We are all loving the new digs. I am in love with having a backyard. While we had one in the other house, it was tiny and not useable for the girls. I feel like we've got another huge new playroom for them. It is completely fenced in (a must for toddlers and dogs).
The house is bigger than our old one, but still has 3 bedrooms. We turned the third bedroom into the girls' playroom. Toys all over the living and dining room drove me nuts in the old place! Jenn and I are thrilled to have a master ensuite in this house. We also love the massive closets in every room.
There are tons of windows, including two skylights on the second floor, so the house gets lots of natural light. Even on cloudy days, it doesn't feel dark in here.
We also love the location. We are a stones throw to tons of great restaurants, shops, parks etc. This was something that we loved about living downtown and weren't ready to give up. We also have parking for two cars. This is a huge luxury when you live in the heart of the city.
We are surprisingly settled for not even being here for a week. We were lucky enough to have my parents take the girls for two days at the end of last week. We were able to get a ton of stuff unpacked. Moving with young kids is definitely tough!
