It's official, we are no longer living in California! Though I'm not sure staying in a hotel is "living" anywhere, though I frequently refer to it as "home".
We said goodby to the condo...but more emotionally a see-you-later to all of the wonderful friends we made in our little community. I'd have to say if I could bring along the people we've become so close to in our past two homes, and they could all live in the same neighborhood, we'd have a really awesome neighborhood!
After about 10 hours of driving we arrived in Henderson, NV.
The kids were very excited by the balcony off of our suite.
On Saturday we did some house hunting. Afterwards we had lunch at an Italian restaurant next to a shoe repair shop. They also had a minivan converted into a bootvan.
We explored the Summerlin area on Sunday. The mountains here are beautiful.
We had an early dinner at Taco y Taco...this place is very good! We had the El Pastor tacos. The preparation was entertaining and the tacos were delicious. We were even spoiled with a free ear of street style corn on the cob. I think this must be a newer restaurant - they don't yet have a website to share. The Yelp reviews are here.
Monday found us with a sick Arlo. He had a fever and was generally miserable. By Tuesday he was feeling better but not 100%. Today he seems to be his old self, which I am very grateful for. Being sick in a strange place makes being sick even worse.
Today we had a little cloud cover, which cooled things down a bit. Our realtor predicted a cooler night because of the clouds. It was pleasant on our balcony this evening, and we even had this beautiful sunset!
So our first few days are going ok. I look forward to establishing some routines and having a home-base, but that will come in time. I have realized there is a lot of exploring to do, which is very exciting!
