Denver, Colorado

~I did not take this picture, however, it does sum up what Denver is all about; big city life with mountain adventure just twenty minutes away.~

I finally got to meet my husbands other side of the family this past weekend. All's I can say is that they are truly great people and can't wait to visit them again. They just so happen to live in Denver, Colorado which is not only great for us but also a little sad seeing as how they are so far away. But, now that we have made it out there I can say with certainty that a once a year trip will bow be a must. The fact that they live close to the mountains and ski resorts just happens to be a plus. This trip however, we did not do any of the fun snow activities because it was still a cool 70-80 degrees in Denver. We did do some great sight seeing though. Museums, butterfly pavilions  exploring some of the down town area ( or LoDo as the locals call it), and checking out of the Coors brewery (you get 3 free beers plus the tour is free!) I'm not much of a beer drinker but  my husband's favorite beer is Coors light so he enjoyed it. And if you know of anyone who likes beer this is the place for them. Since we were only there for a whole three days (not including our travel days) we did not see everything Denver/Colorado has to offer But, that's pretty great because that just means more to do on our next visits. Although family provides more than enough entertainment and happy memories for me.
