Well, all systems are finally up at The New House, and the camera cords have been unearthed from their boxes. So here are some scenes from the move. First, the day before the big event, Aunt Annie and Uncle Andy took Thomas to the Natural History Museum so we could pack. This is how he was returned to us:
Note that he is still wearing his pajama top in that photo. I guess we didn't even manage to dress him that morning.
Then, because construction was not quite done at The New House, Grandma Nancy, Thomas, Emmett and Laura left for Ocean City, NJ. Grandpa Doug, Dave and Vanessa heroically tackled the dust and jumping spiders to unpack. Grandma, Mommy and the boys, once we made it through a harrowing drive, had a fantastic time. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves:
Thomas and Nancy jumped the waves together. We all kicked back in the beautiful Kuhn family cottage, just steps from the beach.
When we got back, the boxes were unpacked (mostly), and we could just enjoy them and the new playroom:
More photos of The New House to come. In the meantime, we here at The Kirkpatrick Boys would belatedly like to welcome little Kaya Kurz to the world. Here is Emmett celebrating with Grandpa Ted:
