Hello, Missouri!

Dear Friends,

We have just our internet hooked up, and wanted to let you all know that we arrived here in Kansas City safe and sound. We arrived last Sunday and were blessed with lots of help unloading the moving truck; my mother-in-law even had a homemade lunch waiting for us!

 Here are some pictures of the sights we saw along the way from Idaho to Missouri~

First, of course, we picked up Mr. Graham at the bus stop and brought him home for a happy reunion!

Then we packed up the truck (which Grandpa Graham graciously offered to drive), and said goodbye to Idaho~

And hello to Wyoming, where we stayed our first night after traveling all day.

Lil' Button Nose was beginning to think that this trip was a life sentence!

Here we are catching up to the truck!

Good thing some of us packed our swimming clothes!
Goodbye, Wyoming your pronghorns, oil fields, and wind turbines. . .

 Hello, Nebraska with endless cornfields and lots of little windmills!

Nebraska is home to many Mormon historical landmarks (Unfortunately we didn't have time to stop and see many of them)~

Mormon Island had a maple with the biggest leaves we've ever seen!

 We just touched the border of Iowa for a miles, before seeing. . .

A welcome to our new home state!

The hills were still beautiful, even though many of the leaves had already gone.
So here we are, with all the of the joys of settling into a new home. Our home is an older home with lots of character, which is a big change from our bigger, but manufactured home in Idaho (which is still for sale, if anyone is interested ;) ). We'll be sure to take some pictures of our new place to share with you next time. Until then, dear friends, be blessed and have a wonderful day.

  7. Welcome Marqueta, you must be overjoyed and relieved to be in your new home after such a long wait. I took out my atlas and traced your route across the States. Phew! That seems like a long way to drive. I very much like to see these places as it makes it all seem nearer somehow, so thanks for the photos. Your new home sounds lovely. I shall look forward to some pics when you're setted in. Take care. Eli x

  8. I'm so glad you made it safely to your new home, and that the move is now behind you! I so look forward to reading of your new adventures in Missouri.
