Family Vacation Part One

My parents, my brother, his kids, and my brother’s girlfriend came out to Colorado last week and we did some stuff.

My parents arrived first and for dinner we went to Nosh which I’ve been wanting to try. It was really good overall.

I had their special sangria, my dad had some scotch and my mom had some white wine.

We “noshed” on a blue cheese wdge type salad which was only ok. Kinda odd actually.

We also had a beet salad which I forgeot to take a picture of but which was really tasty. And we shared this shrimp and steak salad thing, also delish.

Of course we had dessert. Three TINY little things, a chocolate pudding, a cake parfait thing and a lemon cake. All were great.

The next day we went to Rico’s/Poor Richard’s for lunch. Here’s DM and my mom.

The rest of the group arrived in the afternoon and parked their motorhome right outside my house on the street. LOL. It was funny. We were going to go on the Cog Railway that day but it was rainy and late so we went to the arcade in Manitou instead. It’s a really neat old place with tons of old and new games. We all played Skee Ball.
Here is dad, mom, my nephew, then over on the other side, my brother, his girlfriend, and my other nephew. That is NOT a baby in the girlfriend’s arms, it’s an photographic optical illusion!

Here’s the girlfriend again.

After the arcade we all went up to Ted’s Montana Grill for dinner. We had to wait in the bar because it was really crowded. I forget what this drink was called- a bottle of coke and a glass of Woodford reserve whiskey. DM and my brother’s GF had this. I had a whiskey and lemonade which they gave a cute name to, as well.

Here we all are waiting at the bar. In Colorado kids are allowed in bars if they’re with an adult so we hung out in quite a few of them during the week!

Waiting for dinner.

Ooops didn’t get any shots of dinner, but here’s dessert!

More later!
