the near future

I guess I should take a minute to catch up on the blog. We have been very busy with moving, cleaning out our old place, unpacking, and working. We FINALLY finished cleaning out our old place today and we still have several boxes sitting around the apartment. Photos will be posted of the new place once we are fully unpacked.

The day after we moved in, some friends of ours came to stay with us for a few days. This was planned long before we knew when we would be moving, but it worked out okay even though we were constantly trying searching through boxes trying to find things that we needed.

Our friends (Scott and Amber with their little boy Weston) came to LA so that Tom and Scott could go to a nerd convention (Tom has asked me not to divulge more details), but we had some extra time to enjoy some of what LA has to offer.

We started out with a trip to the Griddle Cafe for some gigantic pancakes, french toast, and eggs. We had never been, but several people have recommended it and we were not disappointed. We then headed over to Griffith park to ride the trains and play at the playground. We spent some time at the beach:And made Harper's first trip to Disneyland (actually, this was also my first trip).Harper LOVED having Weston around to play with. They enjoyed "playing" the piano together:
And eating graham crackers and playing with toys:And hanging out with Tom and Scott while they played video games:
We had a great time and would LOVE to have more visitors in the future, especially now that we have a larger apartment.

From what I can see in the pics, the apartment looks really nice!
