Exploring the Possibilities

The "Pickles" have only been gone for a week but we miss them terribly.

I've spent the last few days taking advantage of their absence by doing some deep cleaning since I don't need to worry about having everything cluttered up anytime soon. But deep cleaning is not my idea of a fun-filled summer so once Mr. LH's Summer Semester at the school is over, we decided we could spend our remaining weeks without the kids by visiting those places they might find less than exciting, like The Molly Brown House Museum.

But when I looked it up, it just so happens that for Molly's 144th birthday, the museum is having a party - with fun activities for the kids. Guess we'll have to take them there sometime anyway (and The Boy is interested in the Titanic almost as much as I am).

Other things going on this month include the 150th annual Arapahoe County Fair and the first annual Denver County Fair. The Colorado Renaissance Festival is still running through the end of July, too.

I'm really interested in venturing up to Wyoming to go to the Cheyenne Frontier Days. It's only a 90 minute drive from Denver. During the day you can watch rodeos, enjoy carnival rides, visit the indian campground (dubbed "Indian Village"), experience the Old West through the museum or the Wild Horse Horse Gulch. At night you can enjoy concerts from some big names in music. This year they have artists such as the Zac Brown Band, Charlie Daniels, Toby Keith, Darius Rucker (and even Motley Crue).

I suppose we could venture over to Golden, CO and take a tour of Coors Brewery - or maybe driving up to Boulder, CO for a tour of Celestial Seasonings. We've also considered visiting the Denver Mint, taking a tour of the Capitol Building or driving up to Central City and Blackhawk.
