The North Pole

Did you know if you live in Colorado Springs, you can go to the North Pole anytime you want? That's because this North Pole sits at the base of Pikes Peak, and it is open year round.

On Sunday after church we were headed up Pikes Peak for a picnic, but the road was closed for a bike race. So we decided to go to the North Pole, and it did not disappoint. I can't believe we have lived here all these years and never gone! The kids LOVED it!!!

This was one of our favorite rides ~ the giant twisty peppermint slide!

After all that crazy fun we had to take an ice cream break!

I can't believe that you had never gone to the North Pole! We used to take Braedon there at least several times a year. It is a great place to spend the day with little ones. Even before we had Braedon I used to take Tucker the little guy we kept all the time. It is really fun at Christmas. Its the best place to get those pictures made with Santa! Glad you enjoyed your time there! Bethany
