"I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier."


First of all let me just say thanks to Bonnie for coming with me. She really helped me out. And she even let us drive her car there. She's such a fun girl, and really is one of my best friends. We talked, we ate, we drove, we danced, we sang at the top of our lungs. Such a fun trip!

On Wednesday we hopped in the car and headed to Colorado.


It was a gorgeous drive. It didn't feel like nine hours, but that's what it ended up being. We arrived in Morrison just a bit before the concert started. The theater really is breathtaking. Those Coloradoans.. Colaradoites?.. sure are lucky to live so close to such an amazing venue.


The concert was so fun. The Killers put on an amazing show. They had fireworks and confetti bombs and crazy special effects. They sounded awesome and even had a good opening band. Bonnie and I screamed so much that our voices were ragged by the end. We danced like crazy and probably drove people crazy with all of the pictures we took.


After the concert was over there were so many people trying to leave, that we just decided to roll down the windows, enjoy the cool night air, and sing to the radio. People probably thought we were drunk, but we didn't care, we were having fun. We sang everything from Heart to Kanye. We were laughing until our stomachs hurt.


We stayed at a nice hotel with two very comfortable beds. We slept in, and then headed into the city.

We stopped at a darling shopping district, went to a yummy bakery, did some window shopping and munched on a sour cream muffin.


Then did a little antique shopping and headed back to Morrison to have lunch in their cute little town.


After lunch we headed home. We arrived around midnight. This is a picture we took on our way to Colorado..


And this is the one we took when we got home..


Can you tell we played hard? It was an awesome trip. I was lucky to have such a fun travel buddy.

Oh! My little sister saw them in Boston and said they were great. We did not make the (1 1/2 hour) drive to Red Rocks. But, isn't that an amazing place for a concert!? Your CO pictures are great. I love blue bear (we have a mini in our kitchen looking out the window). And your western slope driving photo. Thank you!
