When we had the boys in Estes, we took them to the pool everyday. They were a little amprehensive at first, because the water was taller than them. As soon as they realized they could float and move aroung with a little help from their water wings, it was a chore getting them out of the pool. They were zooming all around like little fish.

I don't remember what we were talking about - just that I felt the need to spell the word.  Doesn't work anymore.  Kaiden can figure out the word even if it is pretty large, he works it out.  Speaking Spanish isn't even much of an option - he understands quite a few words.  Maybe if my Spanish was as good as Tito's we could get away with that more often, but its not.  We may have to resort to sign language or Pig Latin.

Top of the World

We took the boys up the tramway when we were in Estes. The views were great and we felt like we were on top of the world.

Mountain Hike

We took a picnic to Rocky Mountain National Park when we had the boys in Estes a few weeks ago. After lunch we hiked around the lake - it is 3/4 of a mile, but with all the rock climbing and back tracking and side trips the boys took it was probably over a mile.
They are throwing rocks into the stream and kept saying just one more, just one more.
Mountain goats.  I was trying to keep up with them like I was 15 or something and had scrapes and bruises to show for it the next day.
We kept hearing, look at me Gram, watch Tito as they skipped and climbed their way along.

We had a great time and they wanted to go back the next day.

One of the favorite things the boys like to do is go to the playground. There is a wonderful playground by our rec center that they especially love.

We do our best to tire them out so they will go to sleep as early as we do!

Lost Tooth

He lost his first tooth a few weeks ago.  Literally lost it.  He swallowed it in a bite of hot dog.  He was so upset because he didn't have a tooth to put under his pillow.  Instead, he wrote a note to the tooth fairy explaining what had happened.  She understood and he got his reward.
