Boulder Creek Festival

Last weekend brought the chance to get outside and see Boulder, CO for the first time since we arrived here in this beautiful state. We attended the Boulder Creek Festival.

Most of you know that we love to spend time outdoors with the kids and fesitvals are the perfect way to do that. Boulder is gorgeous, too, located near The Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains and it's filled with mature trees and plenty to do. The "Great Rubber Ducky Race" was held on Monday.....thousands of rubber duckies race the creek to win prizes.

The University of Colorado campus is just down the street and the adjacent district supporting the students looks like a lot of fun to check out. Much more to see in Boulder....Blake and I both left saying that "whatever they're hosting, we're there!".

The ever-fun Hollingshead family came with us after actually suggesting the event when we had planned to go into the city to see the Denver Arts Festival. Good move, Belinda!

The kids learned how to fence. Here is darling AnnMarie battling her daddy, Ryan.

Carter and Noah.

We found a central spot to sit down, have lunch and listen to music.

Belinda bet Carter and Noah a million dollars that they couldn't keep a sticker on their mouths (thus, not talking) for the rest of the day. Noah is considerably quieter than Carter, but even he was unsuccessful.
