A birthday party in the fish tank

On his actual 38th birthday, Mike was working - and his coworkers took him out to a mexican restaurant...which predictably involved a sombrero...

But then the next weekend, he got to take a dive in the Denver Aquarium.  It was so much fun watching him through the glass.

Big boy bed time

Will has decided that it's super fun to pole vault out of the crib multiple times per night, so we are making the sooner-than-I-wanted transition to his toddler bed. 
Taking apart the crib for the last time!
Will is SHOCKED!
Oh man, cross your fingers for us.

A Day of Finn

For no reason whatsoever, we decided to have a day where we'd just do nothing but what Finn wanted. 

We kicked things off with The Muppet Movie with popcorn AND candy followed by picking any toy he wanted at GrandRabbits. Next up?  A trip to the Mini Cooper dealership, where we looked at EVERY SINGLE car in the lot, one by one. 

 And then it was time for Chick-Fil-A, his favorite place to eat...because it has a playplace.  

 Followed by ice cream, of course!

Snowy days

This has been such a mild winter so far, and I don't mind it one bit!  It makes the big snow storms so much more fun with they are infrequent because it becomes less of a hassle and more of a fun time.  It's so much fun to get out in the snow, but Will H A T E S to put things on that make his body, ya know, WARM.  This includes heavy jackets, hats, boots, and gloves.  This means that it usually takes us about 30 minutes to get outside while he takes the things off that I'm putting on him, and then we're outside for about 15 minutes before he insists on taking his gloves off and then his hands are freezing and then he starts crying.  Despite all of this, those 15 minutes seem worth it :) 
Snowy, but sunny - the best thing about Colorado winters
