Okay so I just have to make some observations about Denver because after almost three weeks of living here, I have several:
--Lots of Barack Obama fans. Lots of yard signs and bumperstickers. Today a dad at the park had an Obama t-shirt on.
--I see a lot of Ron Paul signs too.
--So many different TYPES of people...from hippies to soccer moms, they were all at the neighborhood park today.
--Very kid friendly. People in this area seem to LOVE kids. Bizarre.
--No one in Denver seems surprised by our mixed family.
--People here are EXTREMELY down to earth and friendly. I've met more random people on the street, at the park, at the store, then I ever did in Santa Maria. Really strange.
--People here LOVE the outdoors and being outside.
--And they have a lot of dogs that they walk everyday.
--It is terribly, terribly dry here.
--At the flea market (technically in Littleton) there were some seriously done-up moms...designer coats, heels, full makeup, hair done...with a baby in the bjorn...all on a Saturday morning.
--The Costcos here have way more items, and way more organic items, than our old one in California.
--The weather...well this could be a post of its own. 75 degrees one day, SNOW the next day...and every temperature here FEELS warmer than it did back in Cali, because it's so dry I guess. I love how hot it gets! No more annoying not-very-hot-but-not-very-cold weather, which perpetually drove me nuts.
Those are my observations for today. I'm sure I'll have more to share eventually!
