I had so much fun with Michelle on our quick trip to Denver last week.  We decided we've not had that much time alone together for at least 12 years.  I'd say we were long overdue!

Reunited and it feels so good!
We did lots of talking and laughing.  There were lots of U-turns and picture taking.  We visited old apartments and other places of significance. 

Helga's German Restaurant was for certain a highlight.  My mouth watered for weeks before I even got there.  We enjoyed schnitzel and conversation with our neighboring table.

Jaegar schnitzel, spaetzle, and red cabbage

We did some shopping followed by happy hour with cocktails, guacamole, and people watching - my favorite things!
The next day before we headed out to Lilith Fair, we went skydiving.  Yes, you heard me correctly!  Skydiving.  Okay, INDOOR skydiving but still.  We had so much fun!  And we looked like dorks doing it!  Good times!
All the fun without all that pesky worry about possible death
Ready to fly!
Sweet googles
Hahahahahahaha!  And we wore helmets in the tunnel.  Holy rat's nest.
So Lilith Fair.  My official report - not nearly like it was 12 years ago but still fun.  We wandered through the tents and heard some music on the small stages.  We found shade and hung out till it was time for the bands to start on the main stage.  

Ingrid Michaelson was awesome.  Her set was great and she was really funny.  It was especially fun when she and her band closed with "Toxic" by Britney Spears complete with choreography.  This video isn't from our show but it's still fun to watch here.

Of course, Sarah MacLachlan was who we were really there to see.  She was amazing as usual.

A gorgeous Denver sky
It was a great trip. I'm hoping for an annual sisters only trip!  Love you, Sha!

Today we are...

working on potty training and drinking from a cup.

Nate's been very good about using the potty (pee only).  I bought him some cute little unders... I can't believe it's that time already.

Wish me luck!

Be-Be-Be-Benny and the Jetsssss...
I don't know where he gets his fashion sense. Today he used Bosco's collar as his Mr. T starter set.  When I told him he couldn't have it around his neck in the car, he was so defiant "No, Mama, NECK!"  Rest assured, I won that argument.
Riding in the car IS a great time to catch up on all the news of the world. Ha!

Much better
