The Weekend Recap: Hello Outside! 

Our weekend was PACKED full of fun times, especially outside. The weather was AMAZING and finally feels like spring (or more like summer for the Coloradans). THIS is some weather I can get with. Bring on the shorts and sandals and see ya later pale skin! 

So as soon as Caleb woke up from his nap on Friday, we headed to the zoo. Caleb has never been to a zoo ever which was apparent when we saw farm animals and he kind of freaked. I didn’t have super high expectations but Nick was pumped and I knew it would be a fun day outdoors regardless. Well Caleb LOVED it. 

We took his wagon just in case but he was all about running to each exhibit and looking for the animals (and then having his daddy lift him up to get a good view). 

He was still quite the gentleman and offered to help with the wagon every once in a while. 

Seeing the monkeys was definitely a fave. He did a lot of ‘OOH OOH AHH AHH’ to get a good chat in with them. 😉 

I think it’s safe to say that he will want to go back sooner than later. 

On Saturday, Nick and I were able to celebrate our anniversary thanks to some awesome friends that let little man hang out with them all day. According to this picture, he looks like he was pretty content with the whole arrangement. 

While he was busy flirting, Nick and I went to downtown Denver and hung out. They recently redid Union Station and it is SO cute. 

We grabbed some iced coffee and started walking the 16th Street Mall. 

The weather was fantastic! I was loving soaking up the sun. We sat on the patio outside Union Station for a bit because, well, people watching. Then we headed to dinner. Nick surprised me with a reservation at..

Or in my world it’s known as Justin Timberlake’s restaurant. And the food was SO STINKIN GOOD. There are no pictures to document it because we were too busy eating all of the deliciousness. As we left, Chauncey Billups opened the door for us as he was going in. Don’t know who that is? Yeah, me either. I didn’t realize this was a big deal until Nick started stumbling over his words to tell this stranger ‘What up man!’ He apparently is a retired NBA player. Or as I know him, a really nice stranger that held the door for me. 😉

We then grabbed some ice cream at Union Station and watched all the kids play in the splash pad. It was such a fun night seeing a part of downtown that I hadn’t really seen before! I am definitely becoming a fan of my new town. 🙂 

So on Sunday we had our big student event to kick off the summer.. FSM Ninja Warrior style! This was a crazy fun-filled game-packed two hours. Such a fun hilarious way to kick off the summer! Everyone was pretty much covered in flour or face paint before it was all over. Caleb said UH OH! a lot about all of the messiness. Pretty sure he was thinking that he should have brought his broom. 

To say that we are all a little EXHAUSTED is a tiny bit of an understatement. We need a weekend to recover from the weekend. That’s allowed, right?
