Hales Here

My sister Tye came for a visit with her cute kiddos.  Man we love our cousins 'round here!

Labor Day in Jackson

We spent some quality time with my parents and brothers over Labor Day weekend.  A fun day in Jackson Hole checking out the local scene and a night of marshmallows over the fire.

A week with the Bake's

 We got to have the Bake cousins for a week of fun, family times.  With all of these girls we just HAD to do some makeovers and pictures.  We even made a special movie for Tara and Kevin.  We played glow in the dark tag on the golf course, swimming at Rigby Lake, selling cotton candy, and stuffed ourselves with pizza and ice cream.  Good Times with the Bake/Jack Pack!

Hiking in New Territory

Hiking Intermittent Springs In Afton- It wasn't quite as "intermittent" as we hoped it would be, but it was still so beautiful!   I love a day spent like this.

Welcome to Wyoming

 We wasted no time in settling into our new home and id a few things right off the bat-We kicked off our first week in Star Valley with the County Fair.  They take their fairs seriously around here:)  Allie got to even be a part of one of the shows!
Then, we sold our smaller cotton candy machine and got a much bigger one! 

Lastly, we explored our beautiful back yard golf course and did a little fishing in the near-by pond.

We are so happy with our decision to move here.  Although it was scary and came with some inevitable anxiety, we knew it was the right choice for our family.  We pinch ourselves every day at the beauty and blessings of our lives.

Leaving our home in Monticello was not an easy thing to do!  I cried, laughed, and cried some more.  Happy for an adventure, but so sad to leave so many people we loved behind.  Thank goodness we know we will see them again.  We knew moving to Monticello was the right thing to do at that time in our lives, just as we know that moving to Wyoming is  right for us right now.  Papa Bear and my brothers came to help us move...My dad slept outside...because it was more comfortable for a lawn chair...yep, that's my dad.  Our friends surprised us the next morning with a banner for us to drive through!  My friend Mindy parked her car in front of our cars so we wouldn't leave before they got there:)  Such awesome friends I have!  Goodbye house!  We hope you sell soon!  Goodbye San Juan friends and family!  We will miss you terribly!
