June Catch Up

 I made these little treats for the kids for St. Patricks Day

 More Las Vegas pictures.At the Luxor.

 Gelato at the Venician! Ashlynn loves the people posing as statues.
 The produce at the Nugget market in Elk Grove.
 The real animal trophies at Foster's Bar, right next to Brian's bank in Rio Vista. We ate right underneath the giant elephant head. Kind of weird but definitely a novelty.

 Here's my new haircut. I never take pictures of myself. I was sending these to Brian since he was up north.

Packing up

Peace, out, SLO...

After 15 years, it's time to say good-bye to SLO. Although I'm learning I'm not good at saying good-bye. I feel like all the right things have to be said, and all the right gestures made. And I worry that I'm not going to do it right, so sometimes I just don't do it at all!

But after a year of waiting for the other shoe to drop, and 4 month of packing and living apart from Brian, it's finally time to get this show on the road!

All the shoes have dropped.

Our home here is rented.

Our new rental home is waiting for us up north.

We still don't know where the kids are going to school.

But we are ready to finally go.

These past few weeks, there have been a lot of good-byes from all of our wonderful friends here. When Brian returned from up north to get the house all packed up, it signaled the end of 4 long months of living on opposite ends of the state. To make it even more meaningful, we celebrated our 12th anniversary the same weekend.

It's all bittersweet. We are sad to leave, but ready to start the next chapter of our lives.

A typical scene in our home

Most of our boxes have been customized by the Rober boys and their trusty Sharpies!

 Visiting Kade's pig with the Hubers. All 3 kids had a sleepover at the Huber's house while Brian and I packed up. The Huber's are awesome! Kade was one of the boy's favorite babysitters.We miss them!
