(I wrote this whole post on my phone, so the photos are probably going to end up being stacked and weird, instead of in nice little collages. Sorry about that.)
Alrighty! Like I said this morning, I ended up going to Colorado with my dad! He was in Illinois taking care of some stuff and stopped by my house last night on his way back home. He asked me if I was going with him, and obviously I did! 😊
So we left my house this morning a little before 10 am, after making sure all of the stuff on his trailer was secure. Haha and of course I’m repping all of my Honey Stinger gear. 😉 I’ve also got some waffles packed for any running/hiking/adventuring that we end up doing.
So he drove for a while, stopped to get gas, saw a herd of zebras at one point (I’m not even kidding! It was crazy seeing a bunch of zebras in the middle of nowhere Kansas is) and we decided we were going to stop at Toto’s Tacos and a Wizard of Oz museum that we had tried to go to last time we went to Colorado together, but both were closed. It took us about an hour to get there, but we finally got our Toto’s Tacos and got to wander around the museum for a while.
^^ That is a guaco taco. It had so much guacamole on it. It was amazing!
After we had our full of the Wizard of Oz museum, we went to the historic Beecher Bible and Rifle Church. Haha we actually went there the last time we made this trip together, but it’s a cool church so we went back again. 😄
After that we did more driving. Well, my dad did all of the driving. I’m just along for the ride haha, but in all fairness, he’s driving a company truck so I can’t drive it. We spent a few hours looking at the rural scenery and pointing out neat stuff to each other. But around 4 ish we had to stop at a gas station so my dad could nap for a bit. We were both pretty tired at that point (although I didn’t nap haha). Me because riding in a car makes me super tired, and him because he did a lot of work in Illinois. But we were back on the road around 5 pm.
Around 6:40 we stopped in Wakeeney (I probably spelled that wrong) Kansas to get gas, snacks, and to go to a park with an old plane in it. Haha last time my dad and I made this trip together he made me get in it, so obviously I had to do it again. 😉 Yeah, I definitely wasn’t supposed to be climbing in it haha.
After that little adventure we decided we were going to take the scenic route to my dad’s apartment. It added about an extra hour to the trip, and it was already pretty dark, but neither of us were in a hurry to get anywhere. 😄
After we stopped there we only stopped one more time for gas. Other than that we just continued onto Longmont Colorado. We finally got there at about 11:40 pm (12:40 pm in central time, which is the time zone we started the day in haha), ate a little bit, talked to my mom and brother,and now we’re getting ready for bed! I’m very ready for bed haha.
