New House Suprise

This week is the big week, moving time!  Yesterday we officially sold our house and then on Thursday we will officially buy the new house.  I am so excited!!  I've been telling Jude all about it everyday to the point that if you ask him about the new house he shouts yay!  So cute.  And we had a major suprise yesterday with the new house.  We were meeting our realtor over there to do a final walk through and we were about twenty minutes early.  So we were exploring this little paved path that goes behind some near by houses and about three minutes down the path we discovered a park!
So I was excited before, but now, man oh man, I am over the moon!  At our house now there are two parks within walking distance but one is a school so during the week days it isn't an option plus we have to cross a very busy road.  The other one is about a 25 minute walk and the slides are too big for Jude to get up to by himself with the way they are designed.  And now we will live only minutes away from this awesome park.  I told S that if we had known this park was right here we would have jumped on this house regardless of loving the house or not.  But luckily we do love the house and now we have the park as a suprise bonus.  And it will make moving so much easier while all the toys are waiting to be unpacked and when we need Jude out of the way of the movers we have an easy solution.  Yay!

And Jude already loves this park.  We only got to play for about 15 minutes yesterday and he cried hard when we had to leave.  I have a feeling it will only take once or twice us walking over to it before getting him out the front door to go anywhere else will be really hard.  I can't wait to take him there again.  I have to admit when we first got a glimps of it I pretty much ran to it way ahead of S and Jude and then joyfully went down the slide.  So Jude isn't the only one having fun!


  1. Congrats on the new house! That park does look great. It's nice to have places like that nearby with little ones. Especially in the summer - easy solution to boredom! We like to pack picnics and go to the park near our house. The kids love that.

  2. Yay! Congratulations on the new house and how awesome that you have this great park so close. We are a park loving family so this would have sold us on it too. Can't wait to see pictures of the new place. :)

  3. Perfect!!!! I can't wait to see pictures of the house as well!!! We moved to our current house when Little Monster was 18 months. Best advice I can give, set up Jude's bed ASAP and in a similar location to where it was in his previous room, if at all possible. Like if it was up against the wall near the door, or under a window, etc. Try and replicate. Makes things so much easier with little ones in an unfamiliar place. Good luck getting everything moved and settled with a little one.

  4. That is great! Pictures of the new house? PuhLEASE? ;)
