Last night we decided to take them to Chatfield Botanical Gardens to see the lights. Audra is in LOVE with lights this year! Honestly, she could have stayed for another 3 hours- especially because by the time we found the children's Christmas village with tons of cool things for kids to do, we had to leave because Claire was no longer cooperating. Poor thing- we had her nicely bundled up, but she was still freezing. Her poor little hands were ice cold and bright red- after an hour in the 30 degree temperature, it was time to go. So, like most activities, we left with two screaming children: one screaming because of the cold, one screaming because they wanted to stay longer.
My new favorite picture:
Overall, it was a great- but VERY cold- night!
(On a related note, the weather here has actually been incredibly warm. We have had almost no moisture since August- seriously. Luckily, the mountains seem to be getting quite a bit of snow, so maybe we won't have a huge drought come next summer. Of course, I was reminded by a friend that we will probably get 10 feet dropped on us at once at some point. I am not looking forward to that storm...)
