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...

You are incredibly productive! I haven't done half of that and I've been here for a month and I'm very much NOT pregnant. You really only have a month left?
