Last weekend, we went to see Kenny Chesney at Red Rocks. It rained the entire time. I was hoping for some serious country music people watching, but everyone was wearing ponchos and raincoats. Well, except for a few die-hards in cutoffs and tight tank tops. Caitrin made a clutch out of two trash bags to carry her phone in. Her phone is now not working. Note: do not rely on clutches made of trash bags to keep your phone dry in the pouring rain at an outdoor concert. But she did manage to get this picture:
Sweet, huh? The next day we drove around in the mountains and saw a marmot. It was super windy and cold. Caitrin's daughter, Macie, would have been just as happy to stay in the car the whole time! She was a good sport, though, and smiled for the pictures.
Like mother, like daughter... world's skinniest legs.
On Saturday, Macie had an Irish dance competition. She had a gorgeous new dress to wear. You would not believe all of the accessories and details that go in to getting ready. The hair was a huge undertaking, to say the least. But doesn't she look great?
Here she is, glueing her socks on like a good Irish dancer:
Seriously! What a heartbreaker. And it seems like she was just a teeny little baby sitting inside a pumpkin last week. How is she nine years old?!
Thanks to Caitrin's parents, we had this nice SportBrella to sit under:
Caitrin's aunt and I had a good time picking out the most hideous dresses. This one was a front-runner:
Macie in action! She was so great! She even got first place in one of her dances.
It started to rain just as the competition ended, so we scurried off for Mexican food and margaritas.
I have determined that I do not see my friends often enough. So you can all expect visits soon! xo
