The North Pole

On Tuesday we got together with some family and went to a children's amusement park here just outside of Colorado Springs called the North Pole. It was a lot of fun. Our niece and nephews were there as well and it was fun to watch them take on all the rides.

Guess who else went on the rides? Not me of course. I was on the restricted list. Although, I was all for it. What was the worse thing that could happen? I would go into labor??? Okay!!!

Ashton went on 3 rides. He's 15 months can you believe they let him on? Well, it was a children's amusement park. Taylor had to accompany Ashton on all rides of course. In the cart in front of Taylor and Ashton is Chrystalee, Landon, and Ryleigh.

Ashton is so little it's hard to see him in the seat.

At this point it is really spinning fast and Ashton is hanging onto his daddy.

This was a giant candy cane slide

Beep Beep! Bad timing of catching Taylor waving

We were at the park for 5 hours and this is Ashton without a nap. He was pretty tired

After the park, he couldn't resist

Later that evening we went to try out the Mexican food here which isn't as good as in Arizona, but we let Ashton color for the first time and he loved it!
