work and play

was the name of the game this memorial day weekend
little weird not being in TC this weekend..probably the first time ever
but with officially moving this coming Saturday, it was a must to stay home and get some stuff done
That did not hold us back from having some fun

Started the weekend off on the right foot [pun intended haha]

Then it was yard work on a friday night

 Look at the results [no i did not help with all of this but some for sure some of it!]

Typical memorial day weekend agenda...seadoos in.  My first time driving a trailer...ekkk 
douger get props for the years it did it to TC and back

Must get a boat ride in.  Sunny and warm enough!

Allyson and Josh were back in town. 
Nothing says a good time like friends and ice cream!

and the official day off...led to lunch date
and a park
Then it was back back to work.  Two trailer loads done.
5 more sleeps at the 7263...bit sentimental but really looking forward to what is come
Happy short week of work, remember tomorrow is TUESDAY! :)

was awesome!  access to the executive lounge: meaning going about 6 times to get snacks, pop, dessert, breakfast or just to check it out!

This weekend we headed down to for a SURPRISE visit to see Allyson and be able to spend a a truly fabulous weekend with her downtown [thanks to Josh and his wonderful planning!]

Our unplanned weekend turned into:
Sleeping in until 10 
strolls to breakfast
discovering the canal
which made us discover paddle boats
which made us discover 5 people bikes
and of course floor 31
and lots and lots of snacks and chatting!

And we are off in the MINI, can you say VERA!
 and snacks
 Great driving Kim and co-piloting KP

Out for our stroll past ANDY RODDICK 2006 siting :)
 through the urban market
 to the canal

 paddle boat time...limit 4 but who really listens to that

walk through the park, with the JW behind us
 biking time..3 miles no problem!
may have to jump out and push up the hills

all dressed up..time to hit floor 31, mall and chick-fil-a

 our absolutely fabulous accommodations :)

great way to sum up this weekend:
the only time I think we stopped talking was when we were sleeping or 30 minutes of naps on the way home in the car
Love these girls and love spending time with them!

six boxes

DONE...and a 100 or so to go...may exaggerating and maybe not!? HA!
we have about 4 weeks to pack up the entire house
[I never made a blog announcement]

Three of the six..labelled and ready to go
 Big Bag of bubble wrap to entertain us this weekend

It was truly amazing how quick everything happened. 
Made it VERY evident that this all meant to be.
Bought and sold a house in about a week and half, yeah I would say so!
I was talking to a friend last tonight about the timing and what is next and was like erk where are we going or what are we going to be doing with all this stuff and then it hit me again!
  This is what we prayed for.  This is what we were blessed with and even though it looks like a long road ahead, it will continue to ALL work out!

Countdown to June 7....
