It’s been a wondrous, albiet very go-go-go, past two weeks. Hense the lack of blogging. I aim to fill you all in on all the good stuff today!
My Mama and Papa Dubs (aka best inlaws ever.) were in town for the past two weeks for both (Dr.!) Weez’s Ph.D. defense as well as his 30th birthday over the weekend. They just left town yesterday. Boo.
They spectated our Bolder Boulder 10K (yikes, I should get that recap up sometime. Spoiler: we goofed off, ate jello shots, did the slip-n-slide, and danced our way to the finish line and had a BLAST)….
We grilled out at our condo; we grilled out at their trailer/campground…
Cabo and Mocha (Weez’s family dog!) got lots and lots of lovin’. When you’re with 4 huge dog-lovers, the pups are bound to be spoiled a lot :)
We wine and dined around town… We played puttputt (Mama Dubs got a hole-in-one, Papa Dubs is a semi-pro, and I was the clear champion comin’ in with 15+ more strokes than everyone else. Higher score is better in golf, right?!)…
We took the super fun, oldschool Cog Railway up to the top of Pike’s Peak – elevation: 14,110ft!
Then the craziest thing happened…. we ran into our bffs and godson on the top of Pike’s Peak! Completely unplanned! They – like us – made the spontaneous last minute decision to experience the Cog Railway Train and we just so happened to be on the same train on the same day.
Weez’s folks’ vacay came to a close on Sunday when we celebrated Weez’s 30th birthday (check #15 off my list of 27-before-27!). Complete with his favorite homecooked-meal (Chicken and Rice) and dessert (Apple Cake). We polished off the night with a bottle of champagne and Weez’s big surprise birthday present.
For his present, I surprised Weez with plane tickets to fly back home to Michigan (this Friday!) and his wristband for the 2-day, Orion Music Festival, where Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against (and more!) are playing. He totally didn’t see it coming. He freaked. #wifepoints.
It’s been a glorious 2 weeks, but I’m not quite ready to settle back into routine :P Did I mention our bffs/godson’s parents are living with us this week? I lovelovelove it. We should be permanent roomies. You don’t need to move back to Missouri next week! Don’t leave us! :)
Life is great.
