Sox lose and Ace drops into a post-game catatonic state.

Today we wore our "Be Good, Be Strong" shirts in support of Mommy's cousin Jennie, who runs the Boston Marathon every year in memory of her sisters, Molly and Mary, and brother John. Although we can't run along side her, we can send the strength and beauty of the Red Rocks in Roxborough State Park to help her put one foot in front of the other on April 21st.

On Monday, the thermometer hit 70° and we played in t-shirts.
On Tuesday, temps dropped to 25° and it snowed.
On Thursday, we were back to 66°.
Friday saw 19° and more snow.
Today, we made it back to 60°, the snow all melted, and we enjoyed a bike ride to the park. We bundled up the Bundle of Joy in his winter jacket, just to be safe.

We took an unusual afternoon trip to the Children's Museum, but crowds were as bad as always.
We did find a bit of respite in the 4-and-Younger section, where Ace always gets a kick out of listening to the babbling brook sounds that play through these speakers when someone walks over the "bridge."

Daddy took the morning off to attend Chase's parent teacher conference (fortunately his teachers convinced us that Chase is a normal 4 year old). Afterwards, we had a bit of time before Daddy needed to go to work, so we ventured over to one of Ace's favorite parks and reenacted the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, except Mommy's Romeos were on the balcony, instead of on the ground.

After 20 minutes of hemming and hawing about whether or not tumbling class looked fun, Chase finally decided to join in. He had a great time practicing walking on the high beam, the bar, climbing ladders, and doing somersaults. Needless to say he's excited about next week's class.

The highlight of the day was clearly having Ace's friend Erinn over for a pre-St. Patrick's Day dinner.
However, earlier in the day, The Critter accompanied Daddy to SOAR, where we set up a display of the fabulous nonfiction books Daddy's second graders just wrote. Ace was particularly interested in the books about cats (no surprise there!).

We're currently at about a 50% success rate of getting Chase to stay in bed after lights out. The rest of the time, the door slowly opens and he announces that there's JUST ONE THING he needs to talk to someone about.
It's never just one thing...

With Denver weather the way it is, we can't tell when winter will officially transition into spring. A mini snowstorm last night left us with a few inches of the white stuff, and we took advantage with an hour of great sledding. By late afternoon, the snow was essentially gone, and we were outside playing warm-weather games.
