About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Colorado- Day 6

Kind of left you hanging on the CO trip, didn't I?
I forgot I had one more stash of pics!

More flowers from the Broadmoor...


           View of the pool when you first enter.  It takes your breath
       away.


           My girls were the only children there.  They had the slides 
       all to themselves.:)


                     I never relax.  It's not who I am.  But, I did relax here.


                               If we go again, I am claiming on of these tents.  
                     I will only leave when the pool closes.


                                 


       The Broadmoor has quite a few lovely restaurants.  This is their
      little coffee/quick eat spots. 
      I love how someone sketched the hotel in chalk.  Charming.


            After we left the hotel, we headed for the Rocky Mountain 
        National Park.
        We had to pull over a few times as there were sights to see!


                         Elk!
                At least 12 of them.  They were so kind to stop and let 
                the paparazzi do their thing.:)



                              Further down the road we spotted this big guy!  


                                I wanted so badly to clean off his antlers!  
                      Perhaps it's "the look" for moose.


                               

                             Long hikes. (In my book)  With waterfalls.  You 
                   better give me something to look forward to when
                   sweating is involved.:)


                             

                                   Sweet little baby moose.


                                   Breathtaking views.  Truly.

         
                                Can't wait to go back.


**Gorgeous giveaway in my friend, Victoria's shop!  Beautiful!  Hurry, it ends tonight!  Go here!!**

I'm going to be honest... I am jealous of your vacation to the Broadmoor. You know I love that place. So special to me. The grounds are just lovely and that water slide is a blast. Both of my girls would zoom down that thing. Good times! :)

Amazing! Everything is so amazing! I thought the hotel pool was gorgeous--then I saw the moose. I so need of a vacation to CO!

Lori said...

Such a beautiful place, Lori! And I totally get what you mean about not relaxing. I am the same way. We leave for a vacation to Tennessee this Saturday. SO EXCITED! I have always wanted to go to the Smoky Mountains in the fall time : )
I just hope and pray I can relax there like you did in Colorado.

looks dreamy! We just got back from a Rocky Mountain High vacation ourselves! My husband was speaking in Denver at a lectureship, but we got in Rocky Mt. National Park and Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods! It's a beautiful place!

Hi Lori
Your pictures are wonderful. The pool looks beautiful and those slides look lots of fun. I love the little tents too - perfect :) You must go back soon and spend the whole time relaxing. Can I come too? I think I would like to go to The Broadmoor one day. The picture of Katie is lovely. Glad you saw so much wildlife and got pictures too.
