    Going to visit my daughter. Would like to meet up with any QB members in the area if possible. Was 'chatting' with another member and we're talking about meeting in Woodland Park on Friday, July 16. Anyone else want to meet?

    I grew up in Colorado Springs. There are some lovely LQSs there! (I live about an hour north of Colorado Springs now, but am down there a bunch because my in-laws live there.) There are some beautiful places to visit, such as Garden of the Gods. Enjoy!

    You're right. Garden of the Gods is beautiful. The church at the Air Force Academy is another 'must' to visit. Visited the Zoo - that was so much fun, a zoo in the mountain top. There are some quaint shops in Manitou Springs, a fun place to just walk and taste all the different waters. There is so much to do there and in the surrounding area.

    I've been to Ruth's Stitchery and High Country Quilts. Great shops.

    Would be fun if you could join us on the 16th.

    Unfortunately, my SIL will be out of town, or I could have dropped my kids off for the day. My brother and she lives near Woodland Park. I might see if my MIL will watch them. I had planned on asking her to watch them so I could go to the Rocky Mountain Sewing Expo the week before this date, so I will have to see. :-)

    I do so glad I seen this before I got my plane tickets. Was going back home on the 15th but will stay a couple days longer. Going out on the 10th to visit my daughter and grandkids. Hope to see you there.

    WOO HOO - this is so funny - we have to go 1600+ hundred miles and we'll finally get to meet. And we don't live that far from each other here in Michigan. I love it. Looking forward to it. I'm leaving on the 12th.

    Is 11:00 or noon good for everyone? We could meet at the Nuts and Bolts Shop? and after that we could go for lunch? Or eat first. I'm open for time and suggestions.

    Quiltgranny - can you suggest a place to eat? Or is there a better place to meet?

    Grandma's Kitchen has some of the best food in town, can make room for large groups and treats us like gold. They serve a variety of breakfast items as well as lunch, too. Another option is the Ute Inn (the dining side). They have some really awesome menu items ranging from breakfast all day to the best Philly Beef Steak sandwich I've ever had. They serve crab, too. They tend to be less crowded, too. The Circle H Smokehouse has the best BBQ'd everything, but only serves breakfast til 11:15. They have great service, too. There's also the Hungry Bear, IF you can find a parking spot. Parking isn't so much an issue at Grandma's, pulblic parking is behind the Ute and sometimes is across the street at the Smokehouse if you didn't there ahead of the lunch crowd. Let's take a vote.

    Meeting at 11:00 to eat before going to Nuts makes the most sense. That way, we're getting served before the crowds come and don't have to shop at Nuts on an empty stomach.

    :lol:

    The Smokehouse is located just across the street from Nuts. They might even let us park in the Nuts lot first, then we could just walk over to the Smokehouse eat and walk back to Nuts. The staff at the Smokehouse treat us like gold, too. They wouldn't mind if we lingered as long as we wanted to, either. They have a wonderful salad bar, too - something lacking in the other places I mentioned. They even serve BBQ Buffalo if you're in the mood. Mighty good say my DH.

    Those are my thoughts, what do the rest of your girls think?

    How I wish I could fly out there and join all of you! I absolutely love Colorado Springs.

    My son went to the Air Force Academy and I would visit at least twice a year to see him and all the wonderful places I wanted to see. Last time I was there in 2008, I couldn't believe the growth compared to 2002. It still beckons to me and I may just move out there someday.

    The smokehouse is fine with me. Where is the Nuts located at? They have opened since I left CO. and I am sure things have changed in the last 4 years.
