Knowing we'd miss Labor Day weekend at the lake, the five of us sneaked over to PK in August for one last summer splash.
The big kids took lessons this summer and were a little sad to say goodbye to their barnyard friends right before school started. When I asked Henry if he wanted to take lessons next year he quickly replied, "NOPE." He does like hanging with Buttons the donkey, though.
Speaking of school starting...
For Labor Day Weekend, Wes and I took Ella up to Colorado while the boys enjoyed a sister-free weekend.
We wandered around downtown Denver on the first afternoon.
While Wes watched the rest of the Georgia game at the hotel, Ella and I struck out at the Unsinkable Molly Brown Museum, so we walked down to the Denver Museum of Art for a quick visit before dinner.
Dinner on Larimer Square...we highly recommend Osteria Marco!
Sunday, the Frays were nice enough to invite us out to their home in Boulder. What gorgeous views and wonderful company!
That afternoon, we headed to visit Justin and Cindi in Bailey. Another heavenly spot on a mountain! (Ella is already researching universities in Colorado so she can live there in a few years.)
Monday morning, the Pritchards were brave enough to take us three city slickers out to Arapahoe State Park to hike.
Monday evening, we headed to Red Rocks with tickets to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit.
Not a bad place to see a show. :) I think we'll be back.
