Hands up for Friday! It was a day of firsts for Mr. Murray! 🐶The beautiful blue bird skies were calling us today and thanks to the no boss life, I was able to take my man on a spur of the moment date thanks to that no boss life. I closed my laptop for a few hours in the middle of the day and we headed to Garden of the Gods for Murray's very first hike. It was a bit challenging at first but once we let him keep up with Rogue, they settled into a comfortable pace. We made it a whole two miles before he was completely pooped out. 😊️🐶
The sunshine felt so good on our faces that I said to Mike, "I want to sit outside and drink a beer with you." so we headed to the Manitou Brewing Company for some delicious veggie burgers and beer--Murray's first brewery. He's a Colorado dog now so he's got to learn to behave himself in pubs and breweries. ❤️He did wonderfully, as did, of course, Rogue.
We ended our date with a trip to our favorite frozen custard place that is finally re-open for spring and summer, the Colorado Custard Company, where I chatted with the owner, Matt, like we were old friends, even though he probably has no clue who I am. 🤣 Murray had his first pup cake there and I think he enjoyed it. 🍦
As if the day couldn't get any better, while we were enjoying the frozen custard an sunshine, my phone rang and I found out that Hazel was selected via the lottery for the charter school we wanted her in next year! This is a Waldorf School that literally ripped out the parking lot to put in a garden and has a "calming room" where they diffuse essential oils to give the kids a space to decompress. According to the email I got, "We will offer a developmentally appropriate holistic education that nurtures the body, mind and heart of every child.
Our aim is to bring forth healthy, confident, free thinking, self-directed children who are passionately engaged with their education and empowered to contribute positively to the world." LOVE.
Such a wonderful ColoRADical day. ❤️
