When my mom was here, we took the kiddos up to Denver and visited Four Mile Park.
The day was cool and clear, and we had a lovely time walking around the grounds, and spending too much in the old-fashioned gift shop. My mom wasn't sure how far she would want to walk that day, but you know, those cute little Grandchildren have a way of getting her to do just about anything. And so she walked.
It really was a quiet, beautiful day, and we all enjoyed getting out before the temperature dropped.
Another small pleasure this side of Heaven.
