We made it!

No pictures as of now, but hopefully the blog will be up and running again shortly. We are here safe and sound in San Diego, and it has been great so far. We were sad to leave our lives in Colorado and all of our great friends (you know who you are :)), but are looking forward to new adventures in California. The packers came last wednesday, movers came thursday, and we started our drive on Friday. We headed to Utah first and my family was able to meet us in Provo for a last get together before we moved. We enjoyed time at BYU, Thanksgiving point, visited our family in Lehi, and was able to go visit my Mom and Grandmothers graves which is a tradition for Memorial weekend. On Sunday my little brother Jameson was ordained a Deacon so we were able to support him on his special day. Monday morning we headed to Vegas and spend the afternoon/evening there. We stayed at the Excaliber (I have great childhood memories of family vacations there) and enjoyed the fun pool. The boys were in heaven as it was about 95 degrees and climbing. We then attempted to walk down to Treasure Island (on the total opposite end of the strip) and then walk back to our hotel. It was fun seeing the sights and the boys were good in their stroller, but it was a good 2 hour walk and we were exhausted when we got home. Tuesday morning we headed the rest of the way to San Diego. Our stuff arrived on Wednesday and they got it all in the house and unpacked for us. The house is still in shambles because we are trying to find the best spot for everything, but it will be great once we are done. The next 5 weeks will be spent getting settled and acquainted with our new home and city. Then it's off for a fun filled month of vacationing. We will post pictures soon!
