Thursday night after getting into town we sat on the patio and enjoyed a bottle of wine and some snacks.
Friday all the fun really kicked off!
The day started off with an epic breakfast at Snooze. Seriously, if there's one near you GO! Delicious. In Fort Collins, we did as the locals do... ride bikes to the cideries and breweries and partake in the drinking festivities during what would be most peoples normal work day! After spending
Saturday we slothed around the house, Allis and I did get a workout in, watched 8 Seconds (duh!), took a nap and then got ourselves all gussied up for the Lady Antebellum concert up in Cheyenne! It's a pretty quick trip from FTC to Cheyenne which we passed singing our hearts out to the radio and gabbing. We had some time to kill before the concert and decided to go check out the saloon for drinks and two-stepping! I mean when in
The concert was amazing! Lady A put on a fantastic show and it was great to hear Clay Walker again! In my opinion, nothing beats 'old country'.
Sunday Allis, Maggie and I headed back to CFD. This time to do some shopping and watch the rodeo. Each day during CFD, they lead a 'Behind the Chutes' tour of the facility. You get to hear about the history of the event, see the stock and learn about rodeo events. We went last year, but it was something that Maggie absolutely had to see. Plus we needed our second annual buckin' shoots photo!

The rodeo at Cheyenne never disappoints! It really is the Daddy of 'em All!
*Just a quick shout-out to Ree for sharing the magic of Slo-Mo videos on the iPhone!
Monday we pampered ourselves with a pedicure downtown. The plan was to enjoy some bubbly during, but we may have been over-served the night before and just weren't feeling up to it! But by lunchtime it was game on! Speaking of lunch, we also saw Jesus. It says he will come again...
And because we're awesome, before heading home we went for a hike at Horsetooth Reservoir. We hiked into the falls, played around in the water and then headed back. On the return trip, we were treated with a rattlesnake on the path!! Eek! Not cool Colorado, not cool.
But with blue skies and views like this, I can forgive one snake! Two would be pushing it though!
