This whole week we have been packing like crazy. Then once we were done packing it was time to clean. Lately we have been spending the days packing/cleaning then around 5 when we decide that we cannot possibly do it anymore we go to the park and read on a blanket in the shade. It is pretty interesting when you move to see all of the crap that you have in the corners of your house. Our little once bedroom apartment appears tiny at a first glance, but it can hold a lot and we have found that out in the last couple of days. Tomorrow is the big moving day. There will be doughnuts and milk for breakfast which I find appropriate for moving day. Then we will be driving South to our new home, Provo. I find moving pretty dreadful, but now I am kind of excited to start our second year of marriage in a new town. Our new apartment doesn't have internet so I figured I would blog one last time until that got figured out. Moving is chaotic, but Logan keeps me calm and put together with encouraging smiles, and his go-to attitude. It's our last night in our apartment and we will spend it laying in bed reading interesting books. Good bye #123 and thanks for a great year.

The Monday after graduation Logan and I went on a camping trip to Yellowstone with Logan's parents Tony and Relda. We hiked around Jenni's lake and saw some amazing waterfalls and took a shuttle boat ride around the lake. We camped in Yellow Stone at Bridge Bay and did all of our cooking outside. The menu consisted of pigs in a blanket, roasted chicken, and pancakes. Relda came to Yellowstone 40 years ago to work at Lake Hotel. It is a beautiful hotel built in 1909 right on the lake. We walked through the hotel and listened as Relda told us stories of when she used to work there. Of course Logan had to get naked and jump into a large body of water while we were there. At the camp ground there were no showers so Log did he next best thing and went swimming in a river in the middle of the park. This was my first time to Yellowstone even though I have lived right next door for four years now. We saw lots of animals and went on some beautiful hikes. To end the trip we watched Old Faithful go off while eating ice cream. Big thanks to Tony and Relda for taking us on a fun camping trip.

Graduation has come and gone and it was amazing! My parents and Logan's parents were able to come up for the festivities. The graduation ceremony was bizarre, but so much fun. The next day my parents put together a big BBQ to celebrate my graduation. There was amazing food, good conversation, and excellent company. I got the idea to make cupcakes with little celebratory flags from my friend Emily. They were so cute and appropriate for the occasion. Overall Graduation was a great end to an amazing run here at BYU-Idaho. Provo here we come:)

My parents are finally here and I am finished with all of my finals. I took my last test of my Bachelor career this morning with Logan by my side. We decided to party today, by going to the lake and having an AMAZING dinner. I cannot wait for Graduation tomorrow and some more much needed family time. Here are some pics from the lake. As you can tell I was obsessed with taking pictures of Mckay:)
