Three day weekends are the best! I think we can all agree on that. But this one was even more special/needed than most. I had been missing Jasper something fierce since he started kindergarten on Tuesday, so to have 3 fun filled days with him was magical. 

We decided ahead of time to make NO plans! Starting next weekend Jasper has soccer on Saturdays and Swedish school every other Sunday, so this was really our last weekend with nothing going on for the next two months at least. 

Saturday we to Cherry Creek Reservoir- the closest thing we have to a beach here in the Denver area. 

I can't wait till next summer when T is old enough to wear sunscreen, we get her in the shade 98% of the time, but she did get a dip in the water for a few minutes twice. 

When she wasn't napping in her stroller mamma made her a little tent using towels/sheet two chairs and a stroller. She was happy as can be roller around naked on the towel in the sand.

Sunday we had a more low key day because Drew had to get a few hrs of work in in the morning. We did go to two different parks and got caught in a little 10 min rain and had to get shelter under the play structure and then had a cozy pizza movie night.

Monday was my favorite. We asked Jasper Sunday night if he could pick anything to do Monday what it would be, and he picked the zoo. The two of us used to go at least once a month, even in the winter but haven't gone since 2 weeks before Tindra came. It's just been such a HOT summer and they finally opened up a huge new zoo exhibit that's been years in the making and I've heard it's been super busy. But since he requested we decided it was the perfect time to go. 

One of the new elephants, Groucho but on such a good show! I could really tell he was happy in his new environment. He even went swimming!
