Ducks in a Row.

Wednesday is Ian's day off and since I don't work we spend the day together! Almost every week, we spend our day off driving around Portland, exploring neighborhoods and stopping at every house with a for sale sign out front. Most of my spare time is spent searching for houses online and when I find one that interests me, we print off the directions and check out the neighborhood. Most of the time we're disappointed with the results. Today was a different story. I fell in love and we didn't even walk inside. We drove by it 3 times and just couldn't get enough. It's the perfect starter home for us; slanted roof, big windows, and great price! So, we finally called a lender and will meet with him tomorrow so that we can actually go inside some of these houses we've been seeing. Not sure if this is the one but we are so excited to start the process! We'll see what ends up happening!

While we were driving around, we saw this little mommy duck with her baby ducks gathered around street grate or something and Ian insisted we stop because "what if one of the little ducklings fell through the grate and needs to be rescued?" So we pulled over and sure enough, two little ducklings had fallen through and Ian climbed in and got them!

The little family worried about the missing ducklings.

SO excited to be free! Haha!

The happy little family finally together again!

On another note, we also booked that anniversary trip I blogged about a while ago! We're going to Cancun and we will be doing all-inclusive! Thank you so much for your advice!
