Come October 8-9 we will be on our way to Moscow, Idaho!
Here are the only pictures that we took of Moscow (out the car window) as we were leaving (we were there for only 24 hours).

It is going to be a big change but I know that we will be just fine. I think I am still in denial because I haven't started packing yet. I am sure it will be a lot more work than I think it will be (like last time). It is just hard to do much because we still need the stuff because we use it (and I am still trying to find a place for us to moving into). So if you see us around town looking like this you will understand why:
(J's edit: why do I let Christina take photos of me?)
I don't know why I let Amber take my picture, especially when she asks me to make silly faces.
On to the next adventure. One awesome thing is that we will be closer (2 hours away vs. 14 hours) to the Salmon River and the rafting that comes along with it. It will be hard to say goodbye to St. George and all the friends I have made over the last 11 years but there is still email, cell phones, blogs, and Facebook to help me keep in touch. It doesn't feel right to do an entry without sharing some pictures of the kids so here you go.
What else would this purse be for!?
Nathan in J's glasses looking all smart and sophisticated.
Happy smily Elle.

Washington Fair

We went to the Washington County Fair again this year. It was our 3rd year going and I must say that I still think they should do it all indoors or at a different time of year (even though I know why need to do it in August). It was HOT. We don't go to for the rides at night - my kids don't even know that there are rides - we go in the day for the petting zoo, booths, and fair entries. My girls always look forward to it though. There is always so sort of ride or something that they get to do along with seeing all the animals that gets them excited (not to mention their friend Taylee was coming). This year it was the "walk on water" attraction. They had a blast and so did I watching them. I do wish I could have tried it myself but maybe another time.
The cute but very hot calf. I felt bad for him cooking in the sun.
Amber was the brave one that wanted to pet him.

Elle giving it a try.
This was Nathan's favorite part of the fair.
The food court with the giant panda.
The girls enjoying a yogurt we brought along for a snack. If you look close you can see that they have their face painted.
We also got to have our picture taken at the fair by yellowpix it was kinda fun and it was free. They printed off a copy and gave it to me. Here is the link if you want to check it out.
