Lady Avalon is watching everyone load our moving truck.
We loaded our truck, slept on mats that night, then left at 5 AM the next morning.
We drove about 800 miles that day and spent the night in La Grande Oregon in a hotel.
We got up early again the next morning and kept driving another 400 miles. We drove along the Columbia River and the fog was incredible.
When the fog broke we could see the Lonely Mountain in the distance.
Kal'el wanted to go fight Smaug.
We actually made it to the ocean that day.
We lived in a hotel for a while while we got most of the major renovations done in our new home. New flooring, new paint, new hot water heater and some major cleaning.
There is still a ton to do, but we are working on it little by little.
Here are a few pictures of the inside:
Fun tile on the back splash in the kitchen
Leif working hard on the addition of our future rec and project room.
There are two bathrooms, but we still have tons of work
to do on the second one before I take pictures.
Yes, we still need to get furniture,
but the kids are enjoying the large space to run around.
See our forest out the window!!!
Leif picked out the green color.
Obviously its still a work in progress.
Another BIG project.
There are a few other cool rooms (including the master bedroom with walk in closet),
but I will save those for when they are more finished.
Moss on the curb
Blossoms on the trees
MORE MOSS! I'm in love with moss. <3
Mighty tree roots
Stuff that we will clean up and make even more beautiful.
These blackberry bushes are seriously eight feet high.
Gophers --- or something.
BTW, all the white stuff you see on everything is blossom petals.
I only had a few minutes to take pictures, but I will get more of the forest later.
