Memorial Weekend Adventures

Happy Tuesday everyone and I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing Memorial Day weekend filled with fun and family, but don’t forget the real reason we celebrate this holiday 🙂

My weekend was absolutely filled to the brim with friends, fun and food.  The adventures started Wednesday night at a wine bar in Boulder called Cuvee listening to Lea Holz and Steven Quiry play some very pretty music.  Of course, the Citron came with me.

The college nationals for Ultimate Frisbee were being held in Boulder this year as well, so some friends and I went to visit that on Friday and we watched some phenomenal Ultimate being played.  That night, I went to another show in Boulder before meeting some friends who came into town to celebrate a birthday with us for the weekend as well.

While meandering through downtown Denver with those friends this weekend, we happened upon some of the coolest yarn bombing I’ve ever seen in real-life.

There is a big construction area by the train tracks downtown and some guerrilla knitters and crocheters have adorned the protective fence with flowers and other foliage in various colors, sizes, heights and shapes all along the fence-line.  It really does distract from the eye-sore that most construction causes.

And Sunday night we went down to the river to see the Fire Dancers and happened upon a fireworks show as well.  It was a pretty spectacular sight, to see them both, although my camera obviously decided it was going to be selfish and keep only the good shots for itself so that you all just have to come to Denver for a visit yourselves to see the real thing.
