A Visit with My Baby Brother

Last Friday Ethan and Elise came out for a visit to Denver. We haven't seen them since our tattoo weekend, so it was a wonderful treat.

They arrived on Friday afternoon. We showed them around our neighborhood, including our favorite section of Cherry Creek Trail. 

The next day we took them out to see Red Rocks (of course, right?!).

We can't help it, its just such a fun, pretty park to visit. With great views, good hikes even in the winter, and great food waiting right below, its an easy choice for people's first visit out.

We relaxed and hung out for the rest of the day, including Ethan and I both taking time for homework.

Sunday we headed into the city. We didn't have many specific places in mind, just an idea to show them Denver. The one place we did hit up... VooDoo Donuts! I have been wanting to try them forever, and everyone else was excited about it too.

I forgot a before, but this is a during (we got a dozen):

And this is the after:

They were dang good. Gwen agreed, she was quite pleased with her pick.

After that we walked around Larimer Square and the 16th Street Mall, to help burn off the donuts; then drove by the blue Bear, and the Mile High Field and the Pepsi Center.

Monday it was time for them to head back home. We dropped Gwen off at school in the morning, then headed to the airport. It was sad to see them off, but I'm so glad we got to have a fun weekend with them!
