We love you, Colorado!

Our first family trip to Colorado was a success!  Here is our trip in pictures...

Arriving at the airport.  Ready to go!

One of the top 10 inventions ever.  Wheels that attach to the car seat to turn it into a roller.  Tommy loved it.

Travelin' like a boss.

"Hey ladies.  Come here often?  No?  Me neither - first time on a plane."  ; )

Loving the Colorado sunshine


Climbing like the big boys!

We went to an indoor playground and the boys loved this playhouse more than anything else.

I see you!

Who wants to take a nap when you can watch Frozen (again)?!

"I already told you, mom - I don't need a nap..."
Great view

Thank goodness for the iPad and Super Why!

Hello NYC!  Headed home.  See you soon, Colorado!

Making and Eating Spaghetti

Ben's preschool class has been learning all about pizzarias and how they work.  One of the things they talked about was what other foods you can get at a pizzaria.  They decided spaghetti was their favorite food, other than the pizza.  So today in class, they made spaghetti with their teachers.  These are a few pics from the teachers.

Can't talk - busy eating!

I have no idea what you're talking about.  What spaghetti?

Almost out of winter (please?!)

We were supposed to get another foot of snow today.  Last week we were asked to prep lessons that the kids could do on their snow day.  Thank God that didn't happen!!  Actually, we got no snow.  The best kind.  ; )  So, today was a regular day in that sense.

Tommy was sick over the weekend, so I kept him home another day.  We never get to have Mommy and Tommy days just us, so it was actually kind of nice.  We did play dough, lots of books, visited our camp friends at the office, took a (short) nap, AND - Tommy found out that he absolutely loves the old coffee maker that was sitting in our basement.  I had to bring him down there to do laundry and he didn't even want to leave!  

This weekend while Tommy was home sick with Chris, I took Ben to the Maple Sugar Festival.  He did NOT care about the sap, the boiling, the syrup - nothing could stop him from getting to that maple donut!!  Once we had our donuts he was happy to explore the farm, read the signs and watch the animals.  

C'mon Spring - you know you wanna come to Connecticut!

Checking out some sheep (llamas?  alpacas?  not really sure...)

Ready every single sign

Had to stop for a milk break on the way back to the car

Date night selfies - woohoo!
