Having your personal travel guides each day of our trip was pretty amazing – were lucky they didn’t give up on our tired kids and cranky adults…or is that tired adults and cranky kids? Either way, day two was spent running around Colorado Springs which is pretty awesome too.
We took the kids and walked/drove a bit around Garden of the Gods – which was gorgeous. An attempt to take a family picture with everyone looking in the same general direction with a relatively normal smile resulted in about two dozen ‘almost good’ pictures. Here’s the best of the bunch:
(At least the scenery is nice!). The kids had fun, and attempted to ‘sled’ in any little patch of snow we ran across (indicating the success experienced the first snow day!).
It was also our last day with Hannah, which for Selah was so bittersweet. She’s been looking forward to that trip for months – not caring much about snow or Colorado – but pining to see her favorite friend. Luckily they slipped in a sweet little ‘date’ with Magic Town (a sort of ‘seek & find’ art gallery/museum-ish place) and some Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory dessert.
Just like every day there, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day or people to spend it with. I’ll sound like a broken record, but we’re so thankful and don’t take a single blessing for granted.
