We are now officially residents of Dawson City!
And boy, I am SO glad we decided to do it in 6 days instead of 5. The shorter days made all the difference with the twins. Also, my idea of bringing a laptop that we could play movies for them on made a big difference too! The trip was awesome... so much wildlife as you get further north... bears, bison, sheep, moose, caribou... all on the side, or in the MIDDLE of the road! haha
We're all set up.... bank accounts at the new bank, have a PO box... all the good stuff. :vibes: It is such a cute little town, and everyone is so friendly. Everyone knows everyone, it's so great. The sun sets at something like 11:09 (and it's light for much later) and rises at 4 or so.... it's only down for a couple hours! (Steph, I'm sure you know what it's like!) And opposite in the winter, I'm sure.
We're having a bit of trouble (and not much hope) finding a place. We are staying in a hotel for now. It's a huge room with a full-sized stove and fridge, a good sized bathroom and even a private balcony. It's a little more than we want to spend, but it's definitely working for now. It's just one room, so when the twins go to bed at 5:30, we have to creep around... but they are getting into a rhythm and we're glad for that!
I am secretly hoping that we can somehow find money for a down payment on a cute little house I found for sale. I don't think it's likely, but keep your fingers crossed!! :vibes:
UPDATE - Pics! :vibes:
Helping pack the kitties!
Spark helping pack her toys.
Spark was having a hard time sleeping at one of the hotels. I took her and she fell asleep almost immediately. She never sleeps with us or in our arms so this was a little treat :vibes: So sweet!
Spark in our new "home", trying to put on her pants by herself.
I realized I didn't have many of Silas for some reason... then I knew why. He doesn't sit still long enough. Here he is throwing around his shirt (the blue blur). :vibes:
Our new "home", with the twins in bed for the night. The sheets over their cribs are so they don't crawl/fall out.
From the other side... don't mind the mess
View from our balcony, mostly RV park.
View from our door. That road is the famous Klondike Highway.
