A cold morning and drive to Denver

We woke up to a blistery cold morning. My phone said it was 27 degrees - which is what it felt like. The kids woke up early and cold this morning and crawled into bed with me. Early meaning Evie at 4:45 and Ethan at 5:15...ouch. They snuggled up and quickly fell back asleep. Once the sun came up we got ourselves ready for our drive to Denver, which is about 2 1/2 hours. It's an exciting day...we get to pick up daddy from the airport. He has been in Las Vegas at the Interbike trade show the past few days. (He said it was 100 degrees there).

Evie saw the snow from the breakfast table and asked if she could go outside. I told her it was going to be cold but of course she could go out.
They loved eating the snow even though it was cold.

The frozen bird bath was perfect for her Princess Jasmine doll to ice skate on.

We started our drive to was snowing pretty good by the time we arrived in Conifer. It was a good potty break stop and a chance to grab a juice for me - Jamba Juice is one of my favorite treats.

This is the car we pulled up next to in the parking lot. It makes me cold just looking at it.

The kids shared a doughnut...I'm not sure why I gave them a ball of sugar before continuing our drive but they did great in the car. They were watching the movie 'A bugs life' and were pretty entertained. Every so often Evie would say ' wow, look at all that snow'

Say cheese...Ethan is busy licking chocolate from his hands.

We arrived in Denver and went straight to the Aquarium. We were going to check into our hotel first but it was too early.

Ethan is sizing up a Moray Eel.

Evie found a rainbow reflection on the ground and had fun rolling around in it. The next time I looked at her she was off playing with out her glittery shoes - they were hanging out in the rainbow.

Evie got to touch the stingray. She was pretty proud of herself.

After we left the Aquarium we checked into the hotel, grabbed lunch and a nap. In the evening we mostly played in the hotel room. It was raining and chilly outside. We picked up Joel around 8:30pm. Ethan took a late nap so he was able to hang on until we got back to the hotel to sleep... Evie was asleep by the time we left the airport.

  1. Holy cow, so much snow! It's only September! Guess it doesn't matter when you're 7000+ feet higher in the atmosphere than we are (we're 1200, you're 8000+). It's in the 60s/70s here (but chillier in the morning).

    Not much new! We miss you!
