This is the first time the kids and I have been in Denver during the 4th of July Holiday since we moved to Colorado almost 4 years ago. David asked that we delay our annual trip to El Paso, TX until after the 4th of July Holiday. I am so glad we did!
On Saturday, July 3rd, we enjoyed a picnic dinner in City Park (between the State Capital and County Building). It rained, just a little bit but then the sun provided a magnificient view of the State Capital. A while later, Denver's Symphony Orchestra played beautiful patriotic music. Along with the music, the County building was the backdrop to a wonderful light show.
As the symphony concert came to the end, it was playing the 1812 overture (a favorite of mine), the fireworks started!!
Words really can't describe it....so here is a sampling of the pictures we took. It was a great family night for all of us.
