For the 2nd year in a row we hit up Elitch Gardens in downtown Denver for a labor day extravaganza. Ok, maybe not "extravaganza" but a whole lotta fun! It wasn't crowded, it wasn't hot, there was hardly any time spent in lines, no one fought or argued, everyone got to ride whatever they wanted (and let me say, Jackson is a complete dare-devil!), and eat what they wanted. At one point I turned to Shawn and proclaimed: "This is better than Christmas!" And you know, it was.
