What A Perfect Unplanned Day

Our "day in the mountains” plan was cancelled on Monday when we woke up with two boys who weren’t feeling to good.  But we figured we could still try to have some easier fun with our little darlings.  So we set out for a nice miniature golf course.  However, an adventure was waiting for us. We loaded up the car with happy children and a cooler full of hot dog goodies to cook along the way.  
Not far from our house we began to see signs that an Alpaca farm was open to visitors, so we stopped there for a while 

 The children loved feeding the Algerian Goats
 The above is a two week old baby alpaca!
 Isn’t this a beautiful chicken...I told Steve that I want one and he said he knew that was coming and then grumbling lovingly that the stupid thing didn’t lay eggs. LOL

 After our fun at the farm, we headed west to see something that I have always wanted to see, but never have in the 20 some odd years that I have lived here...
 The United States Air Force Academy Chapel!!!

 It was so beautiful.

Finally, sometime in the late afternoon we made it to the miniature golf course.
 After some instructions and help from daddy, the children were ready to be divided between Team Mommy and Team Daddy.

 Some time after 6:00, we drove back up the drive way that we had left earlier that morning with children ready for the hot dog roast that never happened because all the park grills were closed for fire ban reasons.  (We did enjoy a taco for lunch to hold them over).  
Goodness!!!! We ended up having a very long and fun day!  And our little darlings were READY for bed.  It was a perfect unplanned day!


  1. Isn't it fun when those "unplanned days" end up being more fun than what we had planned?
    Looks like a delightful day!

  2. What a nice day you had. Unplanned ones always seem to be the best.

    And I am with you. I saw one of those chickens at a fair once, and have wanted one ever since. I think, maybe they are called Polish hens...but I could be remembering wrong. They are so cute, though!

  3. What a great day! Soooo blessed!!!
