Colorado week 1

We made it! We have been in Fort Collins, CO for almost a week now. We drove here from CA which took about 3 days (we paced ourselves =). We were able to stay at my aunt's house in Las Vegas for 1 night, and it was so great to see her. Then we stayed in a hotel about 4-5 hours away from Fort Collins. The drive here was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We took a lot of pictures and stopped at a few view points to take in the amazing views. Since we have been in Fort Collins we have been pretty busy with our training, but it has been a great experience so far. We have made some friends that are living on the same floor as us. It has been great beacuse they are all also newly married and we have really enjoyed spending time with people that are in a similar spot in life as us.

Things that are different about CO:

-weather changes constantly
-more gluten free food (yay for Ally =)
-dry (not so good for allergies =)
-everyone obeys the speed limit
-the reg. unleaded gas is 85
-more green everywhere
