This past week was a blur finalizing everything we needed to do to get the house packed and cleaned before we all headed east.
Kade may have reached my phone a time or two when I wasn't looking!
Moving day was upon us! Trailer had arrived the morning before, Brent was en route to drop off the kids for the day at Adventure Kids, packers arrived to box the kitchen, and movers started hauling everything we own out! It was a whirlwind!
The only actual pictures I took were of the four movers loading Brent's 600-pound safe in to the truck.
|Oh yeah.... and it was raining.....|
.....there may have been one smelly dog chair that did not make the second trailer..... sorry Oscar, but that chair STUNK! Know anyone that wants it? I can tell you where we left it... ;)
Back to our last night in Renton... after picking up the boys at Adventure Kids at 5:30PM, (So that's what it feels like to be a "working mom".... you really look forward to seeing the little buggers after a day away from them! Just kidding... ;) ) we all headed for dinner at Pagliacci's pizza in Bellevue.
Brent opted to stay home and sleep on the floor in the empty house and watch all our possessions in the driveway, so I went solo to our reserved hotel room with the boys. I was so focused on getting a hotel that was dog-friendly, I neglected to check if the hotel stocked cribs/playpens. That was a fun night sleeping in the bed with Kade.
Woke up for an early flight on Alaska Airlines nonstop to Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
It was a fairly decent flight with my two little travelers. Kade even managed to sleep for an hour! Brock is doing a good job with his photography - here's another one he captured!
The following day, our house officially sold! Goodbye house, you were a lovely home and a fabulous investment!
We are staying with my mother for a week before our Apex house closes and to give Brent time to drive here! This is his route below - he has made some AMAZING time pulling a trailer and traveling with two very large dogs - good thing they're used to sleeping all day.
