NV and the Pack

Untitled

After Disneyland we headed to Grandmas house in Nevada where we enjoyed my parents company for a few days. It was also my mom's birthday and was so nice to be with her. We celebrated, went on a little hike to Grimes Point Archeological Site, visited my brother's new puppies, and finally E and I took off back to Colorado for our big pack.

The actual pack was easier that expected emotionally, but long and tiring too. We have moved a lot. A lot with packers and a lot without. Usually the packers make it a breeze, but these guys were a little careless and ran out of time making it a hasty job in the end.

When the Mircos house was all emptied out and cleaned E and I walked around in the dark before shutting it down one last time and our hearts sank a bit.

 3 years in a home with small children can pack in a lot of memories. Rosie's first steps and first words, our fruitful garden, Ava learning piano and having it ring through our home for the first time, GM kicking the soccer ball around in the backyard and jumping on the tramp like a hooligan, Gigi learning to ride her bike. Many days were spent in our tiny kitchen baking goodies and dancing while cleaning up after dinner, bike rides to get ice cream, summer nights at the pool where the older girls overcame their fears of swimming,  and all the little personal touches we added that made that home ours.

Driving away was so surreal, parts of us were wanting put it all back, and yet we drove off, had dinner and flew out early in the morning back to collect our children and head to Idaho.
