Gratitude {4}

This weekend, we went to Black Hawk and stayed as guest of my brother in law at the Ameristar Hotel and Casino.  My kids love this place for two reasons:

  • The 34th floor roof top indoor pool.
  • The Crab Leg Buffet

I enjoy a few things:

  • Starbucks
  • Quiet time alone while they swim
  • Crab Leg Buffet

This time we also got to watch fireworks from our room.  As you may recall, Colorado was on fire over the summer and many communities didn't have their fireworks displays.  Blackhawk rescheduled their Boom Town Fireworks for yesterday.

It was a blast!

This morning, I enjoyed a cup of Starbucks coffee, CBS Sunday Morning and quiet time.  I'm so grateful for little pockets of quiet time!


  1. How fun!

    I haven't had a moment alone since last jealous! LOL

  2. I want to be there with you in your quiet time! I'd make it not quiet though. Never mind!

  3. Sounds amazing and relaxing!!

  4. I'm thinking that I need a vacation that involves Starbucks and alone time while kids swim! :) Looks fab!

  5. That really does look enjoyable.
    Glad you guys are having a blast, you really needed a vacation... and some well-deserved me-time. =)
