Moving Day

It's been a LONG weekend so far! 

Moving weekend officially began on Thursday night with the arrival of Nick's parents, my mom, and Kevin.  After a quick dinner, we brought everyone over for an official tour and moved in some awkward items that didn't quite fit into boxes.

Friday morning started with the arrival of the movers at both our condo and our storage area. 

I thought it would be polite to offer my mom a yogurt.  Ooops - packed the spoons already!

Kevin was immediately put to work painting at the new house in the family room/kitchen area.

Both sets of movers converged at the new house in the late morning/early afternoon and the unloading began.

One of the most entertaining projects of the weekend was Nick and Bruce's adventure with hanging the ceiling fan in our master bedroom.

Note: Nick starts the project with a blue polo shirt

Step #2 - Lost the shirt and gained an instruction manual

Hmmmm.... back to the directions

Yippee - ceiling fan!

After a very long day, Nick finished off by installing the mini blinds in our bedroom around midnight.

On Saturday, we had a ton of help around the house from Susan/Malon and Liz/Nick, so many different projects got accomplished.
