DENVER... our next adventure!!

In three weeks we will be moving our family across the country to Colorado. We've been in Ohio now for almost 3 years and before Ohio it was Tampa for almost 7 years. Coming back to Ohio after Florida has always been a temporary move until we knew where the next phase of our lives would take us. We've had 3 wonderful years catching up with our Ohio families and old friends and we've been very fortunate to have this time with all of them!! We will miss everyone dearly!  This decision was not an easy one, but most huge life changing decisions aren't simple or easy. Thank goodness for technology... skype, facetime, airplanes and summer vacations!

 We're excited to see what this next year has in store for us. We can't think of a more interesting place to explore the outdoors, have fun and enjoy our basketball team of boys :)
The look on their faces when they see these mountains for the first time will most definitely be priceless.

Here's the story of our life for the next 3 weeks. Now... the hard work begins, a huge moving sale, organizing, sorting, packing, cleaning and just tons to get done!

Fun stuff, huh!?! The adventure starts way before we even leave Ohio. We'll be living out of our suitcases for a week, staying at my aunts for 5 days, driving 1,400 miles and staying in 3 different hotels along the way... all with 3 little ones (and 20 wks prego) is going to be quite a trip of a trip for sure! We will have our work cut out when we finally get settled. I'm pretty sure everyones schedules will be totally rocked and non existant with the lack of routine, familiarity and then the 2 hour time zone change. Bring it on... I think, no I know, no I think I'll be ready. We'll see :)

Wishing you SAFE travels and letting you know I'm uber jealous! Denver is a fun place!
We moved during my 2nd trimester and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought, granted I didn't have any little ones in tow (well if you don't count my 2 dogs and a lizard)...
Let me know how I can pray for you during these crazy days!

Please tell me how it is! We live in FL, and my husband wants to up and move after the first of the year. We are thinking Northern Colorado or Wyoming! Have fun packing and be safe during your move!
