The Alamo, Take 3

Cole's cousin Kaitlin and her husband Ryan came into town to visit from Houston. Turns out, they're also old friends with our new friends/neighbors, Valorie and Shane. We all headed down to the River Walk and the Alamo for the third time since moving here. We're going to start a collage of all the pictures we take in front of the Alamo. It was a lot of fun to see family. The next addition to the collage will be my dad when he comes and visits in a week! I'm so excited to see him.

"I got to kiss these lonesome Texas blues goodbye"-Steve Earle

I'm feeling a little homesick today...for Utah, that is. I'm missing those perfect mountains, the view for miles, the untouched, undeveloped land, and the quiet. I'm also missing friends and family. I took this picture flying into Salt Lake after a long summer away. It's the picture of Utah that I carry around in my head and that signifies homecoming to me. I'm super excited for October when we'll be going home to see Ryan, who's coming back from his mission in Tonga!

Here's a good song from a Texas native that's kinda hitting home right now.
