Road Trip!

We survived our first official long distance road trip! We left last Friday for Colorado to escape the blazing Texas heat. This is the first time we've driven here with the kids.

Stopping for the night in Amarillo

Since we drove this time we were able to bring along some extra hands, which is especially nice since Daddy could not come with us. Our friend Anne Michal was brave enough to join us on this adventure and she's been such a blessing!

Crossing over into New Mexico we got to see some extinct volcanoes

Castle Rock

When we finally made it to the house we discovered that we were locked out! The garage key pad was dead and we did not have a physical key. So we decided to break in when we noticed that the sliding glass door on the second story patio was cracked open. So we got the steps from the hot tub and put them below the balcony and then Dana hoisted me up but it was higher than it looked and I nearly fell and we were both laughing so hard she nearly dropped me. Finally I was able to get composed and pull myself up or we might have started off with a trip to the ER.

Andrew celebrated with some patriotic flag waving

The kids were so excited to find all the bikes waiting for them

Enjoying the cool weather with some pazzo's pizza on the porch

SO excited to be in Colorado!!!

That horse looks so familiar! Is it possible that it's been around for a LOTTA years?
And breaking and entering, huh? Glad it wasn't your body that was broken! Hope you have a great time!!!!
The Lord knows everything you're going through and is there with you every step of the way. Praying!
Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalms 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
