Ringling Bros. Out Of This World

The Ringling Bros show was just here in Denver and what a show it was!!! Our boys always enjoy going to the circus, this one was pretty cool and fitting as they had skaters!!  Something we have never seen at the circus before!  With the boys playing hockey and being great skaters themselves, they were certainly entertained by the amazingly talented performers they saw at the show!  For the first time, the show featured thrill skaters – and acts will seamlessly transition from floor to air to ice, a feat never before done in Ringling Bros. And, of course, what would a circus be without clowns?  These ones were so funny!!!  The boys thoroughly enjoyed watching them!!! The new show entitled, … [Read more...]

Cirque Du Soleil in Denver

If you've never been to a Cirque du Soleil show, you NEED to go to Kurios in Denver! If you've been to a Cirque du Soleil show, you NEED to go to Kurios in Denver!!!

A year of short hair

Last year, I willingly and excitedly shaved my head bald to raise money for Childhood Cancer Research through a great organization called St Baldrick's.  It's a world wide organization that raises money and those raising money, in turn, shave their head at events all over the world.  They occur on various days at various venues (Irish Pubs are huge sponsors) and they take place in around St. Patricks Day. It is an experience that can change many lives in different ways.  It can change a child's life, a child's family's life, and the shavee's life.  For women shavees, it can perhaps mean something different than men shaving their heads.  For women, hair and their hairstyles often define them … [Read more...]

What is Wind Power?

We live in beautiful Colorado and have been watching a growing number of wind turbines being installed along I-25. The boys love watching them grow larger and larger as we approach them driving down the highway. These wind turbines are humungous!!! Then the question comes, "Mom, what are they windmills for and why are they here?" Me, being the non-scientific person that I am, answers with a very vague answer ... you know, just enough for them to think for a second and carry on fighting with eachother. The next time we drive past them and they ask, because you know they will, I am going to shock them with a pretty solid answer! And I will shock myself with an answer more than, "They are … [Read more...]
