Babymoon!

A week ago we returned from our much anticipated babymoon to Denver. (In case you are wondering, babymoon is an actual term...we aren't just making it up. :))


We had such a wonderful time relaxing and getting to spend some quiet time away together before the craziness of the fall semester started.


The weather was perfect...in the 80's with a chance for rain every day.






Here we are at the Denver Aquarium. We had a ton of fun and we can't wait to take our kids along with us next time!







Of course, all of these awesome pictures were taken by the talented photographer.

















































Here are a few pictures from our visit to the capitol...








After our tour of the capitol we met Chris's new colleague, Bryan. They will be working together next fall in Amarillo,





Our next stop was the Hammond's Candy Factory in Denver. We had fun getting to see how they made all of their candies.










Oh, yeah, people were staring...



The next day we ventured to Golden, Colorado...





yep, people were staring again...









Here we are at the Red Rocks- thanks for the suggestion, Monica. They were amazing to see!







Here is a little road that we got lost on. At least this stretch had a guardrail...the road was so narrow and steep that we couldn't turn around. Little scary.




During our time at Colorado Springs we went to see the Seven Falls...



Here we are at the top! I was pretty proud to be able to get up there halfway through my pregnancy.



We took a little trail at the top...




We also went to visit the Cave of the Winds...











Also, we went to the Garden of the gods.




The mountain in the distance covered by the clouds is Pikes Peak.








Later that night we went back to Seven Falls to see it lit up at night...





Here is an awesome ice cream place that we came across...it was heaven.



Our last day we got up extra early to see if we could get a standby ticket into the mint, which we got to do after Chris sprinted back to the car to drop off his cell phone.



We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to get away for a week and spend time together before this semester starts. It was a great time for the two of us to have fun, reconnect, and celebrate everything that is going on in our lives at the moment.

We are so excited to be halfway through our pregnancy! We had the big sonogram yesterday and everything looks great...we can't wait until this weekend to find out if we are having a little boy or girl!
