Due to sudden relocation, they moved the family west to Evergreen Colorado.   The prior year saw a comprehensive italian inspired front patio terrace, a star-trek level HVAC system that was installed to accompany a two story addition to the back of the home.   Six months later, duty called, and they were packing for the wild west!
