We recently attended another Drums Along the Rockies competition/performance. It is one of the most dynamic musically performed and choreographed events that one can see, and being held in the Mile High Stadium, there’s plenty of room for more people to come and attend this energy-rich and inspiring event.

During summer, we often keep the doors to The Vivere Design Team open. On this day, a female broadtailed hummingbird flew in and couldn't find its way back out. While it was resting, we took a few photos before helping it back outside.
