This past weekend was the first weekend of our spending freeze. It’s easy for us to realize that the weekends are going to be the trickiest part of this for us. During the week it’s rare if we go out so that’s not an issue.
I did a little research to see what was going on in the area and I learned that every weekend of every month there are free days at different places in and around the city. So we took advantage!
On Saturday we headed to the Denver Art Museum, free day sponsored by Target, where there were lots of great exhibits. Here are a few of our favorites that we saw:
On Sunday we decided to take a half day trip up to Boulder, which was amazing. We explored the Flat Irons a bit, drove up the mountain and got excited for my foot to heal so we can start hiking again.
It was free day at the Boulder History Museum so we headed there for a bit. I’m a sucker for history museums so I was in my glory. And they had a great exhibit on Girl Scouts since this past year was their 100th anniversary. Al enjoyed the history of the buffalo that used to be in Colorado. They’ve all been killed off now. Amazing how our interests differ.
We had a great weekend though and it was fun finding things to do that didn’t cost money. And I’m actually pretty psyched to find out that there’s different things throughout the city each month that are free. It’s a great way for us to explore our new city!
