"Take me out to the the ball game"- A little weekend recap

As many of you know I am a huge baseball fan! Not for the acutal baseball, but for the atmosphere that comes along with going to the field. A hot summer day spent by the pool, followed by a quick shower, a basball hat, your favorite Rockies shirt, the smell of grass, and of course the hot dog and beer! Does it get any more summer than that?? Luckily, I have managed to find a great group of people that enjoys going to the baseball games almost as much as I do :) W and I used to live 4 blocks from the beloved Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, and if we needed something to do on a Sunday afternoon you better believe that was the first place you could find us. This weekend I feel very fortunate to have been able to go to not one baseball game but 2!! The Dodgers were in town and that is always a great series to go watch, and on Memorial Day weekend no less! Am I blowing your mind yet?? Haha. So anyway, I was able to scrounge a couple of club level seats from a co-worker of mine and Mr. Man and I headed to the ball park. Honestly, it could not have been any better. Perfect weather, perfect company, and unfortunately the Rox lost that night, but hey you can't win them all right? Saturday we opted out of the game and went to see Robin Hood and tried a delicious new(er) restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was delicious and I even enjoyed the movie! Holy cow, I'm exhausted even writing all of this stuff that I managed to cram in this weekend and I'm only till Sunday, just kidding. Sunday was, we shall say...interesting. Mr. Man was dead set on climbing a 14er and I am not one to back down so I said 'sure!' Probably should have thought that through a little bit better, but have no fear we got lost....driving! Hahahaha!! We ended up driving, not hiking, to the top of Mt. Evans. Regardless the views were breathtaking and it was a great experience! We finally got back into Denver after a 5 hours of driving around 11 AM and decided we needed to go to another ball game! It was awesome, the weather was once again beautiful, sat in the sun and then we were able to meet up with W for some drinks and bar fun!! All in all it was a great weekend. Unfortunately the Rox lost the series with the Dodgers, but there is always next time. Monday, was another beautiful day filled with BBQ's family and good old fashion fun! Loved it! Did ya'll do anything exciting for the long weekend???
Some pics of the fateful 14er attempt...oops.

  1. the view from mount evans is spectacular! bierstadt [evans's neighbor to the west] was my first 14er - it's a nice and moderate hike.

    sounds like an absolutely amazing weekend!
