a dream come true... and so much more

This is one of my favorite pictures of me...
I am at my grandparents, in this sparkly, blue vinyl chair, talking to my Uncle Sonny who lived in Colorado. Even though I only met him a few times, he held a very special place in my heart - and because of that, I have always had the desire to travel to Colorado!

Well, today is the day.
We are getting on a plane, and heading west... and by tonight, I will have my arms around my girl. We are really proud of her and her bravery to step out in the world, time after time.  We are excited to see her in her new life, and we are looking forward to helping her do a little more exploring!

It's a bonus that Camden will be along - and Laura was thrilled to hear he is able to come. And so... just that makes this trip wonderful before we have even headed to the airport. I say it a lot, but it is one of my greatest gifts - the relationship between the two of them. These days, I know that to have the four of us together is a rare gift. One day soon, Cam will be offered a job, and he's likely to head off to parts unknown, much like his sister.

Cheers to my always favorite...four. Together.
