My wonderful husband surprised me a few weeks ago with a very good idea. He discovered that the newest Disney musical the Little Mermaid was opening in Denver before it opens on Broadway. It was so amazing how they translated water to stage, even better was how they did land and water together. The costumes were also great Ursala was amazing. The seagulls were so funny. The new music added was awesome as were the familiar songs. The new song Pooituvitity (sp) was great! It was a very cool experience this show before seeing glimpses in media and having the opportunity to be completely surprised!

This weekend we headed to Denver and enjoyed a very relaxing weekend he even booked us at the wonderful Warwick hotel in a mini suite with a fabulous view of downtown Denver and and an even better view from the rooftop pool. The first night we had a wonderful romantic dinner (with a window view of a great flash flood and lightening storm) and headed to the show. After the show and two harrowing cab rides in the rain we sat on our porch and watched the rain.

The next day we woke up and headed downtown to the 16th street mall, enjoyed a great lunch at a little corner bar. I had a great time taking pictures of all of the cool old buildings (if you have been to Vegas you will understand why I was so excited.) We also enjoyed a bit of shopping a couple of galleries in Writer Square and a wine tasting. Finally we headed to the airport to go home. Overall it was a great little trip *thanks honey.*

A view from our hotel of downtown and a very cool parking garage, yes that silver building is a parking garage!

More views from our 9th story porch the storm , and rain on downtown Denver.

Cool building

More cool buildings

Wait! There are no pictures of us or the Little Mermaid ooops I guess I got lost in looking at all of the great old building and the storm, that and being worried about getting my camera taken away at the show.

A few pictures and updates

I took my camera to school I can't publish identifiable photos of my kids but I loved this one, they kept telling me how they were best friends for today.

This weekend the long awaited 7th book of Harry Potter came out. My hubby kidnapped my camera for a few pictures of me reading and my poor Lucy abandoned by Harry Potter.

I have also been enjoying my hubby being off for a week while I worked. He has been making wonderful meals but the only one I took pictures of I can't post since it is his special recipe.

4th of July

Okay so it is the 6th I am a little slow.

I love the 4th of July it is such a great time for family to gather and just relax. Here are some of my favorite pictures from my families 4th of July party there were about 40 people all trying to keep cool in the pool. I love all of the great food, everyone has a special recipe and some even try something new (Joan the pink fluffy thing was GREAT!)

Sydney and her first sparkler
My sister enjoying a blast from the past a refreshing bomb pop (we were very surprised to realize how many of the younger kids 21 and below that did not know what a bomb pop was.)
Grandpa floating along
Anthony diving, I love how it looks like he is doing a hand stand on the water.
I love my new camera and so does everyone else, and they love to take their turn playing. I am not sure who took this one but it is great to have many pictures with me in it, even better a swimming picture that is not scary.
My Auntie Patty and I checking out Miss Sydney's 4th of July outfit.
Trey is 4 and he was very impatiently waiting the 20 minutes after he ate to go back into the pool. He was told "You can go back into the pool when the black hand gets to the 6" he replied about 30 seconds later "Why not the red hand that one is moving the black one is never going to move."
