The new norm, for now.

Welcome to our new home state for awhile kids.

I must say, it has been a busy week or so.  I started working the day after we got to Colorado, so things seem like a blur.  We have settled into our campsite here at Aspen Basalt Campground.  It is a nice 25 minute commute to the job site, which is in Snowmass.  The Westin is doing a complete remodel, but will be open for ski season, so the pressure is on to be done in time.  Because of that, I am working 10 hour days, 6-7 days a week.  I don't get to do much exploring, but Stephanie and the kids have had some fun traveling around and seeing what they can find.  The bus system that runs up and down the valley has a stop right outside of our campground, so for just a dollar or two they can all ride into Basalt to do some shopping at a very awesome farmers market, visit the library (which issues short term cards so that the kids can check books out), or visit one of many playgrounds.  We are getting used to having to drive to get places, since towns are spread out and friends are about 45 minutes away.

We are enjoying life around the campground.  The play ground is right across from our site, there is a pool and hot tub, a really nice bath house, and great owners, whom Stephanie and the kids seem to visit everyday.

The playground that the kids want to visit all the time.  It is basically our front yard.

The Westin in Snowmass, CO.  Not a bad view from this room, eh?
We hope to have some more excursions and stories to tell soon, but for now we are just getting comfortable.
