Christmas 2011

Pumpkin Patch

We had an AWESOME time going to the pumpkin patch with Claire.  The one we went to was operated by the Denver Botanic Gardens and it was the perfect day for it – crisp and cool.  There were A LOT of people there but it never felt too congested.  There were food vendors, children’s activities, […]
