i'll leave it at that but i basically spent the next week unpacking and reorganizing all of our stuff. it was a little unsettling to see a CD, a few golf balls, some kitchen utensils, a salad bowl and a few pairs of jeans in one box, so i needed to address this issue. we still have boxes piled high in one room of the house, but at least they are labeled and contain things in similar categories and they are only the boxes that need to be moved to permanent storage--for the time being.
once this was sort of done, adam's sisters and their kids came in to town for a meet the newest cousin mckinley/fun at the beach/disney/etc. vacation. courtney and the kids stayed with us so we were lucky enough to have some more time with them as we've sort of been having withdrawals since we left UT. i'll probably post some more pictures of the vacation later, but i thought i'd post some from our trip to gatorland on tuesday.... in the scorching, humid heat of o-town. aside from sweating profusely for the entire day (and for several cool down hours after we got home) it was pretty fun/funny.

coleman was a little scared, but couldn't quite take his eyes off the action. so he just blocked out the noise instead.
