We have finally found a moment to post about our trip to beautiful Colorado! We left early Saturday and arrived that evening to stay 2 nights at the Hilton for $50 (thank you very much Priceline negotiator!). We spent Sunday in Manitou Springs. We toured the Cliff Dwellings of the Pueblo Indians, strolled through downtown, drank cups of natural mineral water from fountains (some were better than others...), hiked the Garden of Gods, and had "KC style" BBQ, which was actually pretty good! Monday we checked out of the hotel and headed to set up camp for the next two nights on the side of Cheyenne Mountain... in the middle of bear country. The camp site we actually picked out online was perfect! After we pitched the tent, we left for the afternoon. We had lunch in Old Colorado City at a french bistro and then headed to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo- the only mountain zoo in the USA- where we fed giraffes and Jason made friends with the chipmunks. We had a peaceful night by the campfire roasting hotdogs & s'mores and reading Twilight. Tuesday morning we made pancakes and eggs- well I did while Jason discussed his new job with Adidas! YEAH! We then headed off to hike Red Rock Canyon and take the Cog-rail to the top of Pikes Peak for some amazing views, donuts, and hot cocoa! Wednesday morning we made one last campfire breakfast and then packed up camp. We headed to Canon City to visit the Royal Gorge! There we walked the worlds highest suspension bridge, rode the worlds steepest incline railway, and rode in the worlds longest cable tram... all followed by a delicious funnel cake! After leaving, we decided to drive home- all the way. We drove from 6:30pm to 4:30am. We had a wonderful time and are considering making it an annual spring trip- if anything just to get an amazing tan!

A blog of our own...

After much contemplation, I have decided it is time for Jason and I to create a blog of our own. With our crazy busy schedules and ever changing lives, we need some way to keep everyone around us up to date! With that said, it is now time for my afternoon nap to prepare for another long shift.....

Another post is soon to come!
