We Made It!

We are in California now! The trip down here was fun and we made it safely. The only close call we had was on a freeway in CA. Another truck hauling a back how shoved lost the shovel piece. The piece went flying off and almost hit a van following the truck. It was a 6 lane freeway and traffic was light enough and we were far enough back so we were able to slow down and dodge it. Now body was hurt thankfully. 
We left on Friday at noon. We spent the first part of Friday with my parents in Cedar Hills, then we got on the rode. We drove a 22ft truck and towed our car. It was fun, I have never been in a big truck for a long period at once. I felt like a truck driver travel the country. I kept singing songs like "On the Road Again" and "God Bless America" through out the trip. These songs made me feel like trucking I guess.  We got to St George in the afternoon and spent the night with Lars parents. It will be Lars birthday on the 30th so his Mom got him a cake to start off the celebration. 
Saturday we got up early to hit the rode. We left about 7:30 am and got to Anaheim at 2:00 pm. We did stop for a break every now and then. We leave in a beautiful world. God created many things to look at. Once here we filled out some paper work for the apartment and then started unloading the truck. We only had ourselves and two other people from our new ward helping us move. It took about 3 and 1/2 hours to unload. We downsized from a townhouse to a one bedroom. I thought we did good to get rid of some things, but it was apparent we didn't get rid of enough. We did get a small storage unit so that helped. The rest of the weekend was spent unpacking and getting settled in. I had to start work right away and have been working long hours (I will explain further in a future blog) so we still have some lingering boxes, but they will be gone by the end of conference weekend. :)
Our pictures of our trip and the apartment after we unloaded the truck are at the following site,
