This time, we aren't leaving...



We're going back!

Yes, Ryan will be completing his two-year pediatric residency at The Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

We are totally stunned, for a number of reasons--I will explain tomorrow.  For now, a few pictures to get everyone excited:

Real mountains
One enthusiastic Grampy (pictured here wearing my apron)
One adorable Grammy (pictured here wearing Laura's sweats, t-shirt, and tennis shoes)
One good-looking father (pictured here wearing a man sarong)

One amazing restaurant
Yes, there is one near Denver!  And yes, that really does rank as high as my family (JK fam!)

...and a few really good friends who recently moved to Denver after completing dental school last year!  Hooray!  Can't wait to see you guys!

Don't forget:

Party tonight!
8:00 p.m.
Nielson Crib (yes, it on Rounds Ave, we call it a crib)
Anyone is invited!
Dessert will be served.

**THEME: Colorado (I have to admit that I have no idea yet what that entails, but I better figure it out in the next six hours.)  
**SUGGESTED DRESS: Orange and Blue (Broncos colors)

  14. Given what you told us about the interview that does seem surprising! But of course we are soooooo excited! I guess it was just meant to be. I'm glad one wait is over and I hope the baby wait is over SOON. We're praying! Can't wait to hang out with you guys!

  16. I hope you are happy with the match! For obvious reason, I am thrilled! But I am thinking the theme food might have been a bit of a challenge; I like the "rocky road" idea. I'm sure you had a great celebration no matter what. Can't wait to hear "the rest of the story".
