Brett and I had our first whole day together so we decided to go out and explore some of the amazing things CO has to offer! We had an awesome breakfast at Snooze, which is a local breakfast place that has become really popular, maybe even a little famous! I had eggs benedicts that were to die for and Brett had a breakfast potpie with 2 eggs on top. Our waiter also surprised us with a chocolate chip pancake drizzled with chocolate and smothered with peanut butter sauce. Ok, so for those of you who know me, you are probably thinking peanut butter...really? But I have been sampling peanut butter here and there and I am actually starting to like it! And honestly, who couldn't like a chocolate pancake smothered with chocolate and PB!!!!

We also went down to CO Springs to visit Garden of the Gods! It is this amazing place with red rocks jutting out of the earth like buildings! There is something about CO and red rocks and I like it! We walked around the park, visited the cute town of Manitou Springs and just simply got to hang out with each other!

On the way home we also visited the U.S. Air Force Academy. Brett has some family friends who have attended and we figured if we are driving by, why not stop! I am glad we did. We watched a movie in the visitor center and read all about the history! It was really neat plus we got to see some amazing planes on display!

On my way to work! I actually enjoy the 7am bike ride because it is always so sunny and warm!

This is what Brett and I so every night!!
Brett and I have been incredibly.... yup, you guessed it, busy! While I always swear my life will slow down and just settle I am now realizing I bring on the busy but I like it! I have been working at the university for about a month now and I have learned a lot about what I want from a job and that is, I want a teaching job! However, this is a great learning experience and I am meeting some really great people, plus we get free bagels and muffins and we can wear jeans on Friday!

I wanted to post some pictures about out latest adventures! Hopefully you enjoy seeing a glimpse of Denver! It is truly an awesome city!!!

Brett and I ride our bike everywhere!

Red Rocks amphitheater. There is still no place like the Gorge but this amazing place is 20 minutes away and sooooo breathtaking!

Red Rocks hosts a movie every Tuesday night so Brett and I went with a bunch of his nursing school friends and watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off! Well worth the $10 tickets!

My mom called me on Friday and said they were dying to get out of the horrible GH weather so they came and visited for the weekend! It was sooooo much fun!

Thanks for following us!

Love, B and K8
