Colorado Bubbles

I'm back up and running!

I have had internet for about a week now, and I have tried to get back into commenting and reading other blogs. Otherwise, I'm still quite busy putting the house together and probably will be for some time.


I am very lucky that I had not one, but two, uncles living along our Utah-Michigan driving route. And in perfect spots, too.

Stop number one was just outside of Denver--just about an 8 hour drive for us from Cedar City.

When we got there, my aunt had bubbles ready for the stir-crazy, stuck-in-the-car-all-day girls, and they had a wonderful time blowing them and running around in the yard in general. Once all the wiggles were out, we had a lovely pasta dinner, bubble baths and great conversation over brownies after the kiddos were abed.

A fabulous end to the first of four long driving days, I say!

  9. So, you've ARRIVED!! Let the adventure - er - CONTINUE!!

    Love me some bubbles, as long as they're outside and not, hypothetically, upside down and leaking in a box on my living room rug.

  13. Glad you're back! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your new home, but I know that things will be crazy for a while. (I guess things are always a little crazy.)

    We were able to stop at my brother's house on our way to Canada when we went. It is so nice to be able to stay with family--especially when you rarely get to see them.

    We just got back from a trip to Eastern Oregon from SLC. After 8 hours in the car with the kids on Friday and then another 7 hours in the car today (Sunday), I'm going crazy too!

    I can't imagine 4 whole days of that! thank goodness for good family I guess. You must be 'plum wore out!'
