Saturday was so last night minute on our plans. We are never actually in Denver for the 4th so we didn't know What we wanted to do. Last year we were in Sweden and the year before that in the mountains. We ended up getting donuts and heading to the park in the morning, and in the afternoon playing outside and then grilling out at some friends and catching some fireworks from their front porch. Perfect low key 4th!
Waking up Sunday after two days off already (by off I mean Drews off so I have help, which feels like a total vacation) and realizing we still have another whole day together is the best. We decided to go to Confluence Park. Its a tiny little beach along the Platt River right in the middle of Denver. A fun urban little area, minus the homeless guys sleeping on the benches and the broken glass from beer bottles we kept finding.. thank God for the invention of water shoes! The kids had so much fun in the river and digging in the sand. Jasper said 'Its like we are in North Carolina already!' Ha. He has no idea apparently whats in store for him in a week and a half when we get to the Real beach!
After playing at the 'beach' we went and grabbed some delicious burgers and fries before heading home for a late nap (for the kids) and some cleaning for Drew and I.
All in all, a fantastic 3 day weekend! Friday we lave for Iowa and next Wednesday the kids and I head to North Carolina!

^Those Tetons are something else right? ^
^Getting a little steam bath from the hot springs in yellowstone^
^My dad lives on the other side of Yellowstone so we met him halfway!^
^One of my favorites from the whole trip. Hanging out at String Lake in Teton National Park. The water is the warmest because the lake is so shallow. It was breathtaking^
^Lunch In Moose is necessary for these amazing views alone. And Mount Owen Pizza^
^Another favorite, Granite Hot Springs. In the summer the water is about 94 degrees, which is Perfect. We decided Soren needed to come in for a few minutes too and the whole time he just snuggled up against me, in complete heaven. I bet it felt like being in the womb.^
^Coolest restaurants. These two places next to each other have this field in the middle stocked with balls and cones for the kids to play while waiting for our food. It was the most relaxing dining experience with kids probably ever. We went to one one night, and tried to go to the other restaurant the next night but they had a big bridal party there and it was an hour wait to sit outside so we found somewhere else to eat^
^Town Square. Notice Tindra's eyes..she was ridiculously tired that day^
