finally, here are pics from our quick little three day trip to Durango. (Remind me that I still need to tell you why my little sister's nickname is Balls:))
This is the Animas River that runs right through town.
On Monday Hubby stayed at the campsite playing WOW on his laptop while Miss S and I went shopping:) Miss S really wanted her new little purse to be in her photo - we bought it on Saturday at a garage sale for .25.
The Strater Hotel on Main Street. I love how this picture turned out!!
The front of our cabin. Seriously folks, I LOVE camping, and I love camping in tents, but there is nothing that beats a charming little cabin like this. Inside is a double bed and a bunk bed, a little desk, and a night stand...all made from logs. And it's air conditioned:) We belong to the KOA Kampers Klub so it was only $45 a night. And at the campground there are showers, a swimming pool, game room, miniature golf, ice cream and a movie every night and various planned kid's activities...and so much more! We made breakfast both mornings at the cabin - one morning was scrambled eggs and sausage and the next morning was oatmeal and fruit. YUM!
Moki hooked us up with recommendations for several restaurants and stores and we hit almost every one:) My favorites were the yarn store, aptly named Yarn, and the Humane Society Thrift Store. It was right next to the Humane Society and Hubby actually said...wow you can adopt animals at the thrift store? What a goofball!
And a finally parting shot as we were headed out of town. Durango is nestled into a little valley so you get occassional shots as you are heading up the moutain and out of town. It's quite breathtaking. KOA takes reservations a year in advance so I told Hubby we are making our reservations immediately for next summer! I want to spend a whole week either in Durango again, maybe Flagstaff, maybe Colorado Springs, maybe Moab....
Take a peak here....the layout I made for "All About Me" is one of the featured ones on the challenge blog:):) I'm thrilled about that:) I can't wait to get to work on the next challenge.
