Carol's car is on a boat headed to Germany, so she's been driving an old Chevy Malibu that belongs to her sister, Christine. Carol returned the Chevy yesterday, so today, I drove down to Colorado Springs to retrieve Carol.
We could have driven straight home to Aurora, but instead, we decided to make a day of it. Our first stop was the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.This zoo is home to all kinds of animals...
but everyone goes there to see the giraffes.
And the giraffes...
I honestly think my life would be better if I could pet a giraffe every day.
After the zoo, we headed over to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.I've been meaning to visit this museum for years, and it didn't disappoint.
There were a few real horses,
a lot of horse art...
and so many saddles.
This was a really fun day.
Please don't stay in Germany too long, Carol. I'm going to miss you and all our great adventures!
