Zoe and Brandon's First TownHouse

The first thing we did on Sunday morning was make a Costco run. We had like zero food and it was getting dire, so off we went. We drove home, unloaded the groceries and then got back into the car and drove 30 minutes to Zoe and Brandon's new place.

They closed on their new townhouse while we were on vacation and had been busy moving everything while we'd been driving home on Saturday. (We planned our vacation about 2 weeks before they found out there settlement date!) They were able to snag an end unit town that has a wooded lot next to them and a small driveway. It's really nice and a great size starter home. It has a lot of upgrades but could certainly use more and as time goes on I see them adding their personal touches to improve the place.

I didn't take many pictures because everything was still pretty much in boxes and all over the place since they'd literally moved in the day before but I'll make sure to get some when things are a little more put together. While we were there we did our best to help with that day's task which was organizing the kitchen. It's always a chore to figure out what fits where when you move into a new place and this new kitchen seems to have less room than the old one so there's some work to be done. Tony hung a curtain rod over the sliders in the kitchen and Zoe got her curtains hung and we all did our best to unload boxes and figure out where to put things...

When we'd done what we could and Zoe and Brandon were pooped out we headed over to the IKEA that is about 5 minutes from their house to get some idea's for the new place. We decided to go ahead and eat dinner as well because it was getting late and we were going to have to head back home. 

I'm looking forward to going back once they're a little more settled and taking more pictures; hopefully on the next day Zoe's off work.
