Van Progress!

The frame for the bed (with storage) is almost done! We tested out the size today and it fits great!! My dad is a woodworking genius!

Here is an overall view of the frame in the van:

This is how we are going to get to our storage space:

Just for fun, a view of our storage space from ground level:

And most importantly, here is my dad trying out the frame and discovering an unexpected bonus feature of the van:

Jon is also almost finished with his modifications to the dash:

Now for finishing work and the all important task of making it match the super awesome existing wood decor in the van. Go Dad Go!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
