Bye, Bye Trailer!

O.k., I know this happened about a month ago, but I still had to post this. It's just not something you see everyday. I know I have a TON of updating to do, but this is where we will start. A week after we got moved in, our trailer was ready to be moved. Here are some pics of that day...

Our trailer hooked up to the tractor
Sitting in the driveway
Now it's hooked up to a truck
And there it goes down the road!

I have to be honest, I was very excited to see that trailer go. That meant we were starting a new chapter in our lives and I was so happy to be in our house. But that morning, when I was taking these pictures, I couldn't help but to look into the windows and see the life we had there. I brought two little babies home to that trailer. There were so many happy memories there. I just cried as I said a thank you and goodbye to that good little trailer (much like I'm doing now as I'm typing this!).
Like I said, I am so happy and grateful for our new house, we absolutely LOVE it! But it was a sad day to see the place we made so many memories go down the road.
But on a lighter note, as my mom, my aunt, the kids, and I were out running errands, I saw the truck with our trailer on it, pulling onto the highway. So we quickly drove to the overpass and pulled over just as the trailer drove beneath us. It was kind of crazy to watch our house drive away!! Just take a look...

I can only imagine what a bitter/sweet day that must have been. How exciting for your family though to be moving onto the next chapter in your lives! I can't wait to see pics of the new place now that you are in!

Wow, I haven't really thought about it from that perspective. I keep wishing we were out of our trailer and in our house. But when I listen to you it makes me appreciate the memories we're making in the process! Congrats on the new house and the new chapter! You do need to post pics of your home now that your moved in!

Now you have a new chapter with a great new home and with a cute new baby to bring to it. I hope all is well with you and your family. I hope we'll make it out this summer.

I can totally relate to you. I was so excited to get out of the 5th wheel but sad cause it was where we had Aubri and all the memories that came with it. I love your new house! I'm excited for your cute family!

Hi Hannah! I've found your blog by blog stalking this morning, and I hope that it's ok that I've taken a peek into your life. What a darling family you have! Of course, Austin will always have a sweet little spot in my heart from being his Sunbeam teacher!!! :)
Have a good day!

How exciting to start this new chapter in your lives! I know it is hard to leave the old home--to say goodbye, but you will always have great memories from the "trailer" and you get to make memories from here on out in your new home! I can't wait to see pictures of your finished home!
