Havent watched it yet, in large part because i wasn't a fan of boba fett. Watched the first 3 or 4 episodes, took me a bit to figure out my issue...there was no change of atmosphere. It was seroous the whole time, no comic relief, no lighthearted moments. Which is fine if you want to watch a drama i guess, but not what i like (or expect from star wars).

There are some laugh out loud moments in Obi Wan. I choose to believe they are intentional.

This is where I'd focus on finding a nice restaurant, having a nice meal and maybe enjoying a cocktail someplace quiet and pretty. Best of luck! Hope you can turn it around.

Don't know how much this will help, since I know nothing about your kids interests, but Denver does have a huge theme park/water park. There's also the Denver Zoo, Butterfly garden, Botanical Garden, Aquarium, plus all the mountains to hike through.

Thanks, but we are currently in Vail. But I think I got it under control. See my next post in the LPT

Well.SUCCESS!!!! So far.

Woke up this morning and decided to take on the where to go I dont like it here confusion, give 2 options, not get a response and then chose one. EUREKA!!! It worked, no fuss , no argument. Of course it meant I drove about 10 hours today, but it is working so far.

Drove to Glenwood Springs. There is a mountain top amusement park and cave tours. No one wanted the amusement park (HOORAY) so it was a gondola ride to the top, made Mrs Xue happy and and the exploration of 2 caves that made the youngest and Mrs Xue happy. Then, even with some minor protest, lunch. Found an Asian place that even Mrs Xue liked. Then she wanted to see Aspen存o more driving.. the youngest got to see a black bear next to a river and Mrs Xue got to see an elk both on the return trip.10 hours from the time we left安e returned. All is well. And tomorrow is already planned.多opefully it goes as well.
