The Waiting Game

The house is put together,
The baby's room is ready
So now we are waiting, waiting, waiting...

Meanwhile, we are having fun here in Vernal
and hosting lots of visitors.
Rhett's parents and sister came last Saturday afternoon.
The boys and Emily went out to Red Fleet
to find the dinosaur tracks.
Mom Hunt, Andrew and I went downtown
for lots of window shopping
(because in small towns, everything closes at 5:00!)
They stayed to hear us speak in church on Sunday.

On Monday, my sister and her two girls came to visit.
We toured the Dinosaur museum, played at the splash park
and went to the park.
We got a little crafting done as well.
Today, the boys and I went to the Community Center pool
and splashed to our hearts content.
Tomorrow's plan is a picnic at the park
with some friends from town.

That is, unless I have a baby...

Vernal, Utah

I know I've been a bit AWOL for a while
I've been a little busy -
getting the house unpacked
things put away
pictures on the wall
weeds cleared in the front yard
and rooms set up.

We've ventured to some of the Vernal attractions
the splash park
the Dinosaur museum
the library
the temple
various other places around town
and best of all, Steinaker Reservoir
which is only 15 minutes away!!
We like Vernal, so far
it's quiet, clean,
and it only takes 5 minutes to get to Wal-Mart!

We've been back to Salt Lake already
My mom, brother, sister, and her husband
came to visit the week after we moved in
and helped tremendously getting things unpacked
and the house livable.
Then the next week we played with them in Salt Lake and Logan
with the rest of my siblings.
We crafted and I made a comforter for Andrew's new bed.

The boys are loving the space of the house
I've noticed less fighting
(because they're not in each other's way all the time)
and the mess stays upstairs in their room
instead of all over the place.
And we like having a yard again
(even if it's just dirt right now).

I think we're going to like it here...

We've Moved

We're finally here in Vernal!

We made the move this last weekend and after a few glitches, and many calls to the maintanence guy, the house is almost in full working order. We are loving the wide open space, quiet, small town life of Vernal so far. Pictures and more later!!
