Week 1 Denver and we have been having a great time! As one Daddy in the park described our new neighborhood of Park HIll - its like a fairy tale place to live for little kids! Really there is not much to complain about here other than the HORRIBLE lack of cell service...and what I mean by horrible is non-existent service. Otherwise it has been pretty picturesque! Our days have been filled with walks to the park and farmer's markets, setting up the new house, making some new friends, and patiently trying NOT to kill Doc.
Saturday we spent the day unpacking some more and setting up shop here on Holly Street. Either it is a tiny house - or we have way too much STUFF! - Or perhaps it is a little bit of both!! But we are slowly getting settled in and the Halloween/Fall decoration up. Sunday Daddy had the grand plan of heading out to the Rocky Mountain National Park - as did thousands of other people. The traffic to the park was pretty intense. Luckily for us you slept most of the way - and ate your beloved graham crackers! Once inside the park you and I got our first glimpse of life 12000 feet above sea level! Suprisingly no headaches or nausea thank God! But it was pretty windy up there - and definitely NOT the 95 degrees it was back in the city. We had a great time poking around the grand Rockies - although Zorro HATED it - I think he prayed for someone to dognap him and get him out of there! On our way home we stopped at Estes Park and walked around the town - along with the thousands of others who thought that would be a great idea as well. It was a great little town, albeit completely rampant with tourists, with of course some pretty mediocre restaurants. On our long drive home we saw Big-horned Elk clashing roadside. It was pretty amazing to see - what was even more amazing were the people getting out of their cars to watch and take pics - mere feet from the ELK -that could easily taken them out of the heavy traffic congestion - FOREVER!!
All in all it was a great week with an even greater weekend! I even successfully got the toothbrush with toothpaste INTO your mouth for a full 30 seconds! This place must be a fairy tale! Next up is a play date tomorrow afternoon at the zoo with a little boy we met and his mommy! I am sure it will be fun - if for nothing other than to have someone to share our graham crackers with!
I love you Mr monkey mash! And I love the fun we are having as our family grows - stronger not bigger for heavens sake! Now we just have to conquer this cold/allergy bug and all will be well in fairy land!
I love you! Love, Mommy
