Preping for Halloween

In the spirit of the season, we decided to carve the pumpkins we got last weekend at the pumpkin patch in Pueblo. What do you think?

Pueblo, CO. A surprisingly great town.

This weekend we took a trip down to Pueblo, CO. Which is a smaller town about 45 minutes south of Colorado Springs. We found out that they had a pretty cool corn maze, and naturally we had to stop in at the Pueblo Zoo while we were there. We also had our first Golden Corral experience, and it was fantastic. Endless amounts of delicious food, great service, a chocolate fountain, and cotton candy to-go. 

                                                    Lynx or Bobcat?

 This animal could have been at the kissing game board at our wedding, anybody know what it is?

 I discovered two things things weekend:
a) Allison has a special bond with squirrel monkeys
b) Corn mazes are actually kind of hard if you don't cheat. Especially in 87 degree heat.

 We decided to make the most of our gas money down, and stay the night at Pueblo Reservoir State Park. Aside from the guy next to us running his loud generator for a good portion of the night, and the guys on the other side of us playing loud rap music until about 3:00am, it was a very enjoyable time. We decided to get up early and go for a walk, which was definitely a highlight. Some of the best skipping rocks I've ever seen, and some pretty good views too.

 This is what makes Colorado "lakes." Otherwise known as Reservoirs.
That's all for now folks! Future adventures to follow : )

a ski lift in the summer, a fancy car, and a shrine.

Hey Everybody,

We have been getting behind on our blogging, so here you go!

There are some really cool "Cave Dwellings" up the mountain a little ways from us that we had a coupon for, so naturally we had to go. We learned a lot about native culture : )

A few weekends ago the boss at work wanted me to take home one of my loaner vehicles, a nice 2012 535xi with all the bells and whistles. Naturally I didn't complain, and we put a few miles on it : )

 There is a cool ski lift at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo which we have never ridden before, and of course there is a first time for everything. Beautiful scenery and a nice relaxing ride up the mountain.

We also drove our nice vehicle up the mountain a ways to the Will Rogers Shrine. Mr. Penrose, the same guy who built the Broadmoor and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, also built this shrine in honor of Will Rogers after his fatal plane crash in Alaska.

Lots of great adventures, but there is more to come! Stay tuned : )

Day Trip to Denver

Hi everyone!

This past weekend we took a day trip to Denver and went to the Denver Botanical Gardens, visited Denver's down town, and Allison had her first Krispy Kreme experience! It was a fun day! Here are some pictures....
