Welcome to Arizona

Well, my Dad decided he was going to take his "mid-life crisis tour," as we've loving started referring to it. He road his motorcycle from Davis, California to Orem, Utah where he helped us pack up our stuff onto the big moving truck. He drove the moving truck towing Kyle's car while Kyle and I switched off driving my car and we headed for Vegas.

We stayed at Kyle's sister, Kjerstin's, house for a night, then went the rest of the way to Glendale, Arizona. We got into our apartment and got everything unloaded in a few hours with the help of my aunt and uncle and our new friend Jeremy. We almost lost the couch off the second floor stairs, but we managed to get everything in ok. PHEW! My poor Dad was so worn out after it that he threw up in a bush in the Home Depot parking lot. Kyle had a massive headache for the night. We did luck out that there was a breeze. It could have been much worse.

My Dad then road his motorcycle to the Grand Canyon for a night, then went to Bryce Canyon and then headed back home. The first thing he did when he got home was to jump in the pool. THANKS DAD! You're the best!
Our new apartment complex is awesome! They have a sand beach on one end of the pool and is snakes around with some waterfalls. Oh, and there are two flat screen TVs in the cabana. We have a decent size gym which will save us some money. Oh, and we knew we got into a ritzy place when we noticed that the sand for the cigarette butts is stamped every morning with the complex logo. Wow!


  1. So jealous of the pool! You need to get some pics up of the apartment and pool now! How is orientation going?

  2. Too bad you aren't directly benefiting from the cigarette sand stamping service! (or maybe that's a good thing)

    I'm glad you're enjoying your new home.

  3. YAY! Love it! Kyle said he had a nervous tummy for orientation. =) All settled in? We're excited you're still close!

  4. OOOOOH!!!!!! I love these blogs! Please post some pictures of your apartment! I feel bad that your dad barfed :(
