Manitou Springs, Colorado

I took the kids to Manitou Springs last weekend while visiting Santa's Workshop. It's a cute little town near Colorado Springs. The link calls it, "Colorado's Hidden Treasure" and I would have to agree. Lots to do there.

Caroline and I ran into this unusual little arcade and game district last year while on our trip, so we went back for some more fun. Dozens of these once-loved rides found outside of Walmarts and grocery stores.

Guess who loved the choo choo?

Inside one of the many penny arcades. Like stepping back in time.

Caroline's favorite!

And, Carter's....

Channeling "Big".

Shopped a bit in the cute little stores nearby.

And, our never shy son joined the big kids for some hula-hooping.

Lots of cool buildings and churches downtown.

Our haunted museum from last year. Unfortunately, it was closed the day we were there.

Stopped at our favorite candy store for some gummy eggs.

Getting chilly.....time to go.
