Our Trip to Denver!

We left Thursday morning. Ingrid was super good on the plane, she just sat on my lap and we sang songs, watched Teletubbies, and ate snacks. We got settled at the hotel and then went downtown Denver to look around. The first night was tough, Ingrid wasn't used to her surroundings and was up every two hours or so...But we made it and she got better with each night.

Friday we went to Estes Park. It is a gorgeous drive with tons of great mountain views. Once there, we just got lunch and walked around. It was so cold
! I forget how mountain weather is unpredictable. In Denver it was in the 70s, but way up in the mountains it was snowing.

Saturday was our friends Michelle and Alex's wedding, the reason we were there in the first place. It was gorgeous! It was at a park in Arvada, they had hot dogs and burgers and tons of goodies. Everyone mingled and played badminton and had a good time. Ingrid had fun with sidewalk chalk and the trees.

Sunday we took a drive over to Golden. Brendan has been looking at jobs at a lab there so we decided just to see how far from Denver it was and what the town was like. It's so cute! They have a little downtown and we took a walk along the river. It was another beautiful day and we took another drive to the mountains. This was our way of getting Ingrid to nap--she would only sleep in the car. And what better way to get her to nap than to drive through the mountains? It was so amazing.

After the drive, we met our friends for lunch and the Aquarium. It was pretty cool, Ingrid loved all the fish, she kept running from tank to tank.

And then finally on Monday we left to come home. I love it in Colorado and I hope so bad that Brendan can find a job there. I think we could have a lot of fun in the mountains!!

I spent a summer working in Estes Park, it's beautiful!

Ingrid is looking less like a baby and more and more like a little girl. She's adorable.

Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm so jealous. We lived in Colorado for a couple of years and I really miss the mountains. It is so beautiful there. It is a great place to live!
