the last three weeks have flown by and also seem to have gone by super snail slow at the same time. on thursday we will officaly been here for 4 weeks... really? only 4 weeks?
i've tried to keep brody as busy as possible! every so often he still wants to go to campus, swimming and riding the bus. he also wants to go my friend lisa's house and see riker. and he talks about my friend heather's little girl Hadlee and also thinks our friends kelli and neal are coming over (i wish!). there is a little part of me that kinda hopes brody will always be able to remember his little part of life in ohio and his adventures. but i know it will begin to fade little by little and that makes me sad. but i know i've got plenty of pictures and stories to always tell him and remind him of amazing past times.
whether the time has been slow or fast, we've been trying to have lots of fun!
in the past 3 weeks...
we've lounged around some days and tried to get some last few items unpacked.
we've gone to the zoo a few times. it's pretty much pathetic compared to the columbus ohio zoo which is voted #1 in america. so you kinda can't compare. but pretty much the richmond animals live in the ghetto and columbus animals live in beverly hills. just sayin. one rad thing about the richmond zoo, you can feed the giraffes. and they have camels...so take that columbus! ;)nonetheless, brody loves it. so that's all that matters to me. (awe, did you just feel that warm fuzzy? yup, i'm a sap!)
we've built some pretty impressive towers with our legos. and how bout that mater bubble blower. pretty awesome? you betcha. it only cost us $1.67 on clearance at Target. we were sure there was something wrong with it. but nope. bomb.com!
we've painted lots!
we bought a pass to the Children's Museum which is fabulous! it's so fun and there is so much to do! my favortie part is the art area. you can color, paint, water color, do differnt crafts, amazing!
we've gone to the richmond science museum a few times. our passes to the science museum in ohio (cosi) gets us into the richmond science museum for free. so that's nice. the museums' builing use to be an old train station and they converted it into the science museum. it's a lovely building. there is the old train yard in the back of the museum with some old trains. pretty much brody was in heaven!
we've watched movies in the afternoons before nap and of course when watching a movie you need to have a yummy snack! lately, our favorite snack has been popcorn, m&m's and some milk duds. yum!
we've also been blessed with some awesome weather! and awesome weather = us being outside for as much time as possible! we live by a really cool park, that consist of lots of open land. a huge playground, a pond that you can feed the ducks (which we've done, of course!) and you can fish in it, and on top of it there is a large historical farm! the farm is also heaven for brody! everything is open to the public. so we just wonder all around the farm. it's so fun!
so busy, we've been. i am still kinda sad because i miss ohio and friends, can you tell? i feel like my post are boring and slightly whoa is me posts. but i must say, i am really happy to be in richmond. it's a wonderful place and beauitful! i'm not gonna lie, i am usually a champ with change and new things, but i am just still a little sad. perhaps part of living here so far makes me a little weepy is because it's so much like columbus, minus all the forests we are surrounded in. i am certain that soon my post will be so rock'in awesome that all of you are going to want to come and stay with us and take part in all the awesomeness that is richmond! :) right? RIGHT?
Alright...over and out...imaginary high-five!
