Garden of the Gods - Driving from Louisiana to Alaska

May 5

We stayed at a motel last night and was on our way early this morning to see what Colorado Springs had to offer. 
Dh has things he'd like us to see. He is very good at this trip planning thing. 

I'm still hoping to meet up with two of my mommy friends from our online forum, but it is looking more impossible by the moment since we are so stretched for time and I couldn't contact them in the first place to set up confirmed dates and places. 

It's beautiful here in Colorado Springs. We are in the Garden of the Gods drive through-around-in-between....and it is quite an experience to see these rock formations and the color too.

Some of our gorgeous photos:

My Question:
Do you like taking photographs?
I love capturing a moment and sometimes I wish I had a think on my wrist that took photos on command so I didn't miss the little things that my kids do each day that are so cute or just other things happening in life that would be nice to capture.

And I found a new Friday Follow going on. I kept wondering what happened to the old one since I was gone for more than a month. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  1. i like taking photos. the best was our 2008 cruise of the Med. the only electronic things we took were our 2 cameras. it was so fun to see how differently we looked at the world on that trip. hubs is very macro, i'm very micro. at least behind the lens.

  2. I like taking pictures! But I always forget my camera...
    I have been to garden of the gods, Its Awesome! I grew up in Colorado!

  3. Gorgeous photos! Yes, TechyDad and I love taking photos. I think in the age of digital photography we are more free to click and not worry. Since we can select what we print, it is not as cost prohibitive like film used to be.

  4. I love to take photos. I just wish I was better at it. I tried taking an online photography class once but didn't make it past the first assignment! LOL!

  5. You got an eye for a good pic there Babygirl! Dang, those are great! I would've forgotten what is which by now. Did ya take notes? lol So, glad you're sharing.

  22. Hi,
    I do like taking pictures. However with our new digital camera (cheap one) I tend to shake and make the pictures blurry. So I usually have someone else take them.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway. Good Luck!
