Brynlee, Haven, Liv, Bristol
We watched someone do a bungee jump type thing into the canyon. Liv was all ready to sign up! (I had some SERIOUS anxiety at night on this trip. Broken arm flash backs. Might take awhile for us to make it to the grand canyon with Liv!)
The tour guide told us within 2 weeks of being in a pitch black cave you would become legally blind from your eyes being dilated that long. In 2 months you would go insane. I'll take his word for it. This one however will be happy to test it I'm sure!
The girls literally held hands everywhere they went. Wouldn't it be nice if we gave Olivia a sister she could play with and hold hands with?! Oh wait....that's right...we did! Sorry Haven, maybe next time!
Ready to show off some pinball skillz.
Some games were a penny, some free, some a dime, some a nickel, but most a quarter
There was an old timey peep show called "Doctor's Office" to the right. Liv was very curious about it, I steered her away successfully. She walked around the whole place turning the candy machine knobs and eating whatever stray pieces fell out. Classy.
Liv set a new record for the amount of time it takes to pick out prizes with tickets. In the end some candy won out of course.
When the Mears headed back to Denver, we headed to Graffiti falls which was a quick 10 minute stop for Ryan and Liv to explore. Thanks to their expert rock climbing skills, Ryan earned himself a souvenir of a new pair of jeans at Target....although something tells me the people of Colorado wouldn't have minded his ripped crotch at all!
Is this something inappropriate? I'm too old to know so instead I just take my kid's pic in front of it.
For dinner we headed to this themed pizza place, Fargo's (thanks for the recommendation Crains!), it's like an old timey Victorian Western saloon. The workers are all in costume and there's dead animals on the walls and stained glass windows and lacey curtains and a piano that plays itself. Real campy, real fun.
Then we headed home to roast smores in our fireplace. We considered making them outside but it was windy and a tad cold that night and I didn't want to be responsible for burning the mountains down.
Up next....Garden of the Gods...which I feel guilty about capitalizing so I will call it Garden of the gods.
