We spent two afternoons (one on our last full day in Colorado and the other in the afternoon the day we visited Focus on the Family) at a playground in Manitou Springs... Soda Springs Park. It was the playground that the littles wanted to revisit, because they liked it that much. For anyone visiting the Springs area with kids, this playground is a MUST visit. Since we knew our 8th day we'd be heading home, a grueling 9.5 hours in the van... we decided to let them "play their hearts out" the day before. I'm fairly certain that my kids could swing forever, if they were allowed. We also, did a little last walk around the downtown area, and fell in love with the chocolate at Anna's Apothecary. It's REAL DEAL chocolate... the kind that comes with a cold pack, because it would melt if it's not eaten right away. It was amazing, and they give out free samples. My littles gobbled it up, and I am still dreaming about that chocolate, to this day.
Colorado for sure stole our hearts, and it's safe to say, it won't be the last time we visit.
