You already know Rick’s fondness for seafood buffets, but I prefer breakfast buffets. Rick and I went to Maui for our honeymoon and they had THE BEST breakfast buffet ever. We thought that we would check out the Cheyenne Mountain Resort’s version. I love that I don’t have to chose between egg or sweet. I can endulge my love of every breakfast choice. Their brunch was pretty awesome and we even let Noah have a sip or two of juice which I think he enjoyed.
Sand Is Quite The Developmental Helper
We spent the afternoon enjoying our resort. We took Noah back to the pool and lake. Today we actually got in the water of the lake. Lakes are a lot different than pools, we didn’t last long in that water.
I am fairly certain that there is going to be a sandbox in our backyard as Noah really enjoys the sand. Not only that but it helped him reach a new sitting record! He was a rockstar on the beach. If we are able to keep him entertained with something in front of him, he sits so much longer and sand did just the trick.
Honey Mustard Meets Mexican
Rick and I ventured outside of the hotel for dinner tonight. The concierge had recommended a Mexican place, Carlos Miguels, that was not too far away. Rick always wants to know what are the most popular dishes when we are a somewhere new, which is a great way to figure out what to choose. I tried their Honey Mustard Burrito thanks to their suggestion. It tasted just like how it is described, a burrito with a honey mustard sauce. It was good, but not exactly my favorite meal. The chips, salsa, and bean dip (better known as refried beans) made up for it.
It was well worth the short drive and only $11/person cost. They recommend you go at night, which at first seemed silly as you are going to look at a waterfall. How could you see a waterfall at nigh right?? Well, this one has multicolor lights illuminating the seven different falls.
It is actually one waterfall with seven drop points, hence the name. I was totally expecting seven seperate waterfalls, so I am giving you fair warning.
It was way cooler than I was expecting from the description and pictures. You first take an elevator and are able to see the entire waterfall from the opposite mountain. It was a great show of different lights including all colors of the rainbow. Sometimes the entire waterfall is one color and other times the colors are flowing from one section to the next. It was impressive, and I am so glad we decided to come.
You can then take the 224 steps to view the waterfall up close and personal…if you can catch your breath. I think that I should get bonus points for hiking up the stairs with Noah strapped to me. It may be the best stair stepper ever. I was sure I was going to be sore (and I was!).
For those of you who find the hike easy, please don’t comment below, let me relish in the fact that I did it and was quite proud of myself. This was probably my favorite day of the Colorado Springs vacation. It included all the things I enjoy, good food, relaxation, the outdoors and my two favorite boys.
What is the most difficult physical thing you have done on vacation?
