Home again, home again, jiggity jig

We're home.
We've been movin' and groovin' for the past few weeks, and we are now home and digging out.

I left you all hanging on our weekend to Jackson, WY... It was incredible!!! We had so much fun! The wedding was lovely, despite the rain, and the family and friends we met out there were fabulous! Jake and I had so much fun together- we danced, walked and laughed together... Not to mention our first (not last) trip down the Snake River whitewater rafting! (Photos to come tomorrow!) What fabulous memories! We are thrilled to have Cori in the family... And it's awesome to see Jonathan so happy.

While we were gone the kids spent time with Grandma and Papa K. They, too, had a great time. They visited a zoo, got huge ice cream treats, saw great grandparents, took bike rides and walks and just got to enjoy being with Grandma and Papa. I zoomed across the state to fetch them upon our return and got back home just in time to prepare for our garage sale...

A friend asked if I'd be interested in doing one, so we jumped into the "City-wide" weekend only to put in hours of work and get poured on. It wasn't a total loss, SHE did pretty well... I made enough for a tank of gas. (almost)

Jake had one last inservice day on Monday, then we jumped in the van and headed camping. We visited Governor Dodge State Park, a new one for us, and had beautiful weather! It was hot enough to enjoy the beach, and didn't rain until we were headed out the next morning. We visited "The House on the Rock" and got home late.

So that brings me to the present. We spent the whole day unpacking and washing and shoveling out of an extraordinarily messy home. I think the floor has been found in every room now- no small feat, I assure you! We've enjoyed our adventuring immensely, but are grateful to be home.
