A Sister Visit!

Last week, Truman's sister, Carita, flew in from Texas to visit us for a long weekend!  There were lots of late night talks catching up on life and time spent hanging out around the dinner table, but we also visited a few fun areas around the city.

After church on Sunday, we had a delicious brunch at the Coral Room in Highlands Square, and checked out a few of the shops around this charming, historic area.

We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon at Cherry Creek and had gelato on the sunny cafe patio.  Spring was in bloom, even in the city.

Carita surprised Truman with a mold to make Spam Musubi, a popular snack in Hawaii that they enjoyed often during two summers they spent with students on mission trips in Hawaii.  After a stop at the Asian market down the street for ingredients, she taught him how to make Spam Musubi, so now he has to the needed supplies and skills to make it at home. 

(For those of you who are wondering, Spam Musubi is made of sushi rice, teriyaki grilled Spam, and seasonings wrapped in seaweed sheets.) 

Before Carita flew back to Austin, we had brunch at one of our favorite Denver breakfast spots, retro inspired Snooze.

We had a lot of fun having Carita in Denver and enjoyed that she had a chance to get a glimpse of our life and home here.  Thanks for coming to visit us, Carita!  We hope you come back sooner than later!

Thanks for hosting me and showing me around your new "home." I really enjoyed my time with you guys and am grateful for the long talks we all had together. I love you both!
