Natalie visits!

 Yay! Welcome Natalie.
 I can just hear Rosemary Clooney singing: " Sisters, Sisters... there were never such devoted sisters"

It was so great to have Natalie come for a visit. 
We had so much fun taking her on a hike and doing so many other great things during her visit.

 We also took the kids to Focus on The Family for a fun play time.
 More pics from our 7 bridges hike.
Check out the cool roots below.

  The third and last bridge of our hike that day. It started to drizzle so we turned back.
 From the bottom, Ellie, then Ethan and Natalie and then at the very top you can almost see Richard peeking over the edge.
 A pic at bridge #2.
 Natalie and Claire sitting by Balance Rock at Garden of the  Gods.  The sun had obviously come out.
I love this picture of Claire and Richard.
We even got to got to visit Natalie's other cousin, Daniel who is a cadet at the Air Force Academy.
 Oh yeah ... we swung by the Olympics training center too.Whew... we were busy!
 AWE Cousin love!

We had so much fun with Josh and Dana at GABF 2012! Thanks to Natalie.
 We also went to daddy's work.
So much fun was had with Natalie. We will miss her.
