on our own

Last weekend I drove behind Travis to Salt Lake City to spend one last weekend with him before our five week parting (minus weekends). It's true. Travis has moved up to Salt Lake to do one last and final rotation at Salt Lake Regional. I have decided to stay in Cedar so that I can continue working and to stay busy. This is not the first time that Travis and I have been apart but that certainly doesn't make it any easier. I still cried myself to sleep that first night but experience has taught me that each night gets a little easier-which is comforting.
For those of you that don't know for three months of our engagment I was living in Salt Lake and he was living in Cedar. For the whole summer he came up every weekend to be with me. Three years later-Travis is living in Salt Lake, I am in Cedar, and I will be going up to Salt Lake every weekend to be with Travis and I'm totally okay with that. Travis is working hard and I am more than happy to repay him for always coming up to see me. I love you babe! Go get 'em in the big city! You're gonna do great!

2 kids and 60 pictures later

Our niece, Avary, has loved playing with our digital camera since we got it. I've never really had a problem with her taking pictures with it because I can just delete them when the weekend is over. Well now Atkin has joined in Avary's love for taking pictures. It is always fun to go back through the pictures to see what they took and to see if any actually came out clear. In this case, not so much. Well because there are sixty pictures, I won't share them all with you but I will show you enough to give you a good idea what kids find important enough to take a picture of. Enjoy!

Baby brother, Easton
