Busy, Busy, Busy and A Whole Bunch of Pictures

Has it really been a month since I've blogged?!
So disappointed in myself, I promise you (those that still follow my blog) I truly have good intentions. 

Well, this past month has been a whirlwind to say the least!

Dave finally started his job at the Durango Airport, he has made a total of 4 driving trips just to Durango. Only one was round trip. He is liking his job at the tiny airport. He says living in a 5th wheel trailer is "OK". Living in a trailer has made me realize how much we have to be grateful for, and how much we have been blessed with.

I was hoping my time in Lubbock was going to be a little more laid back, but due to the short staff at work I worked A LOT! 
I thank my friends the Glovers for letting me stay with them. And putting up with me coming in sometimes at 3 in the morning after work.

I was able to get time in to visit some people, not everyone that I was hoping to get to see before I left. For those I missed I am truly sorry, I will be back to visit!

Here are some pictures of what's been going on in our lives over the past couple months.

We ran in our Stake's Fun Run over Memorial weekend.

Dave's parents came to visit. They spent Memorial weekend and Bonnie's birthday with us. It was great to have them come out and see what Lubbock is like.

We did a lot of sitting on the back deck to watch those beautiful West Texas sunsets.


I want this on a wall in my house someday!

We drove to Colorful Colorado to check out Durango. Cosmo wasn't too impressed with the state.

Went home to Utah for our friends, Nick and Alya Elliott's wedding.

Dave and Adolyn

I went to the 4th of July parade with my good friends the Bradshaws.

We went to the Glovers for a 4th of July BBQ and fireworks.

Mr. Blue Eyes

This picture turned out fuzzy, but I was able to visit Ray and his horse in training Reno. I am going to miss this kind man who was so willing to teach us more about horses and horsemanship.

I got to enjoy one more girls night!! Thank you Mindy for hosting it, I will miss you ladies!!

We went up to Manassa, Co to visit the Glover family. Dave went fishing and the only thing he caught was the beaver that was swimming in the lake.

Look at that cute little baby all snuggled in! You sure got a cutie of a kid, Shayla!

Got some delicious homemade Amish donuts in Manassa.

It's so green in Colorado. I have almost forgotten what this color looks like, I am so use to brown and dead.

I love my West Texas sunsets, but this Colorado sunset over the lake is just gorgeous!! You just can't beat scenery like that.

I got to hang out one more time with these two wonderful ladies!

The company I worked for will not be operating the United flights out at the airport any more, so I had to say goodbye to my home away from home and my work family. I didn't get pictures of everyone, it was a very hectic last day for everyone.

It has been a busy, busy month/months. Even as we speak, I have yet to make it to Durango. I am sitting in a hotel room in Denver for training for the new job I got with Sky West Airlines. 
I am grateful for the extra time I did get to see some of the wonderful people I have met in Lubbock. Thank you to all of you that fed me, hung out with me, everyone that offered their never ending hospitality, and the Glovers for letting me crash at their house for a month! 
To you all, I am truly, truly grateful and deeply touched to know that so many people care about us. 
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
