A moving experience

First of all, this post is being done exclusively from my phone because my feet are just enjoying the ottoman way too much.
I have a lot to write but here's my tired version:
February and March were VERY busy for us. 
We listed and then said goodbye to the green house after an eventful 6 years.
(That jeep in the driveway will get a farewell soon, too :( )

We moved all of our belongings into storage and ourselves into a hotel... For two weeks.

(The kids actually really enjoyed the hotel. I just thought this pic of BabyCakes was funny because it looks like she is sipping her morning coffee.)

Then we moved in to our new house in a new community after an epic 7 hour wait for our closing to occur.

But it all happened.  Looking back it seems like a lot to fit in to two months, but at the time it seemed to crawl by.  

April has finally kicked Winter to the curb and everything feels especially new in our life this Spring: new home, new people to meet, new schools to look forward to, new Chinese restaurants to try, and even a new baby nursery to prepare. :)

Yes, lots of NEW is going on around here, but if we are lucky many of the old friends we have from the green house will remain in our lives too. We now live 15-20 minutes away and as my friends in Tennessee, California, Florida, Texas and even North Dakota will tell you, it takes a lot more than that to get rid of me!
