We have been in Pueblo Colorado for half a month now and I have only eaten their famous green chili three times (I am sure I will get much more of it before we leave). Brad has been busy in the ER here, he almost acts like a real doctor there since they aren't used to having students. I have enjoyed being able to go running (leaving Charly with Grandma) and having the beautiful mountains as my backdrop.

When we first got here we decided to take Brad's parents motorcycles and ATV out for a spin up in the mountains by them. The snow slowed us down a little but it was still lots of fun. This little cabin was near the end of our trail, that would be an amazing place to stay.

We also went and walked around the reservoir, I had heard so much about it I finally had to take a look for myself.
Yeah that is Pikes Peak in the background there.
Seeing who is better at skipping rocks
Charly wanted to try too

Down on the Arkansas River they have the longest mural in the united states (that is at least what Brad claims)
There is also a kayak course that they have set up that someday I totally want to go down.

Here is a little taste of what I see on my morning runs
This I learned is Walking Stick
And this is Rabbit Brush

Happy Halloween

So this year for Halloween Charly was a Cowgirl (thanks Necia for the costume). We didn't think we would even get to do anything for Halloween so I had her dressed us all day when we were running errands. Of course all our cashiers thought she was too cute in her costume. At the end of the night we decided to go trick or treat at some of Brad's old friends houses, and at his old house. So most of Brad's pictures growing up consist of his Halloween costume and always in front of the same door in their house. So we thought it would be funny to ask to take a picture of Charly in front of the same door too. They happen to be remodeling the house so we didn't get the door, but there is still the door frame. I am sure this picture is a keeper.

Here is one of Brad's pictures (I am guessing this is middle school)

See the matching door frame...

Oh and of course we carved pumpkins.
