Strange Visit Today

We had a family we did not know come over to visit today! They didn't come to see us but our house. They lived in our house when their baby was born and now live in PA. They were visiting the beach and decided to visit their old house! Their "baby" looked around 10!
How cool is that?!?!?!?
It made me think about my guys and all their firsts that happened in this house. Matthew came home to this house. He walked, talked and started school here. His training wheels came off his bike here. He was stung by a bee jumping down from the tree in the front yard. Aspen started middle school here and as of tomorrow high school! She lost her last tooth here. She has countless sleepovers here. She learned how to cook in this kitchen and how to do laundry in this laundry room.
One day will I not only ask for a picture under the address on my from porch but will I ask to come in and see if the hash marks we made to see if Matthew will be tall enough to ride Everest at Disney are still on the wall? Will the new people cut down the perfect tree climbing tree in the backyard? Will they leave candy on the porch while the whole family goes trick-or-treating? Will they make all the awesome memories we have made? Will it be just a house or a home?
I can't seem to find a picture of the front of the house on the computer. Oh well the Halloween picture of the front porch still gives the HOME feeling :)
