Casa Bonita's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is......Casa Bonita's!!!!!!

This was one of my most favorite places to come and eat when we went to Colorado EVERY year for vacation! I haven't been there since I was like 12 or 13 so I begged my brother-in-law to make an exception and let us go (not his favorite place to eat!). It literally has not changed a bit since I was there.....except for one minor thing. The swimmer guy is now a young blond haired kid that wears long board shorts. Very different from the Mexican stallion type guy with long hair that sported a speedo that I remember from my childhood! For those that have never been there, you should put it on your list of things to try at least once! Make sure you request to sit near the water, otherwise you miss the good stuff! There are skits and divers and waterfalls and music and all kinds of things to entertain the kids! Zach did great cuz there was always a distraction. Although he came flying out of his highchair during one skit as it has a gorilla in it! My nephew Dawson also had a little gorilla fear when he came flying over our railing and leaped over him....came very close to landing on him. I think I saw Autumn and Treyton jump too as it was totally unexpected and he landed on the railing right next to Autumn. I don't know about everyone else, but I had a great time. Felt like I was 10 again for a bit.....except for the whole having kids thing....that brought me back really quick!

The famous fountain out front. My dad was always so cranky about us getting wet before we went in for dinner. Guess that must have been passed down generationally cuz I kept getting after Zach for the same thing! He though was literally trying to get IN the fountain area.....I NEVER would've even thought of doing that as a child so I'm sure my dad was just overreacting! :)

Everyone being a good sport while I revert back to my childhood! :)

Treyton creating his own fun during dinner....must have been during a break from one of the exciting skits!

Michelle and I pretending we are kids again posing next to where the skits are done....if you can't tell, it's at a scary part with Bad Bart and the Sheriff! :)

Watching the last skit I didn't get to see during dinner of Bad Bart and the Sheriff. That crazy Bart ends up over the edge and in the water every time I have seen it! :) The big kids were acting like it was all lame, yet look at their concentration!

During dinner, my sister thought it would be funny to tell the waiter that it was Autumn's birthday despite it actually being in November. Towards the end of our meal, the mairachi band came to the table and asked for her and then sang. I didn't think to tape it until about half way through. Plus I was laughing so hard I couldn't think of much else! I thought it was hillarious! Not sure Autumn did though. It was a definate favorite among everyone though cuz the rest of the weekend at random times one of us would break into the Autumn birthday song. I have no idea if I will actually be able to load the video cuz I've never tried to do that before!

Can you see the excitement in Autumn???? She was a bit embarrassed, but a great sport about it! Makes me laugh every time I watch it....and now that dang happy birthday part is stuck in my head again!

Thanks for being a good sport Paul....I had a great time!
The last part of the vacation pics is coming soon. Then on to other Zach's dance video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How fun! Casa Bonita was also my favorite place to visit when I was young and our family went to Colorado for summer vacation. I went once in my 20's and it wasn't the same as when I was younger but still brought back old memories!!
