Field Trip

Last Friday I took the afternoon off and Brian, Sadie and I went to the Denver Bronco's football stadium, Invesco Field, for a tour. I purchased a Groupon for this tour way back in October and give it to Brian as a Christmas gift. Of course we waited until the day before it expired to redeem it....

This was a really fun activity for us, and especially cool for Brian, who is (and always has been) an unwavering and enthusiastic Broncos fan.

We toured some luxury suites, the press rooms, the Bronco's party room, and the visiting team's locker room (the Broncos don't allow the public into their locker room.)

But the coolest part of the tour came towards the end when we got to walk right out to the edge of the field. It really was fun to be right there where the players are. Having been to several games at Invesco, it was so fun to see it from this vantage point. Sadie was dying to run on the grass, but unfortunately that's not allowed.

It was really fun to do this as a family. And we bribed Sadie to hang in there for the whole tour by promising her pizza afterward!

That is a great idea! My sister did that years ago when my nephew was a baby and they put him in one of the players helmet area and took pictures. It was so cute. My boys would love that!

I just saw a story about the "Happiness Project" on tv the other. Such a great idea! I need to add that link to my site as a reminder to work on happiness daily!
