Last week, we had a great family day at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This zoo is set right on the side of the Rocky Mountains. The views are amazing! We were there 4 hours and still did not see the entire zoo. The kids had such a good time running all over and seeing all the animals. Being able to ride the chair lift to the top of the mountain and back down was really cool! We have been to several zoos in our life and this one is now our favorite! I loved looking over and seeing the excitement on my children’s faces as they stood just feet from their favorite animals. We are very grateful for my brother and his wife for treating us to this day at the zoo. Having special days out like this are fun for everyone! The kids left very happy and completely worn out, so did my husband and I! We went home, put those tired kids to bed early, and Ricky and I jumped into our beds. It was a wine and chocolate kind of night recovering from our busy, exhausting, yet perfect day!
