Our Many Travels

We went down to visit my family for a week on the 21st. Our anniversary was on the 19th of July so we decided to stay in Salt Lake on the way down on Monday. It was nice to have a break in the drive but as soon as we got to Logandale we jumped right back in the car to go to California with my mom. Doug had never met my grandparents or my great-grandma. So we left on Monday, stayed overnight, drove the rest of the way to Logandale on Tuesday, took an hour break, and headed down to California the same day. We stayed and visited my grandparents wednesday then jumped back in the car to go back to Nevada on Thursday. Then we stayed and played till the following monday. We went waterskiing and wakeboarding. I tried wakeboarding for the first time and crashed the hardest I've ever crashed in my life. It was a lot of fun though. We also got to play a lot of games with all my brothers and sisters. Logan (who is preparing for a mission) recieved the Melchezedik Priesthood that sunday and I was very glad we were there for it. We got home on Monday and Doug's parents asked us if we would like to Moscow, Idaho to move Brad and Traci up there (Brad is started medical school in a couple weeks). We were debating whether to go or not because they were leaving on wednesday. Finally we decided we really did want to go even if it was a 10 hour drive just to get there. So we went up there and helped them move into their new apartment. We were really happy we went. It was a lot of fun to see their new apartment and help them organize it. We got to watch Alaina be so cute all weekend and have fun with Brad and Traci, Mom and Dad, and Traci's parents. Then we got back in the car on Friday. All in all we had a great time. I only wish we could cut travelling time in at least half. I think we travelled about 50 hours in the last two and a half weeks. 9+9(Idaho to Nevada and back)+6+6(Nevada to California and back)+10+10(Rexburg to Moscow and back) yep that equals 50. I'm just glad the Boyer reunion is in Rexburg this year.

Looks like you guys are going to rival our travel hours for the summer. Except you did it all in one week! We're glad we got to see for you a minute during all of your traveling!

And...sorry about the internet and phone problems...I would be pulling my hair out!

That is a lot of traveling! We were so glad you decided to come though. We loved having you up here.

By the way, we found one cell-phone charger and your jackets so we'll send them in the mail to you tomorrow.

Wow, that is a lot of time in the car! Sounds like fun, though!

The school is the National College of Natural Medicine. It's holistic medicine and the school only offers 2 degrees, an ND (natropathic doctorate) and the Master of Science in Oriental Medicine(MSOM). I'm going for the ND, as of right now. :) I go to a doctor that actually teaches at the school. He's more like my favorite uncle than my family doctor. It's really intriguing and I've seen it bless a lot of lives. Even if I don't practice professionally, having the skills could save my family (present and future) a lot of pain, heartache and trouble, not to mention money! I'm excited!
