Overdue! We've moved!

So we finally moved out of our little apartment and upgraded to a new place just around the corner from our old one. Its a duplex (I've heard it called duplex, twin home, and town home- all I know is its like a house with a siamese twin). We're so excited and Sophie is finally a legal resident and is thrilled to have a yard. What's funny is we were debating between two places and one factor in choosing this one is we thought we would still be in the same ward..think again. Its just two blocks away from our apartment and we're in a different ward! Weird. But thats ok, change is fun and our new ward has been really awesome so far. Here are a few pictures..

Our last day with our primary class :(

So we were also able to find a new car!!! I'm so excited, the newest car I had ever driven before the wreck was the 1997 Toyota Camry that got totalled. This is our wonderful 2004 Honda Accord! Hoorah!

Sophie in flight!!
So we took Sophie for a big adventure the other day. We flew to Rexburg and took her on her first flight! She was terrified and didn't like it at all so she had to ride home afterwards in the car with Dylan's mom. But it was a fun experience! (for us)

Summer time

SO. Its been a terribly long time since I've blogged. We had a period of time without internet while we've been moving but I'm all up and running now! (Moving blog coming soon)

For the last few weeks we've been trying to get the most out of the rest summer before Dylan goes back to school. We had a fun rafting adventure in Jackson and Caitlyn's dad was in town and had a blast!

We next headed to Lagoon for Caitlyn's birthday. Big 20!!! No pictures unfortunately but tons of fun in the sun. Then just last weekend we drove to Rock Springs, WYO to see my mom. It was great fun with my crazy family and Sophie loved seeing her nana. We did some golfing (and I did some caddying) We took Erin with us too. The best part of the trip was my mom taught me how to make her amazing homemade pies! Much good baking to come from the Cooper Kitchen!

Some not so fun summer news... Last Friday I got in a car accident on Sunnyside. The wreck was not my fault at all which is nice as far as insurance goes but it has turned into a big pain and a lot of paper work. I was driving along on Sunnyside when out of nowhere a minivan pulled out onto Sunnyside without looking at all. She hit my passenger side front bumper and sent me spinning to the curb on the opposite side of the street. Miraculously I am completley fine, just a little sore. My Camry however did not do so hot. As Majestic Autobody would say "it is a total loss". SO the search for a new car begins.

A perspective view..her minivan is clear back there on the left. I spun pretty far!
