We had to go to downtown Denver for sure. We had reservations to go on the Banjo Billy Bus tour, which is a must as far as I'm concerned. It's a lot of fun and you get to see a lot of the downtown and decide what you want to go back and see more of. Check out the link. The bus has no windows and it started to rain but that didn't keep us from having a lot of fun and learning where all the skeletons are buried in Denver!
Colorado Convention Center, home of our famous Blue Bear. Why a blue bear? Why not!?!
Denver has made downtown 16th street into a pedestrian walking plaza. They recently purchased pianos that they set out during the day for anyone who wants to play. Like any large metropolitan city, there are the usual characters (why was that man dressed up like a robot?), art work, music and various shows going on. We ended up helping this young man with his magic show. He was really good.
Last year I took Janice to the Dumb Friends League rescue shelter and she almost took home a dog so we were on orders not to go there this year. She has 8 dogs already! Instead I surprised her with a visit to the Alameda East Veterinary Hospital. If you are a diehard pet person like she is you would remember back when Alameda East Veterinary Hospital had a television show. We both watched it religiously. When I started to pull into the parking lot she started yelling! When we walked in, she started tearing up! I do believe that if Dr. Fitzgerald had walked out she would have fainted! It was so much fun!!!!
On Mother's Day we stayed home because we had a huge snow storm (I know - in May!). Janice had to leave early, early the next day so she had to take a shuttle to the airport. I wouldn't drive as the roads were horrible. As usual, by afternoon they were all clear. Colorado weather - sheesh!!!
All in all we had a great, albeit too short, time. You'll never guess what we plan on doing next visit! Go on - try to guess! I dare you!
