Colorado Sampler

Wow, it's almost the end of August, and I haven't even written about our trip to Colorado, which happened way back at the end of June. Oh, well, our adventures are worth hearing about, even two months after they happened.

We flew out to Colorado to attend our niece's wedding, but we built in some extra days for sightseeing in and around Boulder. Boulder is a sunny, funky and interesting town. We had fun wandering down the Pearl Street Mall and watching the street performers on our first evening.

The next day, we drove up to Fort Collins, where, in addition to visiting not one, but two yarn stores (one of them was the Loopy Ewe), we also explored Old Town. There were lots of happy things going on in Fort Collins:

Other weekend happenings included a trip to the Boulder farmer's market, a rehearsal dinner where we witnessed a glorious sunset, and, on the morning of the wedding, a hike in Chautauqua Park.

Oh, and by the way, there was a wedding...
