I've been out and about enjoying the holiday season in Denver. I tried to find the perfect outdoor skating rink, but I failed miserably. Loren, Marie & I ended up going to Flatiron Crossings. The rink was soooo tiny and overun by wild children and the like, but we had a great time nevertheless, and it was a nice first skate of the season. I'm used to skating in subzero temperatures, so a nice 40 degree day was so perfect!
I was the Denver Botanic Garden's 1,000th fan on Facebook, so I won 2 tickets to both of their holiday events. I took a tour of their administrative building last week, which is in a beautiful old mansion on York. Doris showed me everything including the top secret staircase! On Thursday evening, Marie & I went to Blossoms of Light. It was so impressive!! I wish there would've been live holiday jazz music, but oh well anyway.
Just a few more sleeps until Dad, Oliver & I make our long drive to North Dakota. I couldn't be more excited, but I feel like I have so much to get done before I leave. My room literally has never ever been messier and, as per Beth's request, I took some before pictures. I won't be posting those until I have a perfectly clean after picture to show! (And I probably shouldn't even post them then!)
Oliver's getting ready for North Dakota's bitter temperatures...He was slightly underwhelmed, but he'll thank me later. He's so stylish, eh?
