Gobble, Gobble, Drink

My husband and I flew to Colorado to spend our first Thanksgiving as a married couple with my little sister. Here’s what we did:

  • Ran a 4 mile “Thanksgiving Run” race. Well, one of us (ahem, ME) ran it, and the other one of us went to Starbucks and took pictures. At least I have a supportive husband!
  • Drank mimosas.
  • Drank wine.
  • Ate. A lot. Pants were unbuttoned. And then pictures were shared online of a tired wife sleeping with her pants still unbuttoned and her gut hanging out.
  • Toured a Budweiser Brewhouse.
  • Drank beer.
  • Visited a local Fort Collins microbrewery. Obviously, drank more beer.
  • Shopped at REI.
  • Skied at Eldora Mountain Resort in the Roosevelt National Forest.
  • Ate sushi.
  • Drank sake.
  • Hiked Devil’s Backbone in Loveland.
  • Shopped at the REI flagship store in Denver.

Most of the things in my list above simply cannot be done with kids – especially babies. Or when you’re pregnant. I would have thought that touring a brewery wouldn’t be very kid-friendly, but surprisingly, at least half the people on our tour were small children! Those kids could really throw them back though!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving. Jeremy says Skiing is on our ‘pre-kids’ list, and we’re probably going to knock that out Christmas next year in Colorado. Me, I’ll take to the bunny slopes like a good sport, but I’m most looking forward to the ski lodge!

      Ooohhh, Dan and I are hoping to be in Colorado next year for Christmas also and if we are, we’ll defnitely want to hit up the ski slopes with my family. It would be fun to meet up and ski together! Is Jeremy a pretty good skier/does he ski much? Or is he a snowboarder like Dan?
