Day 254

Off on a day of adventure in Cherry Creek (Denver area) for Lynn and Jamie. First some great crepes at Crepes & Crepes which specializes in, guess what, crepes. The roasted leek crepes were great. The Cherry Creek Mall was also just a block away and where we spent the rest of the morning and much of the afternoon. We went to Kona Grill for lunch where we stayed surprisingly warm in the 40-something degree air. We got to hit many favorites, including Pandora, L'Occitane, and Williams Sonoma. There was one street cutoff from traffic that had "container stores," stores set up in containers that could be locked over night. One store was The House of Stewart, a marvelous chocolates and shortbread store. They had "tablets" of candies, a block of sugar, flour, and chocolate melt-in-your-mouth goodness about the size of a 3x5 index card and maybe an inch thick. Dinner was a couple appetizers from Bad Daddy's Burgers (take out) right next door to the hotel. We watched Last Christmas tonight, quite good and with an interesting twist. Back at the ranch in the Springs, the new foster twins arrived, some flowers arrived for Lynn's birthday, a photo of cousin Megan having put together a 3000-piece puzzle, and someone comes up with a picture of Lynn, her Mom, and her sister from the very early 1970s, maybe late 60s. All the Denver pics are here.

Half a block up from the hotel. Those prisms rotate on
their bases and colored light dances in the fountain area.

That's not an ice cream stand at upper left;
it's edible cookie dough. Pass.

Happy Birthday Lynn from Nipomo!
