Fitting In... Denver

So we're here, we've made it to the Denver burbs! Safe and sound and no one was injured and the kids weren't psychologically damaged. The boys really seem to like the new area (probably because there are 15 parks within 3 miles of our house) and Adrian has told me "I really like this new house" about 5x. They can see the mountains from our porch and everyday Adrian's been asking me when we can go play on them. I hope soon, but I feel like we will be unpacking for days... and days! My mom is staying with us for a year thank goodness!! I don't know what I would do without her at times!! 

I think we will fit right in here. The town we are in is definitely larger family oriented and small children friendly. Everywhere I look I see parents our age with a couple elementary kids or babies in toe. Having a large family here seems much more common than the previous areas we've lived.  Even at the airport when we visited last month, we saw all these families getting on planes with 3 and even four kids. We were a little shocked to see parents with more than 2 kids attempt a flight, especially with all wee lil tots.




I really wanted to post some pretty mountain pics, but since we haven't adventured out there yet, and I can't even tell you where my camera is right now, a picture of the famous Dugger clan will have to do. This is how John see's our family after this next baby is born. He cracks me up!! But when you come from an area where I litteral only knew maybe 3 or 4 families with 4 kids or more... it's refreshing to be here where some of the families seem rather big compared to the "norm" whatever that is... like 2.1 kids??

Cool Denver pics coming soon!

I can't wait to see some pictures of the new area.

I'm a mom of three and I love the comments like "are they all yours?" Dude there is only 3, not like I have 20 or so. I don't even consider a family of 5 to be large, so I guess I'm just different.
