Boulder, CO April 17, 2009

No joke... today we got MORE snow!!  So much for Spring!  The snow has been falling since last night.  It was wet enough to make a snowman which, of course, Sean did...

(Marisa added the mustache)

Not fazed by the wetness and cold, Owen still wanted to go for a ride on his favorite toy ever:


Afterwards, Marisa was able to bribe both boys into staying inside with the promise of fresh juice.  Ok, it was Sean's idea but it was still fun (and tasty)...

Owen being Owen

Owen has entered the fun, playful stage. He loves kicking and throwing balls, going for rides on his fire engine, and flinging himself backwards onto the couch or some other surface (he's still learning that it hurts if that surface is hard), running around naked, trying to squeeze through tight areas, and pizza. Oh, and we taught him to throw his head back when he laughs. We'll have to capture a video of that because it's too cute. But here are some other cute pics and videos of Owen being Owen...

Spring Snow and Vovo's Visit

The past few weeks (ever since the Emmers left), despite the fact that the calendar says it's Spring, it has been a veritable winter wonderland in Boulder.  On March 26 we got 18 inches of snow in the "blizzard of '09".  Sean was away and Owen's Vovo Yol was visiting.  Owen and I both got a snow day and we had lots of fun (and some not so fun) moments...



The next day, the sun came out.  It was a beautiful bluebird day...


Sean came home Friday night.  By Saturday, much of the snow had melted so we took Vovo to Pearl Street:


And the snow keeps falling!  We've had two more days of snow since (not enough for a snow day but enough for sledding and snow-swinging!  Though, I think, deep down, we're all ready for the warm weather!
