12 hr drive across 3 states, check! Living in a hotel with 2 kids for 3 days, check! Moving into a house by yourself with those 2 children, check! 3 days of endless amounts of boxes, check! Finally getting settled, ch--well kind of! As you can tell, we made it to Colorado!!! The drive went great and it was beautiful! The move went smoothly and we are slowly learning the backroads of Colorado Springs, I at least know where all the major shopping is...that's all that counts anyway. The final piece to this crazy puzzle was added on Sunday, Dave came home!!! The kids were so excited to see him and haven't let him out of their site, I am no longer the favorite, or was I ever? It's been a whirlwind since he got in but we are taking it all in stride. Today we visited the Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak! Both were awesome! The Garden is rock formations that are huge and have been around for a while, sorry we didn't stop at the visitor center so I have no "good" info. You can google it though! LOL! Afterwards, I somehow talked Dave into driving up to the summit of Pike's Peak. What a long drive(1 hour!) but SO breathtaking! Did you know the view from Pike's Peak inspired the song, "America the Beautiful?" I know why now! When we started our climb it was 63 degrees, by the time we reached the summit it was 32 degrees! OMG! We could also feel the effects of being up that high, short of breath, dizzy, really cold! I felt like I had hiked up the mountain when we were walking around! Crazy! Just thought I would let you guys know we are all alive, just super busy and enjoying our family time with Dave before he is away again. Hope you enjoyed the pic overload!
