What a day! After a quiet morning at home, Caroline and I picked up Carter from school and headed to Colorado Springs. It's a great city with so much to do. First, we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It sits on the side of Cheyenne Mountain and the setting is gorgeous.
The drive there. Such beautiful fall leaves changing colors.
Ready to go in!
First and favorite stop.
Feeding the giraffes.
Here is Caroline, becoming hysterical, trying to stay calm in order to convince Carter to feed them on his own.
He finally did it.
Carter riding a horse.
Here are a bunch of small children (and Caroline looking out of place) watching Alouicious the pig be fed.
Watching the hippos have their teeth brushed.
On one of the beautiful trails.
One more visit to the giraffes.
