Denver... Gorgeous

I hope everyone's had a great start to the new year! This month was off to a bit of a slow start, but on the 10th of January, I went on a work trip with my Dad to Denver! We took 2 planes to get there and 2 planes to get back, and we had a big hotel room and shared a huge bed. Get this, the hotel had free breakfast in the mornings, and cookies and milk (and tea for Dad) every night between 8 and 10pm.

My Dad did have the occasional 'meeting' (yawn) but we managed to eat all our meals together and we even went to a Denver Nuggets Basketball Game!! We got seats right close to the floor and sat beside a family who were clearly big fans, and really well connected. I even did 'rocks' with the shooting guard Corey Brewer (he's my favourite player).

We thought we were going to be late for the game, but we hopped in a pedicab and were there in a flash. It was so neat to weave in and out of traffic (although a little cold).

The next day we took a drive to Boulder, and that's where I saw a life size Spiderman! He wasn't real, but it was hard to tell for sure at first. My memory of Boulder? Great Pizza, Spiderman and Coooold.

On our way back to Denver that afternoon we stopped by an old friend of my Dad's place for dinner. More awesome pizza, but more importantly... three kids!! I mean my Dad's fine and all, but after a few days, I needed to be around some people that speak my language: LEGO, bouncy castles, funny jokes, jumping etc.

The next day we took our two planes and made it home in one piece. I was so happy to see my brother again. We were both so excited to be reunited.
All in all, Denver is great, The Nuggets rule, Spiderman is real and it's nice to be home.
