More time with mum


Our pile of travel items on the livingroom floor!

Flynn's room is coming along too!

View from our bedroom.

My mum arrived back from her roadtrip today, and we took her on a long loop around North Denver on the bikes.

I don't know what this lake is called, but it's a lovely one.

About to be parents and feeling romantic.


Milkweed, or so my mum says. Pretty.

Mother and daughter.

This lake also has a slightly different breed of pelicans from ours.

Mum and M. on the Clear Creek bike path. After the ride, we went for icecream at an awesome new icecream shop on 32nd. They make their own and it is absolutely delicious, especially on a chocolate-infused handmade waffle cone! We tried Dutch apple pie flavor, banana nutbread flavor, but my absolute hands-down favorite is Ginger-lime with real grated ginger and bits of macadamia nut. Absolutely killer!

I love how you can see Flynn's crib from your room, but how do you get any sleep?!

I love the room. It is nice to have it right off of your room. And that quilt is groovy.

Melissa said...

The nursery is perfect! How convenient to have it right by your bedroom.

That ice cream sounds amazing!

How sweet you two are in that romantic shot by the lake. I love the nursery and enjoy watching your travel preparations. Are you bringing a carseat to China? There are no seatbelts in China so you will have to hold Flynn in the cars and busses.

Qiuqiu's parents said...

No, the car seats are not going to China - they're simply in that pile because we need to deal with them. First, I need to clean all the dog hair, bits of old sushi, and chocolate wrappers out of the back of the car. Then we can learn to install the car seats. That's a project for next week.

I should have took a picture of our stuff before travel it was a mess! The baby's room looks great! My friend is leaving on Fridya to adopt her little on wow-this is so neat seeing people come and go I really injoy it!

Maia said...

Mmmm, I love the color of Qiu Qiu's room - like a warm sunset (actually, now that I look at it, it's very close to the color I painted Spike's room before he was born!). You guys look lovely and happy and relaxed. Like you're really enjoying your last days as a family of two! Wonderful!

Juliette said...

This is really a smart thing do: enjoy your last moments as a couple!!!! Yep your life is never going to be the same after.

Yoli said...

I love that you have maps on the wall. I do that too, I like to give my children a sense of geography and wonder.

Love that your Mom bikes, she is such an outdoor person. Indiana Jones Mom that Mike calls her. How true.

Look at you two being lovey dovey! So cute. You are making me fall in love with Denver, heck you even make me want to try ice cream.

kris said...

the view from your room is the BEST.

love all the pics, you and mike look like you are on a honeymoon, all over again ;O)

Tish said...

looks like you guys might need your own private jet with all of your take-alongs!

so nice that you had more time with your mother!!!

we ended up having to get a new car seat the day before we left because the first one would not work with our car!
