Vacation Time

We needed a vacation and decided that it would be fun to take a jaunt to Denver and see some of the things the area had to offer. We left Uncle Dustin in charge of the carnival and found a KOA (it's the kiddie's favorite campground, they LOVE the funky bikes!). We spent some time swimming in the pool and just hanging out on Thursday. Friday night we decided to try out Chuck E. Cheese. None of us had been there before, except Hannah. We ordered pizza, got some tokens, and let loose. Some of us had to really concentrate while playing the games!
On Saturday we went to the Denver Zoo. We saw lots of animals and even came away with all the kids! We were worried that the zoo would think we were trying to smuggle monkeys out of the exhibit. Can't you see the resemblance...?
Some of our other favorites were penguins~


and seeing how we measured up to the polar bear~

Sunday we spent the day at Elitch Gardens.We started the day on the carousel.

Then David, Hannah, and Seth took off for some roller coaster action. So Bugga, Pyper and I headed on over to Startoon Studios where they rode the balloon ride and a bunch of others...

Then I got sick of taking pictures. But there were LOTS more roller coasters, some water slides, a couple runs through the haunted house, and a laser light show to top off the night! We had a blast!
