Time Travel


Home again! Lola and family flew off to the Rockies for an adventure, it was a lovely trip. An old family cabin in the mountains was where we stayed, with the Engineer's extended family taking up residence in cabins close by. We celebrated Independence Day with a large family party and much delicious food. Played many games and explored the dramatic Colorado landscape. There were so many moments of wonder that I might be spreading the tales over the next few days.

For much of the trip I felt as if we had traveled back in time. One of our holiday adventures was a trip down the road to a town full of interesting history, healing springs and once considered a sacred area by the Cheyenne and Ute tribes. Of course it is now home to a collection of tourist shops, and they also have an amazing attraction, an old time Penny Arcade!

Let the Amusements begin!

Game On!

Oh dear, I'm seeing pink elephants, I probably should not have stopped here...
Wild Horses in the Wild West.
Hoops

The doctor is in...
And no arcade would be complete without the irresistible Photo booth


For a cool slideshow of all the arcade photos just click here!

Well, that was a heap of fun! I will return with tall tales from the Wild West...outlaws, saloon girls and gold mines OH MY!

Happy Monday!

Can you share where you were. I am in Colorado right now and wondered how close this is to where my children live. Reminds me of old times for sure. Loved the tour.

Lovely to have you back, lady. Hope the washing mountain has receded to a minimal floordrobe but a bit of that Wild West stays in your system!
