Fall Time!

So the last 8 weeks have finally slowed down.... just a hair though lol. Mike and I celebrated our birthdays- Mike on September 28th and I on October 1st. It was a very simple birthday for both of us this year but we were just happy to be together! I was able to surprise Michael and have one of his best friends come out and visit for a weekend. It was a very hectic and crazy weekend but it was good to see them and visit for a bit! Thanks for coming out Seth and Cindy!

Mike's mom and dad had the opportunity to come visit us back in the middle of October! We had so much fun and was so glad that we were able to host them! We did all the fun touristy things that you do when you go on vacation and of coerce, we relaxed and visited quite a bit!
So to start off, we drove to the top of Pikes Peak and it was so beautiful! I had not been up on top is years! I will have to admit that the ride up got me just a hsir, but the ride back down was not bad at all! After that wonderful trip, we went and visited the little town of Manitou Springs. It is a nice, quaint little town that is nussled up against the bast of Pikes Peak. We just walked around for an hour or two and found our Halloween costumes! We were so excited! !The next day we went and had a private tour of the Gleen Eyrie Castle. It was the home to the founder of Colorado Springs and the castle and land is just BEAUTIFUL!!!

We last visited the wonderful red rocks in Colorado Springs... Garden of the Gods! It's amazing how all the rocks got that way, but I wont bore you with the hundreds of pictures we took . We had a great time! In closing, there was lots more we wanted to do but not enough time, life is funny that way! We were lucky that the weather was just perfect the weekend they came out so we were able to enjoy the beautiful Colorado outdoors. Thanks again mom and dad Brown for visiting!
