The original date on this post was June 9, 2018. It was updated on June 15. The photos were taken by one of the participants of our little family gathering (or a kind person on site). Thanks, all, for your contributions to this post!
On Wednesday, June 6, 2018, three of the Livengoods joined us in our little rental house here in Boulder, Colorado (Rick joined us on Sunday, June 10). We’re sorry the rest of the family couldn’t come!
Our many activities fell into the following four categories, and the photos below are categorized the same way:
Games and Entertainment. We solved an Enigma puzzle and escaped from the escape room (you can Google “Enigma escape” for more information about this fun phenomenon). The Livengoods did a very difficult jigsaw puzzle. We went to a Rockies-Diamondbacks baseball game. We visited a butterfly pavilion.
Hiking and Sightseeing. We hiked locally at Boulder Creek and the Enchanted Mesa, and we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park and hiked there. We visited the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
Shopping and Eating. We dined on Pearl Street (for example, Pasta Jay’s and the West End Tavern) at the Chatauqua dining hall, and in the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. We browsed the Boulder Bookstore.
We all enjoyed visiting regional universities of possible interest to Matthew, Miranda, and their friends. Those included University of Colorado (at Boulder and at Denver) and Colorado State University.
