We've got a hole!

Most of you know that we are building a home out in Daybreak which is in South Jordan. Sure it's far from school and work but once you see these pictures you'll see why we couldn't resist.
This is what you see when you first drive up the hill.
We'll be saving up our money so that we can get some beach cruisers and go out exploring.
Minus the waves this will act as my new beach during the summers. It's got sand and it's just down the street!
We're going to get some paddle boats so we can entice people to hang out with us.
This is also down the street.
This is our little sign during Christmas time
Oh and the parks here would entertain us for a good hour. Each park has a theme and there are many to choose from.
Here are some of the houses. We liked them because they're all fun colors and different styles. Our house is going to be red- we didn't choose that but we don't mind.

They did tell us that our house was supposed to be done in August, but just to make us happy they dug us a hole to tell us that they're "starting." We'll let you know if we end up moving in to a van down by the river due to the miscalculation of our finished house.

Utah's Finest

This weekend Reuben and I went to the demolition derby in South Jordan with a bunch of friends.
But it doesn't matter because here is a man with a mullet picking his nose.
Then there was some smashing of cars.
Funny that we cheer this on:)
But it doesn't matter because here is another mullet.
The trucks crashing was the best part. There was a "909" truck and, of course, one with the confederate flag. I didn't know which one to cheer for.
This was cool.

But it doesn't matter because this was the best mullet of the night. Thanks Utah!

Two Years... single tear!

Two years ago today- my family picked me up from the airport after spending 19 months on a mission in Georgia and Tennessee for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Here are some high lights. I wont say too much, just because reliving all of it makes me miss the great people and the south too much.
This is the road to my trailer in Loudon, Tennessee
This would be the trailer with the cows around us to keep us company.
We were very welcomed in the South
But we met a lot of GREAT people who made all the difference
The Ramsey family
Let's not comment about the roundness of my face- it was part of the deal

These people have the coolest stories
I love this family- well I love all of the families we taught
And then all of a sudden my president said it was time to go home, I've never cried so hard in my life:(
There are a lot more pictures but I'll save those for Reuben and my missionaries at the MTC that wouldn't mind looking at mission pictures for a few hours!
