"There's no sweet tea in Colorado." -a disgruntled mom

Mom, Dad and Mollie came to visit us in Denver for my birthday weekend - they took us on a tour of our own state and we were very worn out by the time they left. The adventure started on Saturday, exploring Denver's 16th Street Mall.
Mom and Dad on the free 16th Street Mall bus - aren't they cute in their matching puffy vests?

Mom, Mollie and Chris hiked around Mt. Falcon.

Dad really liked this wall of old license plates we saw in Morrison. "This was the auto body repair shop we broke down at on one of our vacations" says dad. "There is a shop that we broke down at in every state" says mom.

Sarah's Birthday Surprises

The Day started with a delicious delivery from Stuart, Julie, Kim, Katie and Kendra. Edible Arrangements - Sarah's favorite!
And ended with Chris's surprise, dinner at the Denver Aquarium! It was feeding time in the huge tank and the scuba diver waved.

Great start to the new year!

New Years Eve with Chris' cousins Daniel Gilstrap and fiancee Sarah Lacy + Andrew and Melissa Gilstrap. Then a few nights later, in the middle of a Colorado blizzard, pizza + drinks with our Colorado friends Michelle and Chad Achterhoff. We appreciate our friends a lot.
