Last minute dinner party… with Kallie!

March 25, 2010

Congratulations to Lance and Jacie, what a beautiful baby girl!  Kallie was born a premie but you wouldn’t be able to tell it now at about 2 months old.  Here she is smiling in her sleep.  I wonder what she’s dreaming about?

Dinner was great.  It was such a last minute thing, but sometimes those are the best!  Shoyu chicken, mac salad, rice, Jello, frozen custard sandwiches from Abbott’s… but Lana loved the blackberries the best!

But what everyone wanted most was to hold Kallie!

Even Lana wanted to get in on the action!  You’ll make a great older sis, cutie pie!

Here are all the ladies with their girls.  How sweet!

No matter how old you are, you’ll always be our babies… =)


Welcome back, Father Winter… Not!

March 24, 2010

Just when you thought Spring was here… after days of beautiful T-shirt weather… Father Winter makes one (hopefully) last grasp at squeezing you into his cold clutches!  Wet, heavy snow… yuck!

Lana couldn’t care one bit, though.  She was just glad to help shovel the walkway.

Let’s mark this occasion with some hand prints in the snow!

This day will forever be remembered.  Until the snow melts…

By the way, did I mention that we got some fake IDs at Chuck E Cheese?  We can use them to make a getaway to somewhere warmer!

On a roll…

Yet another beautiful day of weather before the snow returns tomorrow!  What to do?  Get out and have some fun of course!  Daddy stayed at home while mommy took Lana to the zoo today!  It’s a different experience everytime she goes.

This time she was a lot more interested in the animals!

I think they remind her of all the animals she sees in her books!

And they topped it off with a ride on the carousel!

Then for dinner it was off to Chuck E Cheese!  It was Lana’s first time to a Chuck E Cheese in Colorado.  This one is about 2 minutes from where we live.  How convenient!

Lana got a trip out of seeing Chuck E Cheese sing and dance!  That’s a BIG mouse!  Then it was time to have some fun!

Of all the rides and things to do, this funny little girl liked the free slide the best!

So with a full tummy and a handful of leftover tokens we went home happy and ready to dream about another wonderful day!

Houston, we have lift off…

Another beautiful day in Colorado and we had to take advantage of it!  After our weekly dimsum lunch and Baskin Robins ice cream scoops, we decided to walk on over to the nearby park and play in the playground.  It was pretty empty at first but started to get more crowded as time went on (crowded here is something like 3 or 4 other families…).

Started off on the jungle gym… Then, wait… what is that?  Up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s…


It’s… A Disney princess kite!!!  Woohoo!

After daddy got it up…

Lana had it all under control…


What an awesome day at the park!  Lana got a kick out of the kite!  And mommy and daddy got a kick out of watching Lana!

After the park Lana wasn’t ready to settle down at home, so we went for a bike ride!

This is the BEST bike seat ever.  I get to talk and sing with Lana while we ride around town!  We will all sleep well tonight!

Fun Day at the Children’s Museum!

March 20, 2010

After yesterday’s snow-in we just had to get out and do something today!  Did you know that this week is national bubble week?  To celebrate, we went to the Children’s Museum in Denver!

They  have all kinds of activities for all ages!  Lana loved going up and down all the stairs and slides…

…reap the bounty from the garden…

…learn about shapes…

…they even had a full size firetruck!

We got to ride along on an adventure…

Even daddy!

Where are we going, cutie pie?

Then it was off to celebrate bubble week!  They gave everyone a turn to see who could make the biggest bubbles!

After our turn we watched the rest of the show…

And Lana decided she wanted to make it as interactive as possible!  How DO you get stuck inside a bubble?
