BC: When we were getting ready to leave it was snowing. We went to Uncle Ty & Aunt Alicia's house for awhile and Tate got to play in Uncle Ty's music studio. He still wants to be a drummer! Insert text here
FC: Colorado Springs Spring Break '09 .Made by You.
1: Thank you to grandma for riding with us and entertaining Tate on the trip. Thank you to Uncle Tyler and Aunt Alicia for hosting us and planning exciting things for us to experience. We love you!
2: Our trip started off with a stop in Hays for lunch. The poor waitress at Guiterrez was new and really botched up our order. It took almost 45 minutes to get our food, which set us back an hour on our trip. After eating we stopped at a car wash to throw away some trash and Troy found a possible murder weapon in the trash can. Still fairly content, we continued on our journey to stop #2 - Colby, KS a.k.a. "The Oasis on the Plains" for some ice cream.
3: Tate's first long trip! Cloudy weather = perfect lighting for watching movies - "Kung Fu Panda," "Milo & Otis," & Tate's new favorite . . . "The Sandlot." He thought it was pretty cool to have his own "computer" to watch movies on. Unfortunately, he learned a few choice words that will need future editing.
6: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo We had so much fun visiting the animals at the zoo. Tate played in The Big Backyard, fed giraffes, climbed on the rocks, rode the train & carousel, & even helped some endangered species. His favorite part was chasing the chickens in the kiddie area.
8: Cave of the Winds
9: Tate loved the tour through the cave. While looking at the walls he said, "Is that poop?"
10: Look how dirty I got! | Crawling through the cave
12: Garden of the Gods
14: Uncle Ty & Aunt Alicia
17: Tate's favorite part of the trip was climbing the rocks! | He even showed off for some college girls - look how strong he is!
19: Manitou Springs | Tate pretended to ride the rides - and got a space gun which kept him entertained for hours.
