It's all ours!

We finally have possession of the house! YAY!
We went last night and brought Subway and had a picnic in the living room. :D
It was fabulous, and the kids got to play in the backyard for a bit. More on that in a bit ;)
For the time being, here is our empty house

The kitchen floor (linoleum) has some staining. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up an deal with it until we put in the new floor. It may be a while, though. We'll see ;)

We also had some fun playing in the backyard

When we first walked out, we saw a mama bird flying away from a nest up in the top of our porch. Aside from the mama squawking away, I heard nothing from the nest, so I assumed it was full of eggs.

Since my vision is so bad, I took a photo so I could zoom in and see better

I shooed the kids out of the patio so the mama (who was circling overhead) could come back.

And then I snagged this photo right before we left for the night

So we have 4 new family members, and brendan wants to build them a bird house :) Can you tell he's my child?
