Getting Ready for the Big Move.....

Well, tonight starts our nights sleeping in hotel rooms. The movers officially arrive tomorrow morning to start packing up all of our stuff. They'll be here tomorrow & Thursday and then picking everything up on Friday. We officially leave the state of WA on Tuesday, a week from today and head to Astoria, OR (the location of "The Goonies" for all the movie/80s buffs out there). Each night we hope to add a new blog post so you can keep up to date with where we are that particular day and where we are headed the next day. We are stopping at some exciting places such as San Francisco, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon...just to name a few!

Even though we are extremely excited for our trip and looking forward to moving back to the East Coast to be closer to our family & friends, we are sad to be leaving the home we have known for the past 3 years. It hit me yesterday just how special this house has been to us.....it was the first one that we purchased, both Kylie & Jillian took their very first steps in the living room, both had their 1st birthdays in our kitchen & spread cake & frosting all over the table.....this house holds & will forever hold lots of great memories for our family, ones that we will cherish always!

Please keep our family in your prayers in the coming weeks for a safe trip across over 3000 miles till we reach Baltimore. We love & miss you all very much and cannot wait to see you all again VERY soon!! Please keep checking back daily for updates & stories of where we are in the U.S.















Our wonderful home in Bremerton, WA - we'll miss it!

Travel Safe and it's been a pleasure working with you both on the Purchase of your home and the soon to be Sale! Hopefully the slow real estate market will turn around quickly for you...
Let's keep in touch. I'll look forward to following your travels.
Best to you all... Doug Wray
