Last Wednesday the couple was honored for the work they do at home. The mother and father of seven were chosen by a local selection committee as "Colorado Parents of the Year."
Their children range in age from 4 to 17 years-old.
The Davenports were invited to New York in July with four other finalists from across the country to receive the National Level Parenting Award by the National Parents' Day Council.
Parents' Day was adopted by the U. S. Congress in 1994 and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.
The Parents' Day Council is a project of the Ambassadors for Peace of Colorado.
