We spent 3 days in Colorado before we headed to New Mexico for the rest of the week. It was a great 1149.3 mile vacation!
Sorry some of the pics aren’t great. The first time I got my camera out for the trip, my lens wouldn’t work right, so stupid me started messing with it and ended up breaking the spring inside the lens. Needless to say, I fought with it the rest of the week. Booooo.
We originally planned to stay in Trinidad the first nite, but a storm pushed us to go ahead and go to Pueblo. We went to the zoo before heading to a hotel.
Then we headed to Colorado Springs to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo where we spent several hours. Definitely a must see! We visited all these places on our honeymoon and they were just as great this time!
From there we went to the North Pole. We were a little worried Landry wouldn’t like the rides, but he had the best time EVER!
As a note- we put him on this ride, not knowing that it went lightning fast! Poor kid by the end of it was mashed up against the side trying to hang on!
We stopped back in Pueblo to the “Children’s Museum” but it was an utter joke. We were literally there for 15 minutes and 13 of that was unnecessary.
Since we missed Trinidad the first day, we stopped at their Aquatic Center aka- Pool and played in the water for a while (iphone pics). Of course, Landry LOVED this probably the most! He had the biggest smile after coming off the huge slide with his daddy.
We ate dinner in Trinidad and the power went off because of a storm, so we decided to head on to Angel Fire.
These are through Raton Pass, it all burned a few weeks back.
We visited Red River and Taos there and just kinda hung around the cabin. The kids enjoyed getting to play with their new toys they picked up.
These are phone pics from Taos
We stopped at the Farmer’s Market in Eagle’s Nest and I picked up mini cantaloupes and cucumber pickles. And the other is the resident chipmunk we saw all week.
Landry is obsessed with horses. We stopped here a few times and before we left AF, I snapped some pics of him.
Overall, we had a fabulous time. Minus crabby babies in the car, I consider it a success! It sure stunk having to come back to reality!
