We've been visiting my mom and step dad in Colorado since Thursday morning. I love it up here. Its so gorgeous everywhere you go. We hit the base commissary and BX on Black Friday, so I got plenty of walking in that day, and yesterday we took the kids to the Air Force Academy, and went to the chapel. After 10 years of coming here and 5 being married to an Airman, we were FINALLY there at a time when we were able to go inside the chapel. It is breathtaking. We also walked around the grounds a bit, and we walked through the visitor center and got information for my daughter on admission requirements. She's a freshman this year so its the perfect time to start making sure we cover all the bases for admission.

Today we are driving up to the top of Pike's Peak, and then going to Cripple Creek to take the kids to see gold mines and about the history of the area. Should be a fun day. Tomorrow we head home.

    Glad you got to spend some time looking around. I've only visited that part of Colarado. Such a beautiful place.

  My aunt used to live in Colorado. It's one state I'd like to see.
