Over the weekend, we made the transition from Camaron's cousin's place in downtown DC to our new neighborhood in northwest DC. Our move was pretty fun. We didn't have any furniture since we found a furnished place, but we did have a ton of suitcases. Struggling with all our stuff + two kiddos on the metro didn't really sound appealing. So we used an Uber van to drive us and our stuff. Our driver was really neat and a DC native, so he had no problem navigating the crazy city traffic, and taught us a bit about the area. We made it to the new place, immediately unpacked, and went right to bed -we were worn out.
Where we'll be living the rest of this adventure is a little different from Camaron's cousin's apartment. To me, the difference is most obvious at night. The sound of ambulances and cars honking has been replaced by the sound of crickets and rustling leaves. What a huge change just a few miles up the road can be! Downtown was incredibly fun (and convenient!), but I'm really looking forward to the memories we'll make in our real place this fall.
Today, we visited a nearby park and it was so nice to just sit back and watch Fox climb up the stairs and then slide down the slide and do it over again a hundred times. Love that he's so independent now. He even made a new little friend and they followed each other around giggling for quite a while. I'm so glad we were able to find a place with parks nearby -that was on my wish list while we were searching for housing:)
