Little Baller

Ace takes a break from the hoops action at the Rec Center this morning.

You can't beat him. You can only hope to contain him.

Go Ahead and Jump!

Ace needed no Van Halen encouragement to take the leap (repeatedly) off the patio this afternoon. He even dressed for the occasion.

Through the Looking Glass

The Critter tries out a new canvas, the sliding glass door to the patio. Art, art, everywhere!

Sooper Firefighter

As Mommy made a quick foray into King Soopers, Ace and Daddy had the tremendous fortune of watching a fire engine park just feet away. As the firemen went into the store for supplies, we made a thorough inspection of their vehicle.

Twin Towers

Libraries may be about books, but Ace appreciates the fact that our new local library has a few other diversions.

After a week of school and other adventures, Ace basically barricaded himself in his rumpus room today. Hard to believe he could find anything with which to amuse himself.

Boston Boy and His Buddy

Ace and Jamey pause for a picture at the end of the school day. Apparently, Chase is already known as Boston Boy. Now he has a reputation to keep.

Walk (or crawl) the Plank

Chase went to a free trial class at Great Play today. Here the little clown practices his balance while on all fours. We will definitely be going back!

First Day of School

Ace cruises down the hallway after his first morning at Temple Emmanuel. He seemed to have fun and the only piece of info he offered without prompting was that he had a fruit bar and raisins for snack.

Gorillas in our Midst

Ace and Daddy spent a wonderful morning at the zoo, during which The Critter seemed more interested in the critters than he's ever been before. The bears, lemurs, hornbills, and gorillas all held his attention for record time (even if some of them were rather indifferent towards him).

I Love Beer!

Actually, Ace may not love the hops, but he surely got hoppin' with Grandpa & Grandma at the Stapleton Beer Fest.

"I am not a crook!"

Ace does his best presidential impersonation before exiting into the waiting aircraft.

Chase gingerly practices his baby wrangling skills with Morgan, Erinn's little sister.

Loaded up with toys and his babies, Ace shops in the Rumpus Room.

Chutes & Ladders

As Mommy's dental saga continued today, Ace played with this beaut of a fire truck at Michelle's house.

Viva Streets

A wonderful thing happened in Denver today, as the city celebrated a European style "Viva Streets" event, closing down 23rd Street from our house to City Park. We biked the length of 23rd, stopping along the way to enjoy pastries, parks, and some collaborative drumming.

Godzilla vs the Library

Ace enjoys some fictional play at the grand opening of our new neighborhood library.

"Close your eyes. I'm going to take your picture."

Ten minutes after putting The Critter to bed, we realized we had not a single shot from today. Fortunately, he agreeably posed for the post-bed photo.

All Aboard!

Jamey and Chase pause for a quick pic in Silver Plume -- the top of the line of the Georgetown Loop Railroad. Chase realizes it's good to have a buddy who appreciates locomotives as much as he does.

Yellow Bellied

Ace contemplates the color yellow during a pause in his afternoon activities.

Leg Up

Chase hops his way from one circle to the next in the magical land we call the Children's Museum.

Fork it!

Mommy had a difficult day, as she needed to have some unpleasant dental work done so, naturally, Ace was the one who got a treat. Check out this new beaut!  The collection continues to grow...

Engineered to Perfection

As Daddy worked on other projects in the garage, The Little Engineer constructed an intricate and precarious tower.  He then, of course, took great pride in "Destructo-ing" it. All in the name of quality assurance, we're sure.

Hi-Yo, Silver!

Everything's a blur as Ace rides the 1-cent steed in our local King Soopers.

He definitely got his money's worth!

Beware of Kid with Hose

Some yards have a BEWARE OF DOG sign. We need a slightly different posting.

Two Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

After a long hiatus apart, Ace and Erinn reunite. Here Erinn shows Chase how to jump on the bed.

Slinky Spring

One question -- how many minutes (remember we are talking about a two year old) do you think this science experiment entertained Ace?
