Well, now I can officially say that I have been to Colorado. Out of all the places I've been, I've never made it Colorado! Turns out Nick's good friend was getting married so he took a couple days off work to visit his family and go to the wedding. After a canceled flight and seven hours of driving, I finally met Nick and his family in Durango. I had so much fun spending time with him and his family, exploring the ranch, and seeing the place where he grew up. It was a great weekend..and Durango is beautiful!

The Beginning

After months of having an empty blog, I decided to finally post something! So here it is- the family vacation to Florida. After finishing finals, it was just the break that I needed!

We stopped in Kansas City to see Aaron and Nick for a couple days and did some church history touring in the process.

We met Aaron in the streets of Independence, Missouri to see him on-the-job. We let Scott knock doors with him for about an hour, and, even though they got a sale, Scott's not so sure he likes it.

The "Community of Christ" temple (as they now call it) in Independence. They say it was designed to resemble a sea shell.

Our resort in Orlando

Wakeboarding at OWC in Orlando. Who ever thought you could wakeboard without a boat?

Unfortunately, we don't really have pictures of all of the theme parks we went to. We decided to go "bag-free" so we could get on all of the rides without the hassle of having a bag. But that also means no camera. I think we definitely got our fill of theme parks for a while. We went to Epcot, Bush Gardens in Tampa and Universal's Islands of Adventure. The last time our family was in Orlando was eight year ago... and I think I've been on enough roller coasters to last me another eight years! We also made a trip to the beach and spent some time relaxing at our pool. But overall, it was a great vacation!
