I spent the whole weekend working at the new, old house.
Josh had Guard Duty all weekend. But about 6pm last night after he got home, we got a wild hair and decided to borrow Josh's Dad's trailer to move into the new, old house a week early.
The kids were crazy-excited (and I was taking pictures of the crazy excitement before we headed over to the old, new house to load our stuff).
That's Annie (who is obviously into dressing herself lately) talking on the broken, old cell phone I gave her. She 'called' Grandma Jo to tell her we were moving.
And that's the kids goofing off on the front porch of the new, old house before we left.
They had hid in the truck bed while we were getting ready to leave so we pretended we didn't know they were back there and drove down the road just a bit which is totally taboo and therefore totally fun.
I think I spent half of my life as a kid driving around in the back of a pick-up truck which in retrospect, wasn't all that safe (but it was awfully fun).
And since we didn't have time for a decent dinner, we went through the drive-in at Taco Bell where the kids got thumb-war puppets (which ended up on their toes).
Perhaps I need to bathe Cole more often.
And then the kids played on the back of the trailer while we loaded it up.
Not the best shot in the world but in my defense, I only got to take a couple shots before Josh Downs (who NEVER complains about me taking photos) rhetorically asked, "Are we taking pictures or are we moving?"
So if you were wishing for more photos of our move...you know who to blame.
