I hope you all had a happy Memorial Day and are all safe and not in jail or anything. We all had a pretty good day, we had planned to go to the Denver Zoo but by the time we got there the ticket line was several hundred people long (slight exaggeration) and there was no where to park. So we left. The zoo is cool and all but not worth waiting in line for an hour to get in, no offense zoo. Plus, the new Toyota Elephant Passage doesn’t open till Friday. Had we gone in, we could have paid $5 to get a sneak peak of it though.
Anyways, we didn’t go in. We took a little drive around town and then hit up King Soopers for some grilling goods. And let us just suffice it to say that they were good, good and plenty. And Eliza took a nap. This isn’t normally noteworthy but it was a nap while both Amanda and I were here. This doesn’t happen too often, so it was kind of nice. We didn’t really do anything, just ate, sat together on the sofa and watched some episodes of Modern Family. But there was no baby to feed or to cry or to entertain for about an hour. It was like a micro-vacation or something. Pretty nice every once in a while.
And then it was off to the park. The park is always good for a little bit of fun. Eliza got to swing in the swing again. She is a lot more steady in the swing than last time. She barely flopped around at all in it today. She’ll be swinging the swing all the way around the pole pretty soon if she keeps up this pace of swinging efficiency improvement.
So that was pretty much what happened on our first Memorial Day, just in case you were wondering. I would be remiss if I were not to give a hearty thanks to all the men and women who have given so much to our country and have made it possible for me to write my little blog and live the life that I do.
