I don't know how many of you were aware but for the past 2 years Bryce and I have been a one car households. This meant make a few sacrifices, like waking up an hour early so that I could ride the train into work, and putting up with all the lovely nuances of having a jeep wrangler as your only car. We had been saving all of our pennies to be able to get a "nice car", or at least something that could go faster than 50 mph up a hill and wasn't basically a tent on wheels. One day last November, after quite a wait we finally were able to buy a 2007 Honda Accord. It was every thing we wanted. The following Saturday, Bryce and I took the "new" car on a drive. These are pictures of Bryce, accelerating up a hill going 75 mph. This is something he hadn't done for quite sometime and you can see his reaction. Ahh..pure joy! I love my little speed freak and so far he hasn't even received a speeding ticket. Yeah for new cars!

Hiked to 6 different waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge.

Eaten at the Firehouse restaurant. The Chef and co-owner is a friend of mine.

Served a lot of carrots to some beautiful horses.

Spent some quality time with family.

Walked along the Wilhemette River at sunset.

Solved a CSI mystery at the OMSI.

Played on a deserted beach at sunset.

Played in the tide pools.

Touched Haystack rock.

Touched a starfish.

Hiked up a mountain and then had to bushwack our way back.

Vacation has Arrived!!!!

First day of vacation. We Ate dinner at my parents house and got to see Mara, the two boys, Mark, Lindsey and their kids. After that we went to the zoo!
It was raining really hard but that just meant Robin could hang on tight to me and we shared the umbrella. It did clear up later and turned out really great!
Below I will attach Pictures. We are flying out to Oregon tomorrow and we are both super Stoked!

This next one is Hilarious! A Monkey put his face right up to the glass and just stared at us. It was awesome!

Our new home

We are finally all moved in. Pictures are hung on walls. The internet is installed. We moved to Farmington at the end of December. I know, crazy that we moved in the dead of winter, but it went really quick. Bryce and his posse were able to load the Uhaul in less then 2 hours. After getting stuck on the ice for a brief moment, they were able to unload even faster.
It always takes me a long time to hang anything on the walls. It seems to be something practically permanent and should be done perfectly the first time. Our new ward is great. We have already been visited by all the organizations.
I have enjoyed going on more walks and having a small deck, even though it is still too cold o do anything on it. Bryce enjoys his new computer room. We both love being so close to the mountains. Mom and Dad Petersen were also very excited that we were out of SLC. My Mom has dropped by a few times on her way to and from Logan and affirmed that it was a good move.

Thank you everyone that helped!

Christmas Activity

On monday night Robin and I went to see Christmas Street with my Parents. It was a great time! My parents Are Freakin Sweet! Plus we had dinner at Macaroni Grill.
My Parents have not missed a year yet going to see this crazy lit up street since moving to Farmington. I have only been there maybe twice during those years.(I'm kind of a stick in the mud) After Christmas Street we drove around for 15 min. looking for the street with the christmas story posted up in peoples yards. Well we found it just down the street from our starting location. But it was a lovely ride in the car anyway with Robin repeatedly telling me to roll up my window and me telling her, the window was giving me a headache!(eheheh im funny)
