Life Back East

So this year, summer sales has proven to be quite eventful so far. We've been out here in Elkhart for about a month and already Skylar has some crazy stories to tell. The guys have been traveling to all the little cities around the area, and for some reason the cops really just don't like them sometimes. Unfortunately, Skylar has had two incidents where he's been handcuffed, which always makes for a great story at dinner that night. But they soon realize he's not causing problems and let him go. Oh the life of a door to door salesman! He definitely goes into some interesting places and meets some interesting people. But all in all, the summer has been good, here's some of our adventures so far!

We got to celebrate our 1st Anniversary together on May 7th! We couldn't believe a year had gone by already. Skylar surprised me and took me on a fancy date! It was really fun!

 It said Happy Anniversary in the Menu!

We had an office BBQ in the park on Mother's Day with all the guys and techs. It was fun just to relax and hang out together.

 Skylar grillin' some burgers!
 Kara and Haylee playing, so cute!

We got to take a trip to Chicago for some amazing pizza! I don't think I've ever seen a pizza so massive and full of cheese before. It was delicious and we were all stuffed afterwards. That was our first time in Chicago!

Got to love every city and its quirks. Elkhart has these giant painted Elks all over the city. We had to get a picture with one!
 Pretty Botanic Gardens

Haha, oh and this guy have fun together! He was playing with the fire in the candle and I thought it was really funny.

Skylar and some of his guys by the S. S. Ghetto! Why am I sending my husband here everyday?

Me and the other wives have had fun exploring some of the Amish Country! We went to a little place called Shipshewana which was so cute with horse and buggies all over the place! I had the best pie I've ever had in my life I think, amish made chocolate and peanut-butter, doesn't get any better! Mmm. We also found this Old Bag Factory in Goshen too. Just part of the summer adventures!

And of course, there's laying by the pool. Wouldn't be summer without that :)

So this is the last of our adventures here in Elkhart, IN. We will be going to Grand Rapids, MI which seems like a really neat city. I'm excited for all the fun things we will find there!

  1. Thanks for the fun update Kristin! I never get to talk with you and am so glad you are getting to go on some 'outings' with some of the other wives. Sounds like you are hanging in there with the life as the wife of a crazy door to door salesman husband! Love you! Janelle :)
