Hello, my bucket list friends! I hope you have enjoyed reading about my adventures in Colorado! In this post I talk about the day we left Colorado and some of my favorite things I did on this trip. Without any more delay let’s get to it!
Colorado day seven- This was the day we flew back home to California. At the airport I bought two more souvenires before I left this beautiful state. I got another snow globe for my collection and a very cute teddy bear that had pictures printed on it of some of the places we visited while in Colorado. This was a very unique bear from the other ones I have seen at airports before. We had a direct flight home and there was still plenty of day light left when we arrived home. When we landed in California we got Starbucks at the airport before going home.
My highlights! – there were so many amazing things that we go to see and do in Colorado but I decided to put together a list of my five favorites it was a hard decision to make but here it is!
Hello, my bucket list friends!! It’s time for another post about my fun filled vacation to Colorado! In this post we continue our adventures outside of Denver. We explore some caves and ride a train plus a lot more. Let’s get to it.
Colorado day five – on the 5th day of our Colorado vacation we went on a drive to a very fun and interesting place called Glenwood Caverns adventure park! Our main reason for going here was to take a tour of the caves. There are two different caves you can tour here and they are both truly amazing. These caves are so beautiful and interesting. I really enjoyed looking at the caves. If you are ever near this place it is definitely worth checking out. There are also some rides here but we didn’t go on them. The way up to this amusement park is also a lot of fun because you take a gondola to the top of the mountain. I also went to the gift shop here. When we were ready to leave we had a little trouble because of winds we couldn’t take the gondola back down. So we had to wait a little bit. While waiting I got some ice cream. After a little bit of a wait it was time to ride the gondola back down the mountain and drive to out next adventure. We stopped at Starbucks on the way to see something really fun. The next thing I’m gonna tell you about became one of my favorite things I did in Colorado. My mom and I went to visit Isak Heartstone. Isak is a very large and very cute troll sculpture made from wood. Isak lives at the end of his own trail in Breckenridge Colorado. I had so much fun going to see this impressive sculpture. I just love the pictures I took there. This sculpture is so cute and impressive. I highly recommend going to see Isak Heartstone if you are ever in Breckenridge.
Colorado day six – this was our last full day in Colorado. Our adventure for this day was to ride the Cog railway up to Pikes Peak. Pikes Peak is a very well known attraction in Colorado you can drive or even hike there but for us the train seemed like the best option. It takes over an hour for the tain the get to Pikes Peak but it is worth it. There are some beautiful views from the train on the way up. There is a gift shop at the train station but I used the pressed penny machine at the station to make souvenires. Once we got up to Pikes Peak there was a good amount of snow up there. The views here are pretty amazing. However be prepared because there is a chance of altitude sickness when visiting Pikes Peak. There are some displays inside here as well as a gift shop where I got some postcards that you can color. I’m glad we went to vist Pikes Peak I got some wonderful pictures here. It was a great way to spend the last full day of vacation.
Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for the second post about my adventures in Colorado. In this post I go to an art museum and even create my own art! Plus a little bit of adrenaline rush! I’m super excited to write all about it. So let’s get to it!
Colorado adventure day three – On this day I crossed off a bucket list item by visiting the Denver art museum. We arrived at the museum a little while before it opened. That was actually a good thing because there were some great things to see outside of the museum. My favorite outside art piece was a large broom and dust pan sculpture. I love the picture that I took by the sculpture. There were also these rocking lawn chairs that played music as they rocked. Soon it was time to go inside the museum. This museum is huge with so many things to see. I enjoyed looking at photographs,paintings and more. My favorite part of the museum was an area where you could make your own art. After looking at so many inspiring pieces of art I was in a creative mood. I made two collages. I loved using paper that had patterns on it. For one of my art pieces I made a beautiful collage of patterns. the other collage I made was inspired by ice cream. If I’m ever back in Denver I want to go to the art museum again because there is so much to see. After the art museum we took a walk and we quickly visted the Colorado state capital building. It is a very beautiful building and I got some good pictures there. After that we kept walking because we had a tour scheduled at the Molly Brown house museum. We got a little lost on our way there. However,we did make it on time for our self-guided tour. There were so many interesting things to see there. There is something special about seeing history frozen in time as you explore the house. I loved the swing outside the house I took some pictures of my mom and I on the swing. I love the wooden spinning top thst I got at the gift shop there. Later that day we went to get the rental car because our other adventures were going to be outside of Denver. Before we went to pick up our car we went to eat at Ihop. We were very hungry after a long day full of adventure I won’t get in to all the stressful details here but we ened up having to go to another rental car place then the one we had reserved a car at because there were some problems picking the car up. However it all worked out and we got a great car for our adventures. When we got to the hotel, I went swimming again. It was a busy but mostly fun vacation day.
