A few weeks ago, we took a four day road trip to Colorado Springs for an extended family adventure with my in-laws. Here are the first couple of days in pictures….
Logically, let’s start with day 1 of our Griswald style family vacation (no, I’m not trying to steal that line from the Pioneer Woman…there were some aspects of this little trip that gave a definite Cousin Eddie vibe, although those pictures may not make today’s post…):
First stop: Garden of the Gods – one of the coolest places on earth
Driving through the night does weird things to your perception of time. I don’t remember what all else we did that day. Perhaps swim in the non-heated heated swimming pool? We enjoyed dinner on the patio at Amanda’s Fonda. Then we went back to the cabin and tried to get kids to sleep. Finally, around 10, I think we were successful. And Matt and I, in our delirium, stumbled into bed ourselves.
