On Valentines day, J. was asked if he would think about relocating to Colorado Springs for his job. Not quite the gift I was looking for, but it was an idea worthy of attention and discussion.
After we talked and decided we might actually consider it, his company arranged a trip out to Colorado Springs for our whole family for the first half of March so we would have time to explore the sights, check out neighborhoods, meet some other homeschoolers, etc.
We got in yesterday and had time to hit the Denver Aquarium before driving to the hotel in Colorado Springs.
Airport pictures after traveling for 7 hours.
Pictures from the aquarium (which was awesome by the way):
There was a long line, but the folks knew what they were doing and had a bubble machine to occupy/distract kids while parents bought the tickets.
Here is a link to her actual video!
These are the brightest sea stars I have ever seen.
There are tigers at this aquarium.
Cool viewing windows in the floor.
