We had a fun weekend enjoying what our new home has to offer. On Saturday we went to the Children's Museum. Alex was thrilled to see the Dino display. Anika was very happy too and loved the animals. After that we went to a Latin American restaurant. It was great complete with music. Alex beamed the whole time. The third picture is him in the restaurant. We have decided it will be our special occasion place. Alex has already said that he wants to go there for his adoption day meal. We were so full and it was still early so we decided to hit the arboretum for a walk. They have a butterfly house this time of the year and the kids loved this bench. The house was closed for the night so we will have to go back. Today we hung around the house and just played and watched TV. Later in the afternoon we hit the park with the splash pad that Alex just goes crazy for. Anika was brave today and even walked through the water. It was a really nice weekend and I am excited about all there is to do here. I still feel a bit like we are on vacation and I don't think it will hit me we live here now until school starts. I hope Alex loves his school here as much as he did in our old town. He had so much fun and was so happy there.

Coming up for air....

The last two weeks have been a blur. We are in our new house and getting settled. Anika was not happy at all the first two days but now seems to be adjusting to her new home. Alex was sad the first night and cried for our old house but since then has been excited about his new swing set and the wonderful "splash park" around the corner from the house etc.... It is a big change and we will really miss the friends we made the last two years and small town living. There is so much more to say but I am still trying to process this all myself. I will miss our old town and I also am looking forward to what this bigger area has to offer.

We had a great family visit over the 4th while we were mid move. So far no offers on the house...
