Denver & Cheyenne Botanic Gardens








We've been visiting a lot of gardens lately! First, we went to the Denver Botanic Gardens on free museum day, then enjoyed the Cheyenne gardens last weekend while in town, and yesterday I volunteered at the Pumpkin Festival in the Chatfield Botanic Gardens! Unfortunately I have no pictures of the latter. It was so much fun! Acres and acres of land were covered in cornstalks and pumpkins, and when they opened the gates, throngs of people swept in with their little kids dressed in costume (in spite of the drizzly weather). Each one eagerly searched for the perfect pumpkin. We are thoroughly enjoying all the colors of fall and the festivities that come along with it!

Brenna! Congratulations on finishing the half marathon! You are amazing. I am going to try and do one in March... we'll see. :) So excited for you to play in the symphony too! Way cool.

I love reading all the fun stuff that you're doing in CO, and makes me want to get out and explore TX...sort of. Most weekends I just want to sleep and try to get the house clean, but one of these days I'll use your inspiration and get out on the town.
