We have not had internet since we moved up to Flagstaff! I was going crazy! It was amazing how much I really rely on the internet... Anywho, we have arrived and are settling in. Flagstaff is beautiful! Our apartment backs up onto an open field and meadow and mountains and trees! And we are so lucky to live in a unit that walks RIGHT out onto a grass lawn and a playground. Can't wait till Gabe is old enough to appreciate that! We LOVE our ward! Very lively and energetic bunch they are! Nate is getting used to his new branch but is sad that he doesn't have any super close friends right off the bat like he did at his last branch. Pros and cons of Flagstaff for me: Pros- Joanns, Target, trees, grass, cooler temps. Cons- Purina dog food factory right next to our house= want-to-die smell, insane freeway system, no Costco, no Tader Joe's, Sams Club pizza. Enough chatter, time for pictures!
So happy to be in his new room!

Home, sweet home!
A fairy ring!
Hm... creepy looking fairy

But now that we are more or less settled in, I'll hopefully be posting more frequently! Yay Flagstaff!

very cute fairy ring (and fairy!) Love your new place! I'm glad you guys are doing well. At least you have the holyland (Target), but no Costco is a bummer.

Glad to see a post again. Looks like you are doing well. Gabe is darling. I can't imagine living by a dog food factory, do you dream about jerky all night?
