There's No Place Like Home

And tomorrow we'll have one! Woo-hoo!

I did the math, and in the month of April, the kids and I have spent the night in 8 different homes or hotel rooms.
Josh's number is even higher thanks to his drive across the country.
We are ready, ready, ready to be settled!

But we've definitely had some fun during all the transition as well.
Yesterday while packing up from our night in LA, we decided to take a last-minute detour and visit some good friends from North Carolina who now live in California.
So we drove 2 hours from LA to Edwards AFB and spent the night there. We had a great time hanging out with our friends, and then this afternoon we drove back to Monterey.

We got our keys to the new house, and went in to try to figure out where we want all the furniture to go before the movers get there in the morning. Tomorrow night we'll be sleeping in our own beds, albeit among boxes and a big mess.
As long as we find the box marked linens we should be good to go. ;)

We have the internet installation scheduled for Wednesday, so hopefully I wont be out of touch for long. I owe a lot of folks e-mails, so please don't think I'm ignoring your messages-- things have been just a wee bit crazy.

And now, as promised, here is a recap of our Disney fun...

Da playas--

Joshua B. Schore, Fighter Pilot. Confident enough in his manhood to sport a pink princess backpack in public. While riding on a blue whale.

Does the dirty work of blocking his family from the "splash" of Splash Mountain. He hates doing it, but he perseveres for us.

(Disregard the unattractive shot of the woman holding her tiny infant baby boy in the boat lest he perish.)

Erin N. Schore, 30-something housefrau. Has an unnatural fear of Ferris wheel's and an equally unnatural love of root beer floats and funnel cakes.

Alexandra K. Schore, almost-7-year-old. Lost her second front tooth our first night at Disney. Loves roller coasters, front row only please, and would like to meet all the printhetheth.  (That's toothless for princesses.)

Derek J. Schore, tiny infant baby boy. Enjoys tame rides, hates characters, and is still carrying a grudge for being made to try everything once. Goes to Disneyland to play with bubbles.

Our first family trip to Disneyland was definitely a success. I have a ton more pictures, but in a couple of days I'll have actual high speed internet and I'll upload them then.

Come visit us in our new house!

Only not this week...

Ferris wheels and bridges have much in common.

Me and Mr. Wright said...

Um, I love you. (Sorry, is that weird?)

Not only did you give me some laughs on a day I REALLY needed it- but I, too have an unnatural fear of ferris wheels (Don't even get me started on the ones that aren't totally caged in)- but the fear I have is directly proportional to the love I have for all things root beer floats and funnel cakes! :)

Glad you guys are getting settled. Cant wait to see pictures of the new place!

With a cast like that, you know it's going to be a FABULOUS production. :)

Taylor said...

I miss you! & your tiny, infant baby boy.

Christina said...

Yay! So glad to hear of your fun and your almost-home!!

Joyce said...

You are so entertaining! Good luck with the move in and finding the linens.

My tiny baby infant girl graduates from college this weekend. : )

Katie said...

Can I hear a whoop whoop for Edwards AFB? Actually not much to brag about which is even more of a compliment that you came to visit. Can't wait to see your new home!
