I have this pressing need to share the little things about our week here in Breckenridge and since I couldn’t seem to help but take a nap at 9 p.m. tonight, and am now wide awake, it seems like an ideal time to do some sharing.
Dude. It’s been super rad.
Breckenridge is such a cool place. Bill & Sarah live within just a few miles from downtown and they go to this really cool Calvary Chapel that meets in an old building along the main street, just at the bottom of the ski runs. This morning we did something that I’m not sure we’ve ever done before – we worshiped with professional snowboarders and we heard the word “rad” at least ten or twelve hundred times. And that was just during the sermon. Mike and I both loved it!

Mike, Max, Mini and Andrew (Bill & Sarah’s oldest) walking down the street in downtown Breck. Andrew’s Jr. High Sunday School class met in a coffee shop – how cool is that?
So nice to just hang out.
Spending this week with good friends was really needed. It was like a laid-back vacation for us. You may be wondering why we chose Colorado for our adoption, which is a great question. There are lots of reasons, but the main reason is because we had friends back in MD who had wonderful experiences with open adoptions through a Christian agency called Hope’s Promise. Well, when we sent away for the information packet it was easy to make our decision. We don’t have any other ties to Colorado other than that. It’s just a coincidence that Bill & Sarah moved out here since and it’s been a huge blessing for us to have a place to stay for an entire week, eat good food (Sarah is a great cook), play games, and just relax and hang out with close friends.
Max had a great week.
I’ll just let the pictures here speak for themselves.
Mini had her first portrait session.
Sarah is a great photographer and one day we had a little fun making a portrait studio out of her bedroom. The pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL, don’t you think?
