Labor Day 2013


Labor Day 2013 was spent in Vernal. The morning of we both went to the Gym. We love the REC center in Vernal it is so nice. Probably the only thing I ;like in Vernal. We hung out and decided to spent the day as a family, We went to the park and pushed Dax on the swings. He LOVED that. He crawled around and was smiling from ear to ear. We each took turns taking him on the slide and pushing him on the swings. It was FUN. After we decided to go get some dinner and we got Yummy Costda Vida We brought it home and red boxed The Great Gatsby I was so excited to watch it. I was dying. It was amazing. All in all fun family labor spent on this blessed holiday. 
                                                          





 

Moving to Vernal April 2013

We weren't supposed to move to Vernal until June but of course life isn't always as you plan. 2 days after John started police academy in April he sprained his calf and had to drop out of POST. We were devastated and scared. John really injured himself. We went to a few different drs he was on crutches and would need Physical Therapy! Wow! We moved to Vernal shortly after because John had a promotion and needed to start right away. Vernal is 2 1\2hrs away from Utah county. It was a Small rural town. I only knew 1 person out there. I was able to stay home with Dax! We had a nice new apartment. Life was about to change. It was very hard. I was lonely I had moved away from all my family and friends. We got frozen yogurt a lot went on picnics rented a lot of movies and made the most of living in a small town. John worked a lot we fought alot because I was so unhappy. Dax was only 9 months old.we made some good friends and had bbq with them a few times. I lived at the nice new huge rec center the gym.I went everyday. Dax loved it. He was so happy at daycare. I would clean the house make dinner blog sometimes and do that everyday. I would hangout with friends sometimes but that's it. I literally made it my hell. I should of had a better attitude. We took drives a lot had picnics went camping once. It was an experience and a adventure. It lasted 5 short months we were grateful for John's promotion but happy to be moving back to Utah county. Here is our place in Vernal we lived in a really nice Apartment.

Bye Bye Eagle Mountain Hello Vernal February 2013

Well when we bought our townhouse I had no idea we would only be there for 10 months! John has interviewed for a promotion out in vernal but he didn't get it but John being ahead of the game he decided to put our house up for sale just incase. Little did we know 1 week on the MLS and 1 showing we would have an offer well over our asking price! We sold it and now had 3 weeks to pack up and find somewhere else to move too. We looked immediately. We found a darling townhouse in lehi off of thanksgiving point exit. We met the landlords and they had 10 other ppl apply so we we're skeptical but the next day they called us and told us it was ours! A few weeks later around Valentine's John boss called and told him they ended up opening up another position and we thought it through and went for it! At the time I was working full time so this allowed me to stay at home with Dax and be home with him.John would not only have a pay raise but more responsibility as a probation and parole officer. Well there was alot to do before all of this went down. We had to get out of our year lease which wasn't fun. We had to pay a lot and I was furious about it. The situation in general was hard. I had to tell my boss at Volkswagen southtowne the busiest car dealership in Utah I was their receptionist. It was bittersweet I loved everyone I worked with but I also wanted to be a stay at home mom Desperately. Everyone was understanding but sad to see me go.We ended up moving In with John's sister Stacy and her family. Only for 3 weeks because John got hurt at POST. He was doing a PT run and his calf froze up.He left and ended up on crutches and doing physical therapy a week later we moved to Vernal. Crazy how things turn out
