A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Yesterday was gorgeous! I took Stella on a long walk through Five Points. I know, Five Points is the scary part of Denver but when I was driving through it the other day it didn't seem so bad so we decided to explore.

The only dodgy part was when a guy came up to me and asked if he could take Stella for daily walks... I declined.

She was so excited about the pigeons, she loves chasing them around and there seemed to be a lot of them out yesterday.

I also noticed that the trees are in bloom! This one reminds me of the one in my backyard in Nebraska.

We came across a buffalo!

And had to make a few pit-stops along the way...

We probably ended up walking about a mile or so which is quite a bit for Stella. She was pooped but that was the point. I went up to Blackhawk last night with my sister, Dad, and stepmom for some gambling and steak consumption so Stella stayed with Buddy and Eulafaye. They are such a nice couple and they adore Stella so she had a blast!

I didn't win big money at Blackhawk but I had fun playing the penny slots-- I don't really understand anything else! We feasted on some  delicious steaks, mussels, and glasses of Chianti at Farraday's.

We were going to hit up the buffet the next morning but we arrived a few minutes after the paramedics. Yeah, someone died at the Calypso buffet that morning so we decided not to eat there. So sad.

To end on a positive note, the drive home to Denver was lovely.

The picture doesn't do it any justice but it's taken from inside the car. On a side note, I think my camera is broken. The right side of the image is all blurry in all of my photos. Major bummer.

Wait.. positive note! I just called my Mom's house and my little brother Eddie is such a comedian! He answered the phone with an accent and said that he owned a taco shop and he would give me some free coupons. He cracks me up! And my brother Jimmy scored the one and only touchdown at his first flag football game of the season! So proud :)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!!


  1. I still can't see any of your pictures! :( Dang it - I don't know if it's my internet connection or what, but it's frustrating! I want to see DENVER!

  2. I just noticed that on mine!! dang it! Do you use Picasa, all of the ones I upload from there just disappear! Any advice?

  3. Yay! I can see the pics now too! I was going to post the same message as Stacie. I'm so glad I can see Stella. Adorable. Lv ya!
