IT'S OFFICIAL!!! Our orders are in! 

The Navy is moving us next week and we'll be in DC by the second week of October!

After 10 days, 20 total traveling hours, and a WHOLE lot of help from Papa Raftery, our new home is found and were off to DC! I would love to report that we have pictures of the house but unfortunately the craziness of this week caused some picture shortages! 

Our new Metro stop (Van Dorn St)

Landon loved his first Metro ride! We'll be using this awesome public transportation a lot - especially since its 5 minutes away.

Daddy-o loves his Chipotle (as we all know at this point). We traveled down to Chinatown for some Mexican - sounds strange I know!

Thank you to all the love and welcoming we felt in DC

Papa Raftery - you are such a blessing to us and I can't thank you enough for all your generosity! The kids loved spending time with you and I truly look forward to the next few years.

 Megs and Ben  - you guys are great! Thank you for taking on the challenge of 4 kids while we house hunted. It was awesome being there while you welcomed your beautiful baby girl Keira! Can't wait to be so close to you all!

Can you bring a palm tree or two, just in case someone gets homesick? HA HA HA
