Best Fireworks Display in Denver

A few months ago, I got an email from the Colorado Symphony Orchestra that they would be playing a special concert on America's birthday.

I'm always on the look out for a fun place to see the fireworks with my family  and this was perfect because we are obsessed with classical music thanks to our fantastic school music teacher.  I immediately bought tickets!

I moved to Denver 14 years ago (holy crap has it been that long?) but I have never been to Fiddler's Green.  I've been missing out!  It's a great venue with seating and a lawn area.  Lots of beer/wine/food vendors and most all of them took credit cards. 

We arrived early, but we didn't need to.  Turns out we were in line with all of the people with general admission tickets that needed a good lawn seat.  I will tell you that the best seats are in the 200 sections.  If you are in the 100 sections you have to move to see the fireworks because the stage will block them. 

We all dressed up but we didn't need to because it is an outdoor concert, but we like to dress for the theatre.  That's just how we are. We looked like we are the type of people that go to the symphony, which we are.  Ha...just the thought of me being hoity-toity is pretty funny! 

Once the sun set at around 8:30 we could see the stage much better and with a light breeze blowing it was the perfect night!  The fireworks started around 9:15 and lasted about 30 minutes.  The Symphony continued to play until the last 10 minutes so that they could step out and enjoy them too. 

If you are looking for a family friendly place for your family to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks and experience some culture at the same time, this is the place for you!

LEGO Apple Watch Docking Station

I've had my Apple Watch for about 7 weeks now and I LOVE IT!  I love being able to see so much information in a glance and I haven't gotten lost once since my watch taps me on the wrist when it's time to turn.

My watch gets lots of attention, but the most awkward demo I did was during my gynecological exam. My doctor was really interested in the watch and asked me a bunch of questions while I was in the stirrups. I laughed all the way home!

One of my favorite things to do with my watch is send my heartbeat to my husband and two friends that also have watches.

I have one question about my Apple Watch.  Why is the charging cord 15 feet long?  Seriously, can someone explain that to me?  It has become such a pain to deal with this cord that I was forced to use my imagination and create a couple of docking stations for our electronics.  I would have made one for our iPads too but my kids would only let me use some of their LEGOS.  

I like to look at my watch in the middle of the night to see what time it is, so I wanted mine to hang.  I was really glad that my daughter had some pink and purple bricks so I could make it girly.  

We've been using our docking stations for a few days now and they are working out great!  Time to get out the KRAGLE and make them permanent.
