Okay, so a few days ago, I had my wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my new apartment here in Denver with my mom, stepdad, niece Kairi and nephew Vinny. Well, it has been a lot of fun...despite kids being a real pain in the ass...especially when they're not yours. However, they're cute enough to compensate for it. Guys with girlfriends know what I'm talking about. Anyway, we've just been checking out the city when we can. Did you know that it takes AT LEAST two hours to get ready to go anywhere with two people over fifty and two people under two? Well, now you know. Friday morning, my mom & I went looking for a nice couch to complete my apartment...and we found it at Sofa Mart on Furniture Row. A nice salesman named Daniel was happy to hook us up with a luxury model that fits my style...and the picture will be coming shortly in this blog, so keep an eye out for it.
After that, we hit up Taco John's on the way back for lunch and then took a few hours to load the kids up and wake up my stepdad...and decided to walk to the Aquarium. Now, I know that it was over a mile walk from my apartment to there...but my mom said it would be fine (because she wasn't carrying a child with her). So we did it...and it got cold...especially on the way back. Anyway, as you may recall from my last visit, the Aquarium also has a nice seafood restaurant next to giant pools of fish that the kids can watch...so we ate there and had a good time. Here's some pictures...
Then we walked back...and just before getting to my apartment, they were having a German Christmas Festival right at 16th & Arapahoe, so we stopped and checked out all the nice ornaments, decorations, and bavarian foods at our discretion. It was nice...and I may have to swing by there later for a beer and a braut.
Today, we basically spent the whole day cleaning (by we, I mean my mom & I) but my couch was delivered as well...and eventually she, Kairi and I went for a walk down the 16th Street Mall for some Arby's and riding the bus. Kairi likes just about everything about "$tevie's Denver" from his bed to his couch to his food to his view to his "elligators" (elevators) to the buses. She really likes to see the view at night. Vinny thinks it's pretty cool all around too. Good times with those kids. Too bad we have to part ways again tomorrow...but they're making my apartment into a mess...so it's about time. Here are some more pictures.
Well, that'll do it for today I guess. Tomorrow we drive back to Slick City, then I begin my voyage with Filly across the country to New Orleans because I am an incredible human being. That's my story...and I'm sticking to it. Oh well, I didn't really want to work anyway...just get paid for it. Anyway, have a great day everybody!!!
