Nancy Lewis Park, Colorado Springs

This is one of the parks that my kids love. They call it the parks with ducks as there are lots of ducks living and nesting in this place. When we visited here, the play area was being renovated so we just headed home after walking few minutes near the pond. Oh by the way, the name of this park is Nancy Lewis Park which is located near Filmore Street here in Colorado Springs.

On the boarders – Mexican grill – Powers Blvd Colorado Springs

Last Tuesday, my friend from Pueblo visited me here in springs and she treated me a free meal at On the Boarders – Mexican Grill located in Powers Boulevard. It’s my first time in there and I love their iced tea. The foods were okay. And I am so grateful that for the freebies and the blessings. It’s a fun day!

Stay-cation

Who doesn’t want to have an adventure and vacation with the whole family? I think everyone loves to have family adventures and vacations out somewhere. For me, I just spread this tent in the yard and stayed in here while watching my kids had a swim in their small kiddy pool. Having a vacation at home is also fun and I call it stay-cation. It’s also a great savings!

Anyway, I am a home buddy but it doesn’t mean I don’t love adventures and vacations every now and then. Oh well, life is still good with stay-cation.

Denver Art Museum Part 1

My kids, my friend Glen and I visited Denver Art Museum this year. We had fun in there even if we were late and we weren’t able to join the guided tour. It’s our first time to visit that place and the parking was crazy coz we parked at the side of the road in which I need to get out after an hour to put another hour on the parking meter. That time we didn’t know where we will park and we didn’t know about parking garage. Anyway, these were some of our photos.

Riding In Style

Whether it’s for a special occasion, such as a prom or a wedding, or you simply want to travel through the city in style, consider limo services Harrisburg PA companies offer to customers. You will need to set up a time for the driver to pick you up and give the information about where you want to go before the driver arrives. There are several advantages of being in a limo instead of driving your own car that are fun for all involved.

If there is a large group of people who are going to one location, it’s sometimes more affordable to rent a limo instead of driving separate cars. You will be able to arrive at the same time, and if there is drinking involved, then you have a designated driver so that everyone will have a safe time. It’s a convenient method of traveling. There are often snacks and drinks in the limo with the varieties depending on the age of the people using the service. You can reserve a limo for a group of children to celebrate a birthday or special event with soda and candy to enjoy or have wine and caviar for a wedding party.

Making sure you arrive at your destination can sometimes be difficult if you don’t have a car or if you don’t have room in your car to take everyone with you. A limo has plenty of comfortable space in the back, and you have access to air and heat. Some limos have a sunroof so that you can have a little fun while traveling through town. A limo can be used to take a group to a sporting event, a concert or even to a vacation destination. It offers a way for family and friends to be together so that everyone can enjoy the experience instead of driving in separate cars, wondering when others will arrive. Another advantage is that you don’t have to drive. Everyone in the car can sit back and take in the scenery while listening to music or just talking with one another while on the road.

Successful journey of over 2k Miles – #ManitouIncline – Manitou Springs Colorado

June 17, 2015 my friend and I decided to hike at Manitou Incline Colorado which has over 2k steps. We went there like almost 10am. When we reached we were having a hard time finding a parking lot. We had to turn twice in that area just to wait for a vacant pay parking. When we had our turned, we were one of the happy hikers. We started hiking at around 11:30am and we finished around 3:30pm going the back home.

It was like a torture for us coz we were first timer. There were stairs wherein we have to almost crawl in going up just to reach the top of the trail. First timers in hiking trail like this would be having a hard time and lots of muscle spasms afterwards. But for the regular hikers, it would be easy for them. There was even one man, maybe he was trying to lose weight as he was running back and forth on the trail and it’s just easy for him.

Given the chance, I will hike in this Manitou Incline again but I have to be early like before 6am so that I can find a good parking area and I need to finish early. But I don’t want to go down at the back portion as it was too long in there. If I will have to get down from there, I need to run fast so as to reach the bottom of the mountain quick. With my 2nd hike there, I think I will try to go down on the stairs again. Though it’s a bit steep but I know I can as I am used to walking and hiking the mountains when I was younger. And that would be easy for me.

To sum up, I loved the hike as it is like I am connecting with God’s nature which is away from all of the high technology of the modern world. It was just refreshing! Thanks God it was a successful journey of over 2k miles.

 Thanks God, we are able to find a parking space after turning around the 2nd time.

 Start of the hike

 Hiking up!  Keep moving forward!  No going up unless you reached the top of Manitou Incline (over 2k steps).

 Reaching the top of the incline was so refreshing!

Reaching the top of #ManitouIncline Colorado in Manitou Springs – more than 2k steps!

Staying at Miami airport hotel

I love hanging out in Miami. It’s hot town for a twenty something. It can be that glorious time after college where you actually have a job that allows you to spend some money, but it’s before getting married and having kids. Like I said, a glorious time. Quite often, and much welcomed, the company that I work for sends us to Miami which is a large market for the products that we sell. As you can guess there are other twenty something so the minute we hit Miami it can begin to get a little crazy pretty quickly. We’re always staying at Miami airport hotel just for the convenience factor but the place that we stay is centrally located and it doesn’t matter where you put us we’re gong to make it a good time.

This time as we walked through the airport we could see that the Miami airport customs was a zoo so we quickly rerouted our group quickly to the cab stand and off to our hotel. I don’t know what the deal is with Miami but wow, this airport can get crazy. Anyways the place that we usually stay at is a pretty cool place called Executive Fantasy Hotel. Apparently it’s a chain and they have got it going on for getting you in the mood to have a good time. We just have to remember that this is a business trip and we’ve got to actually get some work done that doesn’t consist of south beach. It will be tough but I think I’ll manage.
