Other May Happenings...

In other news... the kids played in their (clean) underwear:

We had a Mother's "minute" BBQ at our house

The kids and I went to the Environmental Learning Center for a scavenger hunt.

They got to catch creatures in the river:

They bore a hole through a tree to find out how old it was
After spending the whole day scavenging the kids were rewarded with a packed of seeds. The next day we headed to Home Depot to get soil to plant all our new seeds 

And not long after that we got a huge springtime storm. At first, it didn't look so bad... 

But the snow was heavy and it kept falling. We did not think any of our trees would survive. We had to go outside every couple hours to get the snow off the branches

Driving around after the storm looked like the aftermath of a tornado. Tree branches were everywhere. 

It took a few days for all the snow to melt, but then we were back outside again! One weekend we volunteered as a family to pick up trash on the Poudre river. There didn't end up being much trash to pick up...

But we still got to go to the after party at Mountain Whitewater. It was an amazing place and I don't know how we have never been there. But we have plans to visit again ASAP. 

Another day we had our neighbors over for some crafts:

We also tried another escape room....

After we didn't escape we headed over to Weldwerks brewery for some tasty beers

Josie loves the water. One day I took the kids to the indoor pool and Josie decided to put on goggles and go diving for toys. She is amazing!

And here is another video of what it is like talking with a 2 year old...
