Sundays in the winter are typically reserved for NFL watching, and while Denver has been going through an unseasonably long Indian Summer, we decided to buck our trend of not wasting nice weather. Yep, we were couch potatoes. I usually hate wasting beautiful days and sunny weather, but we’ve been on the move quite a bit this past summer so I say we earned it.
I have a weird relationship with Sundays. On one hand they remind me of my childhood; waking up early, going to church with the fam, getting back and watching PBS (hey we didn’t have cable, okay?) while my mom made Sunday breakfast, watching my dad make coffee, having a very slow paced meal, maybe taking a nap, then all reconvening again to watch the Broncos play. So these days I love it when my Sundays come together like that; having a lazy morning sipping on some coffee while you watch the news or read the paper. It sounds so old fashioned, but I guess now that I’ve gotten older it’s something that I can appreciate. But on the other hand, I also kinda hate Sundays because they are a reminder that the weekend is over and that soon it will be time to get back to the grind. Yesterday we decided to be lazy and just relax.
Okay so maybe we got a tiny bit of cabin fever. After watching the morning and afternoon games (and stuffing our faces with game snacks) Kayla and I got a little restless. So we hopped in the car and decided to go on a drive and made our way to Barnum Park to check out the skyline and watch the sunset. Barnum is great for a view of downtown, but not so much if you want to actually see the sunset, so we decided to high tail it to Mile High Stadium before the light disappeared.
So for those that don’t know me, I work as a contractor for Sports Authority Field working with their Engineering department. I’ve been working on the stadium project for close to two years now, but I’ve never actually taken my camera there. I guess I just feel weird taking my camera when I’m a contractor, I mean Sports Authority Field is paying me to be a consultant and a designer, not someone walking around taking pictures.
Anyway, it was pretty fun shooting at the stadium, the statues and monuments make great subject.
Plus I learned a lot about Mr. Bowlen (apparently he did an Ironman?? Rad!)
We did a lap around the stadium and then headed back to the car; call it a micro-adventure I suppose.
