Since Friday, the above picture pretty much sums up our life: messy and packed away in boxes. I've been spending the last few days slowly chipping away at the mess, as well as scrubbing the place clean, and I think I'm maybe 25% done. Keep in mind, I'm working at a pregnant lady's pace over here.
We got our keys and started moving a few things on Friday. The movers came Saturday morning and that's when the real fun began. 4 busy hours later almost everything was at the new place. After that craziness it was time for some fun! We took a much-deserved break to meet up with my family and Ez at Disneyland. No matter how busy life gets, there's always time for cheese Monte Cristos ;)

|Ez liked it much better during daylight (and with a better narrator).|
|Silly Ez...sleeping during Uncle Avery's bday lunch.|
|When did the teacups get so fast??|
On Sunday we met my family for brunch before they had to head home:

|Can you spot Ez?|
Despite the mess and chaos, Ez loves the place. Actually, it may be because of the mess. Apparently climbing through towers of boxes and trash bags full of clothes is a little kid's paradise. As long as he's happy, I'm happy. Actually, as long as he's happy and the gas is turned on so we can cook and shower, I'm happy. The gas company came by yesterday to fix our gas issues and I can definitely say that life is much better with a warm shower. But hey, an excuse for breakfast out with my little man is never a bad thing.
All the boxes and exhaustion aside, we are really happy with this move. The location is fantastic. Ez and I are close enough to Gymboree that we can walk (which is what we did yesterday morning). That means we're also walking distance to Trader Joe's and Panera Bread, which may be a little dangerous. The space is smaller than our old place, but the layout and storage situation is much better so it feels bigger. And, perhaps most important of all, we've still got a big yard for Ez to run around in:
