Summer Fun at Elitch's

Every summer we get to enjoy a day at the local amusement park provided largely by our library (the kids each earn a free ticket through the summer reading program). Having a big amusement park right in Denver is a mixed blessing. They make their season passes very affordable and several of our friends/family members have them. Thus far, we've been thankful that we don't. Our kids actually enjoy having that day each summer to look forward to and feel like it wouldn't be as special or fun if we went there all the time. It's a bit like too many french fries on a road trip . . . just when you thought you'd never NOT like the thought of french fries, it happens! I'm so thankful that our kids really "get" that. So, without further adieu (or getting on a soapbox about "too much of a good thing"), here are some of our highlights!
