Starring Denver as Himself
As many of you know, Denver was the first grandchild for my parents and Austin's parents. None of our close friends from high school, college, work, or church had kids yet either. We felt like pioneers, and that could be pretty hard. Most people didn't understand our weird new schedule that revolved around nap times and bed time, or the new ways we needed to spend/save money, or the fact that we drink Bud Light lime in all seasons (still trying to find a way to pin that on Denver).
But there is one distinct advantage to being the "first" of your friends to have children. If they don't have any kids, then they're probably pretty excited to babysit your kid...FOR FREE... and they like it!
Seriously, we have been so blessed by family and friends that ask us for opportunities to babysit Denver. We feel incredibly fortunate, and love all our friends so much.
Last Friday night, one friend went a little above and beyond. As we were Rockin' the Suburbs with Ben Folds at a concert downtown, our friend Ricky watched Denver and made the following three movies. In fact, when we got home at 11:00pm (latest we've ever stayed out? maybe), he had completed all three of these movies and had us sit down to watch them. Did I mention this is the same friend who brought his own muppet to Denver's 1st birthday party? It all makes sense now, doesn't it.
