  1. You have NO idea how happy I was to see this post!! I am planning a trip to Denver in July and would love to be able to take my kids & husband with me, but with me going to be in conferences all day, he wasn’t wanting them to have to stay in the motel room (unless there’s a pool!) all day!! I’ll have to show this to him!
