We made it!

After our 7 day road trip, we finally arrived in New Hampshire! Some of the key players on the trip were my mom, Adam's mom, and my brother Clark. We are so glad that they came and for ALL the help! We have unpacked and are actually almost organized. It's been fun exploring a new city and entire area and figuring out where to grocery shop, etc. So far we love it!


Here's a rundown of the road trip:

The night before we left we went to ice cream with all the gang. We will miss them so so much!! We love you all and can't thank everyone for all of their help!




Our trusty moving man! We were so blessed to get everything to New Hampshire in one piece.


My late grandfather's cottage in Wisconsin. It was so fun to get back for a visit and to see my Uncle Scott and Aunt Robyn and cousins. We used to go every summer as kids and I haven't been back since 2000.








Adam's sister, Jamilyn, was able to meet us in Kirtland. She came down from Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was so good to see her!


The sacred grove in Palmyra, New York which is in Adam's mission!


After arriving in New Hampshire, we didn't waste any time to begin sight seeing. We have been to Boston, Lexington and Concord, and I finally made it to Maine! I have dreamed of seeing it for a long time.

That WAS a fun trip. I still think you are on an extended vacation so haven't broken down yet. It was fun to do all those side trips along the way. I'm glad that you are all settled in. That's half the battle. Love you all.

That lighthouse looks amazing. I wish I could have tagged along for a few more days. But Kirtland was fun. Thanks for including me in your adventure.
