Moving and ANNIVERSARY!!!!

This past weekend, Kevin and I moved to our new apartment in Westminster. We are very thankful to my parents, and our friends Heather, Jarod, Julie, Courtney, Dave, and Teo for helping us and making the move much less painful! We could not have done it without them!

Sunday was our good friend Heather's birthday. For her birthday, she wanted to go see the USA women's soccer team play against Brazil at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. It was an Olympic qualifying match. It was HOT outside, but we had a great time, and USA won 1-0.

On Monday, Kevin and I celebrated our one year anniversary! I had already decided to take this week off of work, so we decided to have a fun day to ourselves. We decided to go up to Rocky Mountain National Park and drive up Trail Ridge Road. It had been a very very long time since I have done this, and I'm so glad we did! We got some great pictures of ourselves.

And we saw some wildlife too! Here's a whole elk herd:
And a deer:
And then the coolest one of all:

For the 4th of July weekend, we spent it all at weddings. Kevin's best friend, Nathan, got married on Saturday. Kevin was the best man, so we headed up to Estes Park on Friday for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal dinner was at the Lake Estes Marina, so we BBQed and watched the fireworks over the lake. It was fun! Saturday was the wedding, so we arrived at the sight pretty early. It was probably one of the most fun weddings I have ever been to. And I've been to A LOT of weddings recently! They were so happy, and we are so happy for them! Nathan and Jessica are a great couple. Sunday, we helped them load their presents into their car and come back home. Then, we got ready for ANOTHER wedding on Sunday evening. This one was for Kevin's co-worker and our new friends, Jeremy and Nicole. This was also a great wedding. They had an 80's cover band at the reception. It was awesome.

That was our crazy weekend. This week is even crazier. We are moving on Saturday, so we are in the middle of packing and all that stuff. Our apartment is a mess. Moving is stressful enough, but on top of it, I'm still working more than full time this week, going to school full time, and Kevin is painting a house, so he's working 15 hour days! ACK! I'll be glad when this week is over.

We do have some fun things on the horizon though! On Sunday, we are going to see the USA women's soccer team play Brazil, then Monday is our one year anniversary! I'm taking next week off of work to get settled in our new place and relax a bit. If we can just make it through this week...we can do it, we can do it (insert mice singing Disney song here).
