Dryer outlet

Needed to take a picture of the outlet for the dryer my awesome Mother in law is bringing down for us, to make sure the right plug was attached.

Freedom in Winco

J LOVED having a little basket he could pull through the grocery store for us. And, it actually helped him to stay within site of me, which is a huge problem we've been having if he's out of the cart.

of course it doesn't do it justice, but we had a beautiful sunrise this morning.

Dinnertime BB-8

J discovered that if you eat part of one round cracker and put it over another, it makes a BB-8. He was so excited and begged me to take a picture.

Pictures of neighbours

We were outside for a while this morning, and J took the camera from me and started taking pictures of the neighbours. They were, unfortunately, the only pictures taken today

life size M&M

We had to run to a new store for some forgotten groceries (on bike!) and walked by these M&M's that were as big as J. He thought they were pretty amazing, and stopped to look at them for quite a while.

family walk

We found a cool trail by our house, and decided to go exploring as a family tonight. It was nice to get out and walk as a family for a while :) We discovered it goes almost all the way to our church.

Kitchen layout

Today, we did something similar for the kitchen layout. 

Picture layout

We've gotten to a point in unpacking to start hanging pictures. I took several today to get opinions on layouts when Drew got up this morning. This is the one we decided on for the front room.

Stormy night

We had an awesome storm tonight, with actually a fair amount of lightning. I tried to get several pictures of it, but none of them really did it justice. So, here's a picture of some trees bending in the wind :)

Allergy meds

Pricing out allergy meds was all that got taken today.

We've been considering a hand towel hanger to put by our sink (which is across the room from where the towels are). So I priced them out while at the store today. this is apparently the only picture that got taken today.

Outside :)

One thing we've been loving about our new house is the playground, right outside. J loves being able to go out frequently. I've also been loving the trees right outside our house. It's been so awesome to actually have a friendly and inviting outside, outside our windows! :D

J's room.

Jacob's room is probably the first to really be set up. We wanted to make sure he was able to feel comfortable in his room as soon as possible, so we made sure it was done quickly. He's been loving having his own space to play, and transitioned to sleeping by himself with no problems. I was expecting at least a couple days of complaints, and probably sleeping in our room, but it hasn't happened. So yay for that!

New couch!

We ended up not bringing a couch with us from Rexburg, so we didn't have one after moving. So we went to the local thrift store, and found this awesome couch for quite the steal, along with some other furniture.

New house!!

We offically got the keys and were able to move some stuff into our new house tonight! It's been super exciting! J loved all the room, and loved being able to run around and see his "new house" We're excited to be able to move tomorrow and finally have our own place.

Different library

Today we went to check out the library by my parents house and officially get a library card (finally!)

emptying the storage unit

We have to get all our stuff out of the storage unit in the next few days in order to avoid being charged $90 for just a few days worth of use. We took several trips up there and back to my parents house over the weekend and today. But, we got it all empty.

a collection of mice

Drew has always had quite the collection of mice. I didn't realize that so many of them had come out of storage while living at my parents house until I was picking them all up to do some vacuuming and packing.

Picture of Grandma!

J found the camera, and enjoyed taking pictures of Mom while waiting for Lunch to be ready.

Enjoying the truck

We took the truck down to our new apartment today to sign some papers and do some other stuff. We happened to be out and about during snack time, and J loved being able to have his snack in the truck. We loved being able to ride in the truck. It's always been a rather secret wish to drive around in a truck, and today that was able to happen. It was awesome!

For Amy Sue

Amy Sue asked for some pictures of mom and dad's plate and utensil picnic holder so she could think about making her own. So, I took a bunch of pictures of it. Those were the only pictures that got taken today.
