Anniversary Date for Cheep

Happy anniversary to us!

We celebrated our anniversary by going on a little getaway to Denver. We went to the Denver art museum, window-shopped at the 17th Street outdoor mall, had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, and stayed the night at the Hilton. 

It was so fun (and relatively cheep). Here is how we did it:

Babysitting: Free- the kids got to stay with Grandma and Grandpa

Denver art Museum: Free- The museum offers free admission on the first Saturday of every month. We were so happy that we planned ours then!

Our free tickets

GIANT dust pan outside the museum (random - I know)

Window Shopping- $3.50- It was supposed to be free, but I found something cute for my baby.

Cheesecake Factory: $28.79- This was not very cheep, but was worth every cent! We had great food and then had their delicious banana cream cheesecake for dessert (with a coupon of course-handed out by the restaurant)
Hilton: Free- Used Hilton points*

Breakfast: Free- We stayed at the Hilton where a hot breakfast is included (one of the reasons we like them so much! They even upgraded our breakfast to the buffet!)

Total: $32.29! 

Not too bad for an overnight stay!

*If you don't already have Hilton rewards you can sign up for their credit card and receive an automatic 20,000 points (2 nights stay in some hotels!). Just always be careful!
