"Cedar Hills was incorporated in 1977 with 31 occupied homes. At the end of 2008, the city's estimated population was 9,861. Cedar Hillls sits in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, with American Fork to the west, Highland to the west and north, and Pleasant Grove to the south. After long negotiations, Cedar Hills now has a Walmart as the beginning of their commercial part of the town.
With a rural attitude and close proximity to Salt Lake City and Provo, Cedar Hills has a broad appeal to families and commuters."
We're really spoiled with our view and I'm not sure how I'm ever going to live without such beautiful scenery out my windows in the future. Out the kitchen windows, back balcony and my bedroom window we can see the expanse of the valley before us.

Being here reminds me of our first days in Seattle when I was amazed at all the green. I remember driving down 145th, a major road and not very pretty, but when we first got there I thought it was so lovely. It was June and I was amazed by all the berry vines growing wild everywhere and the way trees lined every roadway. Going from that area to this is a big contrast and I'm enjoying the change of scenery and glad that I can appreciate the beauty of both in a way that I haven't in the past.
There's more to report, like how the boys were excited to occupy the basement room but now they are terrible sleepers. And how there isn't a library in Cedar Hills, and how there are over 1,100 kids at the elementary school, but Massi crying in his crib which these days means he is standing up, holding the bar and crying with his mouth on the bar, tears dripping down his face and slobber on his fists. So more to come later.
