A few months ago we got official notice from the Army that we were being moved from Tacoma, WA to Miami, FL. I was super excited to get out of the rain but I knew I would miss my friends, and I do miss them so much. I had the most incredible friends in Washington, and Noah has grown up with their little ones over the last couple of years. There were a lot of tears shed during our many goodbyes, but I am thankful for Facebook for helping us all keep in touch.
April was a crazy month -- saying our goodbyes, packing the house, staying with friends, driving from Washington to Florida, staying with family for a week during the drive, and everything else that goes along with moving. And as usual, I documented our journey in photos 🙂 I took hundreds of photos during in June, especially during our trip, and here are some of my favorites.
Moving is not all bad! Noah has a blast playing with the packing materials and boxes that the movers brought! I steadied some boxes for him to play on and made a maze from them for him to go through, which all seemed to help him adjust to the new changes.
I tried to make our goodbyes as fun as possible. We played at the park with our friends, had a goodbye party, got invited to friend's houses, went to a couple of bonfires, and visited some Tacoma and Seattle touristy attractions for the last time 🙂 And I can never resist taking photos of my friend's little ones (a few are included below).
I can't resist the photos of Noah and my husband at the Seattle Aquarium!! He is such an incredible dad!
And now for our 7-day drive across the country...It went much better than we expected! Noah slept a good part of the drive time and the hardest part for me was sharing my space with the dogs. Our 80-pound American Bulldog thought he was a lap dog, which was definitely a problem when we were in close quarters for 7 days 😉 I had to kick him off my lap many times because I couldn't feel my legs!
