Colorado!!! I have so much to say and so many photos to post, but I am going to start out slow-ly. Our new neighborhood is called Roxborough Park and it really does feel like we are living in a park (it could be for all I know?)! We are nestled in the foothills of the Rockies with spectacular views every way you turn, with giant red rock formations scattered throughout.

There are herds of mule deer and golden foxes roaming around everywhere...and rumor has it we also have mountain lion and bear dens up on the hill. Oh my! And the trails, wow the trails are everywhere; you can bike, hike or walk on miles of trails. (If only I could get used to the eleveation--5751 feet--and not feel like I was dying every time I went for a walk!) Also here is the Arrowhead Golf Club, which is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful golf courses in the US.

I look forward to waking up each morning just so I can stare out the window at my view. The homes in our neighborhood are all different (what a concept) and built into the landscape to look as natural as possible. It is phenomenal, what else can I say! The following photos were taken at our playground...I may never leave this place.
You can see the Denver skyline (squint hard) in between the giant red rocks. Must buy telephoto lens!
Sophie enjoying the playground equipment, all of which had a perfectly weathered and worn look.
View of our neighborhood, with the golf course in between it and the park. I wish you all could see it in person...truly breathtaking.
