The Lightbulb Goes On

True to form, The Little Engineer was more interested in the inner workings of his Lite Brite than actually making designs on it.

With light from our nearest star illuminating the process, The Little Engineer - using a toy ball and one of Mommy's bracelets - declares that he has made Saturn!

Action-Packed Day

As our nation took time to celebrate our greatest Presidents (you all did that today, right?) Mommy, Daddy, and the Critter got a bonus day together, and we made the most of it. After a hearty breakfast, we enjoyed a morning trip to the bowling alley (Mommy won), checked out a new playground (good climbing, huh?!), and had an afternoon at Great Play (while the grown ups went out for lunch and did errands). Love those long weekends!

Friendly Fire

Chase's great friend Jamey hosted a birthday party at the Bladium today, and Ace was more than happy to join in and cheer (when it was cake & wishes time).

Uh Oh, It's Magic!

So we're struggling a bit with The Critter's behavior these days, and it has certainly led to many intense moments.

This photo, however, (as representative as it may be of some recent tantrums) actually captures Ace at a completely calm, agreeable moment. In truth, he is simply showing of his magical ability to shoot electricity. Feel the power!

Dr. Doolittle

During our morning at the Denver Children's Museum, The Critter took time to examine this fellow. Unsurprisingly, it turned out the little critter needed a shot, which the doctor enthusiastically administered.

Winter Olympics

The snow may be melting, but that didn't stop Parker from giving his friend a speedy ride down the courtyard. Who needs a hill!?!

Look closely - there's nothing random about the placement of those M&Ms.

Mother-Son Connection

Ace learned how to play Connect Four from Mommy during an afternoon visit to Cake Crumbs. He was pretty good, for a first-timer.

Jurassic Attack

Ace and Daddy spent the morning at the science museum, where The Critter not only got his face painted - note his environmentally conscious choice of the earth - but was nearly devoured by a pretty cool, manually operated T-Rex.

Bank on It

Turns out that the local bank has quite a Lego table! Even guys in superhero hats like it.
