Vacation Catch-Up

Addison passed along her birthday germs, bless her heart, so she and I were both sick for Thanksgiving. Fortunately, it was a short-lived bug and we were both up and feeling good(-ish) the next day.

Friday afternoon we dressed in our Colorado finery - which Rachel describes as “jeans, boots and fancy sweaters” - 

and headed into Denver for dinner (at Sam’s Diner #3, a downtown institution) and a show.

Rachel scored tickets to Movie At The Symphony’s performance of Home Alone - Addy’s favorite movie - with the Colorado Symphony and Choir providing the musical score.

So much fun.

I’d forgotten how funny that movie is. Doesn’t seem possible it was made 21 years ago. 

Today, at Addy’s request, we went painting. 

This was a first for me, although Rachel and Addy have done it before.

The instructor took us step-by-step through the featured painting,

with varying degrees of success on our part.

I’m definitely not going to win any art prizes,

but it was ridiculously fun, we all had a great time and I can’t wait to get home and do it again.
