Denver, CO – 4th of July

It was such a blessing to visit an old college friend (and meet her husband!) in Denver last weekend for the 4th of July. It is amazing how times flies and years pass so fast!


They took us to a beautiful new housing development, Solterra, located between Denver and the majestic mountains. It was a wonderful blend of Tuscan, French, and Spanish inspired homes with beautiful stonework, landscaping, and views. Her husband is the head developer for this community and it was neat to see his ideas come together in such a beautiful way.

Here is a picture of the community center at Solterra where we had a memorable evening of fireworks and fellowship.


We also saw Blues Traveler live at Red Rocks Amphitheater – what an amazing venue! The rain started pouring during the song, “Mountains Win Again” – making for a drenched but exciting and crazy time. That’s a concert I’ll never forget!

Here is a video when the rain starting pouring down:

See the guy in the orange jacket? That’s Nick! And we’re all standing on the other side of him. :)
