Zoo Pics

I took my kids

to the zoo

and took exactly zero

pictures of kids

or animals.

Instead, I took pictures

of plants.


this means my new yard 

needs a lot of work!

Field Trip?

Krispy Kreme counts

as educational


We did talk about the process,

so I'm counting it!

We finally,


found a cello teacher for Mimi.

It's in a nearby town

that I LOVE.

They have a great library,

where Babycakes

and I hang out

while she has her lesson.

He's in love with these


And he lines them up

and makes our family!

New Neighbors!

A few weeks ago we heard from

a neighbor that the house

just down from ours

had sold to another transracial

adoptive family.

I think it could be really

fun to have a family near by that gets

the ins and outs of our lives!

They also have five kids,

so that could be a lot of fun,

or a lot of chaos!

I'm really hoping for both!

Raining, Pouring

It's been a rainy spring here!
 I asked a local if this was typical spring weather

and she said

"It has been kind of dry."

Kind of dry?!

We're gonna need a bigger boat!

Still Here!


we're still here!

We've been painting like crazy,

which is not only boring to do,

but boring to write about!

The good news is,

the tangerine walls are gone!

The bad news is,

we still have a lot of painting to do!

And what would

you do just

days after driving for hours

to go to the zoo?

Why, turn around

and drive right back

to meet friends

at the train museum!

Babycakes really wanted

to go climb on trains with his

buddy Max

for his birthday,

and we finally got to go,

only a few months late!

Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

We've been hoping

we could talk some friends

into meeting us

"half way"

between here

and our old home

and visit the zoo,

and we finally

had someone take us

up on the offer!

Finally Fridge!

Do you know how easy it is

to get used to keeping

all your cold food

in the garage?

Apparently, it just takes

a few months

for that to become totally normal!
But this?

This is beautiful!

This big ding

on my freshly patched,


and painted wall?

Not so pretty!

The delivery guys left

this 5 inch

owie in my living room.
