Pool Day

SO I am ALMOST caught up from my dumb blogger app deleting all my posts! Have I vented about this yet?! So annoying. Anyway, A week and a half ago we got to enjoy a pool day with my friend, Stephanie and Lucas' buddy, Gavin. It really made me wish we had a community pool. Gracelyn loved being in her floatie just kicking her little legs and Lucas swam like a little fish. Her pool even had a little splash pad and a kiddie pool! SUCH a fun morning. I am so, so sad that Stephanie's family is moving to England this weekend. Lucas talks about Gavin daily and wants to pray for him many nights. It's hard to explain to him that he won't see Gavin for a couple years! :( So thankful for our friendship, Stephanie!! Thanks for letting us enjoy your pool with you guys last week! We will miss you and are praying for you guys!

Jack Johnson Date Night

I was SOOOO excited when I heard Jack Johnson was going to be in Colorado! We got tickets and I looked forward to it all summer. It was a super fun date night with a LOT of good people watching but Jack Johnson was disappointing. I saw him back in Chicago maybe in 2005? He was awesome, but this time was lame. Jason and I had fun dancing and hanging out way past my bedtime (ha!). Still so glad we went and had a great date night together.

Library Concert - 7/20/17

What a fun morning we had at the library! Katherine Dines performed her kids concert Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta Music. I was a little apprehensive to take Lucas since he doesn't always do well in large crowds, he gets overstimulated and I can't get him back but he did AWESOME! He listened so well and enjoyed the music and interaction. And he loved seeing his friend, Addi, too! So glad we decided to go! Gracelyn liked it too, she was so cute clapping alone.

Food Truck Night

Monday night we went to the neighboring neighborhoods Food Truck Night. Considering we don't have an HOA or "neighborhood" per se, it was fun to be able to go to something SUPER close and enjoy a fun night out. They had three food trucks to choose from one which was an ice cream truck. Lucas had fun playing at the playground for almost an hour (Gracelyn on the swing, of course) then we finished off the night taking Cooper for a walk around the path. Love our spontaneous nights with our family! Cooper especially loves when he can be included.

On a Search for Prairie Dogs!

While watching Wild Kratts with Lucas, I got the idea to take Lucas and Gracelyn to see some prairie dogs the other day. I didn't take into account that it was about 95 degrees and not a cloud in sight but we had a lot of fun on our walk. Lucas thought it was fun for him to spot them on his own and tip toe up to them to see how close he could get. I love how much he loves animals! It was also fun because we went behind our old apartment so there were tons of memories flooding in on our walk. My, how life has changed since we lived there! Afterwards we went to the park to swing and climb. This girl will swing all day long. No matter how long I let her swing she cries when I take her out.
He wanted to hold her hand.

Dinos at the ZOO!

I have already blogged about this a couple weeks ago but I was using the blogger app and it deleted anything I wrote about using the app. (literally HOURS of time wasted...I am not a happy girl!)

We went to the zoo on 4th of July and had a blast! They just opened the Dino exhibit a few days before. I highly recommend it if you have any dinosaur loving kids like Lucas! Just a little something to add to the zoo of animals.
