In case you didn't know, summer is officially over and it's now Fall. We spend Saturday up in Rocky Mountain National Park watching the elk bugle. This is an annual tradition for us (check out last years pictures here). This year we took a couple of Baby Boy's friends, so their parent could have a date night before their 3rd baby arrived in a few weeks. I didn't get too many good pictures because I was too busy entertaining 3 little boys.
Anyway, we had a great time. While the boys were climbing rocks, a bull elk walked by in the field below and bugled. Baby Boy decided to bugle back, which in some ways was quite humorous, but I also held my breath since depending on how the elk responded it could have been an accident waiting to happen! When we saw the second, bigger, bull elk, Baby Boy didn't just want to bugle back to it, he wanted to pet it or ride it...who knows what was going through his mind. Every time he thought we weren't watching, he'd try to make a break for it (Note to self...Don't let your baby ride pony's at the county fair until they are old enough to understand not all animals are tame). It truly is a good thing that Baby Boy's friends were well behaved and listened to our directions.
As we were driving down the mountain, I was thinking it won't be long before we start getting snow. We had the threat of snow last week one day, but the weather man was wrong. So now, I am scurrying around gathering supplies and building up my arsenal to entertain Baby Boy on days we are stuck inside.
So far we have crayons, finger paint, construction paper, glue. I'm not sure what else I'll get. I'm looking for suggestions. Baby Boy is almost 18 months old. What would you stock in your rainy day supply cabinet for an 18 month old? Leave a comment and let me know.
