So- We got the first snowfall of the year. Fun- but too depressing to take a picture of it. The good news is it didn't stick around and the 2 inches have come and gone. But- this weekend we went to the Birthday party for Uncle John and then to the temple with Josh and Val. It is fun to have some family around and fun cousins to play with. Here is also a picture of Ben and his undefeated flag football team. Go 3rd Yr Dental Students!!

The House in the Spring
Hello friends and family -
We are finally jumping on the blogging bandwagon. Hopefully this will make it a little easier to share pictures, short stories and updates from the wonderful land of Colorado. It is starting to cool off, but fortunately still no snow.
Ben is in his 3rd year in dental school and enjoying spending less time in the classroom and more time treating patients. Every day is a new experience - so much to remember. Jen is working at the University of Colorado Hospital in the GI clinic (best colon cleansing money can buy) and still does a ton of hair on the side. Fortunately she is just working at the front desk, checking in patients, etc so she doesn't actually see or perform any rectal exams - whew.
We are loving the outdoors and have gone camping several times - most recently going to Rocky Mountain National Park. We hiked a 10 mile loop that took us to almost 11,000 feet, stopping by at several meadows, high mountain lakes, streams and seeing lots of wildlife. The elk are all over and let you get surprisingly close.
We love visitors so any time you are in the area (or would like to be), even if you are just passing through and need a place to sleep, our door is open to you.
