Through July and Into August
July was a month full of so many emotions. Lots of roadtrips too. We ended up taking an unplanned trip to Idaho to visit Tony's grandma before she passed away. It was a fun weekend though of seeing our families and eating lots of good food plus a little shopping.
The next weekend was my birthday weekend and I've been badly wanting to go to Bear World up by Rexburg Idaho so we finally went! Tony's grandma had her funeral that weekend as well but Tony decided that his visit to her when she was alive was good and all the family we have seen recently at the reunion in Albion , ID so we did not go to the funeral. I was a little sad about that but it was up to him. Plus this was the only weekend we could do Bear World before Tony went to CA to start his new job.
The weekend of July 16th we took my sister and her 2 boys to Lagoon. Tony has been wanting to take my 4 year old nephew for a long time to see how he'd like it and we sure cut it close but we all went and had a blast! It was so fun watching the boys and how they reacted to rides and different parts of the park.
On Sunday July 17th, Tony kissed me goodbye and drove 9 hours to Ridgecrest, CA to start his new job in China Lake. The first week or so was training and a lot of paperwork to fill out. The next week was training videos and it was his 4-day work week so he drove back to SLC for the weekend to do stuff with me which was so much fun but of course went by way too fast.
I've stayed super busy while he has been gone. Doing more with friends, packing boxes, getting ready to host a Pinterest party, doing Questify with some new friends, movies in the park, playing Pokemon, shopping/errands...you know. The life I lead here in Utah is always full and very busy and I love it like that.
Still figuring out where we will be living in CA and there's a lot going on with that which I am posting on my private blog about. So if you have an invite to that, check it out. There's a bunch. I will probably post more about our living situation once some final decisions happen but don't worry, our long distance marriage is not going to last forever. Eventually I will be out in CA. Just hopefully not living in a cardboard box!
