Luke walked for the first mile!! We kind of thought he could do it as he does nothing but run all day long. Dewey wore the back back to carry him once he got tired. And I pushed Kolby in the stroller. He was happy as can be to just look around at everything.
Kolby has not quite learned "smile when there is a camera in front of you" but with the zillion pictures I take I'm sure it won't be long.

"Spain divided the New World into three sections. The section now known as Central America was controlled by Antigua. Located in the Panchoy valley, the city was founded in 1541, after the destruction of Ciudad Vieja, by an enormous mudslide from the Agua Volcano.
Antigua was one of the first cities in the New World to use the Spanish grid design in the layout of the streets. Today, Antigua retains its original charm and still has cobble stones streets and Spanish Colonial architecture.
As the capital of Guatemala, Antigua was destroyed by the earthquake of Santa Marta in 1773. At that point, the government moved the capital to Guatemala City, where it is today. "
Victor took us to the top of a hill where we hiked a short distance to a stunning overlook of the valley. Spain built a huge cross on the hill where it could be seen from far away. We were told they wanted to make sure everyone knew they were Christians. For this reason they also built numerous cathedrals. Some of which are still standing and in use.
On our last flight Kolby finally fell asleep, he pretty much slept the whole flight. We landed in Las Vegas at 1am (which is 2am Utah time). My amazing hubby drove us three hours to get home. Kolby and I sorta slept the whole time. We arrived safe and sound at home about 5am.

Can you tell in the picture that Luke is the happiest kid around. He LOVES riding our horses. He had the biggest smile on his face while riding with Dewey. He was laughing and did not want to stop riding.
He is getting pretty good at sitting in the saddle and holding on to the reins. Dewey still holds on to whichever horse he is riding and walks them around the round pen. Luke looks so small sitting in the saddle I'm sure he if was not making his "cowboy" noises the horses would not even know he was there. I'm pretty sure it won't be long before Luke is riding by himself.

We took the boys to a park in town, they had a blast playing on the slides and running around.
Dewey spent the afternoon cooking dinner for us and grandma and grandpa. Our nephew Jerome, his girlfriend Nikki and her daughter Riley stopped by on their way through town. We all tried flying kites in the backyard. It was a crack up, kites are no match for our Cedar City wind. They stayed in the air for all of a few minutes before doing a nose dive.
We had a very nice dinner, then grandma gave the boys a bath so I could relax. She even got Kolby to sleep by rocking him.
It was a perfect day spent with my family. My hubby was amazing, he went to a lot of effort to make it a special day for me.

Kolby has not really got into the swing of things yet. The sleeping at night part is not coming easy for him. I'm sure it will just take some time for him to get used to everything that is new and different in his life. I just hope I can keep it up running on fumes until he does :)
He's wonderful during the day. He is just a happy funny little guy. He runs around the house and yard chasing after Luke. He laughs and smiles at every one he meets. And he gives the BEST hugs, he wraps his little arms around your neck and squeezes. I really am just in awe that he is my son.

Well we are all slightly more rested. The boys only woke up 5 or 6 times last night. Yesterday we drove to St George, Aunt Becca Uncle Dell, Steve and Sammie all came down. We went out to eat to celebrate Aunt Becca's birthday tomorrow, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I'm sure those of you that have tried it know that taking two toddlers out to eat is not the most relaxing thing in the world. :) Both boys LOVED swimming in the pool, they had so much fun splashing around with dad and uncle Steve helping them.
