Well Nate and I are busy trying to get the house packed and ready for our move. Not so fun. Nate had his last day of work on Friday, which was bittersweet to say the least. But now he is committed fulltime to helping me pack, which is wonderful! I made slow but steady progress all week during Hayden's naps, but we made a huge dent working together today, and aim to wrap up hopefully tomorrow early afternoon, so we can do something fun tomorrow night to say goodbye to Livermore. It's very surreal that we are leaving, and very sad. But we both decided that our sadness at leaving pales in comparison to our excitement at the adventure that awaits us in Texas. Saying good bye to our friends is going to be extremely hard, but we know we'll keep these friends for life, and of course the invitation is extended to everyone to come visit!
The moving van comes on Tuesday, and then we hit the road on Wednesday. We plan to stop in Tahoe to take some family portraits with our wedding photographer, then it's on to Park City and Steamboat Springs, before spending the weekend in Denver visiting our family and friends there. Hayden will get to meet his aunts and uncles, and his great grandparents (and hopefully his great-great-Grandma!). We will then shove off for Dallas to meet our moving van and get into our new house. So there is a lot to look forward to.
We are hoping to drive out goes ok. With two dogs, a cat, a baby, and two adults, things could get a little cramped. But we'll make it work. Wish us luck! Here are some photos of Hayden at 4 weeks old. Enjoy :)
