Denver Museum of Nature and Science

On day 2 of our "staycation" with Grammy and Papa they took us to the Denver Science Museum. We have been before but they had not, so the kids were anxious to show them all of their favorite things. We ended up getting a family membership because with our big crew it was worth it! So now we will be able to go again. The kids had a great time. The highlights of the visit were probably the new children's area where they could touch and learn about things as well as the space area. The T-Rex cafe and the gift shop were also a hit!

Everyone staring at something..lol

The girls with the world.

Mr. Henry.

Trying to see what parts of their bodies have the most heat.

Even daddy was intrigued.

Trying to touch all the rocks.


Sadie comparing what they feel like.

The girls looking at gold.

Henry reading about the gold.

The brothers playing together in the toddler area.

Henry loved chasing after Colby in a circle.

"Mommy, where is my brother??"


"Oh, I found him!!!"

Trying to get the fishy.

They were both looking at something, not sure what!

Santa's Workshop (Part 2)

While we were at Santa's Workshop the first time this summer, Hallie decided to ask Santa for a pet baby bunny- before she finished her conversation, Santa told her that a lot of little girls have been asking for bunnies this year and he just hopes that the little girls don't cut the bunny's feet off and make good luck charms out of them. OMG!!!! My sister-in-law and I were in disbelief and all the kids seemed somewhat horrified by this comment- as they should have been. When we got home we emailed Santa's Workshop and told them what had happened and what Santa said- he was also quite chatty telling my sister-in-law not to let her kids get dehydrated while visiting, and went on about that. Anyways, one of the managers emailed back and was very apologetic and said sometimes when they aren't busy Santa can get chatty but there was no excuse for what he said to my daughter. He assured us they would be talking to him and letting him know that his job will be on the line if anything like that were to happen again. They also let us come back for free since we had a bad experience. Since our company had to go home we decided to take Grammy and Papa along- seniors get in free everyday! Its great having Grammy and Papa come along, especially because they go on the rides with the kids!! Here are some pictures from this fun day!






Big boy!

Someone forgot to tell Papa he is too big for this ride.

Hallie kept falling on Sadie so she was trying to hold on tight to the other side.

Henry thought he was a big boy driving this car!


Colby suffered with his long legs to be able to ride this with his baby brother.



Cute girl.

Barely made the cut off for this, so her last year riding the boats.
