It wasn't our first choice of places to move, but I think we're both excited. I'm excited to try out a new job and eat every day at Waffle House. Cassi is excited to quote Gone With The Wind non-stop. And Greycoat is excited to meow with a Southern accent.

Loved seeing this too!
Kelly is in Vegas for 18 days, which is much better than Afghanistan. I get to see him next weekend too. He is working Green Flag with the fighter squadron, which will give him some good experiences. I hung out with my not-so-little sister Meesa (she is going to BYU) last night and today. We had fun going out to dinner and chatting. She is so beautiful and grown up!
We put in our list to PCS this week. Kelly’s commander forgot to submit it on the day it was due (great), but he got it in two days later with a good recommendation. Some of the places are UK, Denver, Florida, West Virginia, Nebraska, San Antonio, and many others. We aren’t holding our breath for the UK, but we’d love it. We will like any place, though. It'll be an adventure. We’ll keep you posted!

Also, Kelly likes his new squadron. He has better hours (so far), which we were not expecting. He also gets to research current intelligence and present it to pilots, which has always been the favorite part of his job.
The two of us are adjusting to me working. Kelly has been very helpful with the housework, landry, dishes, etc, since I am no longer home all day. Tomorrow we take our first dive together since I started taking scuba. It is at the Crater in Heber City. I am a little nervous, but I need to do this to become certified. I am glad Kelly is coming.
In other news, two weekends ago we went to Huntington State Park and Price,UT for a Wood Family Reunion. The Lake reminded me of Caballo and I felt nostalgic. We had a blast. All of Kelly's brothers and families were there. They came from CA, South Africa, New Mexico, UT, and Boston. Below are some pix.

Stupid blogger.com cuts off the right side, but I think it still gets the message across. Anyone know how to make the blog wider?

Happy 27th Year of Life, Kelly!
I don't know how those turned into "firsts"
Today, Kelly may receive his first gun. I am a little nervous about the prospect. This is why we have been talking about it for a few months. It is rare for us to do things spontaneously, especially not a gun purchase. But hey, what is the point of being in the military if you can't have a gun of your own?
Our cat brought a dead mouse to the door yesterday, which is a sign of love and that she is trying to impress us. I guess she knew it was his birthday. It was too gross to take a picture, but you get the idea. I am grateful that Kelly is here and that we are married in the temple forever. I am grateful he has the priesthood. And, I am grateful we can both have nerdy interests (Harry Potter, WWII, Axis and Allies, Rockband, cats/animals, etc.). So, Happy Birthday Kelly!

Yeah, it has been sometime since we have posted...woops. Blogging is kind of like journal writing. You want to do it and you know what you should/want to write about, but when you don't for whatever reason, it is overwhelming to catch up and so you avoid it for a while. The good news is I finally got journal writing down! Here are some random pictures/info from what Kelly and I have been up to.
Even though we aren't parents, Kelly made me a mother's day meal and such. It was very sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed having Kelly cook b/c I learned how he likes to prepare food. Normally, we cook together or I cook (I like to and I have no job).
Our family picture with our cat, Greycoat or the Coat, or Coto. She kept me company while Kelly was deployed. Kelly insisted on putting this picture in our ward directory, so people probably think we are obsessed with our cat...It was more funny to us than anyone else, probably.
The Hakes' siblings-we'll get Chris next time. :)
Almost the whole gang. I love how Julia is looking at Dad's (Grampa's) facial expression and not the camera, which is what he was trying to get the kids to do.
Kelly's two nieces-a very tired Lucy and a cute Ginny. I like Karl's (Kelly's dad's) smile in this photo.
Our lovely lilies are blooming! Now if I could just get our tomato plant to do something. I don't think our little balcony gets enough sun.
Wooh, that was a lot of info! One last thing is that I passed my registered dietitian exam the end of May! Now I will hopefully get a REAL job. It has been so nice to have the time to hang out with Kelly. He starts with a new squadron in a couple weeks which means he will have irregular work hours, but the job should be more interesting.
This is Kelly and I sliding down the mountain we hiked in the Alps of Grindelwald, Switzerland. It was steep and slippery, so we improvised.

Kelly couldn't resist taking this picture. The boat was full of Asians and they were waving and smiling and taking pictures of us during their ride.
Our Gondola ride. We felt like we couldn't go to Venice and not take a Gondola. Althought it was fun, it wasn't our favorite thing we did there and it was expensive. It did show us Venice up close. Our favorite thing was walking around for a couple of hours that night. The town is full of bridges and beautiful buildings which look great at night. See below.
This sums up our walk that night.

Behind Kelly on both sides are the two remaining "barracks". Behind those are rows and rows of foundations for barracks that used to be there. Inside the barracks are rows and rows of bunk beds that they were crammed into.
On a lighter note; we travelled from Munich to Salzburg the next day. Salzburg: the home of The Sound of Music and Mozart. Here is one of the homes Mozart lived in. We watched Amadeus after touring his home.
