La Junta trip

We took a trip to La Junta the weekend of April 18. We wished were were able to stay longer, but it was good to see the Freidenberger family. Xavier was able to meet his Grandpa Freidenberger, Great Grandpa and Grandma Freidenberger, and Great Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Harold. We just wish the drive wasn't so long. It seems like it increased in length with two kids.
Grandpa Freidenberger was trying to teach Xavier how to crawl Xavier is the first boy on the Freidenberger side since his grandpa was born 60 years ago. Great Grandpa Poppy was getting to know his first grandson.

Madelyn was sacked out on her blow-up bed
One of Madelyn's favorite activities is to have Daddy swing her by her feet. The camera wasn't fast enough but we were trying to get the look on her face. She has a face of pure terror, but as soon as Daddy stops she begs for more.
Licking the beaters at Grandma's house--the cream cheese layer of a lemon strata pie-yum!
