Hey Hey!
Hey, hey, whatta ya say?

What an exciting weekend! Mommy, Daddy, and I decided to go look at some houses down in Castle Rock (number 3 on the map) on Saturday. The builder had 2 model homes, and both were really cool (the Sterling and Stratton, and a floorplan that is brand new and cheaper)! I'd like either one of them. I don't know if Mommy and Daddy are serious about buying a house here, but I sure would like to have more room to play, and a yard for me and Molly.

After looking at the houses, we drove down to Colorado Springs and went to Garden of The Gods. That was very, very cool! We then went to Manitou Springs, which is just down the road from Garden of The Gods. In Manitou Springs we parked next to a park and a creek and walked around town. Then we had dinner at the historic Stagecoach Inn.

After dinner, Daddy thought that it would be a good idea to head west on Hwy 24 and then head north at Woodland Park on Hwy 67 to Deckers and then on to Sedalia. At Sedalia we would then be on Santa Fe which runs north to C-470 and is exit west from us. One problem. The map didn't indicate that Hwy 67 turned to dirt after Deckers. Fortunately, the main road along the South Platte River was still paved and the sign said it would take us to Hwy 285 around Conifer. So Mommy and Daddy decided to go that way. Unfortunately, this road did not stay paved for long, and we soon found ourselves on a dirt road. This dirt road followed the river all the way to the town of South Platte (according to the map). At this point, we headed across the Platte and started following the North Fork of the South Platte down through Foxton. A few miles past Foxton we hit a paved road where Daddy had to figure out which way to go and where the heck we where, as there were no road signs. Fortunately, Daddy was in Indian Guides and Cub Scouts and was able to locate where we were on the map. Now we were finally on our way home. It took over 3 hours to get home. It was a beautiful drive, too bad it was dark.

Pictures soon.
