Busy Busy

So far we've already had a really fun-filled weekend.  We started it off last night with dinner and drinks at a neighbor's house.   It was fun to meet new people and everything was delicious.  I had the best hummus there!

This morning we woke up first thing and dropped off Mojo for a long overdue grooming and then went for a nice trail ride at Community Ditch (his grooming takes forever).  It was my first actual trail ride of the season and as it's a pretty easy trail I was glad to get it under my belt before we hit some more difficult ones. 

Then we headed to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science to see the Real Pirates exhibit which showcased the history of The Whydah pirate ship and the discovery of it off the coast of Massachusetts in the early 1980s.  It was extremely interesting to learn the history of the ship and its occupants, as well as the history of pirates in general.  We couldn't take pictures inside the exhibit, but once we got out we did our best pirate poses.

Then we headed over to an engagement party for Chris and Bridget.  Chris was one of the first people I met when I moved to Denver as I sat right by him at work.  We've been friends since and he recently got engaged to the lovely Bridget.  So excited for the happy couple!

Then we headed downtown for dinner at TAG and then attended the Chalk Art Festival at Larimer Square.  Several blocks are closed down and chalk artists create their masterpieces in the streets.  It is amazing what these people can do!

 We ended our evening with some frozen yogurt!

  1. What a fun weekend. They had a similar exhibit on pirates in the Bahamas and it was so interesting. The sidewalk art is amazing. I know we have something similar downtown in the summer here so maybe we will have to check that out this year.
