We woke up verrrry early this morning to head over to Red Rocks for a special Sunrise service. Later we learned we should’ve gotten up quite a bit earlier! Hahaa. We got stuck in crazy parking traffic, and ended up standing in the way back actually behind the amphitheater. I had a hard time believing how crazy packed it was that early in the morning!
We couldn’t hear all that well, but we definitely enjoyed the music and the sunrise part of the celebration.
To give you an idea of how far away we were, this is what we could see after the mass exodus when the sermon finished. People were trying to beat the crowds because they knew the traffic was going to be insane!
Can you see that itty bitty choir — wayyy down there? They could really belt it out though! We couldn’t see anything at all during the first 3/4 of the service.
It was about a .75 mile hike back to our car (yeah, you know I measured that!) so we got an extra mini workout in!
Kevin whipped up some omelets for our breakfast when we made it home around 8:30. And then, let’s be honest, we took a long nap!!
Sadly, I couldn’t wear my Easter outfit to the service (freezing… rough terrain), but you better believe I put it on ASAP when we got home. It’s the Afternoon Sunshine Lace dress from Ruche. It’s totally comfy, and I loved it for Easter!
I forced the boys into doing an Easter photo shoot with me while dinner was in the oven. Kevin’s so nice putting up with this annoying little habit of mine!
Collaborating with Boyd took a little extra bribery, but we got him in there. Blurry and all. That dog can’t still!! For such a lazy dog, you’d think he would be able to!
I’ll tell you about some of other fun weekend stuff later!! I have to go soak up my last minutes of the weekend with Kevin. I’m leaving for the DR on Wednesday so I’m trying to bank some quality time!!
Have you ever gone to a sunrise service? Or Red Rocks? It was my first for both! I’ve been wanting to workout at Red Rocks, but I’m afraid of RATTLESNAKES. I shamelessly Googled it the other day and read about lots of encounters with snakes there.
Did you get a new Easter outfit? I hope you at least wore something in pastels. Haha. Sadly, I never got any bunny ears for Boyd.
