We had the boys for a few days this summer when their parents went on vacation.  One of the things they always want to do is go to the Museum of Nature and Science.  They have their favorite places we have to visit each time.  One of them is the animal dioramas. 
They have a new feature - it is hard to tell but the floor has a projected river with fish. They are trying to catch them.
And of course they have to visit the discovery zone - there are so many things to do here, but I think they like the water the best.
Tito and I wanted a picture of them in front of the bears.  This statue has been there since he and I were little and visited the museum.

Shark Attack

It was shark week when we were in Fort Collins and they had this prop to use for pictures.

I think they were land sharks!

Too Big

We took the boys to the Budweiser Brewery in Fort Collins in July when the Clydesdales where here.  Trevin was disappointed that they were too big for him to ride.

The stables are the nicest I have ever seen and the horses are beautiful.  The horses' names were above the doors and the boys were going from each stall to the next saying Hi, Eric, etc.


There were also 2 of the dogs there, including a puppy.  They were asleep the entire time we were there, so the boys were a little sad about that.

We had a good time.  Trevin was getting sick, so he doesn't look too happy. 

I hate to have my picture taken and do not like to ask people to take pictures, but I think I may need to be in more or someday the boys will wonder where I was!

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.
