Well we are officially moved!!! Life is definitely better with that behind us! When we moved into our house in Provo, we had just gotten married and only had a couple of bags of clothing..... surprisingly we accumulated a ton of stuff in the past 3 years!!! Fortunately, we had our cousins, Kelly and Amie Miller, and my parents there to help us poor kids out. It was an extremely long day getting everything packed, driving the couple of hours up to Logan, and then unloading the whole she-bang, but the troops were wonderful and everything went fairly smoothly.

We will now turn around and head to Canada for a week, Seattle for a week, and finally the Oregon coast for a week! This is the Crawford family tour of the Northwest, so life will definitely be fun. I will post pics when we get back.

The 4th of July!!!

Well, I finished up my training in Logan and we immediately headed down to Alamo, NV for the 4th of July. What a weekend! This weekend was one of the best 4th of July's I have had in a long, long time! So many people to visit with and so many fields to set on fire! (Yes, there were a couple of fires on our ranch due to the pyrotechnics of a few people! What 4th of July is complete with out a good scrambling for a garden hose?!) So many wonderful moments this weekend

The 4th of July always makes me realize how lucky we all are to live in this wonderful country. I've lived and visited a lot of different countries and I still love the good 'ole US of A. There is a wonder in traveling and seeing the sites of the world (Who doesn't love Spain and Italy? ;), but the calm assurance of peace, freedom, and our beautiful country always wins by a mile. I am so grateful for our freedoms and those people who protect those freedoms for us. God Bless America!
