Colorado Post -- #2

Thursday, 8-18-16

We fell in love with our apartment when we checked in!! This rental has only been available for about two months is a new venture for Jeff, the owner. Everything was so clean and new and it was so nicely decorated!

From the parking lot, we walked up onto the deck to this cute arrangement!
A little table with an umbrella -- complete with a little red owl!
Upon entering the apartment, there was a long hallway.
On each side was a bedroom, and at the end of the hallway was this really
nice living room! It was cozy -- the couch was so comfy!!
The kitchen had everything we could need! Dishes and a microwave...
and they even stocked the fridge with eggs, butter and bread!
There was a little table with four chairs too!
There were two bedrooms -- one had a full size bed, and the other one had a
twin bed with a twin trundle! We decided to give Kiki and Blaise the full bed, and
took this cute bedroom. It was decorated very cute and there was a nice closet
and some storage bins. And, surprisingingly, the beds were very comfy and we
slept great all week long! Each room had it's own air condition unit, and
we were able to make it very chilly for sleeping!
The other bedroom was cute too!
After we got settled in, we drove to downtown Colorado Springs to the
Food Truck fest where the race packet pick up was occurring. It was a bit rainy,
and there were only a few food once they boys picked up the packets and
we scoped things out, we decided to move on back to Manitou Springs to have some dinner.
We decided to eat at Creekside, and it was pretty tasty there! I had some
pepperoni pizza, and Chris had a burger and fries. We had a few drinks and
enjoyed our evening with Kiki and Blaise. They are a lot of fun, and so easy to be with.
That is very desirable in travel companions!
Next to the restaurant was a fun arcade area, and I discovered this adorable
donkey ride! Couldn't pass that up now could I?
Blaise captured this candid shot of me and Chris walking through the arcade!
After dinner, we decided to stop at The Keg, a little bar in town across from our apartment.
We enjoyed a few drinks and good conversation there before turning in!
The Fab Four!

More to come!!
