Colorado Road Trip..

Tessa and I returned from our Colorado road trip all in one piece! We got back on Thursday and I had my big 3D ultrasound and shower on lots of pictures to come...

First off..our Colorado pictures & story:

Day 1: Arrive in Denver and rent car. Drive to Boulder where we are starving and have dinner at Juanita's on Pearl Street. After a little walk, we get back to our hotel (Marriott) and conk out.

Day 2: Lunch at the Med in Boulder. Spend all day driving to Telluride. Stay at the Peaks Resort and head down to downtown Telluride via gondola for dinner--what an experience--heading straight down in the pitch black night in a gondola!

Day 3: Walk around Telluride and have breakfast.
Drive to Crested Butte (stopped at the weirdest McDonald's ever on the way..keep that in mind if you plan to Big Mac it in Gunnison, CO). Dinner in Crested Butte.

Day 4: Breakfast in Crested Butte.

Afraid of Keebler Pass, so we drove around and took Independence Pass to Aspen. Arrive in Aspen and walk around and shop :) Dinner at my favorite: Takah Sushi. Stayed at the Hotel Jerome.

Day 5: Lunch at my favorite: Johnny McGuires. Walk around a bit, hit Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for a caramel apple and head off to Vail. Arrived in Vail where weather was pool worthy, so spent an hour relaxing and then ate a yummy Italian meal at Campo de Fiori.

Day 6: Breakfast at hotel (Sonnenalp) and a short walk around Vail. Head to Denver to go to the airport and go through the worst rain storms ever (Tessa sleeps through it all). Head home...
