Jeff was fortunate to have a few days off once we arrived at our new home. So we continued to unpack and get settled. The boys room was one of the first to be completely unpacked. We also got our picture wall started. Jeff and I were going for that "hipster-oh-look-nothing-matches" vibe with our pictures. We are going to keep adding to it through the years and make it more unmatched. The Type A in me cringes, but the Type B thinks she'll have some fun.

When unpacking started to get to us, we tried to find a few fun adventures to fill our time. We happened to stumble on one of our favorite places to visit so far: Manitou Springs. Only a few minutes from where we live this tourist town is adorable and full of life. They also have a world- famous arcade full of old-school games. You will, at the most, pay only 50 cents to play. So $20 will get you over an hour of fun. The boys (and their parents) love it.  
Manitou Springs is known for its healing springs. They have a few directly feeding through the town that you can taste. We tried a couple. It's very salty, almost briny, tasting. Watching other people take drinks, some were unaffected while others spat and sputtered.

 Where's Waldo? I mean, Jeff?
Gibby LOVES all of the quarter rides. While Caderyn and his Dad play games, Gibby and I hop around from ride to ride. He is meticulous in his choosing, it has to be the right ride for his adventurous mind. The airplane is a favorite, he could go up and down on this ride for hours.
