Colorado Springs is so very beautiful. We have loved it since we arrived here a little less than two months ago. This park is in a darling little neighborhood, and my kids and I decided to brave the chilly winter air to go play. Snow was on it's way so we knew we had to act fast. I think we lasted all of 5 minutes before they were begging me to get back in the car. It was cold but more damaging than that it was WINDY!! The pictures make it look like a beautiful, sunny, summer afternoon. Nope. It was just great light. IT WAS COLD. C.O.L.D. I put up no argument when the kids wanted to head in for a nice, warm cup of hot chocolate. (which we go through like Kleenex these days.)
Little Miss P was definitely the funniest. She looks like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man in her jacket (which I practically have to duct tape to her so she won't take it off) with her hat falling over her eyes. I'm sure she can't see a darn thing but she just cruises around like she's having the time of her life.
It was so stinking windy that he couldn't even keep his eyes open for a picture.
I love these plants. I call them wheat but I honestly have no idea what they are. But they're everywhere and I think the reason Colorado Springs plants them is because they look so pretty when they blow in the wind... which is always blowing.
