On Colorado Free Day we were invited by my friend, Kirsten, to go to Cherry Creek Lake. We had never heard of it. Turns out, it was exactly the kind of swimming spot we've been looking for these last four years or so.
It's a man made lake with a huge sandy beach and a swimming area that stays fairly shallow all the way out. There's even a changing room and bathrooms that are modern and clean. We had a great time together. Kirsten and I got to swap foster parenting stories and information. The kids just enjoyed getting to spend the day together. The weather was absolutely perfect. What a great day.
