Downtown Trolley Ride

Our advent calendar activity for December 19 was to ride the Downtown Holiday Trolley.  While we waited for the trolley, we went inside the Capital building to see the big Christmas tree.  As we approached the tree, the attendant asked the kids if they would like to hang a ornament on the state tree!  Pretty cool.

Here's the trolley -- nice and warm inside.  It drove us down State Street (similar to Pearl Street in Boulder)  We enjoyed the free candy canes and ride.  We got off to eat at Taco Bell (a family fav and very affordable!).
After dinner we walked up State Street in the snow -- there is something I just love about being downtown during Christmas time.  We stopped to warm up in the Overture Center.  Downstairs there is a stage that is used for kids shows and events that we've attended.  The kids put on a little "show" for us.Posted by Picasa
