What a fun week we had! Swimming + meals with cousins + grandparents. Wildlings celebrated Cat Day with much fanfare + lots of outdoor play. Three different playgrounds with friends this week, plus art + play at the house together = happy + sun-filled days.

Calm week spent outside as much as possible, barring Thursday. We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day twice – early with our Wildling crew and a leprechaun-fueled treasure hunt, then on the actual holiday with just family + Rosetta’s amazing 4-leaf clover cookies (not pictured). We learned a lot of Irish facts, history + lore, then polished up our limericks with Irish accents all around. We also learned to dance a basic jig. Our family ancestry runs to Ireland on both sides, so it’s exciting to learn more.

Everyone found an art focus this week – to my surprise! I’d picked up a set of encaustics at a garage sale recently, and a friend at Wildlings gave us a tutorial. So we set up the whole shabang on the kitchen floor + painted for several days, even once with friends. By the end, a huge brush-cleaning session that stunk up the whole house with chemicals, we each had 3-4 wooden canvases that we liked.

Finally the perfect weather for family bike rides! After one great, windy one, and then an entire day outside at Wildlings, we shuffled off to Great Wolf Lodge for a few days indoors. Altho I did make the kiddos walk to dinner across the entire parking lot, a full mile, without considering the incessant wind and our wet hair and the 30º weather. Making memories!

We stopped + browsed the Trail Through Time, near Fruita, on our way across Colorado, picking out the bones of dinosaurs all along the 2-mile trek + reading signs about “desert patina” + “erosion” that explained the terrain. Rosetta took pictures of her entire hike to piece into a stop-motion of the trip, which ends up with 20 seconds worth of views for 200 photos.

Wildling sensory science, lots of home experiments + builds, then a fairy house project that turned out amazing – three beautiful houses in our front garden bed!

Long before we had kids, George and I always found somewhere to BE in the mountains this time of year. It’s just rejuvenating to meander outside as the seasons shift. Now we pretend this fall tradition is “for Wilder’s birthday.”
