On Saturday we headed to Fort Collins. The ulterior motive was picking up honey for Adam’s latest beer (being brewed as I type this), but we love Fort Collins, so we decided to make a day of it.
I broke the weekend up into a few posts, mostly because I have so many pictures to share with you! I bought a used camera off of a friend and am having so much fun learning how to use it!
The first place we stopped after picking up the honey was the Swetsville Zoo, a sculpture park where the sculptures are made from scrap metal.
Julia was not a fan of the metal animals… at least, not the dinosaurs.
She did warm up to the bird shaped sculptures though. Much smaller and apparently more loveable.
Raven, as always, had a blast running around, picking up sticks, and generally wrecking havoc.
Both girls enjoyed the stream that was near the park and gave each other a little love. Of course, this was before the hair-pulling ensued.
The girls also enjoyed picking up and throwing rocks into the water. This must be instinctual… maybe from the days when we had to kill fish with our bare hands or something? Why else would rocks be thrown into the water?
As always seems to happen our outings, Julia became the quiet and side-clinging one, while Raven… well… Raven got a little naughty.
This landed her a trip on dad’s shoulders. (I guess from her perspective, it isn’t the worst place to be.)
Next up? OBC and FCBC.
