We are officially Oregonians.

This is the first moment I've had to post to the blog since we got here. Things are going well, albeit slowly. It's incredibly hot here (we're talking 90's with humidity), and we don't have air conditioning, so I feel like I'm melting. James keeps getting less and less clothed. He's currently asleep on the floor in just a diaper. :) Luckily it's supposed to cool down next week, so I have hope. If the heat keeps up, I think we may just give in and buy a second window air conditioning unit for the living room (we already have one for the bedroom, but we haven't been able to set it up yet).

The trip out here went amazingly well. It didn't feel too long because we split it up into two days. James slept almost the whole way (woo hoo!). Paul was so great. He drove the truck the entire time. And the drive was gorgeous! I have a few pictures that I'll post as soon as I can find a cord for the camera. Until then, here are a couple that Kristina took:

This is our graffiti-clad U-Haul truck! It was good to us, but we were all too happy to be rid of it. ;)

And, here's an ADORABLE picture of James that Kristina took just before we left Provo.

Thanks to everyone who helped us with our move! There's no way we would have been able to do it without the help of Kristina, Diana, Paula, Brian, and the guys from the ward who helped load the truck.

More updates to come!

Yeah . . . Oregon in the summer historically never got into the 90s, ergo no one puts in AC. Very silly.

Best pic of James EVER! Does Paul start work on Monday? Tell him to take . . . luck!

I hope you got that.
