You would think...

So, you would think that I would be a totally happy camper now because we finally got an offer on our house. We will be moving to a lovely area out of the city. The sale has been a breeze, a great new family to take our place, a quick close, lots of equity in a soft market. The fun part should start now that we get to go find a place to live. Well fun is the farthest thing from what I am experiencing right now. Aaron and I are totally at odds with the whole house thing, though I don't know why. We both want pretty much the same thing, but nothing seems to be panning out, and meanwhile we are trying to pack and be excited to move. I am SO excited to start this new chapter in our lives, and have prayed very hard about it, and am sure that we are doing the right thing and going to the right place. And Melissa, as much as I love you and am excited to be closer, the thoughts of staying with you instead of going to my new home just stresses me out. Then last night I got the "Oh sister Kunz, I am so sure that the ward would love to hear from you before you go" phone call, so on top of all the fun of packing for moving, oh and the trip that we are going on the whole week before we close, I get to prepare a talk for sacrement meeting.

I know, I know, it could be worse. Wow this blogging thing is great, I do feel better typing about it. More to come....

Fun at the Zoo times 2

I will apologize now for all of the pictures, but this is a compilation of two Zoo trips. Our first trip was with Cori, Brynlee, and Landon. We were at the zoo a total of 3 YES 3 hours, and only got down to the new Conservation Carousel. So for all you you who know the zoo...not that far. These monkeys are usually always a treat, but today they were extra goofy swinging all over the chainlink fence.
Luke is happy where ever we go!!! As long as it's outside.
Cori, Brynlee, Landon, and the annoying people next to us while waiting for the elephant show to start.
This is the new Conservation Carousel. The ride isn't long, but the animals are super neat, and most of the procedes go toward the zoos conservation projects, so for us, it's well worth the money.
Being that it was a "chilly" 101 degrees that day, the elephant show consisted of playing with a fire hose. These elephants were so cute!!! They loved the water.
Our good friend Doug is the lead elephant trainer at the zoo, and was kind enough to pose for photo's, kiss babies, the whole bit!!! We Love Doug!!! I miss Karen....
So the second time, I was suppose to work a promotion for Karson's acting school at the zoo, so Aaron decided to take the kids around the zoo for a couple of hours. Melissa and her mother-in-law Linda were there with the kids, (and the best lunch ever!!!! Thanks Linda) So we got to play with them for a while.

The tiger was of course napping, but I can never get over how big he is. BEAUTIFUL
Abby and Karson decided to use the zoo's new misters and their personnal showers.
Oh did they feel nice!!!
And finally at the end of another very hot day.......THE MELT DOWN!!!!
