A Little More Weekend Miscellany

Art class.

No matter how much we water this plant, the
chocolate will not grow back.

Lynn finally got the German pancake to cook properly. Then add
powdered sugar and raspberries.

Goin' to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

Another fabulous outing to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo! And this time we tried out their restaurant, which turned out to be quite good for a fast-food, cafeteria style place. Thankfully Tracy managed to get us an indoor table while Lynn, Fina, and Jamie got the food. The wind made it a bit chilly outside. All the photos are here.

Oh yeah, Tracy got some color in her hair.

It smelled in here.

The meerkats are always a crowdpleaser.

Bird feeding was a new activity, and fun!

Horseshoe Donuts

Turns out Monument, CO has a donut store, Horseshoe Donuts. So we gave it a go! They actually have horseshoe-shaped donuts, but they got eaten before I could get a picture. You can see them on their website.

a rousing chorus of "It's Friday!"

Nana and Papa spent yesterday evening checking out Biaggi's Italian Restaurant at Briargate (very good, by the way). We then picked up a weird combination of beauty supplies, Easter stuff, and a tea kettle after dinner.

Hover Kart, etc.

This Hover Kart was a hit. A kit that turns a hover board into a Go Kart. Craig came to visit this weekend, too, so a lot of puzzling got worked. AJ and the twins went to a birthday party at a trampoline gym - had a blast.

Despite the look on Fina's face, she loved this thing, as did Matteo and AJ.

Sunday night after a day at the airport. Matt made a mad dash
(18-hour round trip today) to El Paso to help with a
stolen passport situation. He was greeted with a snow
storm coming home.

Echo of Love

Fina and DCC-friend Jonas were asked by their theatre department if they would participate in a production at Pine Creek High School called Echo of Love. Their role was to be a slam poem (which many of us had never heard of before). They joined the cast and ended up having a great time and meeting a few new friends from another school. The title of their piece was "Blink." It was a great show - Pine Creek has some fantastic singers and dancers. More photos are here.

Avila Beach

Jamie and Lynn enjoyed nearly a week in Avila Beach, CA. Love staying at Avila Lighthouse Suites. Here are a couple random photos. Jamie was in town training up his replacement at ESAero. And Lynn got to spend time with the California grandkids and family. Last Sunday night we saw The Producers at SLOREP. Such a great show, and even more fun to say Hi to a lot of theatre friends!
