Fun Fact
Did we mention there have been 5 fires up Rose Canyon this summer (4 lightning caused and 1 artillery shell sparked from the guys firing over the hill at Camp Williams) -- all of them in High Country Estates.  Wow, do we know how to pick a place to live!

Gabe and Desiree have already made their mark on the house.  There's a little heart with their initials in it , in the cold room.  (But you know what, their initials are the same as ours!)

Fun Fact

Did we mention that we have a really cool outside faucet?  It runs both hot and cold water.  It's a brand new thing, and the plumber says we are the second house in Utah to get one!

Fun Fact

We decided to put the Condo up for sale in mid-July.  Before it even got to the Multiple Listings we had two buyers offering everything we wanted.  One was an investor looking to rent--it was perfect.  We could rent back until we got the house done.  So we took it. On Aug 14, we became technically homeless, as we became renters instead of home owners.
