Moving update

This has been my life the past 2 weeks...

a big cardboard mess :)

(warning picture over load...)

With such a eventual last couple weeks,  I decided to throw a last minute get together where I could say good bye to all my friends. It had been so crazy that it was nice to take a break from the above photo and do what I do best... chatting with friends :)

The next day we packed up the trucks, had a last minute doughnut, and quickly found we had too much to do so we stayed at a friends house for that night and hit the road Sunday.

Jaxon was loving the big tires and hanging out with all the neighbor kids. He loves all his "friiiiiiieeends" He will look out the window and beg mom peeaaasse, I wanna friiiiieeeeends. Oh how it tore me up to take him away from his friends.

Jaxon just eating a peach watching everyone else work. :) Rough life as a toddler. 

Don't want to go ..... you will have to pry my hands off this sign. 

When I was driving this song popped up and perked up my what was otherwise a crappy attitude about moving. 

Always fun to try and get this monster through a gas station.

A quick stop in Barstow for a Popsicle break or how Jaxon likes to call it "pop-a-cul"- oh and I cant forgot the fly in the car. Every time the fly landed on Jaxon he would burst out in tears and then I would start laughing. He would quickly say, "no funny." 

These were some great memories for me and him in the car. I was dreading the car ride but it was the first time I was able to just sit and think for a period of time so it was quite nice. 

We finally arrive with gifts and homemade lasagna from grandma... I could get use to this :)

that night the missionaries came over and helped unload our truck into my in laws garage. Then the next day Jaxon came down sick and has been sick for the last couple days. 

So there it is. I have completed my first week here and I only cried once! I have met some great women in my church to hang out with, and I only got lost on the roads twice. I miss Utah where there is only 2 freeways and everything is labeled by 1st south, 2nd south... not all these Spanish names I cant pronounce. I am however making progress, I feel that the first couple days I had a poor attitude about California but I am starting to enjoy my time here. Hopefully Jaxon will start feeling better and actually sleep through the night. Wish me luck to a healthy boy, not caring that my sons party will be lame since everything I own is in boxes, and to finding a house.
