Believe it or not, the first time out with the realtor to look for a home- we found our house!! Rob got off work early to see it, and we put in an offer the next day!! We closed on Dec. 31st, 2013 and celebrated New Year's Eve with sparkling cider and a game of Settlers. (excuse the low quality cell phone pictures)
Our neighbors are friendly, the ward is wonderfully welcoming, and the elementary school (good school district was in the top 3 things that we looked for) is just 3 blocks away! It even has a park down the street and a natural undeveloped area that surrounds a creek. We couldn't be more happy.
