Today Chris, Mary, Sofia and Layla left for an early 2 mile walk to the farmer's market only to find the Farmer's Market wasn't there as advertised. Too tired to walk back and had to call David for a ride home. Meghan finally got to sleep till 9 am! After brunch we made a mad dash to Target to load up on baby swim gear, sun block, hats in preparation for an afternoon at the neighborhood pool. Sofia looked adorable in her tiny bikini, and we were so excited for her first swimming adventure. Much to our dismay, both pools were closed due to kiddie contamination.
Denver restaurants are something we relish. Our Gayla Farewell dinner last night was at Cork House. Our first course was a 5-cheese flight which included grapes, apples, crackers and candied walnuts that we enjoyed with a cold, crisp pinot grigio. It doesn't get any better than dinner out on the patio enjoying the view of the mountains. Brunch today at Lola's in downtown Denver featured a modern Mexican infused menu. For example, David's favorite hot dog and chips served Lola's style became a chorizo wrap with plantain chips, habanero ketchup, and jicama slaw. On your next trip to Denver, ask Meghan and Chris to take you there. Chris is in the kitchen right now making our last meal and we can't wait to see his final production!
We are so very proud of Chris and Meghan and how they are raising Sofia and making a wonderful life for themselves here in Denver. They have been really great hosts and it is so much fun to come out and visit!!
Below are pictures from our trip.
Multi-tasking: Having breakfast while playing with Sofia.
Dinner with Sofia at the Cork House. She slept through most of it, but she isn't 21 yet anyway!!
Dinner at the Cork House! Mmmm! Cheese and wine. :)
Ready for the pool!
We got the trip underway on Thursday night by playing Dance Dance Revolution with Meg and Chris. It was impossible not to laugh while trying to concentrate on the dance moves.
We may have a future spelunker on our hands!
Absolutely captivating! Sofia's noises, giggles, coos and smiles were nothing but a magnet for all our attentions!

Pikes Peak or Bust!....well, we almost made it. This is just outside of Garden of the Gods.
