Vacation with the Illinois Abbotts

Last week Grandpa Dean, Fran, Jackson and Holly Abbott visited us. It was a great visit! We all got to spend lots of time together and we got to know each other better. Noah, Jackson and Holly had never met each other and by the time they left Friday morning they were all very good friends. In fact, the morning after they left Noah seemed puzzled as to where Jackson and Holly were!
Here's a picture of the three amigos their first morning here: (they all got in around 11 the night before so Noah didn't know they were here until the morning. He adjusted very well to having company!):
And here they are later that morning playing trains! (Noah actually shared with them- he hasn't been letting J or I play with his train track lately!):
Uncle Jackson being silly by putting the house from the train set on Noah's head. These two became quite good buds!:
Holly and Jackson playing with my nieces, Mary and Ellie, on Tuesday evening in the sandbox:
Since we had company we had to break out the game "Corn Hole"; he's Noah walking with Uncle Seth and Uncle Aaron to the other end. He loves to watch this game:
Aunt Holly and Nephew Noah sharing a bath, they were too cute together!:
Here we are picnicking in Rocky Mountain National Park:
Here's the crew (Fran, Holly, Dean, Justin, Noah & Jackson) walking back from exploring some boulders:

Me with Noah and Holly:
All the Abbott boys, Dean, Noah, Jackson, Justin and Seth, playing Corn Hole. . . . again:
Here's my youngest brother-in-law, Jackson. He starts 2nd grade in a couple weeks. Good luck with school Jax!
And here's my sister-in-law, Holly. Isn't she as cute as a button?:
Here are the Abbott brothers: Jackson, Justin and Seth. . .. playing. . . . you guessed it. . . . CORN HOLE!
Guess what, more Corn Hole (I didn't realize how many pictures I got of them playing this game, really they didn't play it that much!):
Here's the mighty trio eating breakfast:
Me, reading to Noah and Holly:
I love this picture of Noah and Holly watching their chicken nuggets cooking:
Right before they left, check out this crew! Julie, Holly, Seth, Noah and Jackson!
It was a great time had by all and hopefully we'll get to see them again soon!
