We've all made it out to Bozeman!
Justin drove with Gunther and his mom over the weekend, shortening their trip down to only 2 days! I don't know how they did it? They started out on Saturday 4/2 at 4:30am, and arrived about 7pm Sunday night on 4/3. They drove through the whole state of South Dakota just barely able to hold the steering wheel because of the high winds. Somehow they pushed through and also managed not to kill each other! Gunther did great- just lounged in the back and didn't cause any trouble for once in his life!
Here's a picture of the sunrise Justin captured on the first morning at the house- Amazing!!!
I flew out on Wednesday 4/6 with Kaitlyn, and luckily we had a smooth trip! My Mom and Dad were going to Ft. Lauderdale at the same time so we were able to go to the airport all together so they could see us off! Surprisingly, we were all even on the same concourse, which was so nice! It is rare that loved ones can literally see you off as you get on a plane these days, so we were very blessed to have had that moment together! As we were getting on the plane, Kaitlyn was saying "Going to New Home... Tana-Monti." I didn't fully realize if she understood exactly what we were doing up until that point, but she definitely summed it up! After a 3 hour trip to Salt Lake City, several DVD's, and 2 packages of the Delta Biscoff cookies, we were almost there! Kaitlyn did fine besides the normal 2 year old whining and wallering. Luckily, the guy next to us had three kids and lived in Salt Lake, and took great pride in telling me all about it. I could see the excitement starting to build once we got on the tiny connector plane from Salt Lake to Bozeman. We had an hour and a half layover, which I found humorous was actually just enough time to use the restroom, change her diaper, and a grab a yogurt, banana, and a water, and board the other plane. When we finally arrived in "Tana," Kaitlyn was ready to find Daddy! As soon as we got off the plane, she was yelling at the top of her lungs, "Daddy, where are you!" and "Daddy, here we are!" It was hilarious, everybody was laughing and just kind of wondering how someone that small could be so vocal. So when we took the elevator down to baggage claim, there he was waiting for us, and she went running! Kathy caught it on camera (sort of)...
Here is the one room we have completely unpacked and set up- the Kitchen!
We are looking forward to our first weekend here together! They are calling for 4-6 inches of snow tonight, and it was snowing for most of the day today. Not sticking, but very pretty to see!!!
I have lots of good pics from visits with family and nieces over the last month to post, and will update on our jobs in the next few days as well! Have a great weekend!!
