Our Big Fat Georgian Adventure: Day 6

Yesterday we drive from Tulsa, OK to Birmingham, AL. It was MUCH better than Our drive from Denver to Tulsa. That drive was brown, flat, and ugly. This one was beautiful! Arkansas is such a beautiful state, an we drove it for most of the day. It was so sad though to see all of the crops still flooded and underwater from this year's late spring flooding.

We drive until Birmingham, AL where we stopped at a pretty nice hotel (for 100/night!) and got to sleep in... Now we are off to Columbus to See our new home! Pin It

Our Big Fat Georgian Adventure: days 2-5

Day 2: Christmas Eve
Every year my Dad's side of the family does a Christmas Eve dinner and present swap. We had yummy turkey, and went to the only Deseret Book in town and bought Lion House Rolls to eat. There was so much food and it was delicious!

Day 3: Christmas Day
We woke up early and Marcus opened all of his presents, and most of Astrid's too. We then went to my Grandma's on my mum's side and ate even more turkey! It was delicious. We visited a bit and then headed home to nap.

Day 4:
We went out to breakfast with my Aunt and Uncle, and had the most delicious pancakes. Cooper had a green chili eggs Benedict. Mmmmm.

e found out today that one of Marcus' toys that was going to keep him occupied was broken, so we went to return it and the store was all sold out across the state! I was so upset. We decided to try to return it at another store, and they were also sold out. We ended up driving across town to another Target and were able to exchange it for a working one there. (Can I say how much I LOVE Target recently!? They have AMAZING customer service!)

Day 5:
So, today we are starting our 24 hr. Drive to Georgia. Driving Denver to Tulsa, OK and should arrive this evening. Hopefully we can get into a place with a pool and accepts pets so we can get some energy out!

Anyway, I'm posting from my phone, so all my pics have to be at the end... So here ya go!

Our Big Fat Georgian Adventure: Day 1

This morning we rolled out of bed at Maddi's house and loaded the already packed full car up with 2 kids, 2 parents, and a kitty and started our drive to Denver. It's now 9 am and we are almost to the long highway 6 stretch to Green River, and on to Colorado. We are so glad we decided to drive today instead of yesterday... It felt so hood to just rest and have a day to get things organized and packed perfectly in our trunk. So far, our day has been pretty uneventful, see?

Bye bye house.

The movers came yesterday. Today we cleaned.

It was sad.

We are driving away from our house now. It's empty, but full of memories.

It's sad...

But on to new adventures and new memories, right? Pin It

5 years!

Cooper and I have been married five years!  Yesterday was our anniversary.  We had a great time, we went to take pictures at the chapel that we got married in, and then we went out to eat at the Melting Pot!  It was so much fun.  We took the kids and had Auntie M and Gma S come.  It was the best.  I loved spending it with family! :)

A+ guys!

Great guessing!

We are moving to Georgia! Cooper has a great job opportunity so we are taking a leap of faith! Movers are coming on the 20th... And we will be spending Christmas in Denver. Send lots of prayers our way hoping it all works out. We feel really good about this move. A few weeks ago we were at a crossroads as to where we are and where we are going next. I got a blessing from a GREAT family friend and we felt in so much peace. After the blessing, he said, "I don't like to say these things during blessings, but I gotta say, in the middle of it I got a very strong impression, you're goin to Georgia!". And that was that!

So, the Jensons are going on an adventure. We are so excited! Pin It
