Vandal Baseball

Hahaha just kidding. The U of I doesnt have a baseball team. We DID however head up to Denver on Saturday to meet Luke's parents for a University of Idaho Alumni (Colorado Chapter) event at a Colorado Rockies baseball game!
Luke took a morning shift at his place of work (we're not even allowed to type the name on the internet) which meant he had to get up at 5AM!!! Fairly typical except this time I had trouble falling back asleep (normally not an issue.) So here you go Grandma G, pictures of our sunrise.
Garden of the Gods too early in the morning!
After Luke got off work we headed to Denver!
Ive never seen so many people wearing purple before in my life! It was fantastic!
I even painted my nails "A Grape Fit" for the game. Thats what I did with my time being up so early and all.
Luke wore his Germany shirt in honor of them getting 3rd place in the World  Cup!
Every stadium has it's "food to get." When we went to Grizzlies Games as kids it was always a funnel cake, at the Skysox stadium it's Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory's Caramel Milk Chocolate covered apple, and here it was kettle corn. We went on a mission and found it. Good for munching the whole game long.
The famous fountain.
Red slushie?
Rockies beat the Padres 4-2.

I am awoken betwenn 5:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. practically every morning by the pitter-pat of little feet. Whew, it is early - and I never seem to get extra zzz's!

I'll take my few minutes, or moments, of snuggles in the morning b/c once my kiddos are up we are running!

I like the peaceful, quiet morning. There is something magical and hopeful about having an entire day stretch before you.

I remember my Grandma always sitting in the dim, quiet kitchen drinking her first cup of coffee by herself in the early morning. I discovered this on my way to the bathroom and could never understand why she was up.

Gorgeous early morning pics! Thanks for thinking of me! :)

5:00 a.m. is too early for me, too.
