We had a fabulous time in Denver last week! We stayed with Patricks grandparents in Arvada. We really enjoyed getting to know each other better, because the only time we see them is when they come here in the winter months. We love you Lois and Jake!
We went to the Denver Zoo, which was really nice. There were so many animals out and it was a beautiful day. We had dinner with Tricia and her mom, Marcia(who was in town for a conference) at a great seafood restaurant in Highland Park! It was great seeing Marcia, I hadn’t seen her since March of this year.
We went up to Vail where the elevation is over 8,000 feet. We ate lunch at this great German restaurant where we sat outside and watched the little kids trick or treat from boutique to boutique. We even took Mafu, our grandparents dog.
After returning from Vail, it was time for trick or treat in Arvada! Elle’s first time out. She did so great, after the second house, she really got the hang of it. She would walk right up to the door and stand, waiting for someone to give her free candy. We got to meet all the wonderful neighbors and they are all very friendly. Much more than here in Arizona. It was a great change, we may go back every year for trick or treat. There is not much of that here in AZ, you have to go the the mall or grocery store parking lot to a sponsored event. Not fun!(
Elle started to get really sick Saturday and into Sunday, so we stayed around the house. Patrick and I cleaned up their yard, we love to rake leaves, so we had a blast! Tricia and I shopped Sunday and it was great to get to do that with her. We love shopping together, especially at Target! We used to go there almost everyday when we both lived in Columbus. She is such a great friend and always will be!
We can’t wait to go back, there is SO MUCH to do there!
Check out our photos from our trip! Enjoy.
