Summer Fun

My Brother and Sister-in-law finally got to come to Denver and even though it was a few days after our big move it forced me to stop and have some fun! Who doesn’t love fun? ha! They got in super early in the morning which was perfect for the first stop…. Snooze at Union Station! Not only is this breakfast place “the” place to take your out-of-towners……but it’s awesome!

 I took the nice camera with me that morning and played photographer…. I don’t know why but I really love this picture!

 Next up I took them to Red Rocks which to be honest Jordan wasn’t super excited about but I knew she would like it and she DID! They were setting up for Sam Smith while we were there and it is always fun touring the museum and really getting a feel for how EPIC Red Rocks is!

 Curtis and Jordan went to see his friend Aaron in Fort Collins a little during the middle of the week and we all met up at one of my favorite places… The Alamo Drafthouse to have dinner and see Mission Impossible….. we all had the best time!
Saturday I call White Water Rafting re-do…. because this Summer Matt didn’t get to go so I wanted him to experience how much fun I had and Curtis and Jordan were game too!

 It was towards the end of the rafting season so the water was really low but we still had a ball!

After rafting we took our grubby selfs to Cart-Driver…. the hottest place in Denver for Oysters, Pizza and Prosecco on tap and I knew they would love it as much as I did!! Cheers!

 Saturday night we all got gussied up and headed to the Cherry Creek Food and Wine Festival, Matt and I went last year and had the best time!
How great is this picture?

 Jordan and I didn’t plan on matching! ha! You know I love a good front door photo shoot… but guess what?? That door is now YELLOW!!!!!!!

Cheers to great food, great company and drinks!

 SO…. I am obsessed with Top Chef, it is my favorite show and the Chefs are Gods to me and look who I met….. Gregory the runner-up from the most recent season in Boston!! OMG, look at my face I totally fan-girled ALL over him and his dish won Best in Show!! He told us that he is opening Departure Cherry Creek this Spring!! I cannot wait!

 Sunday it was Girls vs Boys….. The boys went golfing to this amazing #1 course in Denver……

 And us girls had High Tea at The Brown Palace …. it was a surprise I planned for Jordan and she loved it! You know me….. making others happy is selfish… because it makes me so happy!

We really had a wonderful time and look forward to them coming back again and they loved the new house too!!! And of course the animals LOVED getting extra attention for a week!
