Wow, Flying a Kite is More Fun Than I Remember!

Today is the end of the 3rd week of my 5 weeks of parental leave from work. We’ve done lots of fun things as a family, but honestly today was one of the highlights so far! I can’t remember the last time I flew a kite but I’m sure it’s been literal decades.

The feeling of getting the kite up in the air and keeping it there is very satisfying, and then being able to hand it off to your daughter and have her take control is a Big Dad moment. 10/10 would recommend.

Happy 2nd Birthday Evie! 🥳🎉🎂

Today is Evie’s 2nd birthday. In case there were any doubts she’s my daughter, check out this picture!

We had such a good time celebrating her birthday today (and getting out on the bike), and Julia made a delicious pink cake that was so good!

What a Difference 5 Years Makes

Left: The view from our front bedroom window, shortly after moving in, on April 27, 2014. Right: The view from our front bedroom window, 1 day after moving in to our new house, on June 7, 2019.

We finished our move on Thursday, June 6 in to our new house, and we couldn’t be happier about it! The view at our old place has changed quite a bit since we first moved in (the lot across the street is fully developed now, and the building you can see has been demolished, for example), but you seriously can’t beat our new view!

Our new house was a can’t-miss from both of us mostly because of the excellent location, and since moving in, it’s been just as excellent as we expected! Who knows what the next 5 years will bring for our family!!
