High Five for Friday!

This week has been so much fun! My dad came to visit and I made sure he got a good taste of what Colorado is all about. 

1. The first day I took him to Garden of the Gods and we did a little bit of rick climbing and hiking. My dad and I share a passion for adventure, so we went off the normal path and found a bunch of really neat red rocks. So naturally I decided it was a good idea to climb them. :)
2. My dad and I made the drive up Pikes Peak and the weather couldn't have been any more perfect. We also went at a great time to see the leaves change colors. It is officially fall here in Colorado! 
3. We also made a trip to the Cave of Winds! It was so much fun. I have been there before with Joe and I knew it was on the list of things that I needed to take my dad to. Unfortunately, the candle your was not available. But, the exploration tour was just as good. 
4. A few coworkers of mine had suggested that we go and see the Denver zoo and it was such a great zoo! The animals were so active and they had every type of animal that you can think of. I will be taking Joe to the Denver zoo when he comes home for sure!
5. I just might have the best boyfriend ever. He knows exactly when to send me flowers and when to surprise me. It's always so nice to come home to fresh flowers. 

I  am so sad that my dad is leaving but the good news is that Joe will be home in a month!! 

I hope you have an amazing weekend! 


  1. Wow, that looks like an amazing place to hike!!

  2. gorgeous! Colorado is most definitely on my bucket list! It is SO gorgeous!

  3. I love Garden of the Gods. Such gorgeous scenery. We drove through C. Springs when my husband (then BF) was going from Fort Lewis to Fort Sill. I made him stop at Garden of the Gods.

  4. What a great visit you had with your Dad. It's always so hard to say goodbye but your right, only 1 more month and Joe will be home. Definitely something to look forward to.

  5. I went to Colorado once and it certainly is beautiful! Glad you had a great time with your Dad!!

  6. I just found your blog and I looove the name of it!! I just followed you- if you're interested I'd love it if you could follow me too! Can't wait to see more :) xx
