We just got back from vacation and it was by far the best trip we have ever done. The weather was beautiful, the kids were awesome and there was so much to do. So this is the first of many post talking about what we did and saw. As much to document for myself and the kids as to share with all of you.
Day 1 we headed out. Since we have a 11 month old we were doing the driving in two chunks. We left in the AM and stopped in Topeka for lunch and the zoo. This was perfect. The baby took a morning nap in the car. Then after the zoo he took his afternoon nap. We went to Hays, KS and stayed the night. This was almost exactly half way to our destination. Driving through Kansas we also saw all the windmills. VERY NICE! I want one on our farm.
The next day we headed out right after breakfast. We stopped in Limon, CO for lunch and played at a park. After that we finished driving to Colorado Springs. Here are some pictures of us at the park.
We stayed in a campground called Garden of the Gods Campground. Here is their website. HERE
It was the best campsite we have ever stayed at. We stayed in a camper cabin. It had bunk beds and a queen bed. It also had a ceiling fan, lights and electricity. The bathroom was super clean, nice showers and laundry rooms. They had a family pool, adult pool and adult hottub. On the weekends they also had BBQ dinners you could buy if you choose at the community building. Free WIFI in the clubhouse and TV with comfy couches. Our cabin also had chairs on the front porch, picnic table and fire pit. Isn't it cute?!! Another thing I loved about this campground is they had recycling, energy efficient bulbs everywhere and all their trucks and cart for the campground were 100% electric.
