2011 LPGA Women's Open at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs

Well, Bob and I got to spend an entire week in Colorado Springs and enjoy watching the LPGA women play the US Open tournament. What a time we had. The women were amazing. I was so surprized that so many were really tiny and they could hit the ball a loooong way!  I took tons of pictures and got a lot of autographs, but my most memorable moment was seeing Annika Sorenstam and then getting her autograph and Bob and I got our picture taken with her. I was so excited that my hands were shaking afterwards. I guess knowing that she is the greatest woman golfer of all time was what shook me up so much.
It was so great. And then we met a lot of great people while watching the tournament and sometimes wishing I could hit the ball like the pros. But overall, the experience we had was a one of a kind.

Babysitting Avery and Madi

It was so much fun babysitting Avery and Madi for Brian and Rachel when they went to Colorado Springs for Brian to perform a wedding. They left on Friday afternoon the 1st of July and came back on the evening of the 2nd. Grandpa Bob and I had a blast and I took some adorable pictures.
