The Most Exhausting Week of My Life!

So this past week I rode up to Utah with my mom and sister and brother. We dropped my brother back off at his apartment in Provo and took my sister to EFY at the U of U which has the most amazing campus. My mom and I spent the next three days in the car from 9-5 literally just circling Provo trying to find housing for Jesse and I in the fall. I had the realization that Provo is nothing like Rexburg. In Rexburg you can find good apartments for decent rent each month...NOT the case in Provo. There are crappy apartments for a lot of money a month. Not to mention that we were late on the draw so most of the married housing was taken. We finally found an apartment at the end of the week. It is called The Brittany which is so appropriate I think. The apartment is definitely ghetto, but I'm excited to make it our own and make memories there. I figure it will be fun to look back and tell our kids about the poor days. At the end of the week we decided to take a break from looking for housing and site see. We went to temple square and rafting down the Provo river which was so much fun. It was blazing hot there so we got sun on the raft and Travis got a good workout since he did most of the rowing.

P.S. on our trip down the river there were tons of waterfalls on the mountains above us, which Jesse and I are going to hike to in August when we go up to school. Can't wait! Oh and the grid system is terrible and I know I will spend a lot of my time in Provo getting lost.
