We're Home

The move was pretty painless, I must say. Mike might not say, though. He has a huge headache and a backache today! But we are slowly getting settled with only a few more boxes to unpack. I like the house better than I originally thought I would. I'll upload some pictures when we get everything in place.

Abby Kate doesn't seem disturbed by the move as she slept quite peacefully in her new nursery last night. It's much bigger than her previous room. We'll have plenty of space to get down and play on the floor here. However, the upstairs carpet is blue. Blech! Definitely doesn't go with our decor. Maybe we can persuade the homeowners to change it for us.

Junah is loving all the windows in the front, but DID NOT like it when we left him here for the first time while grocery shopping. There is this dog next door that he chases. I know, unbelievable, right?! If you know Junah, you know he usually doesn't even run to food.

From the small amount of time we've spent driving around town, there seems to be some decent shopping and a few nice restaurants. We plan to drive to the base later today to check it out. I'm excited to see the workout facility they have. I hope it's nice so we don't have to pay for another gym membership. The base also has a pool. I'm so excited for it to open so I can take Abby Kate swimming! She love, love, loves bath time, so I imagine she'll take to the pool pretty well.

Anyway, we have sailed on. More to come on our new surroundings...

Can't wait to see the house! Post pics when you can. Bummer that AK had to move out of the beautifully decorated nursery in Florida. Hope you took lots of pics for her baby book. Will you repaint this one? Or can you paint if you are renting? Glad you all made it safe and sound. Looking forward to more stories from your journey.

I'm with Sara- can't wait to see the new house! Blue carpet and yellow paint... sounds like a gem!

Make sure you send out your new address! Gosh- that seemed to happen so fast!!

Casey, glad to hear you guys are settled. I pray you will meet some nice base wives soon. I was thinking about you and Mike the other night while Matthew and I were watching "The Unit". For your sake, I'm glad things aren't that dramatic in real life. Or maybe they are and we just don't know about it! :)
