I decided to start the year off right and to make sure that I was having fun. Even though I don't know how to play lacrosse I love watching Denver's indoor team, The Mammoth.
If it seems like we are far away from the action it's because we are. Nosebleed seats for $5.00. You can't beat that.
I finally got to go snowshoeing. This is why I love Denver. You can leave Denver and there is no snow on the ground and then be in the mountains snowshoeing an hour later. But let me just say that I am out of shape.
The National Western Stock Show
Last year I went to the National Western Stock Show and it was a lot of fun. They have all these cows on displayed. It is a little weird because they brush them to make them look really fluffy. I am not really sure why.
You can't go to something like the stock show without having funnel cake. I think it might be a law.
Others wanted a big turkey leg. I have issues with eating meat on the bone so I totally passed.
To make things even better they had corn on the cob. When I went to buy one they gave me two for the prize of one. I like to think it's because of my amazing looks and my sparkling personality but who knows.
We mainly went to the stock show because we wanted to see the rodeo. The bull riding was intense. No rider stayed on for the 8 seconds. This picture sums it up.
When I first moved to Denver I heard that there were places were you could go tubing at the ski resorts and they drag you back up the hill. Since then I have wanted to do this. So on Groundhog's Day I decided to make my dream come through. It was awesome. All the fun of tubing with none of the work. I did feel really lazy getting dragged up the hill but it was so fun.
Tubing really makes you feel like a little kid. I wish I had pictures of everyone's smile as they approached the turn. People had that look of scared excitement.
