I have lots to update everyone on! Life has been crazy since I last blogged and so much has happened. First, we finally moved into our townhouse! It is so wonderful to have more room and privacy compared to our first apartment. And the overall best part of the townhouse is our backyard for our dog Kalu! I have planted plenty of flowers and now that all of our stuff is moved in, it really feels like home! I will have to remember to take some pictures of our townhouse and post them as soon as I can!
Second, I finally graduated! It feels great to be done with all of the book work and study time! Now all I have to do is finish my externship hours and I am a full blown dental assistant! I am externing at Elison Orthodontics right now and I hope to be done with all of my hours at the beginning of July! Here are a few pictures of me with a few classmates, Logan, my parents and my teacher.

A few days after graduation Logan and I went down to Arizona with the family to help Logan's brother Andy and his wife Megan move into their new house. The boys did a lot of heavy lifting and the girls did a lot of painting and decorating while it was 110 degrees outside! By the end of the week we were all tired and ready to get out of the heat. The best part about it all was getting the chance to go to the Pheonix Zoo. I have never been to a big zoo before so it was really fun and exciting to see so many new animals. I loved it! Here are some pictures from the zoo!

On our way into the zoo, the infamous Annie Cooper took this photo for us, there is also a funny thing that happened while she took this photo, but I don't have enough time to explain it all.

My nephew Makoy had a blast at the zoo, especially in his fancy new hat that his mom and dad bought for him!

Logan in front of the otter exibit!

Makoy and I in front of the baboon exibit! It was one of the best exibits because the baboon came right up to the window to see us!

As you can see, Logan loved the big lizard exibit!

We had a lot of fun in the monkey exibit! We got really close to some spider monkeys and then got in trouble for giving them some flowers to play with. The monkeys seemed to enjoy the flowers but the zoo keepers weren't very happy with us! You can just call us the zoo criminals!!

The Pheonix Zoo was so fun and I can't wait to go to a big zoo again! Hopefully the next time we go it won't be 109 degrees outside! This is all I have time to blog for now but I will be sure to let you all know when something exciting happens again!
