Hey, From Denver

So, we're here in Denver for our Acts 29 Boot Camp and assessment. We got here yesterday with our Christ Church pastor, Justin Hyde, and it's been a great time so far. Only glitch...I am now in our room for the second time with an upset stomach. Not sure what's going on with me. Right now I am missing a breakout session, but I think I will be feeling okay to go to the next main session.

Anyways, yesterday, after we checked into our hotel we ate dinner at a great little Belgian pub, the Cheeky Monk. Fabulous. We will be returning before we go home, that's for sure. Tired of feeling a little sick all day, I went back to the hotel, while the guys went to a Boot Camp mixer thing. Thankfully, a little rest and some American Idol (Go Crystal!) was all I needed, cause when the guys were done and ready to hit the town, I was ready to join them.

We asked a rickshaw driver where we could get some good dessert. He told us a few places and kindly offered to give us ride for free. Now, I am a little embarrassed to post this picture, but I must, just to give you an idea of how hilarious this was to me. 1. You can't really fit 3 comfortably on this particular rickshaw, 2. The driver was FLYING through downtown Denver and 3. I couldn't stop thinking of this:

(Hilarious scene from Arrested Development. :)

Anyways, here is said embarrassing rickshaw picture. I look so ridiculous because I threw my head back laughing so hard.Clearly, I should not be in, nor take pictures while flying in a rickshaw...poor Casey barely made it in the picture.

So far today, we've enjoyed a little extra sleep thanks to beloved black-out curtains, some Starbucks, and a couple great sessions at the boot camp. During the lunch break, my sweet Casey changed a flat tire on our rental car so that he could bring me and my upset stomach back to our room. Thankfully, I am feeling better now, so I think I'll head to the next main session.

More from Denver, later...
