Moving - Phase One

Moving Day!
Our cottage walls were closing in around us with packed boxes and stuffed bags.
I stuffed my car and headed over to Idaho bright and early last Wednesday.
Tom stayed behind to supervise the movers as they packed the rented truck.
They filled the van with almost all of our things.
Once it was full, Tom drove the van over to Idaho.

We still plan on living in Redmond
for about another month.

The only things left behind are
 Tom's TV, chair and our bed.
Along with some of our clothes,
 bathroom necessities
  and minimal kitchen supplies.
We call it "Glorified Camping".

Your first glimpse of our new home
The grandchildren are SO excited!
They unpacked and played with the toys 
we had for them when they would
 visit us in Redmond. 
It was like Christmas!

First meal at our new home!
This is the covered, back porch.
We know we will be living out here
 most of the time.
It's huge.



Happy Anniversary Tom!

Who knew, we'd have so many adventures.
After 36 years of being together,
we are off on another exciting escapade. 

Lulu made us an anniversary sign, 
along with a card from her and
 a card from Tom.

Here's to more adventures and many more years!
I love you!
