Colorado Springs | Day 1

Carsen woke up this morning at 6 a.m. (Lacking about three hours of much needed sleep for this four year old). So we greeted the day with smiles and grapes.

A little dance off before we headed to the garden of the gods.

Although I went against my better judgement and put Carsen's flip flops on, that didn't stop this brave one from climbing with the others. He had so much fun!

 Photos will not do this beautiful place justice.

After the garden of the gods we went to Lincoln Center. It was an elementary school that they converted into a trendy eatery area with a coffee shop, cafe, pizzaria, barber shop, design studio, BBQ, crossfit, etc.

This photo was taken at Building Three Coffee Roasters where I had the yummiest Kombucha.

We ate the yummiest pizza from Nightingale Bread. From their website: "Nightingale Bread is a craft bake shop on the north end of downtown Colorado Springs. We make naturally leavened breads with shop-milled, organic, heirloom grains from small farms, and we serve nice breakfast and lunch fare at the appropriate hours and following the seasons. There may or may not also be bread making classes, a secret late night soup-and-bread supper club, and strange rumors of Donut Day."

We ordered a Pepperoni pizza with organic tomatoes, Volpi pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, New Roots Farm organic basil, garlic, EVOO and a half Potato Leek pizza with organic roasted potato, organic heavy cream, New Roots Farm organic leek, fresh mozzarella, organic rosemary, EVOO.

YUMMY! Best pizza ever IMO.

It rained in the afternoon so we painted rocks. 

Jenni is basically super mom and one amazing cook and grill master. Tonight we ate turkey burgers with bacon inside, homemade sweet potato fries cooked in coconut oil plus green beans and broccoli.

I love this place.
