A weekend away...

This last weekend Joe and I were able to fly up to Denver for the weekend to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. Although it wasn't on our actual anniversary. It was so fun to get away for a few days, enjoy being childless and wandering around doing whatever sounded fun. A great big shout out of thanks to Joe's parents for watching the kids while we were gone. It made it even better to be away when we knew that they were there taking great care of our children (even spoiling them a great deal!). 
 This is our view from our room. I thought it was so pretty. Our hotel was right downtown on a great street full of shopping and restaurants. It was pretty perfect.
 There was a Pinkberry right down from our hotel and I wanted to try it out. Our local frozen yogurt place is much better we thought, but it was still fun to try out.
 We went to a Rockies game the 2nd night we were there. Besides it being extremely hot, it was a great night! The seats were really good and really close, we got free t-shirts and we ate ballgame food, can it get any better?
This is our view of the game.

I learned a few things on this trip. I do not like public busses, we took a bus from the airport to the hotel and it was not my favorite. I tried out fried pickles for the first time (something I've been wanting to do for a very long time) and they were AWFUL! And I learned that even after 8 years and 3 kids, Joe is still the person I'd rather spend all my time with!

I am so glad you were able to get away! There is nothing quite like an anniversary trip to remind you why you got married in the first place! Mom and Dad are great that way!

Amen to Aubrey's post! So glad you could spend time "alone" and hold hands of course! :) Happy Anniversary!

So glad you had a great time! I'm very jealous that I wasn't able to babysit!
