Grandma and Grandpa Howell Visit Colorado Springs (Part One)

Grandma and Grandpa Howell were so kind to go out of the their way to come stay with us for a couple days as they made their way from MN to CA for the winter.  They arrived at night, and the next day we drove up Pike's Peak.  It provided us with wonderful views, but boy was it chilly!  On the way down we found a sunny spot guarded from the wind, and had a little picnic.
Did you  know the North Pole is actually located in Colorado? ;)
Feeling a little cold at the peak!
So neat!
On the way down we were able to see Big Horn Sheep!
I discovered yet another similarity between Jake and his Grandpa on this visit.  They are both explorers.
Lunch time!

Eden and Haley went to the North Pole when they were little! So, YES, we knew the NP was in Colorado, lol!
