Ode to a scared kid
We have been having fun here at my parents house in Colorado. I am actively looking for a house for us to rent from my parents -and then hopefully own when Dave gets a full time job. It is fun but exhausting. It is also kinda sad to get your hopes up for a house and then have the deal fall through. We've got our teeth on a pretty good house and I'm excited so we will see how it goes.
I love Colorado because there are so many fun things to do. The kids and I fill our days with trips to the rec center pool or to the cool new park right by my parents house. The other day we even found an awesome little 1860's farm/museum. AND IT WAS FREE! I was excited to go with Jensen because he is getting so good at naming his animals and making their sounds.
We got there (and of course the camera batteries died) but Jensen pretty much looked like this the whole time.

We didn't stay that long:)
We will try again soon. Hopefully he won't be as scared. Next time.

We also put our little climber into gymnastics. SO FUN! It is a parent tot class so I get to go around with him and do all the little activities. He loves it. Andi it helps home sleep better and he even behaves a bit more the rest of the week. So high five on gymnastics.

I got my hair cut really short and body wave permed. It is something I've wanted to do for a while but was always to chicken. I think it turned out pretty good and it is easy to take care of so- five points to me:) I'll post pics of my hairdo later.

I loved your haircut when I saw it! And yay for gymnastics...what a great way to let him get out some of that energy. Good luck with the house search!

Dan, we have to get together for a playdate. I'm staying at my mom's right now too. And we play at Falcon Park all of the time, and go to the pool. When are you available? Maybe we could invite Heidi and Lacey. Let me know. I'm at 303.683.3968. Talk to you soon.

Gynmastics is perfect for little kids. Sam loves his class too! BTW that pictures is a guy named Gaurd Young, he was an aquantiance of mine at BYU. He went on to win Silver at the last olympics.
