Day 4: Golden, CO / Denver

We started this day with a shopping trip to Rockmount Ranch wear, just off 16th Mall street in LoDo (lower downtown Denver). Jessica got a great cowboy hat, a silk scarf and a neck kerchief. She spent all her money and more! I got a hat too and red plaid western shirt and Tom got a shirt and gloves. Sophia said "this is not my style" and got nothing - she ended the day as rich as she started :-). She more liked the REI flagship store on the Platte River. That was an awesome outdoor store - it would be easy to spend $10k there (we didn't though).

In Denver we went to the Capitol building and sat on the "Mile High" step - about 5200 ft above sea level. They had many lovely quilts on display and we saw where senate was held.

We had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Delicious. I had Mahi Mahi with sangria and Tom had fish tacos and a mai tai. For dessert, Jess got plain and Soph got Reeses Pieces cheesecake. We just "helped" them with their dessert. So much fun.

Later we went to Camping World and Super Target. What a full day. We were wiped out. Ended with a light dinner back at the RV - grilled cheese for the kids and salad for us.

Denver is great. The campground is awesome. I hope we get back here again and spend at least a month. ( Or two)
