Summer so far

It's a done deal - we finally moved in. Queen Creek is pretty far, but after a full week, we are already starting to get used to the daily commute. The best part is that there are Canadians to the left and right of us who are only there 6 months out of the year, no house behind us and a huge grass park in front of us. So, we don't have any "next-door-neighbors", which is wonderful!
We had everything unpacked and away by the 2nd day, but now the everlasting process of decorating is underway. Usually when I decorate for myself I struggle through the miserable process. However... right now everything is flowing so my head...But don't hold your breath, it might take a while to accumulate "stuff".

We've been up to some fun things before the move:

Memorial Day weekend we went quad riding with my dad in Prescott. We came home and then drove back up to Prescott the next day to my grandpa's cabin with my aunt and her husband. Kevin cooked dutch oven chicken and potatoes. It was a short day trip, but long fun weekend :)

We also just went to Bryce Canyon with Kev's family for 4 days. It was a lot of fun. We stayed at an RV park up there. Kevin and I decided to stay in his parent's motor home this time instead of roughing it out in a tent, like last year. While up there, we visited Zion National Park, went quad riding and spent time with Kev's family.

Then, it was one of my best friend's birthdays on the 17th!!! Katelyn turned the BIG 21! All of us girls went out to Red Robin for dinner and then over to Meagan's new house afterwards.

P.S. - Although I am happy for our house, I will miss swimming and laying out by the pool at our apartment!.....

good thing i made a spare key!
