Labor Day Weekend

We had a great Labor Day weekend packed full with end of summer activities as we soak in the last bit of sunshine and weeks of being a family of three.

We kicked it off with a trip to our local outdoor aquatics park. These two boys spent the majority of the day doing the slides over and over. They loved it and had a great time. We met up with a few friends and it was great being able to catch up and see how big our little ones have grown.

By noon it was getting too hot and crowded so we left and grabbed lunch at Larkburger, one of our favorite lunch spots.

Sunday morning we packed some snacks and headed to Eldorado Canyon State Park to hike and walk around the Boulder Creek and to check out the waterfalls. The first little trail we took was just a half mile but it was perfect for BabyBird to wander and walk on his own then afterwards we ventured out on some smaller trails that were right next to the creek. We stopped many times to admire sticks, pick up rocks and flowers – it was fun letting him explore and wander around. We found a good spot towards the end to throw rocks into the creek – which is by far this kid’s favorite activity.

We took it easy Monday morning and just hanged out at home in the morning listening to music and playing. This kid loves Mumford & Sons, especially I Will Wait and Babel and we had those two songs & music videos playing on repeat all morning. He’ll take out his guitar {which is really a ukulele we got in Hawaii on our Honeymoon} and strum along with the songs. It’s pretty darn adorable listening to this little guy sing “I will wait for you…”

After nap – Daddy got the bike & chariot ready for an epic 2 hour long bike ride down to Sterns Lake and back for a 25 mile round trip on the bike. This little guy is a total champ and loves these trips with Daddy. They got to see a big freight train go by and wave to the conductor and rode home in the sunset. And they both crashed tonight and I haven’t heard a peep from the little one since we tucked him in – which is a big deal because we’ve been working on the transition to his big boy bed and his new found freedom.

    You look AMAZING! It’s getting so close for you, it’s unreal!
    I’m drooling over that water park- I’ve been craving a good swim lately. Maybe I’ll make that happen this weekend. :)
    Thanks for the motivation.
