I love when talks and dreams become a reality, even better when they turn out more special than you had originally planned. This family trip was just that. We have been discussing some quality family time for awhile now and thanks to some group effort and extremely wordy emails we were able to enjoy an adventurous and relaxing family “staycation.”
We had originally planned to head to San Francisco for our family trip but it was just not in the cards. We decided to stay in Colorado and see sites and landmarks most of us had never been to. Or at least couldn’t remember going to.
We started in Colorado Springs at Cave of The Winds. This guy was so well behaved. There were some other little boys in a tour group and they were just awful. Everyone was extremely proud of how well Liam listened and followed the rules. Sean’s face. Lunch at Amanda Fonda’s in Old Colorado City. He loves Salsa as you can see the little remains. Not going to lie, had a margarita at lunch. I’m a cheap date these days hence the popped out leg. Not really sure why but being slightly buzzed it just felt right. This might have been one of Liam’s most favorite experiences of his little life! Gross. Even more gross. No kissing for awhile. He was just all smiles the whole time feeding the giraffes. My little monkey. Saggy Baggy Elephant Gosh he has Ryan’s chin exactly. I love it. Loved the wallaby exhibit where they are just free to roam around you! Such a neat hands on Zoo. Baby Wallaby
Oh MY! Ok please ignore the fact that Liam’s shirt/shirts are becoming belly shirts. The kid is growing like crazy. I’m usually so on top of his clothes but trying to hold out till fall! The lady who took this cut mike out accidentally. But still had to share. Being around them you can’t help but laugh. At the end of the day my allergies came on so abruptly I could not control the sneezing and sniffles. We were waiting for Mike, Sean and Erin to come out of the Ape exhibit. Ryan said he didn’t want to see the gorillas because all they do is sit there and flip you off. We about died when they came out with the picture below.
