we recently went on a nice little road trip to Colorado to visit Chris' family and take a nice week long vacation. we were spoiled by the gorgeous weather and by his generous family. the day we got into town (july 2) we went to his grandma's assisted living apartment to watch fireworks. we all sat outside in lawn chairs and blankets in the grass. it was the perfect start to a relaxing week. the next day we went to Coors Field to watch the Royals kick the Rockies butt, er... i mean... to watch a friendly game of baseball. ;) let's just say, i was the only one who left happy.
