Wyoming was awesome and terrible all at the same time. It was awesome because we were SO close to being home, and terrible because it just seemed to take forever. But when we finally arrived in Utah I was ecstatic. I was SO happy to see my mountains, I was giddy. For all of my Virginia friends, this is a mountain.
Beautiful Mt.Ben Lomond almost brought tears to my eyes I was so happy. :) This is the big peak in the town where I am from. Isn't she somethin? It's sure funny what things you take for granted when you jsut get so used to seeing them all of the time. Driving up to CacheValley, I felt like I was looking at that road for the first time with new eyes. Willard Bay, the mountains, Sardine, wow it was wonderful.
We spent this last saturday with the Fuller's and went fishin'. Here we are off the bridge in beautiful Black Canyon. Nate is putting on my worm cause I definitely don't do that kind of stuff.
After not even a nibble, we headed down to Trout Creek where you are always gauranteed to catch something. Guess what? We didn't catch a thing. Here is Nate looking way too happy for having no success. He just loves to be out fishing.I, on the other hand, was not so optimistic about the whole situation.
That's more like it. We don't even eat the fish we catch, we just give it to people, so it's not like we were out a meal or anything. It's just the thrill and all the fun we missed. But nonetheless, still a wonderful way to spend a saturday morning.
When we got back to P-town, Nate got an unexpected call from his favorite mission companion. He lives in Las Vegas and was at Bear Lake for a family reunion. We thought we were still in VA, but called to tell us he was about to pass through Logan. So we immediately took off to head back to Utah and met up with him for a quick catch up and bite to eat. Nate and Green were just so happy and laughed all through dinner with memories. They absolutely love spending time together, and it just doesn't happen nearly enough; they are total goof balls. We were trying to think of a single girl we could have him meet and fall in love with so we could make hime stay in Logan. No such luck cause we unfortunately don't know any single women. Thanks for a good time, Green! Always a pleasure. :)
Our house is getting closer to being put together and actually feeling like a home. Which means major crackdown on the job hunt now, no excuses. Nate's car is currently broken so we are in a bit of crummy situation, but life could be worse. We spent Labor Day with the Fuller's and Co. at the Eastern Idaho State Fair (big tradition). It was very cold and wet, but always a good time. We don't have the internet, so my blogs may not be as often as they were, but hopefully that will change soon, if I have any say. Wish me luck in my job hunt!
