Sunday in Colorado

8:11 am - fighting over the Wii begins
8:32 am - coffee brewing
9:02 am - search online for fun things to do around Denver for kids because I can't find my book entitled the same
9:27 am - shower
10:32 am - everyone dressed, hair and teeth brushed, shoes tied, car packed
10:33 am - realize we don't have directions to where we are heading
10:40 am - Prius is on the road
11:22 am - pee break, lunch at a random Burger King in a desolate area of Denver. Jackson insisting he's eaten here before with Daddy, and demanding we sit in the booth they sat in on their previous visit (note: we have never been to this Burger King before and in all likelihood will never frequent it again)
11:23 am - change seats
11:23 am - change seats again, eat
11:40 am - back on the road
11:41 am - argument over Burger King crowns featuring "Twilight" characters. (I have no idea who is who and neither does anyone in the car)
12:05 pm - arrive at "WOW! Children's Museum" in Lafayette, Colorado. Park right in front. Score
12:08 pm - totally "WOW'd" by said museum. Awesomeness. Truly awesome.
2:20 pm - tell kids we have 5 minutes left until we leave the museum
2:42 pm - leave museum with tears and tantrum from eldest child
3:20 pm - cookies, cocoa and lattes on Pearl Street in Boulder
4:02 pm - back on the road, heading for home, thankful that there is a stew cooking in the crock pot, awaiting our return home, and "UP!" playing on the portable DVD. Long conversation between Mommy and Daddy with barely a peep from the back seat
5:15 pm - home.
5:16 pm - Wii is turned on and Lego Star Wars reigns supreme... but noticeably less fighting


Good day in Colorado. With my family.
