My friend moved last year and we miss them. My kiddos played with her kiddos all the time and they got along really well. We found a great deal on Frontier Airlines from a nearby town to Denver for under $100 each roundtrip (just love great sales!) So the boys and I took a trip while hubby was at work and visited them.
It was so nice being able to hang out and enjoy my friend T.
And her family were so very hospitable and cooked breakfast and kept us entertained the whole time. I loved seeing movies in their basement theatre room (we don't have basements in the area where I live.) While her youngest kiddo was at daycare, they took us tubing down the slope one day in Winter Park.
My third grader (who looked Amish with his blue shirt and black suspender looking snowpants.) Luckily, I am a hoarder (on really small level) and saved it from my daughter when we went snow skiing 19 years ago.
We also went bowling and we had a great time! There was a expert bowler next to us and my kiddo watched him intently.
There were SO many parks around the area where they lived! This one was really cool!
We loved that it actually snowed one day while we were there! The kiddos made snow angels, made a snowman (and a 'snow fort' which ended up only being the first block toward it...the snow froze your hands and my kids weren't used to playing in snow.)
We also went to the Denver Zoo. It was an absolutely great day to go and the weather was awesome!
And they had great play areas there.
Christmas trees growing everywhere! I loved seeing them!!
Oh, and geese...everywhere! It was so interesting seeing them (we don't ever see them land near us since we live so far south.)
There were some theatres that had bars (alcohol) and restaurants (order food.) This chair was SOOO comfortable! My friend and I watched Divergent. She and I are movie buffs!
And finally, a picture my friend took of her oldest son and my youngest son. I love this picture. We had a very nice experience hanging out with them and good friends are great blessings. Made me realize how much I appreciate my bffs. I will need to check out a way to visit my friend J in the near future as well.
