Denver Days

The first stop of our great Colorado adventure was Denver. We enjoyed a few days with electricity and running water at a Holiday Inn before we start camping today. Colter a.k.a. Fishboy loves the pool! He likes for John and I to throw him back and forth in his float to make BIG splashes.

Yesterday we visited the Denver Zoo. It's an awesome zoo! The animals have lots of room in their enclosures and the way this zoo is set up, visitors can see the animals in their outdoor and indoor homes, so there aren't as many no shows as there are in other zoos. There are a ton of animals as well (multiple tons actually--those elephants are pretty big). Colter's favorite exhibit was probably the seals, but he didn't understand why he couldn't jump in with them. He really wanted to go "imming."

John and Colter were able to make friends with this elephant. It was quite friendly.

After we rested up from our three hours in the zoo, we went to the the Cherry Creek Shopping Center which was the biggest mall I've ever seen. Being a small town girl, I saw all kinds of stores that I'd only heard about on TV. If I didn't have a two-year-old in tow, I could imagine a huge shopping spree. After Colter's fifth trip up and down an escalator, we went back to the hotel for more swimming!

Awe - what fun!!! That's hillarious that Colter wanted to swim with the seals, I bed the water would be stinky and poopy though so it's probably a good thing you didn't let him!!
