Catch up post number two

Okay - day two to catch up with some pictures! By tomorrow I will be all caught up and back on track for Saturday. If you missed the first set of pictures, please look at the post below this one to see pictures of our trip to the north when we were in Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Today's pictures are from moving day and our first few days in the area. I took a few pictures of the kids, some plants in our front yard (that I am still trying to figure out what they are) and some of our area. Also, one of our favorite house on our block! (besides our own, of course). I don't know if I posted or not, but we met a third neighbor. Actually she is the owner of said favorite house! Her name is Mary and they built their home and have lived here for 14 years. She and her husband have four children ages 14,12,10, and 7. The 7 year old is a little girl, so we are hoping that she and Arlington can play a little. She is a 1st grader, so not too much older. They have a pool and invited us down to swim any time we wanted. It is so nice to meet such nice neighbors.

In the pictures you will see a lot of wooded areas and some road. That area is what leads back into our house. We have a small road at the back of the cul-de-sac that is lines with stone ledges on either side and planters and that leads back to our area. It is really nice. I took the pictures while we were out on one of our walks through the neighborhood.

There is also a picture of Arlington with box stickers all over her arm. Each box is marked with a lot number sticker and as the boxes and items were coming in, she decided to decorate herself with the numbers. She is hilarious. She kept them on all day.

And there are two pictures of the deer we saw in our back yard. They aren't great pictures because I took them through the glass, but you can see them pretty well.
