Denver Deal: VivaStreets, Free Day at Museum, Taste of Colorado, and more
I will be honest with you there are some weeks when there is so much to do I get super excited trying to figure out how I can fit them all into my schedule. My daughter would prefer to sit at home in the air conditioning. This will be one of those weekends with so much to do and her “excuse” will be, “moooom, it is the last week before I go to school.” I can hear the whining now. Oh well. Lucky for her – she’s got me as a mom. I may just make sure she goes somewhere EACH day this weekend for something really great!
