Memorial Day Week

While Seth was at work, I packed up all our decorations in preparation for our first haul toward the big move back to Wyoming.
 
Lots of bundling...
 
After moving thirteen times, I've learned it is better that I do the "nice stuff".
 
Even if it gives me bruises as if I'm beaten because I have no upper body strength and the moment.
 
We took this first haul over the day before Memorial Day.
 
On Memorial Day, we visited the girls, and got to put flowers by their grave for the first time.

 
We were so out of it almost two years ago, that we completely spaced bringing their flowers.
 
Thank you to all who remembered my sweet girls on Memorial Day.
 
I hope your Memorial Day was a good one.

All my kids.
 The next day, after house-hunting from dawn until dusk, we went to a circus!!
 

 
First time for all of our immediate family except Seth.
 
 We picked a great spot as far as the performance went!

 
Check out how close those elephants are!

 
Porter especially enjoyed it.
 
Porter spent the majority of the rest of the week, while we continued our housing stuff, playing in the back yard, going to parks, and swimming in the small pool with his cousins. 
 
 
He was so happy playing so hard that he didn't want to come back home!

Lilia was adorable and happy as long as she was getting what she wanted (like usual).
 
Mama got to hang out with her quite a bit, and I think they both enjoyed that.
 
 
The trip was way fun and completely successful!
 
I think we may have set a record in home-buying history.
 
We found a house in two days!

As of right now, we have no neighbors on our side of the street, but we are just fine with that after sharing walls, floors, and ceilings for the past seven and a half years.
 
So excited!!
 
To end the week, we had Stake Conference with Elder Bednar presiding.
 
I love listening to him speak.
 
He has a gift, and I always learn something.
 
I was lucky to have him as president at BYU-I when I was a freshman.
 
Wonderful ending to a great week!
 
Wish I had taken more pictures, but we weren't "resting" much...

I am so happy you were able to visit your girls. Now you can stop by all the time! Such a blessing. And I can't wait to see the cuteness inside the house! Lucky!
