It's been fun here but a little tough not having girlfriends and their children to be with to be able to have some adult conversation and kids to play with my girls. Luckily there are lots of sights and places to go here to keep us entertained. We love all of the malls and the open air market's here. It's especially nice since it's been so mild here. Today was our hottest day at 81 degrees. I could get used to that!
We got to go hang out with my friend Alla and her cute little girls today. Alla is a friend that I met in Arizona. In fact she was one of the first people I met when we first moved to Arizona and she totally helped me feel welcomed and her oldest daughter Lexi was Lauren's first friend in AZ. Now we move here and we don't have any other friends and low and behold we have Alla who lives here now and is here to help us feel at home again! I am so thankful!
Alla invited us to this great mall near her place today called Southlands. It is beautiful and they have a little farmers market every Thursday and Saturday. I got some gorgeous veggies at amazing prices. Cheaper than in the stores and more beautiful! In the center of the court is a little splash pad. We took the girls swimming suits and they had fun but were shaking because they were so cold! It was still fun though. Then we went to lunch at one of my favs. Paradise Bakery and Cafe and then did a little shopping. It was a great day!
Check out these pretty vegetables! Oh and I just love my little Kristen's pot belly! Obviously Lauren does too...she's poking it in one of the pictures :)
