Caution: A long Story

So we moved. 
Tanner finished sitting for the bar the end of July.  We couldn't hang around so we quickly began to pack up... Or so we thought. 

It was a LONG weekend.
We had reserved our U-Haul online for a 17' truck... However, they called us the day before to inform us they did not have a truck for us in Moscow. 
We could drive the 120 miles round trip to pick up a truck that was 14'.

No thank you!

I told the guy we would wait for something to be turned in.  Tanner naturally started to panic and said I needed to call him back and reserve that truck for us.  So I did, and we drove down and picked it and the car dolly up. 
Well, our stuff didn't fit.  With lots of debating, sweet and thirst we ended up leaving a PILE of stuff by the trash dumpster.  We're talking a bike trailer/ stroller, wicker baskets, media center, Leather couch, foot spa, cleaning products, totes... the list was pretty sad. 

At 9pm we finally drove out of town, Tanner in the U-Haul pulling the jeep {PACKED with stuff} and I had the 2 girls and our dog in the car.  Our plan to stay the night in Coeur d' alene. 
When we pulled into town I was very ready for bed...
However, there were no openings at ANY of the hotels there. 
So we kept driving.  Every town we went through we looked for a room, with NO luck.  Finally when we got to Missoula we called 5 different places and found a room.  We all were so tired by the time we finally got into bed.  The next day was good we were able to drive the rest of the way to Rexburg and get ready to start unpacking. 

I wish that was all the troubling news about this move. 
But it's not... While Tanner and I were trying to figure out which pieces to keep and trash Taya decided her hair was "in her face." 
So she happily found the scissors and gave it a nice cut. 
Thankfully it wasn't bad.  She simply feathered her hair out.  But it made it look very thin. 

Both girls really needed hair cut.

My cousin is an Awesome stylist!

All the wispy pieces are Taya's handy work.
It's cute though.

Paigee was very due for a cut as well. 

Such a clean sweet look.

I never want to move again...
