Date night was AWESOME! The downsides being it was only one night, and Geoff was still getting over the flu.
We stayed at Magnolia Hotel in downtown Denver. We originally thought we'd explore downtown, but with Geoff's flu, and it being drunken debauchery weekend (A.K.A. St. Patty's Day Weekend), we didn't go out at night. The room was lovely...

Me, all dolled up for our date (thanks for the dress Kelly!)
I made dinner reservations at Red Square Euro Bistro, a Russian/European restaurant. We enjoyed the dumplings for an appetizer, Geoff had the spinach & goat cheese ravioli and I had bacon wrapped chicken with goat cheese risotto. For dessert, a dark chocolate terrine. The place wasn't very big, but it was so quaint. A little hard to find if you don't know where to look. So it was perfect, off the beaten path, and by the time we left, it had filled up.
The big selling point of the Magnolia Hotel... complimentary milk & cookies before bedtime. They were excellent. Slept great in the king sized bed, until 8am! Then back downstairs for breakfast. Their club level (where the food is served) is lovely. I meant to take a picture, but I forgot. It was a lot of tables, some small booths (perfect to read a book in) and a waterfall. After breakfast we went to Peet's for morning coffee, and then we ran some errands before retrieving the boys. We assume Kevin & Ali did okay with the boys since they were in good spirits on Sunday morning, as were the boys. They are going to be great parents to their little baby girl.
I have other stuff I wanted to blog about, but it will have to wait for another time. I have errands to run, and kids who want attention.
