justin and i spent wednesday through sunday in colorado. it was just what we needed before baby scott #2 arrives. we flew into denver and spent the night. from there we headed to buena vista, about 2 hours from denver, for a younglife marriage retreat. i don't think i have laughed so much in years. it wasn't the retreat that was so funny, i was mostly entertained by my husband... the the dumb and dumber lines that colorado inspired.
we spent the night at the four seasons. it was the first time in months i actually fit into the tub!
all the locals we talked to recommended snooze for our breakfast spot. i am pretty spoiled in portland with all our amazing breakfast places, but this spot was a-mazing! justin ordered the pineapple-upside-down pancakes. yum.
this was taken after a bit of road rage by my husband, which i thought was pretty funny.
another amazing denver restaurant. it had a really creative menu, local food, and it was all scrumptous.
we spent the day downtown, it was so fun to be in a new city...but it was cold!

we tried to do a little side trip to a little place called aspen, but the hwy was closed. so close.
our favorite quotes from the weekend:
- I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this
- A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.
- No and I DON'T CARE!
- Uh yea, we are in the Rockies. Jeez!
