Our trip...

The reason for our trip to Wilmington, NC this week was actually for a job transfer!  About two weeks ago Garet was told about an opening there, they flew us out, showed us around, and then made Garet an offer.  After talking everything over - we accepted!  So we will be moving back to North Carolina!

Here we are about to meet up with Garet's new bosses for a nice dinner...

Lucky for us we had the perfect babysitter!!
Eric and Kailey are only an hour from Wilmington!

So we will be living right outside of Wilmington - a small town called Whiteville.
We've driven all around and are very excited about this!  This will put us so much closer to family!!  My parents will be 3 hours away!  Wow!  (Now they are about 8.)  There is a really nice state park that will be close to us.  They have camping/hiking and a really nice lake!

The town is super cute!  We didn't have too much time to really explore, but we did get to eat lunch at this nice little cafe downtown.

We knew once we had Colin that we wanted to be closer to family.  Garet was able to talk to his boss here and let him know that if anything closer became available we would be interested.  At that time, his boss warned us that when another council was interested in Garet, it would be a very fast process - and boy was he right!  Within a week of hearing about this opening we were flown out to see it.  Then made an offer... so in two weeks we went from normal, to moving to another state!  And to make things go even faster, Garet starts this new job on April 11. 

We are so blessed to have this opportunity!  And we couldn't be more thrilled to be moving so close to family!  It is truly bittersweet to be leaving though.  We have made some awesome friends here, and have really made Huntsville our home. 

Before I get emotional... I will end this =) 
Here is our sweet little man at the airport.  He was so excited to be sitting in the chair!  We were about to board our plane to bring us back here.
