This morning

It was pouring rain last night when we went to bed. When I got up in the middle of the night with Dallin I thought, that's nice the rain stopped... Do you see the white on top of the roof!?!

My parents gave us a trampoline this last Christmas. The kids were really excited about it, but we had to wait until all the snow melted before we could set it up. So it just sat in our garage for months. Finally, by the end of March, all the snow had melted and it was warmer. The boys were so excited and jumped everyday. This was the following weekend:

And it looked like that a couple more times. But I must say I'm glad we're not in Castle Rock right now. It's been raining constantly for the past three days, but in Castle Rock it's been snow! The news said it was more than 20 inches! Yuck! Suddenly, the street looking like a little river doesn't seem like a big deal.

Our little monkey

Caden and Dallin have never been big climbers, as you may recall. As for Andrew, we can't get him to stop. I try to keep everything off the kitchen table or else he's constantly up there! Now he's figured out he can push a chair just about anywhere he wants to go.

This one has scared me several times! How that highchair doesn't topple with 30 lbs on the tray is beyond me!

Andrew can say 4 words, mama, dada, up and dog. He can, but he really only says dog. He loves dogs. He wants to see Tinkerbell first thing in the morning. He smothers her with loves and kisses. He has learned how to be soft most of the time, so she puts up with him most of the time. In fact, she's learned there are advantages to having a baby for a best friend. The other day while I was in the bathroom, Andrew found the fig newtons in the pantry, and proceeded to feed Tinkerbell, one by one, half of the package before I came back! He's done it with pretzels and crackers too. Lucky dog.

Steve's sister and family came up from Denver today. I tried to think of something to do really unique to Fort Collins, and the only thing I could think of is Swetsville Zoo. The name is misleading because it's not a zoo. It's a ton of scrap metal made into really fun, quirky sculptures. And best of all, it's free! It was beautiful weather today and the boys had a great time. So the next time you're in Fort Collins, be sure to check it out. You'd be hard pressed to find anything like it somewhere else!
