A little of what we've been up to.....

I'm finally back up and running. We have been keeping pretty busy the last 2 months. It didn't take us long to get unpacked and settled in! I don't mess around when it comes to unpacking. I like to feel 'at home' as soon as possible. However, one day, Tim and I tried to hang some pictures. In that 2 hours, we got one hung! I just couldn't decide how/where I wanted some to hang. Oh well....
I don't know who loves being back in a house more: the kids or myself. They are totally enjoying the basement,yard, sidewalks, garage, and driveway! Everyday, as long as its not raining, we are out riding bikes. We have met many of our neighbors....most of whom have young kids! Taylor has made a new friend named Ainsley. We just recently attended the 2nd Annual block party on Saturday. Got to meet many of the other neighbors and their families. It was a great night!
So to keep this short, so nobody falls asleep, here is just a little bit of what we've been doing. Granted I could have posted the over 800 pictures I've had on my camera, but who wants to look thru ALL of those???!!!
Taylor starts Golf lessons today, so I'm sure I"ll be posting again soon!
Take care!!

Peyton and Kim drove up one day and we picked up some food, ate and played at the park.

This is a great pic of Colin! Only because half the time I want a picture, he turns his head or starts screaming!!

Colin and I drove to Burlington one Sunday to hang out, while Tim and Taylor went down to the Lake for a Golf Tournament.

Taylor participated in the Snake Alley Criterium's Kids bike race with cousins, Jayden, Jake, and Maddie. What fun that was!!!

Killing GINORMOUS spiders in the garage!!!!! I about freaked when I saw this!!! My poor neighbor walked over to make sure I was ok...apparently I scream a bit?!!!
