Welcome to Colorful Colorado!

We have started a new adventure in Colorado. It took us a little over a day to travel from Cedar City, Utah to Aurora, Colorado with the slow Budget truck, plus one stop for me to overcome my carsickness. That day spent traveling and then unloading was one of the longest of my life and I am not looking forward to moving ever again, hopefully by the time we are ready for our next move I will have forgotten how bad it was.

 Knowing Andrew would be starting med school I tried to unpack as fast as possible so I could have help.
 The best little helper. Andrew and I were in separate rooms unpacking and we came out to the living room to find this little guy unpacking cases of canned goods and stacking them into a tower. He was so funny, when his unsteady piles would tumble he would turn to us and say, "oops, sorry guys" then he would stack some more.
 On the 27th of July we were able to attend Andrew's white coat ceremony. Andrew had to be there early so while Alex and I were waiting outside I asked him if he wanted to take some pictures. He was so excited and wanted to take them in front of the waterfall. Little model. I sure love that cute  face!!

 Student Doctor Andrew Alton!!!

So glad we have such good friends to share this adventure with!!!! We love you guys!!
 Rocky Vista sold students and family of the new medical school students tickets to the Rockies game following the white coat ceremony. I was worried that Alex would get bored because baseball games can be so long. He loved the whole experience though. You'll notice in all the pictures I took he can't keep his eyes off the game. He liked watching the people around us and listening to the music, he liked the 7th inning stretch when everyone stands up to stretch and then we sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." I think his favorite was when a dental chain sent people dressed up as a toothbrush, a tube of toothpaste and a thing of floss to have a race around the field.  I loved it too, even though the Rockies were losing 6-0 and the rain was coming down hard, we still stuck it out. We saw the Rockies score 4 runs in one inning. By the bottom of the ninth they were down by two and everyone was rallying for the win, and then we watched the field crew pull out the giant tarp that covers the whole infield. It was after 9:00 so we went home. The game ended up being delayed for one hour and 45 minutes, and the Rockies couldn't pull off the win. I'm so glad we went though it was way fun!!!

That is the start of our new life here in Colorado! We are excited to start this new chapter in our lives, even though we miss being so close to family. I am going to try to keep positive and brave and embrace new experiences and friendships here.
