Spencer and Tao have gotten along really well since they met about a year ago, but they have been almost inseparable the last several months. Both of them request to play with the other kid a lot, and when ever we get together, they get super excited. Fortunately they just live around the corner, so it is easy to pop over and say hello. Here are some pictures from some of our recent adventures together, including playing at a park near our house, hiking near Eldorado Springs, and playing music at Baby Boogie. I’ve also included a video of them climbing up a chain ladder at a park.

Last weekend we went to the Arvada kite festival with Spencer’s best friend Tao and his parents Rick and Alisa. We are really lucky to have found good friends right around the corner. Tao and Spencer even go to school together! We have been meaning to go the kite festival for several years. We finally made it this year. It was perfect weather for flying kites – sunny, warm, and windy. We didn’t fly any kites ourselves – we just watched the other ones. They also had a playground, fair food like fresh lemonade and funnel cakes, and some other fun activities for the kids.

Although this week was a bit rough with Spencer fighting bedtime from anywhere between 15 minutes of whining and 2 hours of screaming, he is still a really awesome kid, and a great big brother. Yesterday morning Clare was nursing Meg, and Spencer decided he wanted to help, so he brought Meg a bottle from the bottle drawer. We decided we should let Spencer try to give her a bottle. He was quite interested in it.
