We usually stay in Josh's hometown, but this time we stayed in a city about an hour away so we could spend lots of time with his mom, who is receiving treatment at the hospital there. She is in good spirits and being well cared for by the wonderful hospital staff and many friends and family members who stopped by for visits. Our time in Colorado also included celebrating our nephew's eighth birthday, the first year we've gotten to celebrate in person with him.

We are grateful to have been able to spend this time with our family.
