Dear William (63 months)

Dear William,

Today you are 63 months old!

Daddy was out of town for about two weeks this month, so you and me were on our own for a while.  

We climbed Horsetooth Falls, which at this time of year is really more about the journey.

We went to the CSU Homecoming parade and found a bounce house (you love bounce houses).

We did some school work.

You often convinced me to let you stay at the playground after school for a while.

On more than one occasion, you convinced me to let you eat a banana in the bathtub.

You made a few messes.

We went to a Halloween party at the Gardens on Spring Creek.  It was, like, 80 degrees that day.

Bike parking was at a premium.

Then our friend Mel came to visit!! We were so happy to see her.

We took a long drive and went hiking in the Poudre Canyon.

We went out to dinner on a school night, at a Nepalese restaurant.  You were thrilled about eating naan and drinking orange juice.

We were very sad when it was time for her to go.

IMG 4252 Don’t go, Mel.

 

But soon enough, Daddy came back home.

And then it was time for Halloween.  You decided to wear your C3PO costume from last year.  Hooray!

There was a parade at school.

Even the teachers dressed up.

Then you had a room party.

We did some light trick or treating that night. 

These aren't the droids you're looking for

 

This month, you surprised your mom and dad by showing us your fierce and fearless love for bouldering.

It has started to get cold out, but you and daddy bundled up and still biked to school.

We finished out this month with a crazy snow storm and a few days of below-zero temperatures.  Welcome to Colorado, everybody says.  You and your dad still rode the bike.

If this is any indication of what winter here is like, well then, I guess I am very much looking forward to when it is over.  Sometime next May.

 

William, I love you through and through.

Love always,

Mama

If you don't have a pool then you can rent our inflatable water slide. You can arrange a great summer party with our water slide. It will keep your kids actively entertained and cool on hot days.
