Colorado Springs - Day 4

Monday morning we slept in a little bit and then drove down to Royal Gorge, something that Adam really wanted to see. The bridge was built in 1929 and is supposed to be similar to the Brooklyn Bridge. The main reason the bridge was built was to be a tourist attraction, which seems crazy to me. Anyway, it was a lot of fun. They had a carousel, incline railroad that took you down to the bottom of the gorge, a trolley, a petting zoo, shows and a band, and an aerial tram.
For dinner we met up with the Mitchells one last time to go to The Airplane Restaurant. It was a lot of fun and the boys loved it.
After dinner we went to Seven Falls. And YES my pregnant body walked up all those stairs. I don't know how long my legs were shaking after but it was for quite sometime. And I just think this is funny...Aiden loved this toy magazine and looked at it the whole time we were in the car, even during diaper changes.

And a special shout out to Chad, Tricia and all the kids for entertaining us and showing us around Colorado Springs. It was great to be with you and we can't wait to see you again, even if it is going to be a whole year!
