Today we went to Fort Collins.

We loved it.

Santa on ice

Carolers downtown

Outside a cupcakery YUUUMMM

Right at the edge of town

Today we explored downtown, went to a few grocery stores, drove around for a long time, requested information at a few apartment places, toured one model apartment, and made a very honest pros and cons list.  There were 17 of each.  Fantastic.

We also stayed up late talking to George & Judy and are now super tired!!  Tomorrow we are going for a run to see how the altitude affects that… should be interesting.  Then we are picking up Cliff Hutchison (close friend from WBC who lives here) around noon in Littleton and driving down to Colorado Springs to see the Garden of the Gods (google it).

Observations of the day:  Girls here wear little to no makeup.  The indoor farmer’s market smells like hippies (body odor and patchouli).  I don’t think I saw one overweight person in Fort Collins.  And you know you’re not in Walnut Ridge, AR, when you are walking through a specialty kitchen goods store and hear, “Sweetie, will you come help me pick out a cheese knife?”
