Hamilton Cast and Fans

We like to say this is for Halloween, but it's often like this around the house. Well, maybe not the costumes, but everyone will rattle off some Hamilton rap now and then. Our neighborhood had a little Halloween gathering at one of the parks today.

Back row: Hamilton, Eliza, and Peggy.
Front: Jefferson, Hercules Mulligan, and Burr.

Autograph signing for rabid fans.

Fan base.

Colonial dancing.

Number the Stars (Tech Week)

The show opens tomorrow! Here are some photos from Tuesday night's dress rehearsal. Notice her hair has been dyed considerably darker - she's Jewish.

Castlewood Canyon State Park

The two older boys and the grands headed out on an adventure to Franktown. Lynn's been dying to go to Franktown (about 30 miles north of us along Highway 83). Just to see what was there. Turns out not much. But we did find a fun biker bar for lunch, the Stagecoach Saloon. And just south of Franktown is Castlewood Canyon State Park. This turned out to be the day's big activity. We were on their trails for about 2.5 hours, which also turned out to be about 2.5 miles (except AJ, we think he covered at least 4 miles in the process). We topped off the day with ice cream at the Rock House in Palmer Lake. And guess what, they've got a train running around the ceiling perimeter, too! All the pics are here.

Overdrive Raceway is just down the hill from us, and the boys have been dying to go since they first spotted the huge black-n-white checked building with go-cart pictures all over. Somehow or another, a spur of the moment thing made tonight the night. A few more pics are here.
