Travels: 63 miles driving around (4299 total miles)
Accommodations: Continued at Jellystone RV Park, Castle Rock, CO

We had a mellow morning in the trailer- playing, reading books, and Dave worked. After lunch, I took the kids to The Wildlife Experience museum in Parker, CO with Carlie and her friend and their kids. It was a great kid museum – great hands-on activities, fun and creative exhibits, and a very interesting movie on Dolphins and Whales – the kids loved it!

Then, we stopped by a great park in Castle Pines to let the kids and mamas play. We left just as it started rainy – nice call Connor. We went back to Carlie’s and got ready to go out – JUST ADULTS!. The kids had two babysitters, pizza, popsicles, and sleeping bags. They were set, and Dave and I after having almost NO kid-less time in the last month were excited to go to downtown Denver (Lo Do Denver).

We left around 5:30 and took the light rail (E Line) to Denver from a stop near Carlie and Sean’s house. We went out to dinner at a cool place called Zengo (it is a Richard Sandoval restaurant and there are different ones around the US) – an Asian/Mexican Fusion restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing!! Still dreaming about a couple of the dishes. Don’t you love it when you go to a restaurant that is that good?

After dinner, we went for a stroll down the fun LoDo area- as we headed out it started to sprinkle and as we continued on it started to rain and then rain sideways. Carlie and I were wearing rain jackets over light “cute” tops accompanied with the SoCal fav of flip-flops. The guys had shoes but no rain jackets. We had some handy purse size umbrellas, but the rain was successful at dampening us quite a bit. By the time we turned around on our little sight-seeing walk and headed toward our next stop we were moving at a pace similar to a trot.

Escaping the rain, we went to one of the most fun places I have ever been – Sing Sing – a mix of piano and other instruments, amazing singing of any and every cover, comedy, and audience participation. It was hilarious and fun! Dave said he could go all the time! Great times with great friends. Thanks Sean and Carlie for such a great time!

Note: After our fun, late night, and with kids to sleep we got a reprieve from the trailer and spent the night on a King size bed (full length!) in a real house. Ah, the simple things in life!
