Waterboy and Sugarloaf

We've known for a long time that Kai is a fish. This was reaffirmed on Saturday evening when we went to our new church's pool party/dinner/member's meeting (a fun combination indeed!) We're not members (at least not yet), but the entire church was invited so we joined in.

The event was held at a pool that we've seen before, but never actually used. It's right in the middle of Boulder, and it's very large, with a very big waterslide. We had no idea that 2-year-olds would be allowed on the slide, or that our 2-year-old would love it so much! After every ride we would get "C'mon c'mon c'mon! Up up up!" as he dashed off ahead of us to the stairs.

Yesterday we climbed Sugarloaf Mountain, which is a 20 minute drive west of Boulder. This mountain is a much easier climb than Bear Peak, with only +470 ft of elevation gain from the trailhead to the top at 8917 ft. There was a fire on the mountain back in 1989, and there is still ample evidence today in the form of charred tree trunks. It made for a very ominous landscape.

We have many more photos of both events, all on the shoppers website.
