Day 1 – Thur 2/11
One of the advantages of our move is that we are a lot closer to the Denver airport – only about a 30 minute drive instead of 90. So we only had to get up a little earlier than normal to catch our 8:30am flight. I had originally booked a flight two hours earlier, then quickly thought better of it. Not much good would come of making rope-drop if we did so completely sleep deprived and grumpy.
We always park at an off site lot because it’s usually easier and faster, but we ran into a strange little traffic jam on the road leading up to the lot, and then the shuttle bus was slower than normal getting on its way. So we were cutting it a little closer than I would have liked by the time we got there.

Lily had a swim meet in Grand Junction, and since it was during the 4th of July week that Brian had off from work, we thought we would make a whole vacation of it!
On the way, we stopped in Breckenridge for lunch, and we ended up at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory! Not the best food, but fun to eat at such an iconic place. And the kids enjoyed that we sat outside on the second-story patio.
We made a quick weekend trip to Albuquerque for Lily’s swim meet.
We had a bit of drama when we first arrived as the hotel had seemingly lost our reservation, but we were able to find something else nearby. The only free time we had was Saturday afternoon, and we chose to spend it at the science museum. They also had a traveling Titanic exhibit that Lily really enjoyed.
