Phoenix Trip

IMG_3483

Recently we took a trip to the Phoenix Arizona area. It sure is warmer there this time of year than in Colorado. We actually stayed in Fountain Hills, a Phoenix Suburb. Definitely rich people country. We had a great time which included taking in a SF Giants spring training game. Check a few photos of the area.

Orchid Adventure

P1050987


Carol and I went to the 
Denver Botanic Gardens today to view their Orchid show. The Garden is pretty much shutdown during Winter, but they have a greenhouse with Orchids on display. It you are not a flower person then you will not appreciate these photos. I appreciate Orchids because they are so darned elegant.

Our good friend Larry Liebscher and his sidekick Winston visited us in Colorado Springs recently. We took him to a really beautiful are called Seven Falls which is owned and operated by the world famous Broadmoor Hotel. A good time was had by all, even despite the oxygen deprived environment. 
Check out a few photos of the Seven Falls area. Be sure and check out the Chipmunks!

Reposting a few articles to our blog. We have seen Emily fly gliders two times now and were terrified both times. But, she loves it. I don’t think I did anything like that when I was growing up, how about you? 
Check out some of our photos.
