It's been much too long since my last post, so there's lots to catch up on. First, the biggest change that happend this summer so far is we moved from our apartment into a cute little house in a much better area of town. We love it here, and especially love having a backyard for Eva to play in and a garage. Oh, how nice it is to have a garage.

You'd think by the view from our backyard that we moved to Kansas.

Eva can also cruise easily on her bikes in the driveway as opposed to playing in a parking lot at our old complex.

The second big event this summer was Eva's 2nd birthday! We filled the whole day with fun activities and we all had a blast!
After Eva woke up in the morning, Jeff put together Eva's birthday present and surprised her with it. She loved it!

We then took her to the reservior that's only about 4 miles from our house and we all had fun swimming and playing at the park.

After she woke up from her nap, she went on a sugar high with the cupcakes that we got for her.

For dinner, we went to chick-fil-A where she got to eat her chicken and fries and play in the kids play area.

From there we went straight to the county fair where she pet the dirty farm animals....
rode a horse....

and got her face painted. I think she had a fun day.

Just riding my new scooter! ( a birthday present from our neighbor)

About a week later, we had another celebration for her birthday because my mom and brother were going to be in town.

She got a snazzy wagon from her Grandpa and Mimi.

My attempt at a monkey birthday cake.

Here are just a few fun pictures of our day at the Museum of Nature and Science. It's a huge museum with lots to see and do. We didn't get to all of it, but here is a touch of what we did see. Next time we'll have to hit up the other half. Eva particularly like this man that was carrying a foam dinasaur on his back. Pretty cool.

Digging up fossils

Day trip to the Tropics

A few weeks ago the Denver Botanic Gardens had a free day, so we decided to take advantage and see what it was all about. It was cold outside with snow on the ground, and this was a wonderful escape. All the pictures are of us inside the huge conservatory located inside the gardens. They also have many gardens and paths outside of the conservatory but there is not much to see during the winter. After visiting the gardens, I have decided that when I grow up, I want to have a greenhouse of my own, so that I can escape from the cold to the tropics whenever I want. I can dream can't I?

Just a few random, cute pictures.
A diaper and boots. Love it.

Up next......a free day at the Museum of Nature and Science.
