i feel as though i still have some catching up to do, so here were the happenings from the past two weekends.
saturday 7/9 C and i went to a wedding reception for a co-worker of mine. afterwords we went to a work get together with a bunch of C's co-workers. it was great to meet some people in his "circle" and be included into another part of his life.
@ the wedding receptionon sunday 7/10 we started the day at syrup a fabulous breakfast place in cherry creek north. i highly recommend it! we then headed to the denver museum of nature and science.
spectacular view of downtown denverwe specifically went to this museum to check out the pirate exhibit. it was very cool.

the very first thing you see when you enter this zoo are the giraffe's! get this...you can feed them and touch them. they are right there!
C and his new buddywe saw:

i truly enjoy my one on one time with C. things can definitely get overwhelming and we have a busy few months ahead, but getting away doing things just the two of us is an experience in and of itself.
