The kids were AWESOME on the trip. Jac seriously listened to "Ender's Game" (his book on CD) the whole time! The only complaining that happened was about 1/2 hour out of Boulder. The kids have been so excited to move to Colorado...Ethan was crying because we couldn't sleep in our new house the first night we were in Colorado. We stayed in a hotel for two nights since the moving truck couldn't be there until Friday. We got a surprise visit from my father-in-law who just took a drive and found himself in Colorado. Needless to say, we weren't too disappointed to have a visit from him.
Jac's first day at the office was Thursday. I was stuck at the hotel with 4 kids and a dog. I wanted to do something fun with the kids that didn't consist of too much walking since I would have to carry the car seat around. (yea...not so fun) So...I decided it would be fun to go to the library. So, after battling the "free" continental breakfast, I packed the kids in the car to go to the library. I was so proud of myself for actually finding the library!!! But to our disappointment the library was closed on Thursday. haha...now what!?! There was a grocery store nearby so we stopped there got crayons, coloring books, and lunch. We got back to the hotel and I thought it was a successful outing because I went and got back to the hotel without getting lost! (for those who don't know...I have a horrible sense of direction so getting anywhere is a great accomplishment)
We ate at a place called The Rib House. Great pulled pork sandwiches and we listened to my father-in-law play his guitar at the Open Mic Night. Thursday was also the day that I tried a Chocolate-Bacon Cupcake. Anyone who is reading this should just come and visit us to try a Chocolate-Bacon Cupcake....haha, just kidding. It actually was really good!
