This past weekend, we hauled all 5 kids to Florida for a househunting trip. We spent Friday evening viewing homes including the one we've had an offer on since the beginning of the month (short sale-isn't everything?). Even though it's a bit rough (dead frogs in the master, etc.) and needs some work (yard is a jungle, pool is a swamp and the carpet is shot) we feel like it's where we are meant to be. The floor plan is awesome-3290 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, office and bonus room- and the neighborhood and schools are wonderful. It was built in 2005 and we're convinced there is an amazing house underneath all the dirt and vegetation! Ultimately, everything that is wrong with it can be changed and we aren't afraid of a little work. It's just going to take some time.

When we weren't stressed out about finding a home we took the kids to the aquarium. Meili LOVED it so we bought an annual membership. The next day we drove out to the beach and took a walk along the water (no pics, sorry). On Sunday our flight home was canceled so we spent our extra day driving out to Orlando to see how far we would be from the temple and D-World. Not too bad! I think we'll be up for hosting our travel group reunion by next July!
