What to do when family is in town...

I ponder that every time people come to visit us.  Compared to the SMALL town in Iowa I am from, there should be TONS of things to do out here in Colorado...but I can never figure out the really good things.  Plus a lot of times I rule out anything over an hour away and my parents hate traffic.
A friend told me that when people visit her it usually revolves around shopping and eating.  So, I took her advice.  Over the course of the 3 1/2 days my parents were here we went to Target, Kohls, Ross, Marshalls, Goodwill, Garage sales, Coldstone, Starbucks and Golden Corral. FUN.
And I had someone to keep Jay occupied while I shopped a bit.
Guys hate Kohls. It's probably because once we get in there they know it will take us forever to finish shopping. We left Jay with grandpa to sleep in the car. When he didn't sleep and we didn't answer our cell phones he came inside and drove Jay around in a cart...for about a 1/2 hour till he found us:( Jay seemed to have fun, but grandpa did NOT go shopping with us the next day:)
Here is one of our goodwill purchases. I hope he gets $3.99 worth of fun out of it:)

We also went to the Dam Store and Tower.
This picture is hilarious.

We also hung out a bunch.
I love this video because it shows how long Jay will really sit with a book. He also does a cheezy smile for the camera with his nose scrunched up.

Jay will enjoy watching this video over and over.
