So, did you guess where we are from my last post?
I hope so. I tried to give you a pretty good hint.
Yup. We're in Colorado!
We traveled through Nebraska Friday evening and made it to Fort Morgan, CO that night. Those of you who have traveled through Nebraska know what a LONG drive that is! Unless you enjoy staring over vast nothingness for hours on end. (And yes, this is even coming from an Iowa girl.) Thankfully, we had a good audiobook to listen to that helped us survive.
Saturday morning we drove through Denver down to Colorado Springs to take in the Garden of the Gods, or as we like to call it, "God's Garden." ;)
One word - AMAZING!
This is one of the big, jutting rocks. I'm sure it had a name, but I don't remember it right now.
Chad found a big rock too!
Yes, he is above the clouds here.
How did I get this picture? Ummm... I was hang-gliding next to him...
Can you find me in this picture? 500 points if you do!
Yes, it was such a long and treacherous journey that Chad even got poked by some of the local fauna.
We don't have those pokey things in Ioway.
Cool, huh? I think God's quite the sculptor.
Don't worry. Chad saved the day and balanced it on his finger. It's now called Balanced Rock.
From there we headed up to Vail where we'll be staying for the week. It is so spectacular here! Today there was a farmer's market in downtown Vail (which we're in good walking distance to). And tonight we're taking in dinner with a cabaret. Should be entertaining!
Oh, and are you wondering if I miss these guys?
But I know they're having lots of fun with Nana and Papa B. this week, who graciously offered to stay at our house and take care of them. Thanks Nana and Papa!!! Plus, we get to see them on video chat at night, which is wonderful!
