BIRTHDAY/WEDDING WEEKEND...

We enjoyed a little jaunt up to Colorado the last few days!  We were there to celebrate a wedding of a business friend of the hubs and it just happened to be close to our daughter's birthday.  So we were thrilled to get to do both!


She wanted to go to BeauJo's - home of the Colorado Mountain Pie (pizza)!  I don't know if it's famous for the toppings or the crust, but they bring you a bottle of honey to help finish off your crusts...YUM.  One of our favorite guys came along too!


Every birthday girl gets a few gifts, and one thing we gave her was her baby ring.  I don't know if you can tell, but it's on her pinky in this pic and has a little heart on it.  She wanted to put it on a chain to wear it now...



In the morning we went south to walk around the Garden of the Gods before breakfast and saying goodbye to our girl!
Can you spot the climbers up there with the birds??? Crazy if you ask me...


We went to a really yummy breakfast spot in downtown Colo Springs afterwards called Over Easy.  Brunch is really big in Colorado and is getting pretty popular around OKC as well.  Just what I need...



The wedding was held at our friend's house in their backyard.  It was beautiful and they did a lot of work (5 tons of flagstone!) to enhance it and make it great for their wedding.  There were about 50-70 family members and friends coming to celebrate with them.
It was a memorable day and even more so when the minister forgot to tell the groom to kiss the bride!  As they started leaving, someone said, "What about the kiss?"  All of us started chanting, "Kiss the bride, kiss the bride!"  So they came back under the arch and made it official.  It was hilarious!  They had a catered dinner on their upper deck and as you can see it was really nice.  

It's always interesting to get to meet new people and do some different kinds of things.  I had some good conversation with ladies I'll probably never see again, watched some pretty funny dance moves, and some very poignant moments between this newly blended family.

That pizza looks amazing!! (But not a lot of food doesn't look amazing to me right now!) What a fun little get away!
