Denver Museum of Nature and Science | The Nerd Nest 1

As a family, science and art museums are kind of our thing, so of course when my friend Jessica suggested we visit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science while we were visiting her a few weeks ago, we were all in. We even landed the visit on Jonas’s birthday.… Read the rest

One of the best parts of our recent vacation to Denver to see our friend Jessica was a visit to the Denver Art Museum. The kids love going to our local museum, so we knew they’d have a blast at the DAM. Just how much they’d love it … Read the rest

Colorado Trails by Jake at the Nerd Nest

For the first week of this year, we went to go stay with our friend Jessica in Denver. We spent most of our time hanging out with friends, but you know that I won’t miss an opportunity to take awesome landscape photos if I can help it! Megan, Jessica, the … Read the rest

Sushi!

Jess thought she was up to solid food today, so we got to go to my very favorite place in Denver: Tokyo Joe’s! They have yummy affordable sushi and super healthy rice bowls. I wish I wish there were some in Kansas City! They’re only in Denver though :(
