Never Take A Toddler To IKEA

Never take a toddler to Ikea

No matter how much you might think you need a few things

for the new house,

it's just not worth it!

Museum, Maya, Mayhem

One of our favorite Denver destinations is the Museum

I was especially excited to go this time

because they had a Maya exhibit.
 It was very hands on
 with puzzles, and activities for the kids

including a computer that helped us write our names
 and figure out or birth dates on the Mayan calendar.

They've also added a new, permanent exhibit for toddlers

where Babycakes could rampage

without his mama constantly following him and dragging him off the exhibits!

(Yes, this piece was especially climb worthy to toddlers!)

One of our pit stops was a really fun

McDonald's playground
Where the girls gave a little concert.

There were only a few people there at the time

and watching their expressions

as my ladies danced was hysterical!

Colorado Bound

We took our time

and slowly

with many


pit stops

to run

and climb

and yell

and many


viewings of The Wiggles

we made our way to Colorado.

Get Outa Town!

We usually head to Colorado to visit Nana and Papa

right after "school" gets out in May.

This year we got a bit distracted

by life.

I was really hoping we could work it out

so Hubs could come too,

but since he took a week off for moving,

he really can't justify another so soon,

so he's holding down the fort

while I take the chaos on the road!

Colorado, here we come!

Hit The Beach!

This is rapidly becoming our go-to spot
 for a fun family splash.
 The water is shallow enough for the big kids walk across the river
 and the little ones play in the sand and shallow water.
Free, Fun, Wet, Cool.

What else could you ask for?

Four Days!

We got an offer on our house!

Four days!

That's how long we had it listed!

Four days!

We're kinda mostly unpacked.

I think we're gonna call our new town Whereville.

We used to live in a town we affectionately referred to as Whoville,

because it was so very Whoville like.

This town has a bit of Who-ishness,

but we've found that when we tell

friends where we're moving,

they say

"Where is that?"

Even if they've lived near it their whole lives!

So, welcome to Whereville!

I've reached the unpacking stage

where I'm considering just taking

 the last boxes and tossing them straight into the trash bin.

Except we don't actually have a trash bin yet.

And we are collecting trash at an astounding rate.

I peek into a box

decide I don't want to deal with the contents

and go sit on the couch.

The End
