On Monday morning Blaiden and I headed into Alamosa to go see Fred's mom. It was a holiday so she was at home. It was great to see her and she was the only one at her house so it was very relaxed. I was so comfortable that Margaret or I didn't even take any photos (whoops). Blaiden had a great time because there was another cat there and he loved chasing it throughout the house. He even got to go outside and look around for the cat and played with the 5 dogs there. Right before we left Timmy and his grandma came by to see us. It was a great morning and Blaiden had a fun time seeing his grandma.
After Blaiden's nap we went out to let him have a ride on the tractor with my dad. Blaiden had a blast! G-Pa let him drive and Blaiden took the wheel and didn't want anyone else to touch it. He played with the horn, lights, blinkers, and even the GPS. When we finished the field I took a few pictures.
That night Jed and his family and Thad came out to the house for dinner. It was a very relaxed day and I think Blaiden had a great time.
Our nights started to get a little rough and Blaiden wasn't sleeping well. It happens every time we go to Colorado the air is so dry it makes his nose get stuffy and sleeping is always an issue. Tuesday we planned on going up to Creede early but Blaiden needed a good nap so we waited until after his nap to head out. That afternoon we hung out with all of Fred's family. Margaret even got to come up to see Blaiden again. He had a great time seeing all the relatives and being the center of attention. Unlike the Larsen's he is the only kid around and I think he enjoys this just as much. We ended the night going out to dinner with Fred's dad. It was great to see everyone.
One of Blaiden's favorite things was to play peek-a-boo with Robert, and drinking out of his Great Grandma's water bottle.
