Labor Day Weekend with My Mama!
My mama spent the long Labor Day weekend with us and it was absolutely wonderful. Having her with us makes me so happy. Every moment that we spend together is good.
We enjoy the little things, walking the dogs, sipping coffee in the morning, researching travel, shopping. Having her around doing all those things makes it so fun.
We also did a lot of special activities.
On Friday, we tried to go hiking, but rain came so we gave up that plan. Instead, we went to the Museum of Art and looked at art. We truly enjoyed the dance exhibit. We walked outside the museum and previewed the Taste of Colorado and got henna tattoos. We watched a movie that night and snacked on popcorn in the lower living room.
The next day we watched the boys play tennis and then took the light rail back downtown and spent the day at Taste of Colorado, eating, sipping and listening to music. The boys had a great time racing around in giant hamster wheels and making crafts.
On Sunday we drove up to Boulder and checked out a classic car show, perused the booths at the Hometown festival and wandered up and down Pearl Street shopping and watching the street performers. We drove back into Denver in time to be at Root Down when it opened and snag a booth for an amazing meal.
Monday Michael had to fly out, but mom and I took the boys hiking at Deer Creek canyon and then drove over to Red Rocks. We climbed up the stairs and checked out the view and acoustics and then had lunch at a bistro in Morrison. It was lovely.
That afternoon, the kids played in the neighborhood, riding scooters and trading pokemon cards and mom and I spent all afternoon researching travel. I had the best time.
On our last morning together we went on a long walk, shopped a bit at the South Glenn Mall and had pho for lunch.
My mama is my very best friend. I love her so much. I am so lucky to have her. It was a great weekend.
