2nd annual

Welcome to Dan's parents to Colorado Springs again for the 2nd annual trip! See how cute Dan's dimple is :) After we picked them up from DIA we headed over to Boulder and ate at Chipotle - Blaine and Rita's first trip there!

We ate mexican food twice that day...Amanda's Fonda in Manitou Springs for dinner. It's the best! Seriously, if you come visit us, we will take you there! In the picture with Blaine and Rita are Dan's aunt Cheryl and cousin Scott who just got back from his year long tour in Iraq.


We took Brindi with us on a hike. We hiked the Palmer Trail, it is one of our favorites! If you come visit us we will take you there too :)
Blaine and Rita are so adventurous!



Giving Brindi a drink of water. She is such a good dog and she loves hiking! Good, because we are going to do a lot of it over the next years!

Looking forward to next year!!

We want to go eat Mexican with you! You can even pick us up at the airport if that makes it more special for you!

So fun when family gets to come!!

What a great visit. It makes me want to visit, except, well, I live here already. We've never done the Palmer trail, so we will have to try that one out since it comes so highly praised (and the mexican restaurant too!).

Looks like you had some fun! The hiking here is so awesome. Gotta love Colorado Springs!

You didn't take me there when I came this time! I'm just trying to make you feel guilty ;) then again, I don't know if I could make that hike again. Eating and drinking kinda helps though, huh?

Cute cute cute blog! Can you believe I've actually never been to Amanda's Fonda? Weird, I know. Love the new pup, and I'm glad she likes to hike!

Love the hikes!!! Well you didn't miss us cause we went to church with Diana so we didn't go to 9th ward. Hope you are feeling better

Jeff and Lori said...

Wow, sounds like fun! We've never done the Palmer trail OR that Mexican restaurant. Any other great suggestions from a Springs native?

Landon and Alaina said...
