moving check list

The countdown has started for our move to Austin, 10 weeks! We are starting to check things off our moving to-do list.
  • Book moving company
  • Sell Provo apartment contract
  • Find an apartment in Austin
  • Find a job for me!
  • Clean out/get rid of things we don't need (I am loving this process) 
I am excited to explore a new place, everyone says it is so pretty!
 Anyone have connections for a public health related job in Austin? I feel like I was just looking for a job and now I am at it again, fun times. On the upside we found a reasonably priced moving company that is going to move everything for us, so that we can enjoy our Christmas in Lodi. I am so happy that we won't be driving a moving truck on Christmas Eve!

My parents and Emma came up for our church's General Conference two weeks ago and then afterward Megan and I were able to go with them to Arches National Park in Moab. It was so great to be with my parents and Megan and spend more time with Emma, the best sixteen  year old I have ever met. Sadly Chance could not get time off from his clinical rotation and the Eliason family didn't want to attempt the 12 hour drive with Lily (I have no idea why).
She looks so innocent!
 Anyway it was a wonderful trip! Here are a few pictures.
The fam at Dead Horse Point. I don't like how it got its name, but it was beautiful.

yoga and high kicks on cliffs
balance rock
Delicate Arch, my personal favorite. I feel complete now that I have seen the inspiration for Utah license plates, I never quite appreciated them before.
Last day in Moab by the Colorado River, we saw dinosaur fossils!
Thanks Mom and Dad for a fun getaway to one of God's beautiful creations. I love you!
