|Vultures eating ice beam at a friend's birthday at the park earlier this week - and this was after two giant pieces of cake!|
Hayes, 4 years... He's pretty excited about "moving to Uncle Pat's" and has actually been quite a good little helper as we've been trying to pack these past couple of weeks. He packed up all of the spices, arranging them just so and also knocked the pantry off of my to-do list! He's also taken to carrying all of his beloved Paw Patrol toys around in a giant moving box, which comes with him when he eats, watches TV, sleeps, you name it. I think he's afraid to let it out of his sight in case we decide to throw them in the storage pile!
|This is how Greyson "helps" around the house...|
Greyson, 20 months: ...When I was putting him to bed the other night, he was a little distressed after I left the room, which is super rare for Grey, who seemingly can't wait to climb into bed and nod off into slumberland. I went back in to settle him down and he reached up with both arms and cried out, "hug?", then promptly gave me a squeeze and a very assertive two handed kiss. My heart swelled, I tell you - I'll take an extra hug from you any day, Grey!
Esther: ...we've had major progress over the last week or so and the house is completely framed, which is super exciting to see all of the rooms laid out the way they're going to be. We visit every week, usually on Friday afternoons and bring the boys, letting ourselves in so we can look around while the boys excitedly run from room to room.

|Nice big space where French doors will go in the master...|

|Guest bedroom and boys' suite...|

|Standing just inside the front door... there goes another plane!|

|The only tree we'll be able to keep. Isn't she gorge?|
I think we'll get to start picking out the finishes in the next couple of weeks and that's when the real fun will begin ;-)
