Good morning friends :)
This weekend was our neighborhood BBQ and we had such a blast! We live in relatively new construction so many people don't know each other and several are still moving in. It was great to bring everyone together and really start to build that community bond.
We live in Anacostia, which is a part of DC that has been struggling to reduce crime and keep up economically with the rest of the district. Safety was one of our biggest concerns when we decided to stay here with Hadley and it feels so good to have many others around us who are looking out for each other and have the same concerns. Everyone we have met in our community and out and about on the streets have been so friendly and we really couldn't be more excited about this new chapter!
Our coffee table arrived and our new rug for the family room should be here early next week. I'm so happy about how it's all coming together.
Yesterday Hadley and I did a little more exploring downtown and found a playground. She was the only kid in there but didn't seem to mind... I think she liked having the slide all to herself.
We'll be spending the rest of the week with Josh's parents who are in town for a last minute business conference. We love surprises like that! Today we'll be hitting up the zoo and I'm sure a splash water park will be in our near future. I hope you guys are having a great week :)
