i feel like the title above is a little misleading... or sounds like the sequel to night at the roxbury.it's 6:30 am, so let's just go with it. with the way this weeks schedule looks, i figure blog now or it might be brushed aside and become the red headed step child of memories.
first off, i just have to say that i love colorado. it's pretty! it's clean! people wear their workout garb all day and there are ample places to park a bike. there are running trails less than 100 meters from my aunt's front door. there's public transportation and a cafe rio. really, i think a combination of these things are the only necessities to life.
on saturday, britni and i boarded a jet at million air airport. in provo, utah. no, we are not high rollers, but leaving from an airport proclaiming "million air" and having to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane made us feel pretty fly. (and in need of some aviators)
|oh, skymall... i need this.|
my aunt aly collected us from the airport and we went on a fieldtrip to krispy kreme on the way home.
we then embarked on to highlands ranch, co, where my family lives, and proceeded to spend the day stuffing ourselves with chips and salsa for lunch, shopping around for hours, and having a repentance dinner of salad at cpk. oh, and i started getting a cold, how lame is that? i always get sick on trips, and that is a fact.
|i kind of think this is exactly how a 17 month old lives life.|
we went to the "taste of colorado" fest and got free eats and watched cooking demos.
we rented bikes and rode all over the city
we spent a couple hours inside of the coolest bookstore of our lives
we had the best ice cream ever. ever. little man's chocolate coconut, you are something else.
we had sub par food at a crappy parisian cafe.
we met black rappers who wanted us to be in their music video... and wanted pictures with us, after ordering us to "putcha shades on!" oh, and told us to look for them on mtv. done deal.
we did touristy things like ask people on bikes to take pictures of us in front of rando buildings.
we tried to go see boyz to men... but decided against fighting the crowds.
all in all, it was a great day in the city, minus the fact that everything was closed for labor day.
later, we took a field trip out to my uncle's work and stopped at the red rocks amphitheatre, which is breathtaking, by the way.
we found out zac brown band had been playing all weekend, and we were sad to have missed it, seeing as britni's cousin is in the band, and we could have scored some great tickets. boo. maybe if we had gone the red rocks would have collapsed on us? yeah we'll just go with that.
|you can't hear it, but he's saying CHEEEEEEESE|
all in all, this weekend taught me a couple things. colorado is beautiful. i have a wonderful family who are great hosts/tour guides. when you have a cold and there is already pressure in your head, the descent on an airplane is pretty painful. i am going to suffer this week for being irresponsible and not going to school.
i hardly care because my trip was completely worth it.colorado and family there, thank you. you're wonderful.
