Bowling with Friends

Last week we enjoyed a fun evening of bowling with some friends. Elise is actually pregnant as well and just a month further along than me. We had a great time talking about all that a woman experiences when she is pregnant :-) It was a wonderful time of fun and fellowship!

I was so excited to finally up my score! I don't think I have ever bowled above a 65 and I actually made it to 99 (of course it was no where near my husband's whopping 166, but it was an improvement!)

Family Pictures :-)

We recently had a two-day window of time when the whole Horsman family was together. We took advantage of it and got some family pictures! The family took us down to the farm they lived in for many years and I really enjoyed hearing lots of memories and stories from my husband's childhood.

Kyle is in TX at ALERT. He is very close to completing his training at their police academy. He is doing a great job and we are greatly looking forward to having him home again!

Jarrod (Christy's fiance) flew up for the weekend so that the whole family could have some time together before the wedding. He and Christy will be getting married on August 1st! Only 3 more weeks :-D

Dad seemed to be greatly enjoying his relaxing afternoon!

Denver, Colorado

We left from Virginia and headed for Colorado. This was by far our favorite convention and we had a wonderful time not only meeting new people, but catching up with several of Justin's friends that he had not seen for quite some time. After the convention was over we spent a few days with my good friend Elisabeth and her family. We had a great time visiting with them!

Elisabeth and her brothers took us to see the Red Rock Amphitheater. Justin and Andrew had to check out some of the rocks :-)

Justin and the guys :-D

Trying out the cowboy hats, well... everyone but Andrew. He liked the train conductor hat better!

We just had to laugh because almost every one of our pictures together are pictures of us eating! I guess that is why we thought we needed this other picture :-(

After spending a wonderful few days with the Tijerina family Justin and I spent our last day driving up to Mount Evans. The road up to Mount Evans is the highest paved road in North America. You can drive to over 14,000 feet! I have to admit that it was rather scary driving up to the top. Pictures just can't capture how sheer the drop-offs were along the road, but it was pretty amazing. The view was absolutely spectacular!

Here we are at the top of the mountain.

We even saw some mountain goats on the way up!

My post wouldn't be complete without a picture of my man in his rental car. He thought it was pretty cool!

What happened to the Horsmans?

Wow, I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post. Justin and I have been gone for most of June as we did some traveling for CollegePlus! (the company Justin works for.) We started out with the homeschool convention in Richmond, Virginia. Afterward we enjoyed a few days with Justin's aunt and uncle and then toured Washington D.C.

Justin having fun on the jetski :-)

Enjoying a quiet sunset on the boat with my man.

While in D.C. we enjoyed checking out some of the Smithsonians, the Capitol, the National Archives, the Holocaust Museum, and then the Supreme Court. It was a lot to pack into a few days, but we had a great time!

Mount Vernon was probably our favorite stop. We are watching a video series right now on John Adams and the Revolutionary war so it was really neat to be able to look into the life of George Washington and all that was going on during his life.
