So our adventure began when Philip was called to work out of town once again. We decided to pack our bags, take the kids, and travel as a family. We were headed off to Colorado! Honestly, we were a little hesitant driving for 14 plus hours with two little kids in the back, call us crazy, but decided to just go for it. Hey, you only live once, right? Plus, I was excited to get away from Orange County for awhile and experience something different. Two days later, after hours of driving and one stop in New Mexico, we had arrived in Pueblo, Colorado. Avery and Callum adjusted pretty well to the hotel life. They just needed to get a daily routine going and they were set. Hey, I was just happy I didn't have to clean for 3 weeks. We had our daily outtings that included shopping in Colorado Springs, parks, and our trips up to see Aunt Jeanette in Denver. Avery was ecstatic to see her Aunt! While up in Denver there was a huge, beautiful garden park that Avery got to run around and explore. Denver had quite a bit to offer! One of the days, Philip had gotten off work early and we decided to head over to the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City. While there, we got to walk across the world's highest suspension bridge and see the world's longest single span aerial tram. I must say, the view was absolutely breathtaking, but a little terrifying at the same time. Avery had a great time riding the carousel and there was a petting zoo where she got to pet ponies and baby goats. This was right down her alley. It was the perfect place to spend the day with two little ones. I must say, Colorado also has some interesting weather. From crazy thunder and lightening storms, to beautiful rainbows that light the sky....pretty incredible! Finally, after 3 long weeks of adventures, it was time to pack up the car and head home. Colorado was a success!
