Two of Tanner's friends from work made the trip with us. We left after they got off work Friday night, which was much later than we were planning. I thought it might work out good because Harvey could just sleep the whole time. Uh - NOPE. He was AWFUL. He cried for probably at least half of the 11 hour drive. Oh it was painful. It was worse because I felt SO bad for the guys riding with us. No kids themselves and neither of them had been around babies much so they weren't even sort of immune. He's my own kid and I was ready to lose it. It certainly made us glad that we would be flying home for Christmas this year.
Tanner has a cousin that recently moved to Denver so we crashed at their place while the other guys stayed at one of their parent's house. This is what we had waiting for us in our room...
We got a LITTLE sleep that morning (we rolled in at 5am). I took a little jog that morning. Driving into the huge city made me actually miss Williston for the first time in my life ;) I usually always want to be in a bigger city. The length of time to get from one place to another was extra annoying at 5 in the morning. But they lived kind of outside of town and the run made me not miss Williston. It was beautiful and quiet and there weren't huge trucks driving all over the place and I saw this...

It was beautiful weather. We had great seats. We ate yummy food. Tanner had a special dad moment, being with his son at his first MLB game. Overall it was a great time. Harvey was a big hit. There was a couple in front of us that kept turning around looking at him. And during one of the breaks, Tanner and Harv and I were dancing to Bon Jovi, living on a prayer, and we got on the jumbo-tron! I've never been on one and always felt anxiety about being on there. Luckily for me, I never was exciting enough just by myself. Harvey stole the show :)

There were tons of people there. It was crazy. Harvey had a small melt down early on but after that did pretty good. He got a short little nap. We camped out on hole 4 green for awhile and watched most of the big names play through. That was cool. Then we ended up following a golfer Tanner golfed with in high school - Danny Summerhays. He was golfing with Graham McDowell and Matt Kuchar (one of Tanner's fav's). They were definitely not in the lead, so hardly anyone was around so we got up close and personal. And Matt Kuchar even gave us a signed ball of his. Way sweet!

After that I dropped Tanner off at his friend's parents house so they could get their NFL on and I went and visited some friends we made up here, who moved to Denver about a year ago, the Lawson's. Harvey was awesome and cute and fun until we went to dinner and then he had a royal meltdown. So after dinner I ended up leaving to put him to bed and he SCREAMED his head off the whole half hour drive home. Awful. And then it was a pain to get him calmed down and finally to sleep. It's our fault really - keeping him out late and not letting him get his naps, etc. I felt bad for him. But it was fun to see our friends and Tanner had a great time at the game!
