We started our journey to our new home, for the summer, in New York. We left West Jordan, UT after church and arrived in Rawlins, Wyoming around 9:45. We had hoped to make it to Laramie but it started to snow and with all the huge semi trucks blazing by it was kind of a crazy snow storm. If you follow my blog you will get to experience over the next week our trip with us. We hope you enjoy!
As you leave Utah headed for Wyoming the scenery is incredible. There were beautiful green meadows, lots of trains, and really cool rock formations.
Jorge and I have been reading tons of church history in preparation for our trip because we have pLanned to stop at a lot of the sites. We arrived at our first church history site by accident, at a rest stop, in Lyman, Wyoming. We are so grateful for our pioneer ancestors who truly sacrificed so much. This is rough country we are going through and it I think about them being out in the cold and heat and rain and snow and it makes me never want to complain again :)
We are up for our 10th move in 4 1/2 years and I'm hoping not many more after that. I feel a bit transient . Despite not wanting to move I'm excited about the adventures our summer will bring and am looking forward to lots of sight seeing around the East Coast this summer.
Stella and Jorge made a huge fort w/ all our boxes
It's official the storage facility is rented and our first few things are in it.
Today it was so warm outside which is amazing because as I write tonight there is a thin layer of snow on the ground. What a contrast! Anyways we did our laundry today and in between washing and drying we went exploring. We stumbled on the cutest little path called Born to Learn where every few feet there are learning activities to do with your child. We played hopscotch, rubbed the bark of a tree, created a story, stood on the Y and yelled a cheer. It was really fun!
Tonight we got together with some old friends who recently bought a house in Pleasant Grove. The last time we saw them they had 2 children and now they have four. It's so fun to see good families growing and progressing. Rachelle also served Ceviche and empanadas which were very tasty.
