Labor Day Weekend

Hi All

Had a relaxing weekend. Started off with Allen getting Friday off so we went to Yoga, then lay by the pool, had lunch, went shopping, enjoyed ice cream and finally picked up the children from school! We'd booked a baby sitter from 5 to 9pm so we had a night out with the neighbours - Tim and Betsy. It was a fun night with cocktails at the Cruise Room which had been frequented by the Clinton's and, after a few more beers, we got back to sleeping children. So a good start to the long weekend. Saturday Allen played in a pool competition with Tim in aid of a cancer charity. We then had a BBQ with a few of the neighbours. There are 2 photos, one of Mallory and Abi in the jeep and then a general view of everyone next door.

Sunday started with breakfast out then shopping for shoes for school and finally swimming. Monday we went off to the Taste Of Colorado, a festival held Downtown - the photo of Jacob and Abi with a Blue Bear was outside the Expo centre. We thought we'd be able to try specialities of Denver but it was a bit too mixed for us. Allen had wanted to sample Colorado Oysters (bull's testicle's) but no luck! We finished the day with a water fight in the street to cool down.

Mum and Dad arrive in a week, can't wait. Have booked a couple of nights away for Allen and me in Boulder. A town north of here with very good restaurants.

Ballet and soccer start this week. I'm putting Abi in a more serious class so we'll see how she does. Got a DVD out to show Jacob the rules of soccer!

Off to cut our jungle of a back yard now. Hope all's well

Hi There! Sounds like a nice weekend. We picked up your dates and will mark them in the calendar. We'll see you somewhere along the way. So far, I've been busy with substituting -- 5 days last week, 3 days this week. Hopefully it keeps up. Our best, Carrie
