Biking in the driveway.

This is one of their favorite activities. They bike around the driveway. What is funny is that Kylie can't really ride her bike so she make car noises and then Jayden will come push her bike closer to his. They are so cute!

Potty Trained!

We are so excited! He did it, he is potty trained. For doing this, we stooped to bribery and he got this awesome truck with tractors! Have I said that we are excited?

Will Rogers Shrine

Up the mountain from the zoo in Colorado Springs is a very interesting building. I guess in the 1920's there was a very rich, eccentric man who decided to build a castle like shrine to Will Rogers. The lower room is made for singing, it has excellent acoustics. When we entered, there was a woman there singing opera and recording it. It was AWESOME! You climb up several levels, each level has a room with pictures of Will Rogers in it. Crazy!

Colby, Jayden and Kylie at the base of the building. Can you see the view?
Going up the stairs we stopped for a picture and then realized as I was showing Jayden the pictures that the men are naked. He asked me why. LOL!!
Here we all are at the top!
Colby and Kylie saying hi on the way down.
Jayden, Kyle and me by the shrine.

Jayden, Colby and Kylie smiling by the shrine as well. One of the weirdest things we have seen in awhile but glad we did it :)

Colorado Springs Zoo

For Memorial weekend we decided to go on a little trip. We didn't go too far. We went about 40 minutes to Springs and got a hotel with a pool and played there then in the morning went to the local zoo. It was pretty fun, you get to feed giraffes and the zoo is literally in the mountain side. Here are some pictures of our experience.

Jayden trying to convince the closest giraffe to come by him.
It was so funny, it was totally in a showdown with Kylie. I think it was mad that we didn't have any food for it :)
They had a cute "garden" and this is them being silly.
She makes a pretty cute tiger.
Jayden playing tiger. They had so much fun with this. They made sure we were tigers too.
Another very cool part of the zoo was the bird room. It was a big room with a lot of exotic birds in it and you held up a Popsicle stick with bird seed on it and they would eat out of your hands. It was crazy!
Kylie loved it too! It was fun.
We were going down the trail when we saw this kangaroo up on the grass. Kylie wanted to climb the wall and literally say hello.
This is kind of a sad picture. The big gorilla was, I think, just getting out of the sun and sitting by the window. Jayden was really quiet and went right up to him. Jayden couldn't stop looking.

This is a for real picture. If you enlarge it you will see a squirrel sitting there eating a chip. It just went right by Jayden and sat down like they were buddies eating lunch together. I was lucky to get a picture of it.
