Back to school!

Cooper's first day of third grade!!

He's been wearing cowboy boots all summer, but decided he wanted tennis shoes so he could run faster at school.  He had to take a few laps around the store (including a jump!) to test them out:

Coop and Alan got settled into their new place.  The door in this picture leads to Coop's bedroom.  Above it is the loft, which apparently will be a library / play room eventually.  For now, it makes the perfect place to hide during a nerf gun war:

I ordered a new bed for Coop at this house.  He and Gus and Eleanor had a fun time playing around it:

Coop spent a few days in Lyons, including many hours at the pool:

And ice cream at Dairyland:

And legos:

The boys went to a Fun Park at Breckenridge.  They rode this ski lift up to the top of an alpine slide:

Alan ran into Kevin, a friend from grade school, at the fun park:

Continental Divide (with Danni, Alan's friend from grad school):

Playing life-sized Jenga:

Somewhere along a road in CO.  They were expecting the boys!
