Birthday & Independence Day Pics!

I’m sorry I didn’t get around to posting these before!  I had an amazing 3-day weekend, which started off early on Thursday with my 27th birthday!

Bethany managed to keep my birthday surprise up to the last minute, and revealed that she got us a couples massage at a spa. I never received a professional massage before, and it was truly an amazing experience.  We were both worries that nerves would get the better of me, but I managed to relax and get the most out of the massage.

Afterwards we met up with my family and had martinis at Eliot’s in downtown Fort Collins, then walked over to meet up with Bethany’s family at the Melting Pot for Cheese & Dessert. We had a blast at both places, I had an amazing birthday!

Here are pictures to share – you can also view them at your own pace.

On Friday our families went down to enjoy the 4th at the Rockies Game.  We gathered materials for tailgating/picnic beforehand at a park, then walked over to the stadium to watch a shoot-out between the Rockies and Marlines – with the Rockies winning!  The night was completed with some amazing fireworks!
