New House

We just found out a few hours ago that the negotiations on our new house are over.... we are getting it!!!!  I'm so excited I could cry!!!!!   It is a beautiful, brand new home.  It is the only one I REALLY  liked after touring at least 30 different homes.  Now I have to get all the mortgage work done, and hopefully we'll be closing and moving in before the end of August.  One of my favorite things about it, is that we can see the temple and the Teton mountains from the family room.  The boys haven't been inside, but Emily has.  She has picked out her room because it has a window seat, and she can see the temple from her window.  I will have almost 1-1/2 acres of land to landscape..... any ideas?!!!?

Fast and Furious

Things are finally moving along!  Yay!!  After waiting for 6 months for our house to sell, we finally got an offer.  The time between the offer and the closing date was less than 2 weeks!  I am going to Montana on Monday to sign the closing papers and do some painting (as part of the agreement). (I'll be in Hamilton from the 6th till at least the 9th, and would love to see friends... hint.. hint...  :)   I'm so excited!  I spent the afternoon yesterday looking at houses here, and still haven't found the right one for us... but, I'm sure it will work out!!

This summer is flying by with the kids involved in all sorts of activities.  We've been meeting our cousins every week for a fun activity.  We've gone to the zoo, the temple visitors center, and several museums.  We made ice cream, painted wood models, make alka-seltzer rockets, and had picnics.... lots of fun! 

Tony's parents were here last weekend and we went out and spent 5 hours stuck in a mud hole.  The sheriff had to track us by our cell phone signal, then come pull us out.  It was scary and not so fun, but we made the best of it and are glad to be home safely! 

 We had a ward activity where they had a climbing wall... Em was the only one of our family brave enough to reach the very top!

We got to spend a Saturday morning at the air show, watching the cool planes!  It was so exciting to see them dive and spin... made me want to be flying with them!!

So... that's we've done with our summer so far!  I'll keep posting about all our fun adventures!!!
