I haven't done a 10 for Tuesday lately so I headed on over there to see what today's prompt was. It's the 10 best memories of 2007. I think I can come up with 10. Let's see...
During Danielle's spring break in April, she and I spent three days in a cabin up in Estes Park. We had a great time. I love the mountains and I enjoy spending time with Danielle. We did a little shopping and visited the famous Stanley Hotel (where The Shining was filmed). It was a perfect little get-away.
In the beginning of June, the whole family plus Jake's girlfriend, Hollee, traveled to California. We enjoyed being near the beach, sight-seeing, seeing family, my nephew's graduation, and even a trip to Disneyland.
I was able to attend our church's women's retreat in August. It was a great weekend because it was up in the mountains (Grand Lake) and it was time spent with God and a bunch of lovely women.
One of Jake's cross country meets was at a park next to Columbine High School. Visiting the newly dedicated Columbine memorial had a great impact on me and one I won't soon forget.
I always enjoy going to Jake's band's performances. And with booking, their show improves from the previous one. One of the best shows they've had, in my opinion, was at a local venue by the name of The Gothic. It was exciting to see them up on that stage because a lot of big names have also played there. They were one of the opening acts and they were awesome. They even caught the eye of a local promoter and are now working with her.
I'd have to say one of the best memories was Rocktober. That would be the Colorado Rockies winning so many games to get them into the wild card playoffs, sweeping the division series and the league championship series. It was an exciting time for Rockies fans, which I am, and all that lived in the Denver area.
It was bittersweet to watch Jake run his last season of cross country. He's ran all four of his high school years. It was great that his team qualified for state and to watch him run in that meet for the second year.
It's always a pleasure and thrill to take a trip over to Hawaii. So Don's and my trip in November was no exception. We had a great time and visited sites we had not seen in previous trips.
Our second night in Hawaii, we were evacuated from our hotel due to an electrical fire in the kitchen. Needless to say, it was a scary time and a memory that will stay with me forever.
And that brings us to the end of the year and another special memory is having my sister and her family come to visit and spend Christmas with us. It was so fun having my little niece and nephew here and spending time with my sister was priceless.
