In memory of her and to create new family memories, we are currently traveling as a family to sites that she and I knew and loved. We carry a picture of her, tell stories about her, and feel her close to us as we travel. We are currently in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, but will fly home next week and from there we will head out on a road trip to Idaho. Destinations in Idaho include Yellowstone, Rexburg, Pocatello, and Boise. She taught us to love traveling and seeing new places. It is not the same traveling without her by our side, but like a thousand other things we will do without her, we pray that this will keep us close to her and will bring us closer to each other.
Below are some pictures from our trip so far:
Here we are in the exact spot where I took one of my favorite pictures of Christa from our trip there.
Here the kids are looking down at the very full Bluewater River in Silverthorne, Colordao.
The kids in Breckenridge and playing in some snow we found outside of Breckenridge.

All of us.
