Colorado – Day 1 October 5, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — chippinaway @ 8:26 pm

Well, in case you didn’t already know, I have the best husband ever. He surprised me with a long weekend trip to Denver, Colorado! We decided we needed to take a trip to reconnect, relax, and regroup after the boys left. I knew we were going somewhere…but Denver was a big surprise. Yay!

So, we arrived on a Friday night, so day 1 officially began on Saturday. Saturday we went to the zoo! Denver has a really neat zoo so we decided to go first thing in the morning. Here are some pictures:


After we went to the zoo, we headed to a famous candy factory called Hammond’s.  This place was seriously amazing.  They hand-make all of their candy using the same equipment they’ve had since the early 1900s.  We got to watch them pulling and twisting candy canes.  They even hand-wrap them and package them.  Everything is by hand.  So neat!  We enjoyed our time there, can you tell?

  1. My daughter lives in the foothills just west of Denver. She loves it. They go to Red Rocks Park a lot.
