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.

A few weeks ago the boys took part in a fund raiser for the youth.
I had to laugh at Nathan on this - his foot was bigger than the scooter!
The start of the water race - riding through sprinklers and throwing water balloons at each other.  
Kaiden won this race and came through almost dry - none of the water balloons broke on him - they just bounced off.  
Trevin made it as far as the first water balloon station and there he stayed throwing balloons.
Group picture with our youth director and his wife.  Sadly, they are moving to North Carolina to a different job.  They will be missed.

Working at the Carwash

A few weeks ago before all the rain started, the boys and Tito washed their motorcycle.
They then washed all their cars and trucks and had a great time.
