Solar Eclipse

Turns out that Nana, Papa, and Brahm were at home during the Solar Eclipse. And yes, we checked in on it a few times while having lunch and making spaghetti for dinner. Some of the kids got to see it at school, too. Next one for Colorado will be in August of 2045 and the path of 100% totality will go across much of Colorado.

We made our own solar artwork (photo)... With an Old Fashioned.

Max for our area was about 68%.

Yesterday our two Wizard of Oz actors distributed
posters to various businesses near us. This was Carl's Jr.
Our last stop was Josh & John's Ice Cream!

The Children's Hospital helicopter happened to be
parked at the hospital when we dropped Tracy
off for work this morning.

I think the various puzzles might have been the big hit for Easter this year... All the photos are here.

On a Wednesday?!

Well, it was Spring Break for the School kids... Which meant everyone was a little more free from schedule responsibilities than normal.

Jonny and Lexi helped make dessert for Family Dinner tonight.

Nana and Papa visited Urban Tandoor - great discovery.

Here and There

 Three snapshots, three events:

During some errand running, Nana and Papa dropped in
for lunch at Pikes Peak Brewing Company.

Jonny ended up at Scheels (and Sushi Ato) somehow.

And Fina is in the midst of moving into her new apartment!

25" of Snow

One official report said this morning that the Northgate-to-Baptist-Road area got 25" of snow in the last 36 hours or so! I'm pretty sure that's a record for us since we moved here in 2017. It was also Pi Day (yesterday)! Oh, and beware the Ides of March (today).

Remaining safely indoors

The hot tub was delightful

Angel Mist Park, a few doors down from us.

Wrestling Medal, Oz, and Cookies

It was a big day! Griffen took 1st Place at the final Wrestling Tournament of the season. Meanwhile, Antonio and Lexi continue with Wizard of Oz rehearsals. And Nana and Jonny baked some delicious chocolate chip cookies that were ready just about the time everyone got home.

In the upper left is Brahm's medal for taking
third in State for wrestling (a couple weeks earlier)!
