Life in Des Moines

I have not posted an entry in over a year now.  Shame on me.  Catching up on everything that has happened in this entry would be too daunting a task to even contemplate, so i will just sum it up.  Last July, I took a new job in West Des Moines and we have been enjoying life in a more urban environment.  Eliza is happy, healthy, and very strong.  Lillia is 4 and is still a charmer.  She has wonderful social skills and is getting very good at drawing and coloring.  I like my job, but traditional office life is making me fat.  Janell is happy, but very busy with her new calling in the relief society.  I have been able to cut down my hours to spend more time at home, but it is still challenging.  We bought a house in October and have dug our heels in.

We still miss Saipan. Sometimes terribly.  But we really like it here.   I have posted a few pics below.


Omaha Zoo


Last week we went to the Omaha Zoo.  SOme say it is even better than the San diego zoo.  The layout is better, but there are not as many animals.  I wouldn’t say better, but it is an outstanding zoo.
