We are Making a Move

Well, I guess it's safe to officially say that we are going to move to Utah. We have been debating over it for a while, but the time has come. We feel good about the decision and think that it's where we need to be right now it our lives. One of my girlfriends, Kirsten, helped me get a job out there working with Deseret Biologicals. They specialize in homeopathics, which has to do with developing and creating natural remedies to allergies and other things. (Correct me if I'm wrong Kristen) I'm excited to work there and try out their products and see if we can find something that will help me with my allergies to dairy. Kemp also has a job lined up, but it's not 100% yet. I'm sure the Lord will bless us and him with a job as we make our way to Utah.

Kent and Megan Norman Dec. 19, 08

When we went to visit Kemp's family in Idaho for Christmas, we had the opportunity to see one of my friends sealed in the Bountiful Temple. It was beautiful! We loved being a part of the experience! Megan and I grew up together in Texas. Sometime in high school she moved a few times, but we managed to keep in contact. She has always been one of my dearest friends and I was so happy to see her sealed in the temple to such a great guy.

December 3-10 we got to go to Hawaii with my parents and a few friends (Abell & Brit). We had a blast! The plane ride over took forever but it was worth it! We got there that evening on the 3rd and checked into our hotel, which was a time share we got through some friends of my parents.

On day 2 we went on a hike with my parents on the big island. This is the vehicle we rode to get to the hiking trail.

We saw lot of waterfalls, but nothing as big as we hoped. It's very dry on that half of the island (Kona)

After the hike we met up with Abell and Brit and went to Hapuna Beach and hung out there the rest of the day.

Inbetween jumping waves, Kemp and Abell made some chairs and sand castles. I know, very masculine huh?

My parents created a sea turtle. Pretty good huh?
Day 3: We went on a Glass Bottom Boat in Kona and walked around the strip.

Day 4: We drove over to the other side of the island and went on a helicopter ride and saw a little of the active volcanoes. We also went to the Volcanoes National Park.

That night we went to the Southern Most Point in the U.S. We saw a few dolphins out in the ocean and watched the sun set. It was really awesome!

Day 5: On Sunday we went to a church right next door to the Temple.

After church we sinned and went kayaking around Captain Cook's Monument.

Day 6: We took a plane over to Oahu. We started the day by going to Pearl Harbor.

Then we went to the Polynesian Cultural Center.

Day 7: Abell and Brit were about to go to a session in the temple. It is a beautiful place! We had to catch a plane that morning to Kauai so we missed out on doing a session.

Once we flew into Kauai we made out way over to zipline through the forest.
