Exploring Denver

On Saturday night, after a fun day in Longmont and Nederland with Dan's Mom, Dan and I headed up to Denver to spend some time with family and friends. We got tickets in advance for the Nuggets - Bobcats game and we were lucky enough to be seated in the Mt Loud section where they gave us fun little noise makers and we were supposedly extra loud nosebleed guests :-).

 Towards the end of the game with the Nuggets handily beating the Bobcats a chant started from the upperdecks; "We Want Tacos" . . . apparently if the Nuggets win and score 110 points Taco Bell gives out one free taco per fan. We fans went home happy on Saturday - a Nugget victory and free tacos :-). After the game Dan, Chris, Ellen, Brian and I met up with Alicia and Forbes, some old friends, to catch up.

On Sunday morning after having a sleepover at David and Gabrielle's house we toured around their neighborhood, Lowry, which is an old Airforce base that's been converted into a housing development.

 For lunch we met up with my friends Adrienne and John who were visiting Colorado from San Diego! Ellen, Chris, my niece Audrey and Brian also joined us at this really yummy vegetarian restaurant, Watercourse. Ellen knit an adorable hat for Audrey - we think she'll grow into it by age 12 or so :-)
