Zoe, Owen and I went down to Golden, CO for a quick day trip on Saturday with the May-Ostendorp's. It's a cool little town and not far away at all, and the Coors brewery has free self-guided tours so we all piled in the car together and went down for the day. It was a beautiful day and the tour, while short and not all that exciting, was fun. Got some free beer out of it, anyway and a few "Never thought I'd" moments, which are always welcome: "Never thought I'd be ordering a beer at a bar while nursing my baby in a baby carrier", "Never thought I'd send my 3 year old up to a bar for a refill." It was pink lemonade, okay? So, stop judging!
Then yesterday, while Nathan was at the library FINISHING WRITING HIS THESIS....yup, he finished it! I cannot imagine ever, in my life being able to accomplish what he's accomplished. Not only the writing of 160-some pages, but doing that while being an involved father of two such small children. He's amazing and I'm so proud of and happy for him....anyway, while he was working, Zoe and I had a somewhat normal day. Not much to report except that we made a box of Rainbow Rice. Got the idea from Pink and Green Mama, but colored it with liquid watercolor paint instead of food coloring. We actually colored it Sunday when she was recovering from the night before and played with it yesterday. She loved playing with it, and I thought it looked really pretty and it was satisfying watching her mix all the colors together as she played...I'm posting a lot of pictures here because I thought it was so fun and so cool-looking...
