The Hicks made it to Kentucky!

Tyler and I set out for our long road trip on Friday June 24th. Along with us was Ty's Dad and My Mom. The 4 of us traveled for 2.5 days, 25 hours, and 1600 miles! We travel through Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and finally arrived to our new home, KENTUCKY! To stay awake my Mom and I kept track of all the different state license plates we passed. We saw 24 out of the 50 states... pretty good if you ask me. Towards the end we thought of another good game... we should have counted how many dead animals we passed.
Due to a bad truck accident ahead of us we were at a dead stop for over an hour in the middle of nowhere, just out side of Cheyenne. Tyler came back to our car to check on us. :)

Dinner in Kansas City. Tyler and Ron @ Anthony's.
Nancy and Lauren. This Italian restaurant had amazing food and the nicest people!

When we arrived at our apartment in Louisville, there were 12 LDS guys waiting to help us move in. My Mom and Ron starting crying, they knew Ty and I were going to be well taken care of.  Because of the help Ron and Nancy provided, we were able to make our apartment a home! Ty and I feel so blessed to have such great parents!

Our bedroom, Thanks Ty for hanging the drapes.

Family room, My mom made us that darling green window valence. 

Ron and Tyler did a great job mounting the T.V.


Tyler's NEW office!

Louisville has been great so far. I never knew there were so many different shades of green!Our Apartment couldn't be located in a better place! We are 10-15 mins away from, Costco, Walmart, the Movie Theatre, our Temple and Church, and even a Chick-Fil-A! Tyler's school is downtown, it's only 20-25 mins away. We are looking forward to seeing more of the city and popular sites.
We can't wait for our family and friends to come see us, The "Hicks" in Kentucky!
