Zoo Ghost Town

This morning we decided to discover the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We ended up buying a membership so that I'll have a fun place to take the kids during the next year. The Zoo had the most amazing giraffe exhibit we've ever seen. They probably had 15 giraffes and a few baby ones. We bought the expensive 3 for $1 crackers to feed the giraffes.
We took tons of pictures of the animals, but to not bore you with pictures of animals I'm sure you've all seen before I'll let you look at this nice shot Cody took. I LOVE our telephoto lens!
There was a grizzly bear swimming in the water right in front of Tucker, but of course by the time we got the camera out he swam away. We had fun though. The zoo is right on the side of the mountain and there were a ton of animals out today.
My sister and her boyfriend, Dan, drove through Colorado and stayed with us for a couple days this week. We took them to Garden of the Gods and a Ghost town Museum.

Tucker is practicing his aim.
Can you believe they really used to use these types of instruments in dentistry?!!
We ended the excursion mining for gold! Too bad we didn't arrive over a hundred years ago. We might have found some. : (

Don't you just love exploring the towns you move to. We had a blast last summer exploring Houston. It seems that when you are where you grew up there isn't anything to do, but when you move somewhere new you can always find exciting places to visit. I'm looking forward to finding new places to explore in Houston this year.

The zoo is a favorite of ours as well-the membership has definitely paid off. Something about little kids and animals-it's magical!

Cody Calderweinie...As Rob Perry used to put it.

How is the ol' fam? I used to see your sister around every now and again at the HD, but not for a while. When are you going to be in town again? I can't say I'll make it to Colorado anytime soon, but you'll have to let me know if SLC is in the near future!
