Now don’t take that the wrong way….they are just 2 statues on the corner of one of the main streets in Fort Collins.  I love their expressions and they just make me smile.

 

I spent the day in Fort Collins with my Mom today.  She has never been there so I decided that we would take the day and paddle around the down town area.  It is a bit like Pearl Street in Boulder but I happen to like it a bit more than Pearl Street.  Funky little stores, great people and tons of breweries (I love micro brews!).

 

Our first stop was the rock shop….Mom loves rocks!  That took almost an hour mainly because I had to touch just about every rock in the place and I absolutely love their granite plate ware room.  The dishes come in different colors of granite and it amazes me.  The jewelry there is also fabulous and the selection of crystals is huge.  After the rock shop we paddled around the rest of the square loving the old buildings, looking at quaint, one of a kind shops and talking.  It’s nice to know that I can still spend time with my Mom when so many of my friends don’t have their parents anymore~I am feeling very blessed to have had a day like this with my Mom.

 

We finally decided that we were hungry so we headed over to the Fort Collins Brewery and ate all things NOT Paleo.  The food was outstanding and well worth the belly ache I have right now.

 

Tomorrow I’m back to eating right because this is not comfortable.
