Don't worry I'm not going to document everyday that we live here in Colorado. I just don't want my posts to be super long. On Sunday we kept unpacking (it really is never ending) and then drove over to Canon City to see the Royal Gorge Bridge. It's this bridge that is suspended over a river that you can walk or drive across. Of course, being the new touristy residents we are, we didn't realize that it would cost $23 a person to walk across! Insane! We walked to the overlook and took pictures instead.
(Click on the picture to enlarge.) And if you are crazy, you can swing over it.
Don't we have lovely children?! Grandma & Grandpa Calderwood still seem to think so.
On Monday we went for a 10 minute drive over to Garden of the Gods. It's like this mini Moab right on the mountain.
This picture is the backside of "kissing camels".
This is what we'll be doing this summer. Rockclimbing! We were only able to go once while living in Maryland. We have some good friends moving to the Springs in a few weeks that love to rock climb too. Yay!
Tucker is starting young!
So that's about it. There really is tons more I could post about, like the new table we bought (our first piece of furniture since we've been married that we've actually purchased), the details of the house (pictures will come later I promise), how everyone but me has been sick with the flu since moving here (I'm crossing my fingers), how we received a new phone number only to find out that someone else has it too, our A/C doesn't work and it's been 80 degrees, Aubrey has fallen down the stairs 3 times (we really need to buy a gate), we drove to 5 grocery stores with our GPS guiding us before we found one that isn't out of business (what the heck), we've had dinner at a member of the stake presidency's house (good friends parents), we drove to the Denver airport and tried to find the temple, we saw the AirForce Thunderbirds fly overhead and so on!
We are loving Colorado Springs and are happy we've moved here. If you ever want to come visit we'll have plenty to show you! Look for our updated address and phone number email coming soon to your Inbox. If you don't receive one, it's probably because I don't have your email. Just leave me a comment and I'll forward it on to you.
