Parents Weekend

This past weekend my parents came out for a visit. We didn't do a whole lot but it was still nice.

Saturday we got up to meet them for breakfast (they stayed Friday night in Colorado Springs).  Then headed back to the apartment to drop Jeff off, since he had to go to work.
My parents and I the proceeded to go to a wine tasting at a winery close to us.  It is the Balistreri Vineyards.  Most of their wines are made from Colorado grapes with some from California.  They were pretty decent wines but the best part was the owners, they were very nice and informative about everything.  They also have their wines available at Il Posto, our favorite restaurant. 
After that we drove to Lookout Mountain but it was very windy and cold so we didn't stay long.

To the West

To the East
We had lunch in Morrison and then stopped by the VC to see Jeffy.
That night we had sushi and Blue Fin a place very close by and has really good sushi.

Sunday we woke up at a decent time to go to Rocky Mountain National Park.  We stopped in Boulder for breakfast at The Buffs Restaurant, it was really good. We then drove around the park.  It was also very cold and windy there. 

Then we came back and had lunch at the Berkshire while watching football.
Came home and made some side dishes for dinner with the Howarths.

Monday Jeff and the parents went to Snooze for breakfast while I was at work.  And then they went back to Kansas City.

It was good having them for a few days.  My mom will be back in April for Taylor Swift!
