I am really bad at blogging. I think it has been over a year since my last post. As most of you know a lot has happened. I will break this up so it is not too much. Back in January 2011, Craig was offered a job as a LE Park Ranger in the Valley of Fire. With an extensive background and several tests, Craig was hired in March. As part of being hired, one of the job requirements was to live at the park. So now the Valley of Fire is our new home and we have a lakeside view.
At the top of the hill!
We moved our family here in May. Our neighborhood consist of 5 homes, 4 in which are rangers and 1 as the regional mechanic. We love our cute neighborhood. The kids love it out here. They're always going outside and exploring, taking hikes on the hill behind us, collecting rocks and sticks, finding all kinds of animals, birds and bugs. So far we have seen: snakes, lizards, roadrunners, eagles, coyotes, big horn sheep, random cats, ground squirrels (which I can't stand), rabbits, quail, mice and many more. I tell the kids
all the time, they have the biggest backyard.
