No Kids Allowed!

Hello Denver.

Over the weekend, Dan and I took a little retreat to Colorado. Strictly for fun, not for any certain convention! We left the boys in VERY capable hands, (thanks Cat and Richard) so we didn't have anything to worry about ever. They had just as much fun without us as we did without them!

I have to admit that I kinda like down town Denver. We did a lot of walking around the day after the convention, seeing Denver in it's hung over state. Very interesting.

We found refuge from all the petitions and vendors at Riverside Park, where we actually came upon 'Rock the Vote.' It was held at the skate park within the park, so of course we had to stop and watch. Dan regretted not having his board with him. We left as soon as 2 bands started playing at the SAME TIME. Too loud.

Without the boys to entertain, we had moments to sit.... read.... write.... talk.... be quiet.... 

There were signs of patriotism everywhere.

I can't remember the name of the theater, but these 2 figures are as tall as the building. I thought they looked fun.

We tried to see a Rockies game, but were misinformed, and there wasn't one. So instead, we found a comedy club to attend. It turned out to be a great evening, with surprisingly clean comedians. (the club is across the street behind me)

One day Dan, you'll get to get inside Coors Stadium to see a ball game.

Even though we only took 1 picture, we spent a lot of time in Boulder. This is our new favorite place, up there with Jackson, WY. (for those who know me, that's saying something) They have the greatest Farmers' Markets and kids fairs, and it's just so darn cute. We went 2 days in a row. Who knows, one day that might be our address.

Oh yeah, Dan thought riding a fake pig would be awesome... for Josh to giggle at. (right)

It looks like such a fun trip! Really cool about the comedy club, too. What a good find in a somewhat unknown town.
