Summer has Officially Begun

We decided to spend the weekend up in Leadville again. Happy to say all of the snow has melted and the temps are warming up nice. We’ll be at our constant comfy 70 degree high altitude days in no time. This was probably the first weekend so far where the kids were able to go short sleeved all day. Which means they pretty much never came inside. Not that they usually have time for the indoors, but this was something more. Isn’t that what kids are supposed to do?

Or maybe it was because Dad was finally able to put this up.

Kayla found the swinging in this hammock very relaxing. While she was swinging she was silent. I tried to open her up a few times to get a photo but she would freak out until we closed her up again. Then I had a brilliant idea. Give kid cookie. Works every time.

During the day Kayla became quite attached to her little chair. While she walked around she would carry her chair behind her as if they were attached. A little weird if you ask me.

Wyatt liked this new Kayla who was confined to her chair. Its was the perfect opportunity to get some rubs.

And even sneak in a few kisses.

Between rides the girls would spend hours working on their pretend garden. They put so much work into it that Dad decided to take the girls shopping for some wildflower seeds. We’ll see if they actually take. This cabin ground is a weird dry thing.

While all this fun was going on you could hear Yoshi crying from this window. He can’t stand being alone. The girls were great about taking breaks inside to comfort their little kitty.

Kayla would especially take moments to go play inside with Yoshi. He is the only kitty so far that actually likes to play with her. I think toddler/kitty relationships are quite rare. Especially when their preferred mode of kitty transportation is by a death neck grip.

Dad had some meetings during the day so Mom took the kids down to the playground for a bit. Kayla spent this time rescuing her kitty from all sorts of near death falls and other catastrophes.
