Every year my family and I make the pilgrimdge to Elitch gardens theme and water park.
It is the highlight of my kids’ summer. It is an amusement park and a water park all combined. There is a giant roller coaster there that my kids love to frequent. Located in the heart of Denver, it is quite a drive for us to get there once a year. I wish that the kids would pick a local area to frequent. We took them to Colorado one time, showed them the amusement park, and now we go every year. My husband and I booked a hotel in Denver for a week. We do the park for a few days and then explore the city on the others. There are other kid friendly things to do there. They have a Pixar themed putt putt course. There is horseback riding, bike trails and parks to have picnics as well. It is a good family friendly trip. For the adults there are plenty of bars and shopping. Also, recreational cannabis use is there as well. I am always dying to get my hands on some edibles. It makes the amusement park day not as bad when I can be a little high for it. My husband and I don’t want the kids to know we are on marijuana though. I typically send my husband out early to find our cannabis when the kids are having breakfast. We then do right when we arrive at the park. We will be there all day, so the weed has plenty of time to get out of our systems.
