Well, Doug got a phone call on September 11, saying that they wanted him to start his new job in Utah ASAP. He told them the earliest he could start was October 1st. So from there, we were in a scramble to pack and get moving plans underway! Doug's parents were generous enough to fly out and help us pack, drive, and move in to our new place.
Here was one of our last nights in Arizona, when Doug took me our for my birthday dinner.
Later that afternoon, Jack had an early birthday/going away party with all his Arizona friends. The theme was, of course, superheroes and villains. He had a great time and got hooked up with some good stuff.
Not quite sure what Lincoln's face was all about here.
The only specific thing Jack requested was a Spider-Man pinata. That thing was so tough, we eventually had to unhook it from the string and just have Jack beat the poop out of it until he broke it open.
I hope you have a great Halloween with your friends. I love you. I miss your dog. You're my best friend.
Me and daddy are going to Boondocks tomorrow. I wish you could come, too. I like Utah a lot. I like our house.
And here's the picture he drew for him.
Goodbye, Arizona! Thank you for everything, and we will miss you dearly.
