Majestic Rainier and Kevin's New Office Makes ZV Sleepy

This is the picture you can take from our balcony. Well, YOU can't take it, but Kevin can. Look at that view!!! Can you believe it? Ours, all ours.

Doesn't he look cool in his new office? Sahara sand or whatever they called it. I cannot remember.

Sweet sweet napping baby.

Bland Dinner

We thought it was going to ber great. We thought it was going to be tasty. Somehow, by the grace of God above, we both wanted to eat the same thing. It was a miracle. Until we tried it. What is this rubbish? Dressing so bland even a baby will eat it. At least there was wine. Is there any garlic in this garlic naan? I don't think so.

Officially Residents

At least our cars are! Here we are with our new license plates. It's so cool. All we had to do was walk down to the GROCERY STORE like 4 blocks from our house and apply. Funny that we walked, b/c I had to tell them things like mileage and we didn't have the cars with us!!! We love that so many things are so close to us around here. And I figured I'd fill out paperwork and then we'd be waiting 3 weeks or something for our new plates. Nuh-uh...the lady just opened a drawer, and voila! Here they are.

Now we just have to put them on the CARS. LOL. Well, Kevin is pretty against looking like a tourist around town, so I imagine it will happen soon. Wish me luck.

Hangin' on the PORCH!

Allright, you will now see why I fell in love with my porch. Check it out:

It is sooooooooooooooo gorgeous here. And look how cute my kid looks in the pretty chair on the porch. We were going to make my mom get rid of this furniture until we met our porch. I said, "If that furniture belongs anywhere, it's on that porch." And golly gee willikers if I wasn't right.

The weather has been gorgeous. They say it rains here a lot, but we sure haven't seen it. It's almost been a little too sunny for us. Sheesh, we are trying to escape that!

The neighbors have been so friendly and have given us all sorts of treats. Lots to do on the house, but it's been fun and Zane is having a blast. I think my mom even likes our new spicy pumpkin living room. She never thought she'd be living like this in "her old age" as she says.

And theeee coolest thing happened today. A friend of ours that we know through someone in Milwaukee who just happens to live here now, just walked RIGHT PAST OUR HOUSE! I had been meaning to get in touch with her and had just been too busy to track her down. She just walked her dog, RIGHT PAST OUR HOUSE. Turns out, her girlfriend lives 3 houses down and she is like 5 blocks away. HOW cool is that? And they also turned us on to the most awesome brunch place. Olympia ROCKS!

I am NOT in Wisconsin

Wow, what a time it's been. We are now offical residents of Olympia, WA.

The move was, well, what could you expect? Taking your smoker husband, somewhat infirm mother, and your 15 month old across the country? It was ok, considering. Here is Zane at the Milwaukee airport the day of our departure...

Yes, he's in his jammies.

We have been working hard on our new house. We LOVE it. We love our neighborhood. We love our city. We love our yard. It's been great. We have no jobs yet, but that will come. Well, not for me. My job is currently homemaker and I'm liking it. Ha ha ha, just got a message from the Monster Job Agent. Gotta love universal timing.

I will try to do more on this later. It is not working now. Grrrr.

Getting the HOUSE!

Well, it's been a few days of living at the Red Lion, Olympia. We looooooooove the Red Lion, Olympia, but we are looking forward to moving into our new digs. Here we are on the way to our first visit after officially getting the house!!!

It was a beautiful June night and we were all in good spirits and so happy to be HOME!

Here's the moon over our new home:

I'm sure I'll have a lot more to say about our adventures in Oly. Stay tuned. :)
