The Original Steakburger

My husband and I just got back from a road trip to Colorado to visit my son and his wife.  We always have such a wonderful time.  The first night my son cooked us a delicious dinner and we sat on the patio and enjoyed the mountain air!  The next morning we went to a new breakfast place called Snooze ... love the name!  It has a very unique breakfast menu and everything we ordered was AMAZING!  We then had to stop at IKEA ... can't go to Denver and not visit that BIG BLUE BUILDING!  We loaded up our rental car with our purchases and then headed over to Crate and Barrel where I found some oven ware bowls that will be perfect for french onion soup!!  The town of Parker was having their annual bbq festival so we got to sample some award winning bbq for dinner, and of course made our annual trek to Swirls for some frozen yogurt afterwards.  Sunday we went to the weekly farmer's market in Parker.  This is one of our favorite places to go when we visit the kids.  The vendors are so friendly and there are SO MANY wonderful things to choose from.  My son drove us down to Colorado Springs in the afternoon and then we continued on to Cripple Creek, which was about another hour around the other side of Pike's Peak.  There was some fire damage visible from the road, but mostly the vistas were full of beautiful pines and aspens.  A few aspens were already starting to turn their colors.  Monday we had a leisurely day just enjoying my son and awaiting my daughter-in-law to return to town so that we could spend a few hours with her before we headed up into the mountains to Black Hawk.  Spent a few nights enjoying the mountain vistas and a few pulls on the slot machines and then headed back to Omaha on Wednesday.  Gotta love a 9 hour road trip!  About the time we were driving back to Omaha, my daughter and her family were flying in to Parker to visit Mark and Chrysty and spend a week in Colorado as well.  We normally all go at once, but this year we split up our time.

Here's a pic of Paisley having lunch yesterday at one of their favorite places!

I think Paisley is going to question her parents in about 20 years and ask "what were you thinking"???!!!!
