I love Colorado

You never know what to expect weather-wise in Colorado. Being a weather forecaster here is a thankless and often criticized job. At 10pm, we may be expecting 10" of snow, but the cold front decides to take a new path over the mountains and suddenly it's a balmy 60 degree day. Or the complete opposite may happen too.

The familiar phrase heard here is, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute". And it is true. I do love my winters though. We are a higher elevation than the actual heart of Denver, and by virtue of our location, get some nice snowy days. This winter, however, has been unseasonably warm. I can't believe it's February, and we've hit record highs in the 70s!

The Monkey has been riding his trike (that we borrowed from Grandma and Grandpa who scored it in an awesome garage sale find), and is recently fond of the camera again (we went through a shy period of NO smiling in front of the camera).

I took some pics of him the other day riding outside with the neighbors, in the nice sunny weather (hubby was wearing shorts). He loves to smile and wave at the camera, silly kid! And for comparison's sake...I've posted some pics of what the Monkey was doing outside on this exact same date last year.
