We have arrived

We made it to Arizona last night! I thought that I would let everyone know that we made the drive just fine. (Since I don't have a phone right now and can't call anyone I thought that I would make a post. If you do need to get a hold of me call on Ryan's phone 801-687-2011) After a very cold day of working on the house- in the snow Ryan's parents got to Utah to help us! We don't know what we would have done without them! They helped us with everything. Ryan and I both feel like it would have taken us a week to pack the truck if they hadn't come. But we got everything done in the time that we needed, even with Ryan getting a sprained ankle! Ouch! Also, good thing that Lisa was there to help and hold Jack or I wouldn't have been able to get anything done and Ryan and I both would have been sitting on the couch. (Him with his foot in ice of course) Oh and thanks again Lisa for making me cry. I almost never cry, but she managed to get it out of me.- in person. I like to do most of my crying in private. I am so sad to leave my dearest friend. We have gone through a lot together over the past 7 years! Including dating hot motorcycle boys, meeting our husbands, our weddings and being there for the birth of each others children! You better come and visit me soon!
It took us about 12 1/2 hours to get here. Not bad when the moving truck could only go 20 miles per hour up some of the hills. The kids did WONDERFUL! I couldn't have asked for them to be any better. Jack only cried for the last ten minuets! I am so thankful that they both were happy and never threw up or anything. Although Ella did pee on the side of the road once. I thought it very brave. Ella was so funny, while driving she was asking about all of the rocks, hills and plants. Later on she looked over to me- Mom, looks like we've left the land of the rocks and for the land of the bushes. I love her perspective on things.
So now we are here, staying with Ryan's parents for the next couple of days until we can find a rental house. I have a few I've found online that I really like. We are so excited to be here and start our new adventure! All I have to say is it's 80 degrees here! Yippee!
Thanks for all of your help and well wishes! We already miss all of you in Utah! We hope that you can come and visit us soon!
