Great-Grandma Powers

Chris' great-grandmother Alberta Powers passed away on October 17th, at the age of 92. She lived a very full, long life and was able to live to see the 5 generation legacy of her family and life well lived. Amelia met Grandma Powers in May when she was 2 months old, and we are so thankful to have had that special memory of Amelia and her great, great grandmother together. We made a quick trip to Missouri for the funeral and to celebrate the rich, full life of Grandma Powers.

Aunt Kim's Visit to Denver

We were so lucky to have Chris' sister Kim come to Denver over her fall break! We enjoyed lots of fun memories with Amelia and showing off our Denver favorites - Duffey Roll, Park Burger - you know, all the great eats!

Aunt Kim came to swim lessons!

We went to visit Amelia's 2nd cousin Noah - Chris' cousin Andrew and wife Melissa had baby Noah in September. We're looking forward to being together again at Christmas in Kansas City!

Swim Lessons

Spending my years growing up in the swimming pool, I was quick to sign Amelia up for swim lessons. We had a great time playing and singing with other babies and parents, and Amelia is a big fan of splashing and drinking pool water. 

This was dad teaching how to blow bubbles - Amelia decided she would drink the pool water instead.

Intently listening to directions from the teacher - they both look very concerned with getting the directions correct.
