Weekend Vacation

My husband had a five day weekend (he had to ask for two of the days, but they gave them to him no problem-- first time he's asked for off in a year and a half), so we went to Colorado. Here's a couple/few pictures from when we were there. Helen Hunt Falls.

A different part of it:
We didn't hike up it (I was wearing flip-flops).
Some from Garden of the Gods.... (Taken from inside the truck... in case you were wondering what the darker blue strip is on the top of the picture :P)

It is SO green there this year! I guess they are finally out of their drought there (now that we don't live there anymore) :(
Another big rock at Garden of the Gods. (From the truck..)

And another one...

This one is when we got out and walked (I wore my walking shoes this day). I didn't take any pictures of the classic tourist ones: Kissing Camels, the Balanced Rock, etc.... or of Pikes Peak. I do have a Picture Trail Album from when we lived there, that has all of those in it. If you would like to see more pictures. Turn up your volume, there's music too. :-D I am not a photographer by any means, but I thought I would share them with you, anyway.
I edited my profile picture. Since we don't have Koda anymore :( I thought I should put a different picture up. It's a picture I took of cactus (or is it cacti?) growing out of a rock. I figured since we live in the desert, now... I also added a new blog link in my sidebar: My Hook and I. I found her blog via Crochetville. Susan had posted about her 'Michigan Afghan'. Well being from Michigan; I of course had to go see why it was called a Michigan afghan... :P She didn't really say in her post; so I went to look at her blog, and the rest is history.... (Incidentally, it is called the Michigan Afghan because she started it on her vacation to Michigan. :P) I also added another blog: A Mom Living Life ~~ Hope you're not hungry.... ;)

I like that one too. I wish I could have edited that sign out of there. It would look nicer. :P

Beautiful pictures. Looks like you had a great vacation. I love Colorado, though it's been a few years since we've been there. Just out doing some blog walking this am, and found my way here.

Hope you'll swing by for a visit, welcome mats always out.
