My Trip to Colorado

Eric had the opportunity to come to Colorado to redo his brother's roof. We all thought it would be a fun trip for the whole family, so we all decided to come. Eric has his contractor accounts at home and decide we could save quite a bit of money if we bought our shingles at home and brought them with us. We headed out in the big truck with a heavy load thinking we are going to be on the road for a long time, but we made it to our halfway point in record time (we had a little motivation we were trying to beat Laurie here). Mostly I think it was because the boys are bigger now and we just didn't need to stop as much. Eric and I had talked about staying on the freeway the whole way instead of taking the hwy cut off that we normally do, but when it came time to decide the freeway had been closed and we had to take the hwy. The kids were comfortable and everything was going great until we cam over the top of a hill and around a curve then this happened.






















Thankfully everyone is just fine. It was our whole family in our truck and a couple and their two dogs in the other truck. I know that we are fine because of the fast thinking of Eric and we had prayed before we left so that we would be safe. We were truly blessed not even bruises from the seat belts.
