Jake and I will be leaving Raleigh tomorrow! I've been trying to pack up as much as I can and now it's major cleaning time! Laundry, scrubbing, dusting, vacuuming...
This is the plan for travel right now:
  • Thursday- Raleigh to Nashville
  • Friday- Nashville to Amarillo
  • Saturday- Amarillo to Flagstaff
  • Sunday- Flagstaff to Cedar City to visit my grandma
    then drive the rest of the way to Cedar Hills!

That will give us about a week in Utah before we head up to Washington! We're so excited to see our families! We love you all!

Old Salem/Boone

On saturday, Jake and I drove out west to Boone. We decided to stop in at Old Salem for a little bit to walk around. It was such a cool place and I'm so glad I got to see it! Before leaving, we stocked up on Moravian cookies, rolls, strawberry jam, cheese straws and banana nut bread! We got back in the truck and drove the rest of the way out to Boone to Uncle Mike's house. He showed us around their house and we brought our stuff inside then took off to get some dinner. After dinner, we met up with Penny at ASU for the BANFF Mountain Film Festival! That was soo awesome. They showed films about base jumping, extreme skiing, deep sea rock was all good stuff.

Sunday morning, Uncle Mike and Aunt Penny made us breakfast and then we hurried off to make it to church. They have a small branch out there. It was fun to have Mike and Penny there with us. We drove home from church and we all got bundled up for a hike up Hawk's bill. It was a nice hike and a beautiful view at the top!

Jake and I had a great time up in the mountains!

Also, Happy Birthday, Todd!

Jake has me hooked on LOST! We started watching episodes online from season 1 and we're going all the way through them all so I can be caught up to this season. He's created a monster! We've been up wayyy too late the past 3 nights watching as many episodes as Jake will let me. ;) This show is soooo good!! Now I understand why Shea was counting down the minutes until the season started! I get way into them. Jake just laughs at me.
