trip: day 2

We left the Bacon's early the next morning. Breakfast consisted of breakfast burritos that Uncle Dennis so kindly made for us, coffee that Uncle Dennis so kindly made for us, and Fluffy Fresh donuts. When Mother was pregnant with me, she craved Fluffy Fresh donuts. Now I understand why...they are divine.

The Little Ones slept across Kansas.

We finally arrived in Colorado Springs around 4, if I remember correctly. We went to the hotel to meet up with the rest of our family and change for dinner.

Dinner was delightful. We ate the Flying W Ranch, a ranch with a reputation for fabulous Cowboy food and fabulous Cowboy music.

Besides the dinner-and-music show, the ranch has all sorts of Western-style shops and...stuff. It's like a little town.

After a wee hike, you can sit on these red rocks and get a great view of the Flying W and Colorado Springs.

Twas a bit windy...

Teepee for the children (and adults) to play in...

LtoR: cousin Joseph, Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Dan, cousin Elizabeth

The food was great. The music was even better.

Here ends my account of June 10, 20ll.
