himalayan Kitchen, Carver’s, Grassburger – to name a few), had lots of Cream Bean Berry ice cream, roasted s’mores, played bean bag toss, waved as a zillion trains went by, browsed the goods at the Saturday Farmer’s Market, celebrated Isla’s third birthday (party photos here), and cheered Sasha on during his big mountain bike race (the Iron Horse Classic). In the evenings, we played games (Monikers and Butt Head were favorites!), drank wine by the fire pit, and had some deep belly laughs while catching up. Needless to say, we made amazing memories and I cannot wait until next year’s trip.
And to prove it, there are a zillion photos below (unfortunately not in any sort of chronological order)! Ha. Totally a shutterbug when these four kiddos are together.
