One year ago today, we wrapped up a four-day, 1200-mile road trip as our Subaru rolled into our apartment parking slot. We'd never set foot in, or even seen, this apartment complex, and we had no idea how long we would live there. Luckily, everything worked out better than we could have planned, and went super smoothly.
We've packed a lot of big changes into this year. (moving into two new spaces, a new home, a new baby, kindergarten...) We're still unpacking
some a lot of our boxes, and if we're being honest, we're still unpacking a lot of our feelings as well. I'm trying to write about my thoughts, but that will have to come later.
We took a fun little outing yesterday, and though we didn't plan this activity specifically to commemorate our move-aversary, but it really was a fitting choice. We'd heard that the University of Washington has some lovely cherry trees and when yesterday dawned on a beautiful blue and sunny day, we thought we'd go check out the early blossoms. We may have to go down next weekend as well, once they are fully in bloom.
We had a heck of a time figuring out where to park, until we realized the spots weren't permitted after noon on Saturdays... I took a couple of shots to test the light while we were getting everything out of the car and got a nice shot of this sweet little face.
|Maybe Alice and/or Ivy will go here!|
We were definitely not the only ones there to enjoy the trees, and it was hard for everyone to stay out of each other's photos - especially because the patches of grass were all squashy mud swamps.
It was a lovely little afternoon field trip, and then we found a nearby restaurant for dinner. The kids love going out to eat, and Elliott even got to eat his chicken dinner in a big boy high chair! So here we are, a family of five, a bunch of California kids doing our best to be real Seattle-ites and Washingtonians - though one of us actually is!! So here's to more rain, more adventures, and hopefully not a lot more change. On to the next year!
