Home again, Home again

I'm told we owe you recent pictures, so here you go...

Look at Matt's morning "wings". It was a bad hair morning. :)

Our new swimming pool stretches all around 3 sides of the house:

On the Road Again

At this point in our trip we are headed south from Colorado through New Mexico with sights set on Texas, and then ultimately Florida.

Amazing staircase built without any supports (also Santa Fe)

Last stop was in Ft Walton, FL where we amazingly got no pictures!

Baby on his last leg, on his two legs in the car on the last leg of the trip. Did you get that?

And we are home!
