Colorado- Day 1

The first stop was Pike's Peak. Even though Tim & I have both been there we decided to drive it again, because, I don't know, isn't that what you're supposed to do in Colorado Springs? :-) The temperature dropped from 70 degrees at the bottom to 40 degrees at the very top of the Peak, and of course I forgot to pack any jackets, so we wrapped the kids up in their blankets & made a very quick tour! A word of advice: The World Famous Doughnuts made at the top? They might be famous but they're not any good, so save your money! The fudge, on the other hand, was totally worth the splurge!

This might just be my favorite picture of Brianna from the trip. It's crazy, & it's her! She was tired of me taking her picture & did this pose, of course I kept snapping & I'm so glad I did! The 'flattened penny machine'. Sometime ago Brianna found my collection of them when I was a kid & she fell in love. Since then she has decided that she want to collect them too & has had so much fun making them on this trip.See? Absolutely delighted!

We also made the drive that night to go see Tim Hawkins, a christian comedian. It was a quite a bit out of our way, on the other side of Denver, but we're so glad we went. He was great & so funny.
