america the beautiful park

we’ve been looking for a way to get the kids out of the house and do something. i decided that today we’d venture out to america the beautiful park. it was opened in 2006 – that year also happened to be the 200th anniversary of the writing of the song america the beautiful. which was written by katherine lee bates at the top of pike’s peak right here in colorado springs.

turns out parks aren’t at the top of the must do list for the 11 and up set.


but that didn’t seem to keep them from having a good time.
