The Sweet Sound of Music

My generous in-laws told us a year and a half ago when they moved that we could have their piano. We were so thankful but until this past weekend couldn't get a trailer up there to bring it back with us. We decided to bite the bullet and put a hitch on our van, borrowed a trailer from Jeremy's work, and made the drive up to get the piano. Our nephew McKay was being baptized in St. George so Jeremy dropped us off Thursday night and drove the rest of the way to Santaquin. He got up the next morning, loaded up the piano and drove back to St. George. Between traffic and pulling a trailer it took us 8 1/2 hours to get back from St. George (it is usually a 5-6 hour drive.) Anyway, it is done now and we are so thankful to have their beautiful piano in our home. Barbara has kept the piano in such great shape, it is 30years old and shows almost next to no wear. Jeremy and I have been taking turns playing and we both realize how much we have forgotten but really look forward to learning again. Eli has been so anxious to learn so Jeremy taught him a scale last night and he has been practicing it all morning. Of course there is a lot of noise coming from the piano but that is to be expected. I really look forward to years of music in our home. Thank you again to Doug and Barbara for making this possible for us.

Congratulations! I'm glad that you made it back safely--what a trip!

Oh- we are so happy to have the piano put to great use! It will draw your fingers to come and play it. The piano is as old as Jeremy, 1975 and well worn--We hope to hear lots of piano noise!
