Our Trip to Denver, Colorado!

Jason and I recently traveled to Denver for a fun weekend away! Cody stayed with my mom and they had a great time. Bubbie took him to the pet store and now we can't wait to take him back after hearing from her how much he enjoyed looking at everything there. I know he was in great hands while we were gone! We had a nice weekend away together and celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary a little early(Feb. 19th).

Last summer I mentioned that our good friends, Mark and Priscilla Young, were moving to Denver because Mark accepted the job as the 7th President of Denver Seminary. You can read about it here. Well, we got invited to the Inauguration events and 60th anniversary of the Seminary. We were so honored to be invited and blessed to be able to attend such a special and meaningful event!

The Gala was Friday night and we enjoyed riding to the event with our friends, the Pembertons. David and Brandi live in Austin and we don't get to see them very much so it was a great time to get to catch up wtih them. We were served a wonderful sit down dinner, followed by great speakers who all were a part of the seminary in one way or another.

Saturday afternoon we went to lunch with the Cleggs and Hayes. We took them to Noodles and Company and then walked over to Sees Candies. We managed to eat at Noodles two times in the 3 days we were there....its that good! Jason and I then visited the Columbine Memorial and went to see the Youngs new house.

Saturday evening, the Youngs invited their close friends and family for dinner and casual hang-out. We has a great time visiting and getting to spend time with them once all the formal events were over. :) They had a great group from Stonebriar come and support them and we all had a great time getting to hang out together in Colorado!
