Fun in Boulder!

We went to the Butterfly Pavilion today and it was really cool! There were lots of cool things to see! The butterflies we beautiful and the kids had a blast! It really was a good time and pretty cheap too ;) Here are some pictures to show what we saw!

Meet Rosie! I was really surprised with how good my kids were about holding this tarantula. Faith was a little unsure but she did real good. I did NOT hold Rosie :)

Donette came to visit us...our first visitor! We went for a drive through Boulder Canyon and it was beautiful!

First snow in Colorado

~*We've already had the first snow of the season! It snowed about 5" on Wednesday and the kids were super excited! They waited for dad to come home from work so that we could go play in the snow! It was way cold that day but we all bundled up and headed to the little park down the street. Kris thought it was fun to throw snowballs at the kids as they went down the slide and the kids thought it was so funny! It was a good day!

Ok so lots has happened this crazy year...Lots of vacations and other things which I'll have to post later on because all those pics are on our computer in storage. Yes, that's right storage! We just recently moved to Boulder Colorado and are loving every minute of it. I'll share the story of how we got here. It all started about 2 years ago when Kris and I had a talk about not being happy in Eagar. It just randomly got brought up and we were both feeling the same way and were on the same page about looking for a new adventure in Colorado. Kris aplied for many jobs...some in Colorado springs, one in Maine...yes Maine! One in Oregon and of course Boulder. He had an oppertunity beck in February at this same plant that fell through but was told that they would be having a supervisor job in a few months and to keep in touch. Yeah a supervisor job...really? We were not thinking that it would happen. Then in July Kris got an email from the company saying that the supervisor job was listed and that they wanted him to apply. So, he did and sure enough he got the job and off we were to Boulder! We are still not settled in a home just yet but we are so happy to be here and are looking forward to our new adventures! Here are some pictures of our first family hike...
