I cannot believe it's Friday already. Where, oh where did my spring break go?! Oh yeah...something about Grandma and my niece visiting.
We have had such a fantastic time, I'm really sad that they're leaving tomorrow. Not to mention that DS is flying out with XH, too, so I'll go from lots of company to zero company. Yesterday we went and toured Dinosaur Ridge (dinosaur fossil site, basically), which I've run up and over (glancingly longingly at the signs I wanted to read but couldn't stop for
). It was really cool, and I can't believe I've lived here nearly 10 years and never done it. Super cheap, and really interesting! Then we went for a drive through Red Rocks amphitheater, since my mom had never seen it. To top it all off, we ended up taking the kids to Casa Bonita for dinner. Holy moley. Some of you may have heard of it (it was immortalized in a South Park episode!)...it's an absolutely crazy restaurant. They have cliff divers, pirates, mariachi bands, an arcade, and on and on. The kids LOVED it. The food is pretty bad (although actually not as bad as I had been led to believe), but it was made up for by the spectacle of the place. We will be returning, for sure. Today was slightly more low-key, mostly because we had to wait around for delivery of DS's new mattress set. We went out for breakfast to a place that I've been dying to try since it opened about a year ago (YUM
), back to clean out/reorganize DS's room and wait for the mattress, out shopping for new bedding, then a Costco run, back to the hotel to take the kids swimming, and then finally back to my place. DS and his cousin are asleep in his new big boy bed, and grandma took my car back to her hotel so I don't have to go get her in the morning. What a crazy week it's been! SO awesome, though. Grandma pretty much rocked the house...she paid for everything, but especially DS's mattress and the Costco stock-up.
No fm today, but I kind of feel like chasing after two four year olds had to have burned SOME calories, right?
I'll have to get out for something tomorrow after I get back from delivering everyone to the airport...
