Videos from Day One

These arae some videos from day one. For those of you who I have receive these blog posts in your e-mails be sure to visit the blog to watch the videos if they don't come through in the e-mail.

This first video is of us finally getting out of town. We were excited!!!

Momma, Daddy and John Ryan...this video is for you. Can you guess where we are by our song? We REALLY were sad that you guys weren't with us. Yes, we are making new memoires on our own but it sure doesn't replace the old ones. And we have A LOT of old memories driving these roads with you guys.

This video is of us crossing into Colorado.....I thought I would burst with joy! I LOVE COLORADO! I didn't even care that it was night time and I couldn't see the mountains....I was just happy to be there. There is just something in the air there I tell ya...it's magical!
The only sad part was that I realized it was the first time I had been to Colorado without my parents...after 27 years of traveling to Colorado almost EVERY year it's pretty crazy that I had never been there without them. But, don't worry we are learning how to have fun without our families...but it sure is hard.......so on day two I will share the new memories Tristan and I made together as our own little family unit. Bethany, don't read into that! : )

P.S. Today is Bethany and John Ryan's San Angelo Shower....and Tristan and I are not there.....we are mourning! But, then I just think about the fact that we get to have Bethany forever and I am not AS sad that I am missing this memory. Did ya'll know I ADORE Bethany? Well....now you do! I love you B!


Day One

So....after a lot of dreaming we eventually decided we were going to make this trip no matter what. Tristan has made this summer a summer of making my dreams come true and this trip is no exception to that.  We are having the time of our lives!  

These photos are out of order....I still get it wrong every time.  oh well!  Day one we traveled 12 hours and drove from Brownwood to Canon City Colorado.  We left Brownwood at 1:00pm and arrived at in Canon at 12am Mountain Standard Time. It was an exciting day for us being that we were finally on the road.  We realized it is an easy drive to Canon  and that we need to make it more often.

Sweet potato lunch in the car...yum!

This is when we started.....when we finish this trip it will say something like 5,000!

With love...all the way from Seattle, Wa.....
