For the honeymoon we went to Colorado and it was just breathtaking. We stayed in a cabin in the mountains called "See Forever Cottage" and it was just beautiful. The people that owned the cabin just spoiled us, they wrote us cute little notes, brought us deserts, chocolates, and all sorts of sweet little things that meant so much.
We went horse back riding in the mountains, site seeing, hiking, and lots of shopping... :-) We had a smooth trip there and back with only 1 1/2 hour lay over in Denver, which is a HUGE airport. It wasn't bad at all, each time we had a layover it was supper time, so we just ate our supper and got on our flight. So everything went very smoothly.
My brother took care of our boys "Griffin & Kane", he did a wonderful job, even to our surprise he cleaned our house for us while we were gone. Griffin and Kane were sooooo happy to see us, and we were overjoyed to see them. Now they both have a special connections to Josh (my brother) :-)
We got back to the house 3:00 a.m. on Saturday and woke up at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, because I was real excited to get to town and change my id so I am now officially Mrs. Shaw. :-)

Mommy and Daddy tell us that they are getting married next weekend and that they are going to be gone for a whole we after.
They say that Uncle Josh is going to stay with us. That will be fun, but we are really going to miss Mommy and Daddy, they have never left us for that long before.
I do what I can though to keep Griffin busy "come on Griffin lets play"...
