Colorado Here We Come!

Our summer vacation is almost here! We are heading to Denver and Boulder. We plan to hit all the museums, zoos, and shopping! One trip that I am looking forward to is a trip to the the famous Tattered Cover Book Store in historic LoDo. I love to visit book stores in other states. I always walk away with some unknown treasure.

Another trip I am excited about is the Celestial Seasonings tour in Boulder. Yep, the tea company! We’ll tour the facility, sample some teas and have lunch. The kids will love that!

There is also a ton of shopping between Denver and Boulder. I plan to hit all the spots but I am more of a window shopper than anything. I just like seeing all the different stores and walking amongst the locals. It will be my son’s birthday next week too so we’ll be celebrating his birthday while we are there. My husband is taking him to WaterWorld and a Dodger game and my daughter and I will be taking in the local color. I cannot be in the sun so we we’ll be splitting up activites on some days in order to get it all in. We plan to celebrate his birthday at Casa Bonita. This restaurant has cliff divers! No joke!

I won’t be online while I am gone (which will probably drive me crazy) but I have a few posts scheduled throughout the week so check back for updates. This is what I am taking with me to read:

Special Topics in Calamity Physics, by Marisha Pessl

Septembers of Shiraz, by Dalia Sofer

Barefoot, by Elin Hilderbrand

If I finish all of these I will ask someone at the Tattered Book Store to recommend something. I can’t wait!

  1. Those first two books in your list are excellent choices. Very different books, but they’re both on my list of favorites for this year. I haven’t read the third. And Tattered Covers sounds like a great place! Have a wonderful vacation!
