25 Years…

14 May

My parents have lived in the same house for 25 years. Last weekend they moved out. After the house had been on the market for at least two years a great young couple came along and bought my parents house. My house. This is the house I grew up in. It was a great place, and we will sooo miss it!

My Mom is so smart. Who wants to keep opening cabinets to see if there’s anything left in them? Not efficient at all…

I’m pretty sure my Dad was dreaming about how he was going to pack the back of the truck days beforehand…

We picked our last roses…

This was my old room…

My Mom always had us stand in front of this tree and take our “first day of school” pictures. We grabbed one more for the road. Ya, I know I look cool…

I told my Mom that if/when she starts a blog, this photo will have to be her header…

Throughout the years we have left our marks…

Member these guys?

Did you know they are multipurpose??

Filled with no room to spare…off to Utah it goes…

Mom…MOM stop cleaning! It’s time to go!

Here’s to a new home and new adventures!

      Hi Noelle,
      I loved ‘walking’ down memory lane @Kendall House. You captured what a special place it was to grow up and the best sides of you parents!
      I love you,
      Aunt Nancy

    Awww… what a sweet post. That truck looks like its packed amazingly efficient. I loved that house, I’m sure you’ll miss it but here’s to bigger and better things in the future.

    Great stuff bug. I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry either. You guys got to sign in the concrete, what about the one by the basketball court? I am pretty sure I signed somewhere! Good job the new look is very cool.

    Josh – I totally forgot about the basketball court until it was too late. I know we all signed our names over there. I’m sorry!!!
