White Family Reunion 2013

For the White Family Reunion this year - we met up in Steamboat Springs, CO.  Such a beautiful Colorado mountain town!  Rob was still gone for work so I packed up the kids and picked up Trent from the Denver airport before driving to Steamboat Springs.   We had a lot of fun swimming, playing mini golf, going down the Alpine Slide, making and using marshmallow guns, playing some Minute to Win It games, making tie-dyed shirts, and eating.  Asher had a really bad ear infection before we left on this little trip and even though he had started on antibiotics - he still had a night where he would not stop crying.  Hours of crying in the middle of the night is enough to have me in tears!  Thankfully he didn't repeat that the next night although he did have a hard time sleeping the whole time.   We were apparently  too busy having fun for me to remember to take pictures!

First Day of 1st Grade

Shortly after we got back to Colorado Springs, it was already time to start school again!  Eliza was excited to go back to school and has a great teacher with Mrs. Wade.  Her class is small again (16 kids!) and a few of them she knew from the year before.
