Work and Play

For the past two weeks we have been building a patio for Peter's parents. I must say it was quite the project and took a lot of manual labor. Luckily I have a super smart and handy husband who does very well with these kinds of things. I never knew how much work it took to build what seems like such a simple patio but it was a good learning experience and hard work just makes us stronger right? Well... at least after the soreness wears off.

Here is the finished Product! We are super proud of how it turned out and we are really excited to have a Labor day BBQ on it! I love reaping the benefits of hard work.

Also we babysat some of our super cute nieces and nephews for a week while Peter's brother and his wife went on an anniversary vacation together. They have the sweetest three kids and we had so much fun spending time with them. Especially since usually we are so far away and we hardly ever get to see them!

It was so cute to see Peter with them, he is definitely going to be a really good dad someday. They just adore their "Uncle Peter!"

Training for our half marathon is still very much in progress. Since before now I have not spent a whole lot of time in Charlotte I don't know my way around very well. Peter was on the Cross country team in High School so he knows lots of running trails. One day I was going running by myself so Peter drew a little map on my arm so I wouldn't get lost. I felt like such a little kid! But it was pretty funny and actually a pretty good idea, hey I didn't get lost! So it worked out pretty well!

These last few pictures are just some fun ones of what Hibbards do best, having fun!

Girls just wanna have fun!
Sister- in- law bonding! Gotta love it!

I know I have not been keeping up with my blog lately but it's because there has been so much going on! First of all we have moved out of our apartment in Rexburg and we are spending the summer in North Carolina with Peter's family. We have been having so much fun with them. Last week Peter's dad was deployed so there was a lot going on with that, most of the family was in town and we all made the best of the situation and had a great time together.

Last week Peter and I also house sat for a family while they went on vacation. This family lives in a neighborhood where everyone flies their own personal plane or helicopter to work everyday, crazy huh!? I have definitely been getting a whole new taste of culture living out here for a little and I love it! I'm just sitting here taking it all in! Peter has a full time job so he wakes up early everyday and goes to work. We are so grateful that he has been able to find work for the short amount of time we will be here.

After this summer we will be moving to Yakima, Washington where Peter will be doing an internship with my uncle. We are so excited for all of these great opportunities being thrown our way and can't wait to see where they take us!
