Last week we were lucky to have a visit from my parents and my brothers. Unfortunately for them, it wasn’t much of a vacation because we had a long list of projects for them to help us with. Still, we managed to squeeze in some fun celebrating my Dad’s birthday (Happy 50th!) and showing them some of the local sites they missed out on the last time they visited Colorado. In less than a week we managed to drive on the highest paved road in North America, “climb” a 14-er, light up one closet, eat at a delicious Italian restaurant, shop at a giant outlet mall, dig a giant stump out of our yard, check out the historic Boettcher Mansion (at least the outside), prune the dead limbs out of our trees, and walk around historic downtown Denver.
