We first went to a grand opening for a Chipotle (Chris' favorite) and were 2 of the first 100 costumers, so we got free water bottles, stickers, and coupons for free burritos.
When July 4th weekend rolled around, we were soooo busy with packing and cleaning the house before the closing on the 6th. What an exhausting process! We did, however, have time to go over to Chris' parents for a July 4th cookout and swim gathering. We had delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, and brats that Tom (Chris' dad grilled) and tons of sugary sweets that Jackie prepared. Chris and I loved her cupcakes!
Later that night, we met up with Aknight at Govnr's Park for dinner and chatted until the mornin' time. Getting together with Aknight has been an all time favorite of mine... I may not add much to the conversation or understand half the stuff they talk about (it's all in code), but I sure do enjoy it. The picture to the left is indescribable....but it definitely sums up the night. (I don't think he knows I took this picture.)
We also went and saw fireworks from Daniel's Park; we were able to see almost all the fireworks that were going off all across Denver. It was amazing and definitely a good spot. The 3rd member of our family, however, doesn't care so much for fireworks. Mick needed a little TLC that night....
The night before the closing, Chris and I went and saw Top Gun at Red Rocks amphitheater. This was one of our favorite dates, even though it drizzled on us a little bit.
And last but not least, we went to Adam and Mallory's wedding (once we got to Texas). It was a beautiful outdoor wedding at the Dallas Arboretum. It was very fun to see friends that we hadn't seen since the wedding, especially Nathan and Molly! We will get them to move to Waco..one of these days. :)
That's all for now! Tomorrow I have my first teacher orientation in Waco...should be fun!
