Our Adventure!

We decided to enjoy our unseasonably warm weather and headed to the Colorado Springs area for some sight-seeing! We started out with a picnic and short hike through The Garden of the Gods.



We stayed overnight in a hotel ~ or "telescope" as Kaitlin called it ... (huh?!?)
We took advantage of their indoor pool and jacuzzi ~ (Zoey's first dunk in the pool and the highlight of the trip for Kaitlin!)




Finally, we headed to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to feed giraffes, watch animals, and ride a century old carousel.


Here's a quick video of Kaitlin feeding the giraffe!

We really had a fun time!
I hate how life gets busy and we forget to take time to do fun things like this. After seeing how much the girls enjoyed our "adventure", I think it is important for us to do fun family things like this more often!

What a great little trip. The question is....what kind of equipment did you have to take to make it through a few days away from home? Good training for the trip this summer.
