out of state

This weekend we took a little trip. We drove about 17 miles past the Colorado border to visit uncle Lee in Cheyenne. It was Mason's first trip out of state and he did great! It was about a 5 hour drive, but he slept most of the way there and back. Except for a little stop and go traffic in Denver, (a crying baby and rush hour are not a good combo) he was out. As long as the car was moving, he was good to go. On Saturday we put Mason in the sling and headed out for a walk around town.
Mission: Starbucks, the church where Lee works, and checking out a little bakery. The church was really neat, I think he said it was built in the 1930's. He even showed us part of the underground tunnels. The sanctuary was beautiful with lots of stained glass windows. Mason slept through the whole thing:)

After that we walked to Starbucks where Lee helped me create and order the perfect drink: A pumpkin spice chai cream frappuccino. Pure deliciousness. It's a really good thing there isn't a Starbucks here in town:) Then we headed to the bakery and got some rolls and cookies for lunch. We packed a picnic lunch and headed to the botanical gardens and greenhouse. It was beautiful weather to walk around and check out all the flowers and plants. Ryan and I got a few ideas for our greenhouse and garden. Then it was back to Lee's house where Mason decided to have a major blowout and we had to scrub and scrub throw away his clothes:) Good times.

Thanks, Uncle Lee for a great visit. We can't wait to come back and see you again.
