We are currently in Colorado Springs, staying just one more night before we head west. Colorado has been riddled with multiple forest fires because of the extreme heat and lack of rain, dry lightning and a suspected arsonist. We were staying at the beautiful Garden of the Gods Campground but because of the high heat and the eventual smoke and nearby evacuations I moved the kids and I to a hotel in the eastern part of Colorado Springs (near Peterson Air Force Base).
Today we are having lunch with some of my favorite people then we’ll come back here and do some swimming and tonight we are going to a Heather’s house of pets (haha Heather, I love you) and a simple, PASTA dinner. Pasta is one thing my kids really miss on the road.
Tomorrow morning, before the roosters come out to crow, we are driving up through Denver, through Wyoming and staying the night in Utah. After one night in Utah we are driving to Eureka California and spending two nights there. We can’t wait to get to California, visit the pacific ocean and see / feel the Redwood Forest. That will effectively cross 3 more items off of our bucket list…Read More
Today we met up with Heather, Nick and Sky (her boys) at the Omlette Parlour. Great food, even better company!
Gotta love a place that serves up good, vegetarian omlettes! Check it out: http://www.co-spgs-omeletteparlor.com/

I’ve been running these kids hard, trying to see a ton of different places. Last night London had a late sandwich and passed out after about 3 bites. He is totally adorable, isn’t he?
Only a few more days in Colorado (which we have packed with plans) then we head out west…. <3Read More
Sadly, her son passed away last year but that doesn’t stop us Batten Families from sticking together. Thank you to Cheri who treated us to lunch this week! <3Read More
