Naked. Mole. Rat.
Today we took our weekly field trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Props to our awesome zoo on the side of the mountain. It rocks. Really rocks. Anyhow, we went. We saw. And yes, they are naked. The mole rats, that is.
Every summer the zoo has a temporary exhibit of some rare animal. One summer it was giant fruit bats. We skipped that one. I can’t imagine why. Another summer there was a butterfly house set up. Now that was cool. I can hang with butterflies. Giant fruit bats, no thanks.
We spent a nice afternoon hanging out together, checking out the animals and having a blast along the way.
Have a great Tuesday evening,
We spent the last weekend camping in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area. This gorgeous area is located at 10,300 feet and is just north of Nederland (and about 2 1/2 hours from our house). We camped with our good friends and had a blast!!!! We did two awesome hikes, played in the lake, had a snowball fight, ate well and enjoyed time just hanging out with friends. I took 120 pictures so I put some of them into a slideshow. Off to shower and get some sleep.
Have a great week!
Whizzing and Mining
No this post isn’t about my children’s bathroom habits or their fingers conveniently placed up their noses. Nope. We are talking about how this week is whizzing past and taking a very interesting trip to the Mining Museum.
Monday we decorated shoe boxes that we had
stacking up to the ceiling laying around. The kids love to keep stuff. Read: my kids are hoarders. Seriously. Hoarders. Someone in this house might even have a price-tag collection. I will never say who. Never. Anyway, they had fun and stayed busy for a long time decorating their very own box. Who doesn’t love a box?
Before and After
This is Paige before the fall.
One faceplant, a trip to Emergicare, five stitches, bruises and no skin left on the nose later…..
Believe it or not, we had a great trip to the mountains this week. On our last night in Breck, we decided to head into town for a yummy dinner. After dinner, as we were waiting for the shuttle, the kids were playing and jumping off a rock ledge by the riverwalk. Paige was leaning over the ledge checking out some flowers and fell about 3 feet down face first. Poor thing. She was very brave. Mommy, not so much.
Please pass the Tylenol. For Paige, of course.
The kids and I have been hanging out all week in Breckenridge with my parents, my SIL and niece and nephews. We have stayed busy hiking, playing, swimming, etc. It is so gorgeous here and I have taken a ton of pics. Enjoy the numerous pics from the beginning of our week. We are looking forward to the end of the week when Scott returns. I hope you all had an awesome 4th of July. We had a blast participating in the Breckenridge parade!
Mason turned 3!!!!!
Yesterday, Mason turned the big 3. He is still pretty sure that he is 2 but we are working on him. Happy Birthday to our sweet boy! When he woke up this morning I asked his what the best party of his birthday was and his response was….the candles. Easy to please 🙂
