Howdy, howdy!

We are moved and mostly settled in--just need to hang the pictures on the walls! It is so nice to have all this space (our home has nearly doubled in size with this move). And a new place is like a clean slate. Even though it is a similar apartment, it feels so different here too. I will post pictures of the new place once everything is totally IN place.

Oh, P.S. to my last post. Sturgis did not happen. Poor Rob's hopes were dashed with a roadside breakdown just past Jackson (Black) Hole, WY. I told him I am going to sew a patch on his motorcycle jacket that looks like this:

He wasn't real fond of that idea...

ANYway...While my family visited, we spent a day over in Yellowstone National Park, driving and seeing the sights on the south loop. I haven't been to Yellowstone since I was just a kid--maybe 7 or 8. We went just a year or so after the fire that ate so much of Yellowstone. As a result, my memories were of a very other-worldly place--sort of apocalyptic. This time, I was struck by it's beauty and diversity.

Here are a few pictures of us enjoying the day:

{Grandpa's Buddy}

I can't decide if I like the color or black and white better...what do you think?

Ok...I like this one best:

Waiting for Old Faithful...

{Thar she blows!!!}

{Waiting for lunch...}

{Near Dragon's Breath Cave...and look, a very rare picture of Myself...}

{Dragons have stinky breath...}


{The kids were crazy about having their older cousins there. And we are keeping our fingers crossed that the visit made this high school senior think hard about Idaho for next year!}



  1. Wish we could've been there. I love that you got pics of Mom and Dad. Rare and awesome. Like photos of unicorns. Love you!

  2. Hey, I am trying to keep up on your blog I started at the VERY first post so I'm kinda behind, but anyways, you moved across the street!? That's crazy! back and forth, back and forth, all day!? Do the kids like the new house? Do you like it? Does the "mister" like it? How's Squirrel lately? I want to see her again. When are you coming back down to Utah? Thanksgiving? Christmas? New years? When are you coming back I so want to see you! I miss you dearly! When you come can we sew together? What brand is you sewing machine? Well talk to you later! Hope to see you soon! Tell everyone I said hi!
    Love you!
