Travel & Vacation: Exploring Cozumel, Mexico

'Good morning sunshine!'

Beautiful ocean sunrise in Mexico!

Exploring Cozumel, Mexico! We had a blast sight seeing, meeting people, shopping, and going Snorkeling at 3 different reefs during our day in Mexico. We even got to talk with the girls for a tiny bit because we got cell phone service while walking through the area!

'We had a little stow away on the balcony.  The bird stayed there for over a day.  Whenever we came out on the balcony it would just hop around our of our way.  Guess it thought we weren't too much of a threat.'
This little guy caught a ride on our balcony and stayed there for several hours.
'Port security worker telling us about the bird he is holding.  I even got to pet it, super cool!'

Travel & Vacation: Cozy Cow Dairy (Windsor, CO)

P1370505c

 Cozy Cow Dairy

On one of our trips to Colorado my cousin Renelle introduced us to Cozy Cow Dairy in Windsor, CO.  It was a hot summer day and we were heading back to her house when we made a slight detour to the Cozy Cow Dairy.  The girls LOVED it!  Not only did they have amazing fresh chocolate milk, ice cream, cheeses, and more they had a farm animal petting zoo.

Before even going into the store we had to go by and say “hi” to each of the farm animals.  They had some precious little ones so they girls thought it was so neat.  After petting the animals and washing our hands we enjoyed some fresh chocolate milk and ice cream.  It was DELICIOUS!!!  It hit the spot on the hot summer day too.  After our special treat we headed back outside to pet the farm animals once more before heading back to Renelle’s house.  If you are in the Windsor area this is a great place to spot, cool down, and get a treat.  The kids will probably enjoy the farm animals too!

Travel & Vacation: Animals at the Denver Zoo (Denver, CO)

Travel & Vacation - Colorado - Denver Zoo - P1370270c

 Elephant on the move

Our kids love animals.  On one of our trips to Colorado we had an opportunity to go to the Denver Zoo with extended family.  The kids had a blast.  It was neat seeing all the different animals, going to show, learning about the zoo animals, activities, and so much more.  Thankful for a chance to go to the Denver Zoo with the kids.

If your family enjoys Zoo’s and you are in the Denver, Coloardo area you should check this one out.  They have a lot of animals to see.  The shows and activities are fun and very educational for the kids.

Elephant Show, this elephant was only a few feet in front of us.  I was just hoping it wasn’t going to spray us.  If you are at the Denver Zoo I highly recommend the elephant show, it was really neat.  Kids and adults really enjoyed it!

Travel & Vacation: Big Thompson Indian Village (Colorado)

P1370225c

Big Thompson Indian Village

As I was going back over a few pictures from our 2012 trip to Colorado I noticed we had a handful from our stop at Big Thompson Indian Village.   We made a stop at the Big Thompson Indian Village on our way back down the mountain from Estates Park, CO.  Unfortunately, after being there for several decades Big Thompson Indian Village was destroyed in the 2013 flood.

The only thing left after the 2013 flood waters went through was the sign. Big Thompson Indian Village was a fun place to stop, stretch your legs, browse the gift shop, check out their huge tepee, and more. The store had been there for many years, but we had no idea that the next time we were in the area that it would be completely gone.  Floods can wipe out many homes and businesses very quickly.  At this time the owners do not plan on restoring the Big Thompson Indian Village so we may not be able to stop there again, but we are thankful for the chance to visit when we did!
