Rocky Mountain High

We packed in another fun weekend trip--this time to Colorado Springs and Denver! We started down in Colorado Springs visiting Amanda's grandparents and Uncle Mark, Aunt Jan, and cousin Sophie. We visited the Olympic Training Center during the day before heading to Sophie's volleyball game and then out to dinner. It was fast, but we fit lots of fun in! That night we drove up to Denver to meet up with Jason's buddies. Mike and Diane Mirowski were great hosts for everyone! Saturday started with breakfast at the Village Inn, per tradition, and then all the guys headed to the GABF, and the girls went for massages! That night we all met up for dinner at Rock Bottom. Sunday morning started with trials of Mike's new sword before we headed over to see Jason's Uncle Phil and Aunt Vonnie for a wonderful picnic at the Denver Botanical Gardens. Our friends and family took such great care of us, and it was a fabulous weekend away!

All Settled In

Well, we are all settled into our new place, and we are so happy! It already feels like home, and we are so grateful to our friends and family for the help in this adventure. We put a few shots below, mainly of spaces that were painted or changed, so that everyone can see the work we have been talking about. Casa Stremel is officially open for visitors, so we can't wait for you to visit!
