Our Cross Country Trip

This last month, Tim and I took a trip from Boston, MA to St. George, UT. We packed up our life in Boston, packed up the car, and headed out. We made it a long trip, seeing friends and family along the way.

Our first stop was Palmyra, NY where we were youth conference counselors for a weekend.

We then made a 2 or so hour detour to Niagra Falls... I must say, we were quite unimpressed. On the US side there is so much mist, you can't even see the falls and you can't get down very close at all without getting completely soaked. No fun.

Next, we made a quick stop in Nicholasville, KY to see BJ, Rachel and sweet little McKay, we didn't get to stay long, but it was goo to see them as always. We were stupid and didn't even take out our camera once while we were there, so this photo is stolen from a later photoshoot with them and Rachel's family.

We then made a stop in Birmingham, AL for about a week to be treated for allergies and to visit Julie, Braden, and two of the cutest girls in the world. And as chance would have it, my brother Damon had just recently moved to the same area, so we were able to spend a bit of time with him too.

After all of this we then went to 2 family reunions in northern Utah, and then FINALLY made it to St. George. All in all we were on the road for about a month. I was SO done with living out of a suitcase. It's good to be home.
