The Daily Leo

Fall fun! we went with our good friend Elisabeth to the Denver Botanic Gardens corn maze! it was our first time to the Chatfield botanic gardens and it didn’t disappoint. The corn maze is 8 acres, we did about half of it (we made it to the chicken!) and flaked out. We took a hayrack ride with a really great tour guide from a local antique farm equipment enthusiast. Leo LOVED the tractor pull. I thought he would be running around, but he sat there pretty enthralled by the tractor.

Leo helped me make an apple cake today. It was an undesired activity which required a lot of support (that’s therapist speak for “he didn’t want to, but I made him”).

Snack time all the time today.

Leo loves to work on his bike. He’ll ride a few times up and down the alley, then flip it over and spin the wheels for a while.

Grandma and papa were here this weekend, and boy did Leo have FUN. with them. They stayed at the Cherry Creek Reservoir and Leo took on the beach like a boss. He loved throwing sand (“in the water, Leo!”) and splashing with wild abandon!

Happy 3rd birthday Leo! We did not do a party this year. It was super fun last year, but too much going on this year during the critical planning time. But, we had big fun anyway! We opened some presents first thing in the morning, then went to the park. I made cupcakes during naptime. Leo’s not the biggest fan of the candles. Then a little afternoon bike ride. Fun day!

Here’s Leo’s school pictures from daycare. This was taken just before his 3rd birthday.

July 4th weekend. Leo refuses (most times) to leave the house without a jacket on, and July 4, 86 degrees, no different. So you can see him almost boiling on the back porch. Also, we went to the Lafayette children’s museum with the cousins, and had a blast. My brother and I were cracking up when Leo tried his hardest to get 4 balls, but would always drop them before he made it to the top of the stairs. Also, you can see Leo is reading Green Eggs and Ham at all times lately.

Partying at the Lowry Beer Garden! We went to celebrate a friends dental school degree at the local beer garden. Leo had his first soda! He’s had soda before, but he got his own with his kids meal, and he LOVED it!!!!
