Moving Day

Moving from Ames, Iowa to Murray, Utah.

We had so many people come and help pack everything in the moving van and our cars.  Mary and Scott came as well to help.  We ate pizza afterwards.  Then once everyone left except Matt Burnham, and Scott Johnston and his son.  Then we realized we forgot to pack the motorcycle.  So they unloaded a view things we left behind, and lifted the motorcycle up on a metal tool box.  
Then Aaron went to go get the gas can, and opened it up to see how much gas was left.  The gas container was pressurized and exploded all over his face and into his eyes.  Mary came rushing up stairs where I was cleaning yelling, "Aaron got gassed. Aaron got gassed."  The gasoline was burning his face, and his eyes.  We packed all of our stuff up, so he went to Matt's house to rinse off his face.  Aaron went to the ER.  His eyes were not permanently damaged. They gave him eye drops.
The next day we started to travel and he only could fully see in only one of his eyes while he drove the moving truck.

 Goodbye Ames, Iowa.  I wouldn't think I would miss you so much!

Aaron's Graduation

Aaron's Graduation

Aaron and I moved to Iowa in 2009 for him to go to ISU for his Architecture Degree.  I worked while he went to school, while raising Isabel and Cade.  There were long days and nights for both of us.  Now it all paid off!  He is done with his schooling, and is pursuing an Internship to be a licensed Architect.  Aaron's family came to his graduation.  It was a great ceremony!  

 The Original Oesterle Family!!

Mary and Scott were a great help during out time in Ames.  They lived in Rochester MN.  Even tho they were 3 hours away.  They still came down in times we needed.  We love them.

Aaron made quite a few friends.  No one compared to his friends Brad, Chelsea, Shraddhesh.  Brad was there everyday in the hospital with Aaron after surgery, and helped him with his work while he missed.  Chelsea and Shrad was always a help when needed.  And he really enjoyed teaming up with any of the three.  The kids loved Chelsea and Shrad.

Uncle John Shaw was able to come to his graduation as well.  He gave Aaron a Capital of a Column of a Church that was given to him after he graduated from Architecture School.  

 I set up Aaron's graduation party at the church.  It took me all night, but it was worth it! The kids loved seeing all the models.

Aaron and his Grandpa!  It was always fun to drive up to see his grandparents to get away from the college scene and be with them.

Cade and Rudy

March! and Spring Break!!

The kids love bath time.  They get a long better now than before. They still do have their moments. 
 Crazy hair
 We went to Ledges Park, in Boone Iowa with a few families in the ward.  The roads were blocked in the middle of the park, so we hiked down the trail so the kids could play in the freezing shallow water.  Yes, ice chunks would float by occasionally.  They all had a blast, why stop them from having a great memory.. Oh I can think of one, frost bite. yeah

 That same weekend, we went to the Omaha Zoo one last time.  I felt like it would be probably, since we most likely will be moving after May.  Cade and Isabel really enjoyed it!! There is so much more to see at this Zoo.  It was such an amazing day too, great weather.  I had to watch Cade like a hawk.  He wouldn't want to stay in the stroller the whole time, and wanted to see everything!! He is really talented in maneuvering in between people in a crowd.  He could stand up for him self, and push his way up to the front glass view of the animals.  Isabel was interested in the animals more than before. She asked more questions, and studied the animals.

 Our first Circus Experience!!  We went to Des Moines to see the Circus.  They had tigers, huge Elephants, and pretty cool acts.  The kids got in for free.  The announcer kept pushing the parents in the audience to buy the $15 light up sticks for the kids. ahah and the $ 7 balloons, etc.  Isabel and Cade did really well. I was surprised.  The circus started at 7 pm.  It didn't end til 10 pm. We went with the Bunderson family that are in our ward, and our neighbors.

 There was a transformer at the Circus also.  Cade knew what it was and wanted to take a picture with it.  Of course it was $10 to do so.  So we saw him from a distance.
  A clown embarrassed me that night. There were a group of them, and they saw me, and one of them yelled over and over again really loud: " Look its Brittany Spears! LOOK!" Of course everyone around turned and looked at me.  Jan my friend thought it was hilarious.  I was beat red, and tried to avoid the attention.  To be honest, it takes a lot to embarrass me, so this surprised me that it did.  Probably since I wasn't expecting it.
