Dave's Birthday and Moscow so far

Dave's birthday was last Wednesday and we decided to go to Coeur D'Alene and look around for the day. We went and walked on the board walk and kicked ourselves for not bringing swimming suites. We watched some crazy folks jump off the cliffs and we watched a water plane land in the water! It was pretty cool!
This is us on the dock at Lake Coeur D'Alene. We both want a cabin on the lake some day. It's so beautiful!
Dave loved this boat! It was made in the 1950's! It was absolutely gorgeous.
We had a great day exploring the city and the farmer's market. We also went to Dockside restaurant and had a delicious dessert called a Gooey. It is this huge ice cream sundae. Amazing! Hope Dave had a good birthday! It was fun to spend the day with just each other!

Last Saturday we went for a drive and found Spring Valley reservoir. It's about 30 minutes east of Moscow, past Troy. It was such a cute little pond and had lots of people swimming, BBQing, and fishing. It was beautiful and we'll definatly go back and swim some time!
Here is a part of it. It was so pretty with huge lodge pole pines all around.
Dave had fun fishing. Didn't catch anything, but we had fun people watching and getting out!
A family playing on the dock. It was so fun!

It was so nice to drive around and chat with Dave. I loved it.

Moscow has been a different experience for us. We're not in Rexburg anymore. People are a lot different, school is way different, even church and missionary work is different! But we are growing accustomed to the change and starting to like the people. Everyone in our ward is super nice and we've made a few friends already!
I miss Southern Idaho very much but I am enjoying the time that Dave and I have for it to be just us! We're definitely on our own now and relying on each other has brought us closer together.
Dave enjoys school and loves his tennis class. He's really going to like it here, I think.
I've been applying for jobs like crazy. I'm up to about 6 or 7 applications now. I had one interview, but didn't get hired. We're not too desperate for a job yet, but we will be in a month or two.
We've made our little town home a home and I like it here in my home. But we do have snakes living on our front porch and we're going to have to do something about that...

We're starting to like it here and we like exploring the hills. Once and a while we'll get a crazy hair and drive all the way to Washington, just for fun! (Ok, the Washington boarder is about 5 minutes away from our house.) :)
