New House.

We moved.
It was a long process and so much blood sweat and tears went into this move.
We have the BEST parents. We literally couldn't have done it without them. in the physical sense. in the mental sense. Literally and figurately. Both sets traveled to Waco and spent their vacation days, hauling boxes up and down multiple sets of stairs. Babysitting, cleaning, all in 100 degree heat!

It was both emotional and gratifying to leave our "little blue house", as Reyna says.

 We fit our entire house in a single uhaul.

Let me tell you. We left that house better than we left it and that feels pretty good.
We made our trip across town to our new home.

Move in day was a mess. Literally.
We got there with our move in crew only to discover that there were tons of their boxes yet to be moved. Nothing had been cleaned.. I don't mean 10 moxes, I'm talking a moving van worth of stuff!
You know what we did? we ignored it. We brought our stuff in as they took their stuff out.
It was a LOOOOONG day but we managed to get everything into the house in one day.
We had to think of a way to keep Reyna occupied so we put on a movie, a fan, and pillows down and she took a nap! What a trooper!

Our parents worked their tails off!
Now, we get to spend our days, getting the home together. Lots of work has already happened and I'm sure that you'll get a glimpse of the process!
For now, just know that we are loving our B&B and making it ours.

Gull Lake 2016.

We moved.
Like weeks ago!
Lots to catch up on so here we go!
At the end of June, we went on a great long trip Up North. We made another road trip up to Iowa. We spent a few days there and then up to Minnesota.
We spent the Fourth of July up there with extended family.
My American girl!
We swam, splashed, played carpet ball (lots of it), ate too much ice cream, jet skied, rescued an eagle.....

... and mostly just loved lake life.
