Four weeks ago, we arrived back at ‘home’ in Lehi, UT to sell our house and all of our stuff, as well as do a remodel on the bedroom to put in twin beds for the kids. We’ve sold lots of stuff, are wrapping up the paperwork on the house, and the beds are almost complete (with the exception of custom made quilts that weren’t quite finished). Knowing it would be crazy, Jess had a flash of inspired brilliance before we even arrived back in Utah. She planned a 2-3 week tour through some of Southern Utah’s State Parks to give us a break from the logistics. Time to recoup, slow down, spend more time together, and test out all our fancy new toys and equipment.
Moving back into the Airstream wasn’t much fun. Clothes, food, bedding, electronics, and everything else random had to be moved from one house to the other. It’s taken us the better part of the last three days to load and organize and today we (finally) left!
About 90 minutes south on I-15 landed us in Yuba Lake State Park. In just a few hours, we had returned to our happy place. The kids love their new bedroom. Dinner was awesome. We spent an hour walking along the lake shore, skipping rocks. Then, while doing dishes, I witnessed the most beautiful moonrise over a lake that I have ever seen.
Even if only for two weeks, we are glad to be back on the road.
