Day out

Yesterday was so much fun. My friend Darby watched the girls pretty much all day long so I could get out of the house and have some "me time". My mom and I love to go to antique stores and look around. This is one of my favorite things to do. I love the 20"s Era and love the Jewelry from the 1920's, we found this shop that sells all the antique jewelry you can stand to look at. We were in that one little store for way to long having so much fun. It was a much needed break and felt so good to get out.

Ellie said I could

I layed Presley down for a nap about 20 minutes ago and have been playing catch up around the house picking up toys and toilet paper (don't ask) and then Ellie comes to me and says in her cutest little voice "mom, you have been working really hard today, go shopping on the computer and buy something pretty for you" So Ken if your reading this......Ellie said I could.

A few weekends ago we took the girls to the pumpkin patch. This is a tradition we have done every year. The girls love walking around and finding the best, the biggest, the roundest pumpkin they can find. This is one of my most favorite things to do and look forward to it every year. I love the fall and all the colors it brings and yummy treats and the family time.

Royal Gorge (part 2)

This deserves it's very own post. When we were at the Royal Gorge Maci and I went on the Tallest Sky Coaster in the World. She was to big for the Donkey ride and we felt bad so we offered to take her on the sky coaster. I totally thought she would say NOWAY, but she was so brave and did! It was pretty cool because you fly over the edge of the gorge and then there is nothing but hundreds of feet below you. We have a video but I spent all afternoon trying to get it on and gave up, so maybe another day. It was so fun and Maci is still talking about how brave she was.

Royal Gorge

Back in September we celebrated my 32 birthday by taking the family on a much needed family trip to Colorado Springs. While we were there we went to the Royal Gorge Bridge and had a great time. The weather was perfect and we loved every minute of the time together.

The is the Bridge that you walk across and on both ends of the bridge there are many things to do, the best was just to walk around and look at the amazing views of the canyons.

I love this picture, the girls were having a great time walking and talking with their daddy that they did not even know that I had fallen behind to take a picture. (so cute)

Presley went on a Donkey ride with Ellie.

Ellie loved the petting zoo and the girls wanted to take home a goat so bad.

One of the attractions there is this inclined train that takes you to the bottom of the Gorge. You get in this caged train and it takes you down this very steep straight down tracks to the river below.

Way down there you can see another caged train that is blue coming on the way up while we are going down.

You can also take the Gondola from one side of the Gorge to the other, Ellie loved looking out the Gondola over the edge to way down below, she was not scared at all.

Still in Colorado

We are still in Colorado well, the girls and I are. Ken lives here about 20% with us and then 40% in New Mexico and the other 40% in Texas. Things are hard right now and our family time with him is very limited so when he is here we take every minute with him seriously. The girls and I miss him so much and there are many times that I lock myself in the bathroom just to get a quite moment. I do feel so blessed that he is so happy with his job and we are so excited when the day comes that we sell our home and move back to Dallas.
