We are Officially living in Utah~

This last weekend we embarked on the adventure of moving to Utah so Alma can continue in school at BYUs Graduate Program for Accounting.

We Packed up our whole apartment all last week and cleaned like no one had ever cleaned before and said our goodbyes to our wonderful neighbors and friends and started on this new adventure to Utah valley.

Everything in our move went very smoothly. Getting the truck, packing, moving, unpacking the truck (thank you soooo much to all those who helped. Todd, Daniel, Nicki, Pat, Jared, Kacey, Eric.) It was so wonderful to be able to do all the unpacking and packing the truck with extra hands.

We arrived to our apartment around 3pm on Sat. and we unpacked and set up as fast as possible. It was so nice to have Kaitlyn at my sisters house so we didn't have a cute little distraction.

We are all set up today, Monday, except a few things here and there that we would like to do. Finishing touches but it is so nice to be home and settled.

There are a few things we still are working on, getting gas turned on so we can have hot showers, getting lights replaced and cabinets in our bathroom and getting the cable and internet set up. But we love how much space this apartment has!

It sure is different here. Idaho was so quite and peaceful and when we looked out of our bedroom window in Idaho we saw a field with trees and occasionally cows and the temple. But now we look out our window in Orem and we see parking lots and I-15. Last night we counted how many cars were going each way on the freeway for one whole min. There were 74! And that was a Sunday night.

Anyway, we are so excited to be here and if any of you live here call us up! we would love to see ya!

Wish I could post pictures, but I can't find the cord to hook the camera to the computer with. Must be in the same box that I cant seem to find that has everything else in it that I can't find. Love how that happens!

So what's your address in Orem. Jen and I are probably right around the corner if you need anything.

Connie and Brandon said...

Glad you guys made it safe to UT and everything went smoothly! We are planning on going to the TX reunion on Saturday. We will have to catch up then.

Counting cars on the highway that must have been a blast, sounds like you need the Wilson's. Yea, I agree with Jesse too with pics and the neighbors. Your welcome for helping and stuff, that's what friends are for right.
