Good times with great friends...

This past week, Cam and I had our friends Jeff and Laura in town (as evidenced by my baking posts, I don't normally make cake and cupcakes in the same week!) and it was so great to be able to spend some time with them. Cam and I don't have many "married friends" yet, and as a couple, oftentimes it's hard to find another couple where both you and your spouse really enjoy both people's company. During college, I knew Jeff and Laura each separately before they started dating, and then Cam was friends with them before we started dating as well. So ever since Cam and I got together, it's been such a blessing to have these wonderful friends that can really relate to what we're going through since they are in the same season of their life.

During their visit, we were able to do some fun Colorado activities, as well as just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. Here are some photos from their visit, I can't wait to see them in their new place in Detroit when we go back to Michigan next month!

The night that they arrived, we went to see Death Cab for Cutie at Red Rocks Amphitheater...seeing a show here was something on Jeff's bucket list, and I'm so glad that we were able to go!
These pictures are a little dark, but the venue is so gorgeous!

Jeff & Laura
Glowy picture of Cam and I--note to self, don't wear a romper when you are going to have to use a port-a-potty...let's just say that was a less than ideal situation!
Waiting for the show to start!
Sweet Laura and I at lunch in Boulder
Jeff & Laura were also visiting another couple they're friends with who live out here in Colorado, so Sunday we all had a picnic in Wash Park in Denver--here's a shot of the boys: Cam, Pete, and Jeff
Wash Park was so nice and it's in such a cute neighborhood...there were tons of people playing volleyball which made for some great people watching!
Laura, Pete's lovely wife Anne, and Yours Truly :) It was so nice to meet Pete & Anne, especially since Cam and I don't really know many people out here yet!
That's all I've got for today kids, but check back later this week because I have more pictures from Jeff and Laura's visit...we did something else while we they were here that was just way too exciting/too many photos to fit in this post! Later alligators! :)


  1. 1. that place where the concert was looks SO AWESOME! I would even go to see Death Cab For Cutie (whom I do NOT like) just to be in the venue!!

    2. I can't wait to visit

    3. The romper thing made me laugh out loud. Like, hard... I can just picture you... not good in a nasty porta-pody

  2. SO jealous that you got to see Death Cab at Red Rocks!! I wanted to go so bad, but the boy doesn't like them very much, so it was a no go! :( Hopefully I will get to see a show there soon, because it looks amazing!

  3. I love your shorts in the first pic! Red rocks looks amazing. Glad you all had fun!

  4. Looks like a blast!!! Darling blog should we follow each other?

  6. Wow... SO beautiful!! I want to see a concert there!!


Your sweet words make my day! :)
