Our Last Good-bye Dinner with Friends

Beckett in the bucket and the kids in the fire engine

I can't believe we are really saying good-bye!!!! :( We love our house, we love our neighborhood, we love our friends and family, we love our yard, our library, our park district, our neighbors, I could go on and on. We invited some friends over for a little barbecue on one of our last weekends before moving to Houston. I love having friends who have kids that are friends with our kids, so we can have family dinner parties and everyone is entertained! I am in disbelief that we won't be here in just a couple of weeks- we have lived in this house for almost 3 years and it is perfect in every way for us. I remember when we first looked at the house and saw the yard, the huge deck, the landscaping, we thought: "this is the perfect party house-" and it lived up to our expectations. We had a nice little outdoor party with lots of kids, plenty of good food, and adult conversation enhanced by Tonio's awesome mojito's. Maybe Caputo's (my favorite local grocery store) can expand down to Texas? Although it wouldn't be the same without the little Italian grandma's. I'm going to miss our life here:(.
