A Spontaneous 5th Year Anniversary!

This past weekend I decided that we needed to do something special for our 5th year anniversary. So...last Friday morning I called the box office of Coors stadium in Denver, Colorado to see if there were any available tickets left for one of the last Rockies baseball game. Surprisingly the man on the phone said "yes" and within one hour I made all the arrangements for ourselves and our dogs. After this was done, I called Tim at his office and told him to come home and by noon we were on our way. Tim of course was so excited because he has never been to a professional baseball game and the Rockies are his fave.
On Saturday we had the whole day to kill in good ole' Denver. I was really excited to visit the Museum of Nature & Science and knowing Tim I knew he would be on board too. We asked this kind gentlemen at the Library how to get there and he explained the directions and then proceeded to tell us that it was within a mile's walk. So...we began to walk and about an hour and half later we were still walking (come to find out it was about 5 miles). However, the museum was awesome. They had outerspace exhibit that Tim thoroughly enjoyed and they also had numerous exhibits on mountainess animals. After our long journey to the museum we opted to take the bus back for $3 (worth every dollar).
After eating an early dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, we arrived VERY early at Coors Field. It was really cute to see Tim's face light up upon entering the stadium. He was like a kid in a candy story and you could tell he was in awe. We then proceeded to take our seats up in the THIRD messanine (that's all that was available).

The game was so much fun. I wish we had a professional baseball team in Utah, because we would have season tickets. The Rockies crushed the Arizona Diamondbacks 11 to 1 and two days later went onto win a spot in the playoffs. If the Rockies make it to the world series, Tim and I are seriously contemplating returning to see them in action once again. The game was fun and all, but being with Tim made it perfect. These past 5 years have been awesome. Everyday he amazes me and everyday I find myself falling in love with him more and more. I love you babe! Thanks for being such an radical dude!

Kirst-
First off, CONGRATS on your 5th anniversary. That is so great. Oh, and about the baseball gamee,
At least you got to go see a "credible" team play. While we were in KC, we had to go to Royals games. We went to the only game that they won. PATHETIC!

Kirst what a cute story!!! We miss you two - and we are also baseball fanatics - - the other day we drove by the Phillies stadium while they were playing a playoffs game (against the Rockies!) and I made pull in to see if we could get in....no dice. Sold out...But baseball games are my all-time fave. Come visit us and we'll go to a Phillies, or a Yankees game!!
