Vacation Day Five

Look at the cuteness that was outside of our hotel room this morning.

Wow!! What a busy day we've had today. We started the day off by going to the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver. It was a neat tour and the tour guide really knew her stuff. I absolutely loved the house and wouldn't mind living there myself. Addison really liked the tour since she's such a fanatic about Titanic.

Once we left there we headed to the Wildlife Experience (or something like that.) It's an interactive museum about animals and the environment. They had 9 holes of putt-putt golf set up that the kids really enjoyed. We also watched and Imax movie about Australia. It was good.

After the animals it was on to the Argo Gold Mine where we learned a little of the mining for gold history, got to tour a small part of the mine and processing facilities, and then tried our hand at panning for gold. The kids didn't want to leave but they were trying to close the place. lol

We had dinner at a local place--The Buffalo Restaurant. Driving through the town (Idaho Springs) it looked like a place we'd like to visit again when we have more time.

On our way out of the area we drove to Buffalo Bill's grave and stopped on the side of the mountain somewhere and took some pictures because it was so pretty.

After that we headed on to Cheyenne where we're spending the night tonight. I paid a little more for tonights hotel than I wanted to because I really wanted to stay here. It's called The Plains Inn (I think) and it's around 100 years old. We're staying in a suite that's actually two rooms instead of the usual where it just means they put a couch in it. lol I think it's great, but the kids think it's haunted. :0)
