We are sooooo ready for Mommy's return!
We've had three fun days as Mommy has been back east visiting Ace's newest cousins, and have stayed busy. Nanna and Papa's trip extended until Saturday night (thanks for visiting us!), so they made the separation from Mommy a little easier.
But now we are ready for her return. Ace went to bed early and can't wait to wake up tomorrow and see his favorite person in the world!

We enjoyed Nanna and Papa's final day in Denver by sticking close to home, including a trip to the Purple Mountains playground. We had such a great week that saying goodbye tonight was difficult, but we look forward to seeing them again in Maine soon.

We braved a true Denver-area landmark tonight, venturing into the infamous Casa Bonita.
We had the best seats in the house with a pool-side view of the cliff diver! We also watched a puppet show & shoot-out, and went through Black Bart's Cave -- an in-house haunted house! The food may have been virtually in edible, but the experience was certainly one of a kind.
(Google the Casa Bonita episode of South Park if you need an accurate representation of the magic!)

Daddy took the day off and the whole family ventured up to Rocky Mountain National Park. Ace did some rock climbing and we all enjoyed spectacular views of the mountains, a freak snowstorm (!) and more elk than you can shake an antler at. A fun adventure for all!

Mommy dropped Ace off at SOAR this afternoon so he could show his support for daddy's school. First, we enjoyed a fundraiser concert by Night Oblivion, SOAR's performing drum group students, who played an hour of West African music.
Then we headed to Panda Express, where a cut of tonight's profits were going to be donated back to SOAR. The highlight for Ace, however, was just getting to run around outside the restaurant with Caleb.

Mr. Popular attended two birthday parties in two days this weekend. Mommy took him to yesterday's and Daddy was on duty for today's. In addition to exhausting himself in the bouncy houses, Ace also ate and enjoyed an entire piece of pizza; notable because he usually only wants the crust. (Friend Owen was there to lend moral support.)

One of the joys of living in Stapleton has been the olde timey experience of heading outside and running into a gaggle of neighborhood kids to play (and make funny faces) with. We hope that we end up in a community in Maine where Ace can find similar companionship.

We were a bit surprised to find 4 inches of snow on the ground this morning, but most of it melted by late afternoon, and it gave The Critter one more chance to throw snowballs, make a snowman, get pulled around the courtyard in his (duct tape repaired) sled, and make snow angels!

A few days ago, we made our weekly trip to Home Depot. I bought some ant killer, but sold it to the Critter as spray that "scares the ants away." Ever since then, he has been highly enthusiastic about using it, even though we don't really have any current ant problems.
Tonight, after I insisted that we didn't need to use the spray, he took matters into his own hands and decided to blow the ants away. At least all his hot air was finally being put to good use!
