Fortuna California

We made it! The reason for my lack of blog updates, is that I have been too busy! We left Philly on December 24th. The hospital paid for a moving company to pack up all of our belongings and ship them to California! After 7 moves in the past 7 1/2 years- this was the way to go! We spent Christmas in Utah-loved seeing our families. I flew out with Casyn to California the 1st week of January while Brent was busy studying for boards. I spent a week alone staying with new friends and fixing up our interesting rental house (it was disgusting -so with the help of my new friend we did some MAJOR painting etc...) Brent and Aubrie arrived- our stuff was a week late (yuck). Then we unpacked and less than a week later-Brent's mom passed away. We had quite an adventures road trip in our new Honda Pilot (LOVE IT). The funeral went well and 4 days later we were back on the road in time for Brent to start his new job the next morning at 8 a.m.! Whew! It makes me tired just writing this! We are getting settled in (more stories to follow...) I just wanted to get a few pictures up of where we live!
This is main street.

Charcoal Grey Honda Pilot

The front of our rental house-complete with the treehouse Brent has always promised he would build Aubrie!


Local playground-the whole city is surrounded by redwood trees. Truly amazing!

First, so sorry for your loss. Please give Brent our love.

Second, congratulate Brent for us on his graduation. We're super proud. What an accomplishment.

Third...Fortuna looks so cute! I can't wait to take a Wardle Family road trip to see you guys. Do they have a hotel in Fortuna?
