Spring Break 2019: Colorado

Colorado Springs

We spent the first half of the week in Colorado Springs.

Le Baguette in Old Colorado City
The Penny Arcade in Manitou Springs was a blast and is a must-visit.
The Love Tester didn’t turn out so well for 3/4 of us.
Park in Manitou Springs
Dat’s Italian in Old Colorado City: awesome food and service.

Loveland

Midweek, we headed up to Loveland to stay with Auntie Car and Unkie Doo. We hadn’t been there since Aly was just a toddler, but we had a blast as we always did on previous visits.

After a great week in Colorado, I dropped the girls off at DEN and then picked up my friend Tom for our adventure at Great Sand Dunes National Park, which is coming up in the next post.
