Then, all week I was obsessed with the Stanley Hotel - the one from Stephen King's The Shining. I found out last week that it was in Estes Park...so like any goofy tourist, I had to check it out:
Remember the creepy hallway?
Weellllllll...we decided to keep on vacationing. Seth rebounded really quickly and Ryan came around eventually. We headed to Denver and visted the Underwater Adventure Aquarium. It was really really neat. You can tell how Ryan didn't feel too great:
But Seth LOVES fish:
We bought a silly stuffed shark for both boys and Ryan perked up. It could have been the REAL tiger we saw (yes, at an aquarium!?!?) or it could have been the 10th dose of Tylenol kicking in...but we were just happy to see him happy!
Seth LOVED this water shooter thing - push a button and water sprays out. He was soaked!
Troy found a really cool hotel: The Magnolia. We were quite nervous upon check in because it is clearly about 3 stars more than we are used to...but it is BEAUTIFUL! Our room is huge (3 full rooms plus a full kitchen) and we got a really good deal online!
Finally Ryan ate something - popcorn. Yeah, I know - not the best choice...but at least he got some calories in his system.
Tomorrow we're "riding the train" (shhhh...don't tell Ryan that it is actually just the public transportation system), heading to a Rockies game...and maybe seeing King Tut on display here. Seriously, downtown Denver is really really awesome. Too much to say about it...maybe later!
