Growing up, my sister and my mom and I lived in a cute little house on a street called Greenridge.  When my mom got re-married (when I was in 5th grade), we moved out of our house on Greenridge and into a house with my step-dad.  My mom never sold Greenridge, and just rented it out.  Then, about 1 year before Matt and I got married, I moved out of my Dad's house and back into Greenridge by myself.  After Matt and I got married, we lived in Greenridge for about 3 years before we moved into the house that we live in now.  Since we moved out, my mom has continued to rent out the house.  The house is currently free of any tenants, and my mom is doing some renovations to it.  This house will always hold a special place in my heart.  It's where I grew up.  I had friends over.  Played outside all day.  Had slumber parties, halloween parties, birthday parties.  It's just such a good place in my memory.  Not to mention that this is the house that I spent my first few married years in.  Matt and I had our first holidays together here.  We had numerous game nights here.  We had lots of friends over.  I finished out my last years of college in this house.  I just have so many great memories here.

A few weeks ago, we went out to dinner and swung by Greenridge on the way home.  Mom had to get quite a few trees cut down recently, and I wanted to see how it looked.  LL has been to Greenridge a few times before (and she loves it and wants us to live there - haha), but Cooper has never been.  I'll be honest, I had a moment as it was a full circle to see my kids standing on the porch where I grew up.

Me and my babies at my childhood house!

One of the renters put up some swings in the backyard from the oak tree.  LL loves to swing on them, so we took a few minutes to do that before heading home.  You can see the videos here:
