What a view...

This is the view from Bob & Susie's porch. Isn't it amazing? Right above Lacamas Lake.

House hunting...

Just spending our days in Washington/Oregon looking for a house. I hate house hunting! It's almost as bad as buying a new car!

Still away from home...

After a few fun days at Yellowstone National Park, we are now in Camas, Washington. We had a great time in Yellowstone, and really enjoyed all the natural beauty! It's amazing what God has created! And there were so many animals. Derrick kept saying we could go and see them all at the zoo, but it's not the same as seeing them in the open. We saw a bunch of elk, bisons, birds, part of a moose (he was hiding in some trees), and almost a bear. When we were eating lunch, this huge bison just came walking across the street, through all the cars, thinking nothing of it. Totally crazy!

Crazy driving all day yesterday has found us in Washington at Bob & Susie's house. We are here for a couple of days checking out the area and looking at houses (looks like we might actually be moving here - crazy!), then back home for us just in time for the 4th of July. Hopefully we won't kill each other before then. Having a great time just cruising the U.S.!

Still on the road...

Well, we survived Aspen Grove and are now, believe it or not, in Montana, heading to Yellowstone later today. Aunt Sherri and Uncle Curtis have a townhouse out here, so we decided to come play for a few days. Not sure how long we are staying, just having a grand ol' time driving aimlessly. Aspen Grove was great! We had a really good time with all of our cousins, and then headed to Salt Lake for a Dean Cousin Reunion which includes all of Derrick's extended family. That was a lot of fun too! It's always nice to see all the family. Now, depending on whether I have to work at Memories on Wednesday or not, we will still be heading to Oregon/Washington at the end of this week. Who knows? Just enjoying our time together.

Chad turned 10 on Saturday! I can't believe that we have a 10-year-old!!!! Crazy! Wow!... that makes us old. A 10-year-old going into 5th grade! He's such a good kid too!!! We love him so much! Happy Birthday our sweet baby boy! We love you!

Derrick and I also celebrated our 13-year anniversary yesterday. Didn't do anything exciting (there's not a whole lot in Big Sky, MT, if you're not skiing!), except search for moose around the neighborhood, but it doesn't stop the fact that we've been together for 13 years, are still crazy-in-love with each other, and have 4 wonderful kids, who only drive us crazy some of the time. I love you D! Thanks for the past 13 years... more than half-way to 25 as you told me!!!

Hittin' the road...

Well, we still don't know what the job situation is - sigh! it's driving me crazy - but we're hitting the road today for Utah. Off to a week in Aspen Grove, BYU's family summer camp. We go every couple of years, and it's always a lot of fun. Most of the Huckvale's will be there - except for Rick and Terri and their family - and we're celebrating Grandma and Grandpa's 50th wedding anniversary, so that's pretty exciting.

Then, we might head to Oregon/Washington or Texas for a few days as well. Don't know. Just cruising around America for a while. Might as well, huh? It's summer... and it's way too hot already to stay home!!!

Hucks outta the woods?

Well, D and I spent the weekend in Portland. He went for a job interview and the company flew me out there too... wasn't that nice of them? We had a great time with Bob and Susie and their family - those that are there, at least - and with Heidi and her kids. It's always so nice to see our family! We also really enjoyed it up there in Oregon and Washington. Yes, for those of you "rain-freaked" people, it was a bit rainy, but when we touched down in Burbank it was 99 degrees - I'll take the rain over that any day!

The kids spent the weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Huck. They had a great time - although Luke now knows my cell phone number and called almost every hour on the hour!!! Grandma took the boys and Haley to their school carnival on Saturday and Macy went to the Dodgers game with Grandpa. They all had a great time!