Colorado day four – On this day we took a drive to see some famous Colorado attractions. Our first stop was Garden of the gods. This park is known for it’s rock formations. We took a trolly tour because we didn’t have much time. We went to the visitor center to sign up for the tour. We had some time before we went on the tour so we checked out the visitors center,got hot drinks and visted the gift shop. The trolly tour allowed us to see a lot of the rock formations. With the limited time we had it was the perfect way for us to be able to see the park without spending a lot of time there. Our second activity for the day was to go see the Royal Gorge Bridge. The bridge is located in an amusement park. So in addition to walking across this very amazing bridge we also saw a bird show, went to a petting zoo, and road a zip line across the Gorge. The zip line was fun but kind of scary. However it was definitely worth it because the views were beyond beautiful when I wasn’t closing my eyes that is! I also got to go on a carousel here. It was a small Carousel and adults where not allowed on the horses however I was able to ride on the bench and take pictures with the Carousel horses. On the way out we stopped by the gift shop. On the way back I went to Taco Bell for dinner. Taco Bell is one of my favorite fast food places. This was a really fun day!
Thank you for reading about my vacation fun in Colorado!
Hello,my bucket list friends! I recently got back home from an adventure filled vacation to Colorado! I have so much to write about. Here we go!
Colorado day one – The first day of this vacation was similar to a lot of other first days of vacation,meaning that there was an airplane ride and then an Uber ride to the hotel. The big highlight of day one was going swimming in the hotel pool. I love going swimming. I wish I got to go more often. It was a good way to start my vacation.
Colorado day two – On day two I did one of my favorite things. I went to the zoo! I just have to say that the Denver zoo is a lot of fun!I saw so many different kinds of animals including elephant, lions, flamingos,Zebras, raccoons and more! I also got to ride a train and a carousel. The Carousel had so many different animals on it. There was also a lion made out of Legos that was really interesting to see. One of my favorite animals that I saw there was the okapi. They are very cute and I love that we got to get pretty close to them at the zoo. I ended my zoo adventure by getting some souvenires at the gift shop. At the gift shop I got a new snow globe for my collection along with some other items. I also got a souvenire cup with my lunch. After a fun time at the zoo we took an Uber to downtown Denver. Our first stop was the Denver selfie museum! I love going to places like this. I’ve been to two other places like this before and I loved them both. I was super excited to take some fun photos at this museum and let me tell you something this place did not disappoint! There were so many fun backgrounds and props that looked amazing in pictures. I loved the fuzzy purple background that had old fashion phones attached to it. I also loved the smiley face background and the bubblegum background that was full of candy machines that had yellow gumballs in them. After taking a lot of fun pictures we walked to a souvenire store. I got some great things there including another snow globe,a plush moose,post cards,key chains and more! It was a day full of fun and adventure!

Hello, my bucket list friends!! This is one of thoes weekend wrap up posts but it’s a little different because it was a four day weekend for me. The big highlight of my weekend was a day trip to Big Sur on Sunday but I also went to Savers, Target and Starbucks. I’m excited to tell you all about it so, let’s get to it!
Friday- I know I always start my weekend posts with Friday after work but in this case I had the whole day off. I went to Starbucks and the doctor’s office for a work physical but the big highlight of the day was going to Savers! I had a coupon for clothes and accessories. I got some shirts and a new swim top. I also two Equestria Girl dolls, Two Disneyland lanyards and some TY Beanie Babies. I also went on a walk over to where this pony lives and we gave him carrots. It was a good start to my four days off!
Saturday- on Saturday I went to Target after going to Starbucks of course. At Target my main goal was to get bath bombs. I got a jar of bath bombs that all had prizes in them. I also got another bath bomb that lights up! Some of the other things I got at Target include sunglasses, socks and fan that has bubbles with it. The night I took a bath with bath bombs of course.
Sunday- Sunday was a day filled with adventure. My mom and I went on a day trip to Big Sur. We started our day by taking a tour of the Point Sur light Station. It was very windy but also very beautiful. It was a very interesting tour and yes, they had a gift shop. I got some cool souvenires there including a bookmark and a keychain. Other adventures include going to see McWay falls and a quick vist to Phifer Big Sur state park. We also went on this walk that a had a beautiful view of the ocean. The are so many beautiful things to see in the Big Sur area but it does get very crowded. However I would recommend exploring this area.
Monday- On the fourth day of my four day weekend, I got to spend the day with my friend and yes we went to Starbucks and we also went to one of our favorite restaurants!
