We're ready and waiting. It's been a slow two weeks for us. The fact that Cam could come while I'm blogging this or that it could be another week has been an interesting thing to deal with. Suddenly, your to-do list gets that much more pressing because, who knows, tomorrow could be the day he decides to come and then our to-do list won't get done. On the other hand, once we mark things off the list (new brakes on the car, finish projects, etc) we're still waiting.

We've officially kicked Jesco out of what used to be a guest bedroom and transformed it into Cam's room. A thorough cleaning and two paint colors later (wasn't gray enough!), we're ready for him to arrive. Erin has done an awesome job at picking out things. There's still a few things left to add but here's a few pictures...

Jesco White: A Tribute

Our dog has been sad lately. He probably knows that he's about to lose a bunch of attention when Cameron Thomas (a.k.a. The Little Legend) arrives. Therefore, we thought it would be fitting to give Jesco his very own tribute. A quick profile:

Name: Jesco
Aliases: Jessie, Jesco White, Jess, Elvis
Named After: This dude
Breed: Golden Retriever
Hobbies: Sleeping, Eating, Barking
Fears: Trash Cans or anything that moves
Favorite Meal: Purina Dog Chow and Water. Occasionally a pillow.
Other Skills:
- Super Tornado Spin (see video below)
- Tap Dances (see video below)
- Wags tail at 150mph (see video below)

Other Necessary Facts:
- Jesco has more joy than any human we've ever met.
- His adventurous heart has led to him being sprayed by a skunk twice.
- Devon's mom believes he fears trashcans because he was "abused by a trash man." (This rumor is unconfirmed)
- He is the picture of unconditional love
- Jesco has given his life to Jesus and is going to Heaven (also unconfirmed)

Video Note: This music is from the opening scene of "Dancing Outlaw." Personally, we do not believe that if you want to get to Heaven "you have to raise a little hell" (ex. Romans 10:9)

Hello World!

We've been wanting to start a blog for a while now. Of course, now that we're less than a month away from adding a 3rd member to our family (*Editor's Note: Erin just corrected me - 4th member. Our dog, Jesco, should be included) we thought it was finally time.

There's nothing we love more than a good, long drive. Whether it be through the mountains of Colorado or the backroads of Tennessee, we love the peacefulness...the togetherness...the sweetness of traveling somewhere together. Our hope for this blog would be to let you - our friends and family - in on the journey. So thanks for joining us and thanks for reading.
