Cool Off at Centennial Center Park’s Splash Pad

Sticky with a concoction of sunscreen, sweat, and pet fur, we naturally gravitated toward visiting the splash pad at Centennial Center Park a couple weekends ago.  ZB, our daughter, fancies herself a little Nemo so it didn’t take much convincing her to search for a water adventure.

Donuts & Choo-choos Downtown

One of ZB’s favorite words right now is “choo-choo.” We play “choo-choo” more than anything else with her Brio set just like the one I played with when I was a kid. She is always on the look out for “choo-choos” and lets us know when she spies or hears one. RTD Light Rail: Denver’s …

Trout Steak Revival at the Gothic Theatre

The college kid who maneuvered into a seat next to us was a fanatic for Trout Steak Revival. He was so pumped about the show, speaking at us a million miles a minute about how great the band was.
