This month started out our journey on our home building adventure. This is the month we put our house on the market, signed papers with our builders to begin building our new home and shared our exciting news with all our friends and family!!
The month of June started and ended with fun trips throughout Oregon. We started the month by spending a weekend in Kah-Nee-Tah with two of our best friends. Their twins were due in August (ended up being born in July) so it was fun to take one last baby-free trip together! The month ended in Sunriver where we spent a long weekend with my parents running a half marathon, going for bike rides, playing games, and going kayaking! Summertime is so much fun in Oregon and I was so glad we got to take both of these trips this past year!

Each year, our July kicks off with a week at the Rodeo in the next town over with all of our family and friends. This is a tradition that we have had for at least the last 10 years, and I look forward to continuing the tradition for years to come. We enjoy going to the shows at the rodeo, watching the 4th of July parade and the fireworks, and spending some evenings out with friends! It wouldn't feel like July for us without the Rodeo and all of our friend time!
We finally sold and closed on our first home, finished packing, and moved out. It was a surreal experience to move out of the home we came home to after our wedding and honeymoon and had made so many memories in. But we were excited about the prospect of our new home and our dream becoming a reality. At the end of the month, our builder's broke ground and work on our new home began. It was such a fun experience to be able to drive by every day to see the progress and be able to make all the selections for our new home!
It's been fun to look back at the adventures and experiences we have had during the past year! Look for my last post of my loopback of 2014 on December 30th.
