Fun news! + Summer Bucket List

Once again, it’s been way too long since I’ve blogged. I haven’t been keeping up with my goals for 2013 except for one huge one! We moved to Castle Rock, Colorado in March of 2013! To say I’m excited would be a huge understatement! We drove out here on a Thursday, had my husband’s interview on a Friday morning, found a rental house that afternoon, and drove back to Kansas on Saturday. The next few days, I don’t remember, but it involved packing an entire house, saying goodbye tofriends and family and driving the truck and our whole lives back out on Thursday again, exactly 1 week from the time we first made the trip!! Talk about a whirlwind.01PhoneCollage

Excuse the iPhone pics, I don’t think I pulled my big camera out the whole week!

We have slowly settled into our new home and there are still many days that I’m shocked when I drive out of our neighborhood and see the Rockies. I’m not on vacation! I don’t have to leave this gorgeous place. Better yet, we get to explore at our leisure. And that is exactly what we’re going to do.


I came across this fun site, Happy Family Movement that is all about experiencing memorable events throughout the summer (and hopefully the rest of the year too). Together as a family, you create your own Summer Bucket List. It can be little things, like watching fireworks, to big events, like riding the cograil to the top of Pike’s Peak! Crazy excited about that one! The point is, to spend your summer making memories that involve the whole family. So last night, the Goods sat down and created our list. I’m going to be making a larger display for our house so that we can see the progress throughout the summer, but for now, here is what we came up with.


 Make sure to head over to the Happy Family Movement if you want to register (for Free!) and see what thousands of other fun families are doing this summer! And make sure to check back for progress on our own bucket list!
