This mom is a HUGE fan of hiking. So when the forecast for last Sunday was suppose to be sunny and in the 70's I knew what I wanted to do for Mother's Day. Luckily, my family was up for a good hike too so we headed to Cheyenne Mountain State Park which is literally just across the street from one of the main gates on Fort Carson.
The scenery is just gorgeous and the weather couldn't have been better.
Here I am after climbing up on one of the big rocks. Yay, I made it!
Some of the beautiful scenery.
And some of the adorable wildlife.
After our nearly 3 mile hike we were in desperate need of something yummy and cold so we went to I Top It where we ate some enormous bowls of frozen yogurt. We love that place because they offer some delicious Dairy Free fro yo which is perfect for our daughter who is allergic to dairy (and has to eat Gluten Free thanks to having Celiac's Disease). Gotta love a place where the whole family can eat and not have to worry about food allergies and cross contamination.
So over all our Mother's Day was fantastic! How did you spend yours?
