Then on Thursday we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. This zoo is on the side of the Cheyenne Mountain and they have updated the zoo and if you ever are in Colorado Springs, it is worth the trip. The view of the Springs is just wonderful and the zoo is very enjoyable. Tip....take the trolley bus to the top and walk down!
Little thing I learned at the zoo....porcupines can climb trees! I had no idea. This porcupine was up in a tree just sitting there watching all the lookie-loos. This was the first porcupine I've ever seen, and he was so cute I wanted to take him home with me. On Friday afternoon after the ladies went shopping and the boys went and hit golf balls, we took the kids to the Olympic Training Center. They have been before, but Brian had not been in the past 20 years. We walked around and took a look at the pool. There were no swimmers present since they are all in Omaha NE for the Olympic Trials this week.
And on Friday night we went to our old hang out Old Chicago. (Around the World Beer tours). Well....20 years is a long time, and it just wasn't the same. Sadly it was just another chain restaurant. Still called Old Chicago and still had the beer tour....but the menu could have been from any chain restaurant. Oh well...afterwards we walked to the park where there was a band playing....they were AWFUL....so we went and got ice cream!
I want to thank my parents for a wonderful week. It was so nice to be home and smell my mom's house and sit on their back deck each night talking (even about religion...DAD!) We all had a wonderful, relaxing, fun week. Thanks Mom and Dad....I love you! xoxo
