We got back from Colorado on Sunday night. We had a great time!
The bulk of our vacation was spent resting, eating, sleeping, playing games, watching football, watching movies, eating, a little shopping…and, did I mention eating?
It was great to just all be together and have no where to go and nothing we needed to do. It forced us to relax.
We even got some snow, which was a pleasant surprise. At a couple points on Sunday, we thought that it might effect/delay our flight but it didn’t. It’s so funny to be from Oregon (where people freak out when it snows) to living in California (where people have never seen snow) to visiting Colorado (where it’s a way of life). For example, Josh’s parents don’t have snow tires or all-wheel drive on their car, but that didn’t stop us from driving 45 minutes to church in it without a thought. In Oregon, no one would go out and if they did, they would bust out their subarus and snow tires with chains attached. (It IS different in Oregon though b/c there’s always the fear of black ice which is really dangerous and I’m a total wuss in the snow, myself). Just had to disclaim that.
*For those of you who don’t know. Shortly after Josh’s parents moved to Colorado in the summer of 07, their BRAND NEW house burnt down. The interior was done for but enough of the base survived that they pretty much re-built and re-did everything in the house. Last Christmas we stayed together in the apartment they were living in. This year we got to stay in the house. It’s beautiful and it was such a blessing to see how much God has provided.
Well, enough words, here are some pictures:
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
