2020 – what a crazy year! Normally our summers are filled with more activities, but this year summer has looked a little different for us! I realized August was just around the corner and we had done none of our normal summer outings! So Andrew and I decided it was time to get living again and do the things that make us feel happy and connected!
Our first trip was to the Denver Botanic Gardens – a favorite of Andrewâs! Andrew is happiest when he is out in nature. He has created an incredible backyard living space with all kinds of beautiful plants and this year he added a vegetable garden! So a trip to the Botanic Gardens is not only a lovely summer afternoon out and about, but research for what he wants to plant next! I was most excited to see the baby ducks!
The next week we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – because we had to go meet the new baby moose!!! We both LOVE going to the zoo and we canât wait to share that with a child! We make sure we go to the zoo wherever we travel – so weâve seen quite a few zoos! Cheyenne Mountain Zoo stays at the top of our list – we love how the zoo is laid out and the different perspectives you get of where the animals are! This was our best zoo trip in a long time – so many animals were out and about and we got to listen to a couple zookeeper talks! It was such a great day and we got to eat at our favorite German restaurant- Edelweiss.
