We went to Colorado Springs to watch Dennis, my "little brother" play football. He did an awesome job. I lost track of how many tackles he made.
As you can tell he had a lot of fans there. My parents, uncles, cousins, and grandparents all came to cheer him on. We had a great time.

Mike and I were able to take a 10 day trip to Canada, Boston, Newport, and New York.  It was great to spend time together and have a break from work.  We did lots of sight seeing, visiting friends and family, and of course we made time for shopping.  Unfortunately, we don't have any trips planned until we head to Texas in a couple of months.  So for now we are back to the normal routine of life: work, eat, workout, watch tv, playing with our dog, and hanging out with friends and family.
We started our trip in Canada visiting Mike's family.  We had a great time spending time with his aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.
From there we headed to Boston.  Of course, we attended a Red Sox game at Fenway park.  We had gone to a game before when we were dating, but you can never go to Fenway park enough.  The fans there are great!

In Boston we went on a duck tour.  This is what we rode around in.  Not only did it take us on the road; it also goes in the water.  It was pretty cool, not to mention the tour guide was wearing a duck hat.
Mike and I were to Newport, Rhode Island for two days.  We lived there the first summer we were married.  We took a bike ride around Ocean Drive and toured the mansions.  Mike was able to meet up with some of his baseball coaches/managers from when he played summer ball there.

I loved going to New York and seeing the Statue of Liberty.  This was my first time to NYC and I absolutely loved it.

Downtown New York.  If you can't tell it is raining; however the streets were still packed with people quickly walking to their destination.
Waiting for the subway to take us to Yankee Stadium.  This was the one downfall of the trip.  The game got rained out and we really wanted to see the game in their old stadium.
