Red Rock Canyon


We are enjoying the hiking here in Colorado already, and we have only scratched the surface of all the amazing things to see.  The mountains are such a constant reminder of God's great handiwork.

We've Moved!

We got here on Thursday and tonight will be our 3rd night in the hotel while we continue our house search.  We turned in an application on one today and are hoping it will be our new home!  It is an old unique house in a quaint little neighborhood at the bottom of the front range of the Rockies!  Jake and I feel so blessed to be in Colorado.  We keep saying, "is this real life!?" It feels like a vacation.  Here are a few pictures of our move and our time here so far!

Eda in the empty apartment.  Our stuff was gone on Thursday and we didn't leave until Tuesday.
We were overjoyed to be able to stop at my Uncle Dan and Aunt Loxy's house in Joplin, Mo on our way out.  They spoiled us with their company and a wonderful dinner (complete with red velvet cupcakes for dessert!)  This is us with our cousins!
Eda loved our stop in Joplin too. Not only did she get to play with Hazel, my cousin's dog, she got to be chased and chase Evelyn!  We all felt so refreshed after this great little vacation from the car!

Eda is a great car rider. She fell asleep right on top of our fruit container.

A picture of the rockies as they came into view in the distance. (Please excuse the bugs on our windshield).

We got set up in the hotel then went to find some dinner.  We found Noodles!!

Love this bumper sticker.  I want to tell this to everyone who won't rent to us because of our dog.
