I love Colorado

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! This sentence descibes Colorado to a "tee" for me lately. As we drove around out beloved Springs I realized how fortunate I am to see the Peak every day. To smell fresh clean air and play in clear waters. I am blessed to live in this gorgeous city and in this lovely land. I wake up almost every morning and stare at the peak and I am amazed by the beauty.

Today we went to Memorial Park so Rex our oldest dog could get in some well needed Exercise. He chased those pink balls in the water for a good 45 minutes. The kids waded in the shallow end of the lake. Today was 88 so perfect weather. I threw Chiquita in the water and watched her swim back shaking as only a chihuhua would do. Then Ro and I went for the mile walk around the lake. The kids laughed and had a great time. Roana even ran into her best friend from school Following that we ran to 7-11 and bought some slurpees. I think next week we are going to Garden of The Gods. Yes we live here in Colorado but we also need sometimes to be tourists in our wonderful city. Below basically sums up our day.

I am so jealous of you. Colorado is #1 on my ideal place to live! We've visited many times, and I always feel a sense of peace that I can not find any where else!!! Nice pics. :)
