After worship we headed to the house to change clothes and then grab some lunch. We selected Larkburger after reading about them online last night. Man, was that a good choice! We were able to order our burgers in a beautiful lettuce wrap and the fries - oh the fries! They were skinny and coated in sea salt. I might have eaten a full pound of them if they have been in front of me, and I don't even really care for french fries all that much if they're not sweet potato fries.
Once we made our way back down to a nice open area, the girls and Don took off their shoes and waded in the water a bit, but not for too long because the water was super cold. We rested for a little while and the girls danced around and played.
Hiking lasted about 2 hours before we were back at the cottage. Rain was starting to move into the area and the thunder was coaxing us down pretty quickly. We walked down the road a little ways after resting to eat at The Wines of Colorado restaurant. I had a bison burger and Nick chose the mahi mahi tacos. It was a pretty good meal, but the service was not all that great. It started pouring while we were eating so Nick had to run back up to the house to get the car and come back for us all.
To say that we are all worn out tonight is an understatement. Tomorrow is Olivia's 6th birthday, so we are spending the day at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. I can't wait! It's my very favorite zoo.
