Colorado and it's Unfortunate Events {Part 3}

So yesterday was a bust. Y'all must be really shy! Thanks Jen for linking-up! Well maybe one day the rest of you will bust out of your shell. Blogger is the easiest place for it! Until then, read on...

You might want to start at {Part 1} and {Part 2} before you read this last segment of our Colorado trip.


After an all morning adventure through the Guanella Pass our stomachs we're running on empty. We ended up driving by this beauty and had to stop! The Hubs loves roadside hot dog stands! This one, Coney Island, was unique! Not only did it have hot dogs, but it had Jackalope brats, Buffalo brats, and many other strange foods to eat!
We figured out really quick that this place was popular! We waited in line for 45 minutes!


I had the Buffalo Brats. It was spicy! The hubs had a foot long and Zane had a regular hot dog. The onion rings were delish!
 

After we got our bellies full, we headed back towards our camping area. We stopped at a few more places along the way!

 

This place was neat! I would LOVE to go to a concert here!



After I stalled the truck out a trillion times at Red Rocks we found this really neat place that Zane enjoyed! It was called Dinosaur Ridge. They had a few dinosaur fossils! They had pieces of bone, and LOTS of foot prints! Zane loved it, especially the statues!


The rest of the week we visited small mining towns, a shopped a little.


On our way home we stopped at a hotel. The first thing we did was get in the pool! It was nice for the hubs since he didn't have to put a lot of weight on his foot. Zane learned how to jump in the pool on his own with no floats! After swimming we ordered pizza and wings. The boy prefers wings over pizza, can't you tell?



Despite all of the unfortunate events, we made the most of our trip and still had a great time! Colorado was amazing! I cannot WAIT to go back next year! Hopefully by then we will have a 4 door JK to take off road! ha! In my dreams!
