We celebrated the 4th of July in North Ogden for their Cherry Days. Porter & Hudson participated in the Children's Parade first thing in the morning. They decorated their bike & scooter for it.

This spring, we decided to put our house on the market. We had the intention of eventually moving to Utah to be closer to my family. Brandon has been wanting a change in his job, so it just made sense to make the move! We thought we would have a lot of time, because we would be waiting on our house to sell. Well, we put our house on the market on May 8th. That day, I had a call to set up a showing for the next day at noon (I was still teaching preschool!) So May 9th right after preschool, the kiddos & I went to Subway to pick up lunch then headed to the splash park in Gervais for water fun & a picnic. Later that evening, I had planned to do some shopping while Brandon stayed with the kids. He was planning on camping out in the backyard with them. Well, while I was out, Brandon called me & told me I better come home quick because we had an offer on our house!!! Our realtor was heading over, also. So my shopping trip was cut short, but it was worth it because the people offered $4,000 more than we were asking! We were shocked! We figured it would have been a low-ball offer. We obviously took the offer (duh!) and filled out the paper work that night to sell our house! We still can't believe we sold our house in ONE DAY!!!! That's unheard of! We feel soooooo blessed that not only were we able to sell our house that quickly, but to be able to make a good amount of money on it for a down payment on our next house!
So fast forward to June 29th which was our moving day. In between May 9th & June 29th was just a blur. I have just been busy packing & getting ready for this move. That's why I haven't been very good at keeping my blog updated. But I think I have a pretty good excuse:)
Here's our moving truck. We had to add a trailer to it to fit in all our stuff.
Here's some pics of the trip:
Brody got the first turn riding in the big truck!
After we dropped Brandon off at the air port, we went to a block party in my parent's neighborhood. It was do much fun! They had water balloons with a big sling shot...

Sorry I have been MIA! A lot has been going on & more on that in another post, but in the mean time, school ended & summer has started!
I had my end-of-school preschool party. The invites we're butterflies since we had butterflies in our classroom this year. I made these cute water bottles for my kids filled with treats & kool aid that say "Have a KOOL summer!" And the cutest butterfly cupcakes!
