Earning Our Keep

Day 17, June 13, 2016: Boulder, CO

Day 17 started with a visit to Pearl Street in downtown Boulder. We did a little shopping and Gillian got a henna tattoo in one of the local shops.

We made a quick visit to the historic HoIMG_2072.JPGtel Boulderado, the oldest hotel in Boulder, and where Kenny and Kelli held their wedding reception.  It is a gorgeous building.  Inside the hotel is the License No 1 Liquor Bar – a once illegal establishment – which now has the distinction of being the bar with the first legal license to serve hard liquor in a restaurant in Boulder.

Following the tour of the hotel, Kenny and KeIMG_2073.JPGlli treated us to a delicious lunch and local brews at the Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, a fabulous local establishment.

Next on the agenda was a quick walk through of University of Colorado Boulder. It is a beautiful campus.

When we returned to the house, we decided we needed to earn our keep at the Kubalas, so David did a little yard wIMG_2077ork for them… he mowed the grass, pulled weeds, and trimmed some bushes.  I took a nap.

We ended the day with amazing homemade pesto pasta prepared by Kelli! We all ate huge portions because it was so delicious, even though all of us were still full from lunch!

The Kubalas were amazing tour guides, phone searchers, chefs, and hosts!  Once again, it is always sad to say good-bye, but we must keep on truckin’ down the road. Next stop – Topeka, KS.
