This week in review

Long time no blog. I have no excuse, really, except that I've been nesting like crazy—you should see the ridiculous number of muffins now residing in our freezer—and haven't been able to bring myself to spend more time on the computer than necessary. It's been a fun-filled week, so rather than recapping it, I'll just give it to you in photos.

Last Saturday: University of Colorado's Spring Game
Greg and Sidamo had a boys' day last weekend (so I had the day to myself—yay!). They went up to Boulder for CU's spring game (I have no idea what that means, but Greg was excited about it). From the pictures, I gather it's an event at which the football team shows off its brawn by passing around toddlers.

In this one and the next one, he's eating a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich while meeting some of CU's more revered former players. The boy has his priorities.

Tuesday (or was it Monday?): The Zoo with Jessica and Max
The weather was unreal this week—some days were in the 80s (of course, today was 40s and snowy). So we took advantage of our short-lived spring by spending as much time outside as possible.

This is my real smile!

Jessica and sleepy Max.

Am I placing too much trust in plexiglass?

Thursday: The Magic of Dry Ice
I received a package for work that had dry ice in it, so Greg put it in the sink and gave Sidamo a wooden spoon and some warm water. Voila: his first cauldron. He must have played with it for an hour—until every last crumb of ice had melted—all the while saying, "Sidamo cooking!"

Hi D. It's really really fun to throw dry ice into a sink full of soapy water and watch those bubbles boil up!
