The day after we laid sod we took a last trip out to Colorado to visit family before the new baby. Our GAC (Great-Aunt Carol) came from Texas, and we decided a few months ago that since we couldn't go to Vail this year (I'll probably be in labor during that time), that we'd meet in CO then for a visit in June. We had such a great time. We had good times playing at the retirement community Lincoln Meadows where my Grams lives now. James also came up with a new nickname for my dad, and he is now known as Boompa to James. He really loves grandpas!

We were able to see my parents horse, Cinnamon. James loves horses right now too, so when he got to sit up on her, his face just beamed.
Another day we visited the museum called Wildlife Experience, and it has a mix of automated and stuffed animals in a museum type setting. Really neat. Turns out too that James was super afraid of the automated alligator. We had to reassure him that it wasn't real, but he did NOT want to be put down to walk near that thing, though I can't blame him. They had a neat "dig" interactive display where you could dig up bones from the past.
Finally there was an area that kids could dress up costumes of different animals and then play and do puzzles and such. I loved this place, too bad we don't live closer or I'd get a season pass. It was a great place to take an active and curious little boy.
