New Life!

Well, I am unemployed...and so begins this new chapter in our lives. We are leaving Colorado, my home for the past 32 years, my job of the last 12+, and are currently en route to Arizona for pre-boat construction job. We have stopped in Durango for a visit to Grandma Suzi (Brady's mom). We thought we would leave today, but hey it's not like we are in a hurry-maybe we will leave tomorrow :-) The boat survey went well and all seems set for the purchase. We are hoping for a closing date around July 1st. The new name of the boat will be Seaparents (Sam, Emily, Ashley Parents and the watery connection worked well too!) Some of you might be thinking a good name would be "locoparents", but we would have to change the kids names and adopt another, so too bad. We just found out that my dad and clan will be coming to visit in August sometime and we hope to see some of the fireguys later in the year. Anywho, I am off to do nothing in particular, and as soon as we get settled in Arizona, we will post more boat pics and continue with the boring "they're not on a boat yet" blog updates. Also, for those of you who are interested, please sign up for a free skype account @ and we can video chat across the deep blue gratis! (free for the linguistically challenged). Our skype name is seaparents - DO IT!

I am so exited to go on the big adventure! It will be my new life. I can not wait to wake up and see the dolphins along the side of our boat and the whales underneath
. My life will be so happy and exiting and my life will be a big adventure.

Hi my name is Ashley and I'm so happy for our big adventure. I know what we are going to see, we are going to see whales and sea turtles. We are going to see Everything as a big happy family.

I am going to miss my class a lot. I am glad we are going on a boat. I would like to see a sea turtle and whale. It would be so cool if we see all of those things. The boat looks good. I' m glad we are going to see the class before we leave.

the boating adventure has began

We spent last weekend in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico surveying the boat we are buying. It was pretty amazing watching them hual the cat out of the water. Troy and I both didn't want to leave sunny Mexico. We actually thought about calling and having the kids shipped down, but we still have a few things to wrap up state side. Soon we will be watching sunsets from the tramp of the boat.
