We spent the last few days on vacation in Colorado, visiting E’s brother and my sister. I knew we had made it to Boulder when I had the following exchange with the middle-aged couple sitting next to us in a restaurant. We had just finished lunch and Andrew was resisting a face-wiping with every fiber of his body.
Me: “Thanks, folks, the next show starts in an hour.”
Woman: “I was just telling my partner how much happier we’d all be if we were free to express our emotions like that.”
Honestly I would have been less surprised if she had started tossing cats at us…until I remembered where we were.
Andrew’s favorite part of the trip: the “food” at the Cherry Creek Mall in Denver. The mall’s play area features oversized breakfast foods as play equipment, and whomever designed that stuff is an evil genius. We made three trips in four days. Perhaps the pictures will explain better than my words can.
Thanks to Uncle Brad, Aunt Sarah and Gammy and Pop Pop for hanging out with us!
