I hardly took a single picture one our trip to WA, but we had a really nice two day rest stop in Utah where we relaxed and played with cousins, Grammy, and my siblings. The drive itself went very smoothly. We left very early on our drive days and arrived by dinner time to our destinations. The boys mostly played games and watched shows and we had a few breaks now and then. We went from dry, dry deserts to green rolling hills to lush mountain forests! Quite the transition.
Poor pup had very limited space in the back
Our first four days were spent at a hotel for the "house hunting trip" Dewy's company provided for us. Love me a hotel where people clean up after you!! haha. We did all of our house hunting and found our house and got our offer accepted by day 3. Our kiddos did NOT enjoy driving around looking at houses all day for two days, but it was worth it and we have found our house. Just need to wait for the process to finish up to buy it so we can move in!
On day 4 we moved into our temporary apartment in downtown Seattle that Dewy's company provides for 30 days. After that we are on our own. We have about a two week gap right now before we can move into our house so we will need to figure something out for that time, but right now we are enjoying the feel of city life.
Seattle is BEAUTIFUL. I haven't seen a run-down area yet, although I'm sure it exists. They keep it quite clean and every corner has something artistic about it.

We have been a little homesick for how homey El Paso felt with how new everything is here, but Tucker's STELLAR teacher that I adore was sweet enough to let him FaceTime with the class from our apartment. They were all so excited and asked Tucker all about his move. Wow, we just had wonderful teachers and people there. Just have to remind myself that we will find great people here too because they are everywhere :)
